Winter Tyre giant strengthens its summer tyre expertise

Nokian Tyres will add a new test centre in Spain in addition to the two test centres that they have in Finland. They will now be able to test and develop even better tyres for the summer seasons, through summer tyre testing capabilities. Nokian Tyres have previously tested summer tyres in both in South Africa and in Southern Europe. With this centre, they will be able to further enhance the development to continuously improve the performance of the tyres.


Tyre Testing

The new centre will be finished in 2020 and will have 10 different tracks for summer tyre testing. The two test centres that they have in Finland in Nokia and Ivalo are great for testing summer tyres in Nordic summer conditions.  Winter tyre testing will be done  in extreme snow and ice conditions.  When it comes to winter tyres, Nokian Tyres is the world leader. By adding this centre it will be able to cover all seasons and weather climates.

Adding research and development facilities shows that Nokian Tyres is committed to continuously develop betted and safer tyres for all weather conditions. They produce tyres for both cars, electric cars, SUVs and trucks. Even  tyres for big trucks and heavy tyres for heavy duty machines are produced by Nokia Tyres.


Importance of Testing

You will only be able to improve the rubber compounds and the tread design by continuous testing. They will need to test rolling resistance, wet grip, brake distance and tyre wear. They will test how they perform at high speeds and how they can take corners.


If you will invest in a set of Nokian Tyres summer tyres, you will know that you will get a tyre from a producer with a lot of commitment in producing great tyres for every season. If you want optimal performance from your tyre during the summer, you need to invest in a dedicated summer tyre.
