Nexen Expands Passenger, SUV/CUV Winter Tire Lineup

WinGuard WinSpike tires for passenger vehicles, SUVs and CUVs from Nexen Tire America Inc. have a new tread design for better winter performance and are available in 20 new sizes.

The redesigned WinGuard WinSpike WH62 for passenger vehicles and the WinGuard WinSpike WS62 for CUV/SUV vehicles feature improved performance in snowy/icy conditions and expanded size lineups to meet more of the market demands.

Redeveloped from the ground up, these two new WinGuard WinSpike models now deliver enhanced snow/ice performance thanks to an optimal arrangement of stud lines.

The WH62 and WS62 now feature 20 stud lines instead of their predecessors’ 12. Nexen says this improvement maximizes grip and minimizes stud noise.

Nexen says it has also improved braking and handling by applying a new square-type contact patch with the road surface. This feature, combined with a new compound that offers greater flexibility at lower temperatures ensures the best snow/ice performance yet from Nexen.

The 20 size additions from the WinGuard WinSpike WH62 and the WinGuard WinSpike WS62 create more opportunities than ever for dealers to find fitments for various vehicles.

The size expansion means Nexen's winter offerings now covers up to 85% of the U.S. winter tire market.

As an additional feature to help dealers present these impressive winter patterns to consumers, Nexen also offers 36 months of roadside assistance.

Both the WinGuard WinSpike WH62 and the WinGuard WinSpike WS62 are available for factory direct container orders now.
