Nokian Heavy Tyres is launching the Nokian NTR 52 steer tyre, an all season tyre for trucks and buses for long and medium haul operations. This tyre meets the EURO 6 load carrying capacity requirements and has a higher load index than its predecessor, the Nokian NTR 32. It also has the M+S label which indicates its good performance in mud and fresh snow.
The new tread compound and construction of the Nokian NTR 52 are designed to offer users good durability and optimum grip in all weather and driving conditions.

As the tyre wears down, its grooves become more zigzag shaped, improving the tyre’s performance to offer increasedlateral support and improved driving stability. These zigzag grooves also reduce stone trapping. “These features ensure that the tyre works reliably, even when worn” says Teppo Siltanen, Product Manager for Truck Tyres at Nokian.

The Nokian NTR 52 is designed for the European, Russian and Scandinavian markets. It is available in the sizes 315/70R22.5, 315/80R22.5 and 295/80R22.5.
