New low profile, all-weather tires – Nokian Hakka Truck tire family expands to 60-series
Nokian Heavy Tyres, Nokia, Finland, November 26, 2019 – The low-profile 60-series truck tires have become popular with low-chassis height trucks which are towing high-capacity semi-trailers. From the end of 2019, Nokian Hakka Truck Drive and Nokian Hakka Truck Steer tires will be available in new 60-series sizes, enabling new types of trucks to benefit from their well-balanced all-weather properties.
The Nokian Hakka Truck product family is a series of truck and bus tires optimized for year-round medium and long-haul transports on Central European roads. Carrying the 3PMSF marking, the entire range is well suited for changing weather conditions and all kinds of road surfaces.
“Nokian Hakka Truck tires strike an excellent balance between features”, says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres. “Comfortable ride and precise steering response, good grip in all conditions and excellent mileage due to even wear shape – it’s all there.”
The grip that lasts
Some of the most distinctive Nokian Hakka Truck features are the open design and deep, effective sipping. They make sure that the grip remains even when the tire wears down. “A long service life means more economical and sustainable use”, Siltanen says. “What’s more, the tire’s low rolling resistance means lower fuel consumption and more quiet operation.”
New 60-series sizes
Starting from the end of 2019, the Nokian Hakka Truck tires are available for steer and drive axle positions in low profile 60-series sizes. For steer axle, the new Nokian Hakka Truck Steer size is 315/60R22.5. For drive axle, there are new Nokian Hakka Truck Drive sizes 315/60R22.5 and 295/60R22.5.
“There is a growing need for low profile tires for low chassis height trucks with high-capacity semi-trailers”, Teppo Siltanen says. “Quality tires bring peace of mind for the driver and the entire operation.”
