Nokian, Finland – Nokian Heavy Tyres is introducing a wider selection of tire sizes for its Noktop 86.
The tire is used for earthmoving applications and the sizes now cover 315/80R22.5 and 13R22.5.
“The world of mining, for example, places heavy demands on tires, since the routes are difficult to move in. Avoiding obstacles is not always possible in the narrow tunnels. The Nokian Noktop 86 is especially designed for challenging work locations,” said Teppo Siltanen, product manager for Truck Tyres at Nokian Heavy Tyres.
The firm said the tread is designed for short transfers, and in particular for off-road use on special vehicles. The large-block tread pattern and wide grooves ensure "good" cleaning and grip properties.
