Nokian E-Line 2 Summer Tyres
Nokian E-Line 2 Summer Tyres
In my early days of blogging. Then I used to write about almost every new tyre that was introduced by the manufactures. Eventually this began to grind me down. Most new tyres were similar to the last one, or claimed to be the tyre that was greener than the rest. As a result, I have been selling tyres for about forty years now. In the long run, tyres are just a consumer product.
This is certainly true to an extent. Tyre companies have had to come out with different solutions in recent years mainly due to the pressure from car manufacturers. In turn car manufacturers have also been under pressure from governments to bring down the emissions produced by their cars. This pressure has effected every part of the car. Including the tyres.
Tyre were beginning to become smaller and fatter. The 50 and 55 series tyres were introduced to fit some of the sportier cars in the market place. Looks were the thing. If a car looked good on fat tyres then that was kool ?
Things had to change for cars to become more eco friendly. Tyres were being made from unusual materials to make them lighter in weight. Continental are developing the white sticky liquid from “dandelions” Strange but dandelions have the same molecular build up as latex rubber. Yokohama tyres are using “orange skin oils” in their tyre compound mix.
Therefore a tyre that is lighter in weight and is built with a taller overall diameter is much greener.
These tyres will go further. using less of the vehicles fuel. Because they are carrying less weight than there predecessors. The European Union brought out a guide line to show which tyres were the best in each department. The “A” is for fuel efficiency the “B” is fore wet cornering and the “C” is in decibels for tyre noise. When the SUV market began to take off then there was a need to improve “Rolling Resistance” This was done by hardening the tyres compound.
Consequently this had the effect of the tyres having poor cornering. Especially in wet weather. Experiments were carried out with the new materials and “silica” would become the answer. Now most tyres contain silica. This gives the tyres a better rolling resistance and also helps the grip in wet weather situations. Companies were coming out with AA rated tyres the first were the Goodyear Efficient Grips, Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue and the Bridgestone Ecopia EP001S tyres.
The latest addition to this group is the Nokian E-Line 2 tyres.
As a result Nokian have added an excellent safety feature to the tyre an “Aramid” reinforcement is fitted to the range of SUV summer tyres .This new reinforcement is fitted to the range of SUV summer tyres. Extremely durable Aramid staple fibres, which are also successfully used in bulletproof vests, stiffen and reinforce the sidewall to make it exceptionally resistant to wear and cuts. This is a major safety feature. Especially with the growing amount of potholes that are appearing all over the place.
These sidewalls are so tough that Nokian Tyres Aramid Guarantee covers accidentally on sidewall damaged tyres and provides you with a new, corresponding product free of charge.
