(Updates with interview and company statement)

Innovationen bei Ganzjahresreifen der letzten Jahre wie die “Centipede Sipes” des Nokian WR G4 Ganzjahresreifens ermöglichen durch die neu optimierte Platzierung und Unterstützung des Profils eine verbesserte Haftung auf Schnee und Eis sowie auf Schneematsch Blöcke. Dieses aggressivere Profilmuster verbessert sowohl die Stabilität als auch den Fahrkomfort. Dieser Reifen bietet auch die neue “Coanda-Technologie”, die … Read More
