The Nokian HT SUV is at its best on asphalt, but it also functions excellently off the main roads: with an SUV you can slip away from the smooth main road onto the twisty small roads, tracks that are covered in sand and gravel and difficult to drive on.
The structure of the Nokian HT SUV is designed for versatile SUV driving. The steel belt is covered with a jointless nylon belt which improves the road response of the tyre. The reinforced edge areas of the belt and the single wire bead ensure it can cope with hard use. The asymmetrical tread gives the tyre precise and safe control on dry roads and in wet conditions. The stone removers in the main grooves of the tread prevent small stones becoming embedded in the grooves and tread pattern. The self cleaning tread minimises the amount of jagged stones that get stuck in the tyre. For driving on sandy roads and other soft surfaces, there are off-road claws moulded into the shoulder area, bevels and straight cornered protectors. The off-road claws grip the surface of the road which makes traction and braking more efficient.
Nokian Cool Silica – tread compound guarantees grip in all conditions
The new silica tread compound, Nokian Cool Silica, has been designed for particularly demanding and changeable conditions where large fluctuations in temperature are typical. The tyre has excellent grip on both wet and dry roads. Wear resistance is top quality. Following our principles of durable safety, the tyre properties are consistent throughout its working life. The new Double Mud Stopper contact area construction increases the operational life of the tyre and rims The mud stopper prevents dirt, mud and small stones getting caught between the tyre and the rim. The wide range of sizes available for the T and H speed categories of Nokian’s newest member of the summer product family, the Nokian HT SUV tyre, covers all of the most popular SUVs sold in Europe.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
