Nokian introduces wheel loader tire
Nokian Tyres plc has rolled out a new wheel loader tire, the Nokian Loader Grip 2, which is available in size 15.5R25.
"Tailored for wheel loaders, the block-patterned tire has angular blocks -- square-shaped at the shoulder -- that hold their grip when loading the vehicle on soft gravel or in transition driving on icy, slippery roads," say Nokian officials.
The first size, 15.5R25, is designed for lighter loaders with working weights of 10 tons. More sizes will be introduced in 2010.
