Nokian Hakkapeliitta C3 tire makes life easier for heavy duty professionals. These durable studded tires can master harsh winter conditions; in addition to the balanced winter grip that is synonymous with the Hakkapeliitta brand, it offers stable handling for professional drivers. Aramid Sidewall technology offers a new type of durability and protection for demanding driving conditions. Strong, synthetic Aramid fibers reinforce the tire's sidewall and make it more resistant to impacts and cuts that could otherwise easily break it. This rubber compound, refined for hard use, works along a wide temperature range, tolerates hard tire wear, and reduces rolling resistance. The high percentage of natural rubber allows the tire to maintain its safety properties even in very cold weather. Rapeseed oil brings tear strength to the tire and improves grip on snow and ice. Durable square steel studs ensure excellent grip even as the kilometers pass by. The studs have several edges for maximizing the area of contact, in turn improving the grip of the studs on slippery surfaces. The optimized stud placement makes the noise level pleasantly low, which improves driving comfort especially on longer trips. The numbers on the center surface of the tire indicate how much of the main groove depth remains on the tread. The snowflake symbol Winter Safety Indicator (WSI) remains visible to a groove depth of four millimeters. Once the snowflake has worn out, the driver should purchase new winter tires to ensure sufficient safety. The steel belt package tailored for the double body structure is durable. The pocket strips integrated into the edges of both steel belts are a unique design feature. This solution ensures that the steel belts are durable in heavy use and that they can be securely attached to the structure. The new, more flexible steel cord both improves the structural durability and allows the tire to retain its state-of-the-art characteristics for longer than before. At the same time, this solution reduces rolling resistance, in turn enhancing fuel economy. The compound presses flexibly against the foot of the rim, making the bead area more durable when handling massive loads. This innovation also successfully minimizes the cabin noise of the vehicle, since it reduces the vibrations from the tire body, preventing them from passing over onto the rim and further to the inside of the vehicle.
