Nokian Tractor King – spreading the revolution with more sizes

Nokian Tyres launched a whole new type of tractor tire. Combining the strength of an earthmoving tire with a new kind of lug pattern, the versatile new Nokian Tractor King tire pushed the boundaries of tractor work in demanding forestry, earthmoving and road maintenance applications. Now eight new sizes spread the revolution even further.

 

With the increase in machine weights, horsepower and road speeds come the need for a new kind of tractor tire. Nokian Tractor King tire is brimming with innovation, challenging users to push the limits of tractor work. With the high load capacity of 320 kPa, Nokian Tractor King tire also supports the use of heavy tractor accessories.

“Forestry, earthmoving and road maintenance are examples of work that can benefit from Nokian Tractor King tire”, says Teemu Vainionpää, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres. “Tough conditions call for strong carcass and Aramid-reinforced sidewalls, while road transports in speeds up to 65 km/h become smoother with the clever new pattern design.”

The new tractor tire is already in use in many countries. “The users have been impressed with the extra traction provided by the tire’s double lug pattern”, Teemu says. “Mud or slippery rocks, the wide contact area improves the tire’s grip and handling.”

 

15 different sizes

In 2018, Nokian Tractor King tire was first made available in seven sizes:

540/65R28

540/70R30

600/65R34

600/70R34

650/65R38

650/75R38

710/75R42.

 

To make the tire compatible with even wider range of machinery,

eight new sizes are now available for orders, with the deliveries beginning in July:

500/65R28

600/60R28

540/65R30

600/70R30

620/75R30

600/65R38

650/85R38

710/70R42.

 

“We want to spread the revolution, of course”, Teemu Vainionpää says. “That’s why it’s essential to make Nokian Tractor King tire available for a wide range of machines.”
