he new Nokian iLine for small and medium-sized cars rolls pleasantly and safely in any summer weather. This summer tyre from Nokian Tyres offers first-class fuel efficiency, which amounts to greener driving. The top-notch driving feel remains stable and reliable even under extreme conditions. The unique Venturi Grooves effectively prevent aquaplaning and the pine oil added to the rubber compound maximises tyre durability.
The new summer tyre from the world’s northernmost tyre manufacturer supplements the selection of Nokian Tyres premium summer tyres for the increasingly varied Central European summer weather. The wide size selection (13–16 inches) is excellently suited for drivers who want to stay safe on rain-soaked asphalt and sun-scorched gravel roads alike. The most common speed ratings are T (190 km/h) and H (210 km/h). The entire size selection will be made available to drivers during the spring of 2016.
Better mileage, lower noise
The new Nokian iLine has low rolling resistance and good wear resistance thanks to several technological innovations. The hemispherical, golf ball-like indentations on the walls of the longitudinal ribs cool the tyre down. This new Silent Groove Design reduces air resistance and increases the range of the vehicle through lower fuel consumption.
The design of the sides of the longitudinal ribs also controls the interior and exterior rolling noise of the vehicle. The indentations guide the airflow, removing the noise waves caused by the edges of the transversal grooves and thereby preventing that unpleasant, howling sound.
The new Nokian iLine Silica tread compound is a skilful combination of safety and eco-friendliness. Pine oil has been added to the full silica compound that guarantees commendable wet grip under all conditions. Pine oil effectively reduces the temperature of the rubber compound by reducing the friction caused by inter-molecular movement. The Nokian iLine lasts longer and rolls lightly, consumes less fuel and minimises harmful emissions.
