The new Nokian Hakka Truck Steer is designed to provide reduced wear, low rolling resistance, and high grip on wet and snowy roads, and has extremely low noise.
The all-weather long and medium haul steering axle tire features a specially developed sipe technology and an innovative tread pattern.
“Nokian Hakka Truck Steer is packed with innovations. One of them is a whole new type of sipe activator – which we call ‘Oka’ (Finnish for ‘thorn’) because of their shape,” explained Teppo Siltanen, product manager at Nokian Heavy Tyres.
“First of all, the wider tread and even wear pattern give better mileage. Also, we sat down to innovate ways to prevent stone trapping. We came up with a new kind of stepped rock resistors on the groove walls, making the tire carcass less susceptible to damage from stone drilling.”
