Summer driving with your SUV

All-season tires are a great choice for summer driving with your SUV. Since SUVs are heavier than passenger cars, high-quality tires are important. Even though SUVs have four-wheel drive, good tires are important so they can maintain strong traction – especially in summer, when summer rains increase the risk of hydroplaning. A high-quality all-season tire can provide protection against hydroplaning, as the tread is designed for this.

There are many high-quality all-season tires on the market, like the Nokian Rotiiva HT, which is great for SUVs and light trucks. It features the new high modulus tread compound, stone ejectors, silent groove design, Silent Sidewall technology and polished grooves, along with offering low rolling resistance. This makes the tire a fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly product. These features combine with Aramid Sidewall technology, which has puncture resistance with help of strong aramid fibers incorporated into the sidewall. All of this boosts the chance of a safe ride. The tire even has a driving safety indicator (DSI) patented by Nokian Tyres that allows the driver to inspect the tires to see when the tread depth is less than 4 millimeters, which could indicate a risk for hydroplaning.

The Nokian Rotiiva HT is an all-season tire that can be used from spring to fall but should not be used in winter. It is made up of the most advanced highway tread design with Nokian Tyres’ industry-leading technologies. The Silent Sidewall technology actually helps cut out noise and vibration carried over from the driving surface from the tire, so this tread design will allow ultra-quiet highway driving while protecting against hydroplaning with its staggered lateral grooves, which effectively remove water. Stone ejectors minimize the penetration of sharp stones into the tire, so it can even be used off-road.

All-season tires are a good solution for summer driving, since its tread design allows for the best in hydroplaning protection while allowing durability and comfortable summer highway driving in a way that’s tailored to SUVs. Another advantage of an all-season tire is the possibility of keeping one set of tires throughout the year at least if your geographical area does not experience true winter weather that requires snow tires.

The Roughest Conditions For Tires Must Be Within Mining

Just looking at the mining environment you can imagine that this is some of the roughest conditions. You need to have ultra-durable tires for them to survive in this type of an atmosphere and you need to have really heavy equipment. These machines have to be able to carry enormous loads as well as be able to drive up and down from the mines. So, you need to have superb traction and engines that can power the equipment with these loads despite the uphill.

Sharp rocks and stones combined with extreme loads make this probably the toughest environment only for the toughest tires. The sizes of these tires are impressive and some of the biggest ones are enormous, so you can just imagine changing one of these tires. If a tire will crack or get cut and a tire needs to be changed, it will be both costly and time consuming and reduce the intended output. This is the main reason that when the tire selection is done, there is a lot of emphasis on how crack and cut resistant the tires are and how durable they are, to ensure that you improve output and limit any expensive downtime.

You often tend to have different tires for the different operating conditions, where underground loading applications, which are able to provide an extremely cut and crack resistant tire to protect the tires from accidental cuts in the harsh mining operations. They also have to manage extreme loads to ensure a smooth operation with as little downtime as possible.

Nokian Tyres offer special mining tires to ensure that you get long operating time out of the tires.  These tires are made with an extreme cut and crack resistant tire compound. The remaining tread depth can easily be checked from the side of the tire, through a groove indicator, which makes it easy to quickly make an assessment.

Some of the main equipment used in mining are the mine loader underground also known as LDL, load-haul-dump loaders, articulated dump truck, drill rigs, wheeled excavators. The needs are pretty much the same for all the tires for these equipment, long lasting durable tires with good cut and crack resistance to avoid any downtime due to tire failure. Check the tires technical manual to make your selection and check the tire pressure.

Logger Tires

Long gone are the days when loggers mainly relied mainly on axes and saws. Today it is about heavy machinery and heavy tires, even though chainsaws are still around. In big scale forestry they are being less frequently used as todays equipment can fell, take away the branches and cut it into perfect length all within the same machine.

Today most of the work is done with heavy equipment like a harvester to cut the tree down and removing the limbs and then bucking it before a skidder drags the log out from the stump to the landing, where it can then be further shipped of by a logger truck.

Great tires for today’s loggers that rely on heavy machinery to get the job done, is the new Nokian Logger King LS-2 from Nokian Tyres, are outstanding logger tires that are durable and made for the heavy and rough terrain you will experience within forestry. When you place these beauties on your skidder you are ready to meet any challenges. They are ultra durable and puncture resistant so that you can maximize the up time. You can even use this tire with tracks, if circumstances require that.

When Your Business Depends On It

If your business depends on that your heavy equipment deliver day in and day out, you need to make sure that you have superior tires. Tires that are durable enough and have low wear, this is to ensure that you don’t loose production time by having to change tires or ending up with a flat tire. Heavy equipment tires have to be much more durable than tires for smaller vehicles. The cost implications for any downtime can be huge, so you will need to make sure that the tires that you choose will be able to handle the roughest environments combined with changing weather conditions.

When you have heavy equipment, it is a benefit if you can drive them on normal roads to the place where they will perform their duties. This saves a lot of logistical challenges and costs, but from the tire perspective it puts a lot of extra demands on them, as in addition to being ultra durable and wear resistant, they now also need to manage to drive in high speeds on normal roads between the projects. This requires that you don’t have a high heat buildup in the tire, as that would increase the wear drastically. This is when heavy truck tires come into the picture.

The tires also have to be designed for the extremely heavy load, as you don’t want the tread to crack during a shift, due to very heavy load. There is a lot of research going into optimizing the treads to ensure that they will give the tire the best performance. The treads might just look rugged, but they will have been carefully designed with every shape and every groove having a purpose. It will both give the sturdiness, the grip, and the ability to push away mud or snow. It will also be able to protect the tire from rupturing. As you can imagine this combination of different factors that the tires have to live up to combined with the fact that any downtime can be very costly requires very strict requirements in terms of quality and performance.

So regardless of what machinery or requirement you might have, Nokian Tyres have a vast offering of tires for most types of heavy machinery and they have also the experience from hard Nordic winter weather and over 80-year experience from making winter tires, which means that they can perform well even in the cold winter conditions.
