Nokian touts run-flat winter tires
Nokian Tyres plc is adding run-flat capabilities to its main winter tire lines.
"Delivery of tires with run-flat properties will begin September 2005," say Nokian officials.
"Use of run-flat tires is increasing at a very quick rate. Although run-flat products held only a small share of the European tire market in 2004 (about 25%), sales saw a threefold increase over the previous year."
Nokian has not said if or when its run-flat winter tires will be available in North America.
