Nokian Heavy Tyres, Nokia, Finland, 19 June 2018 – Nokian Tractor King is a new no-compromise tractor tyre for the heaviest of machinery and the most difficult terrain in forestry, earthmoving and road construction. The design from all-new tread pattern to fortified carcass is nothing short of revolutionary in a tractor tyre.

The demands set for an ultimate tractor tyre have grown difficult to meet since machine weights, horsepower and road speeds have all increased. For safe and sustainable forestry, earthmoving and road construction Nokian Tyres now presents the new Nokian Tractor King. With the supreme durability and traction of this tyre the horsepower of tractors can be transferred to the ground like never before, pushing the boundaries of what can be done with a tractor.

 

Peace of mind in all conditions

 

Nokian Tractor King is revolutionary from surface to core. It essentially has the carcass of a heavy-duty earthmoving tyre, complete with steel belts, extra cord layers and Aramid-reinforced sidewalls. This combined with strong rubber compound makes it extremely resistant against cuts and punctures of forestry, earthmoving and road construction work.

 

Many lugged tyres suffer from vibration problems, worsening with speed and tyre wear. Nokian Tractor King offers smooth ride on high speeds as well. Its durability, wear-resistance and environmentally friendly production process make it a sustainable choice for modern forestry, giving the driver peace of mind in all conditions.
