The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Nokian WR C3 is a delivery van tyre that can handle the most difficult, extreme winter conditions. It is a safe and durable tyre that is specifically adapted to conditions in Central and Eastern Europe. Nokian is a well-respected manufacturer of van tyres, and its often a brand of choice.
Nokian WR C3 maintains traction in deep snow and slush. On these tyres, you can safely ride on snow-covered roads and get onto the most inaccessible of places. A very aggressive directional tread pattern, zigzag grooves with slots and a dense network of sipes make this tyre "bite" into slippery surfaces. The result is traction at the highest level.
For the manufacture of the Nokian WR C3 a rubber compound was used, which maintains the performance over a wide temperature range. It harnesses two main benefits - short braking distances and wear resistance. The special rubber "Clinch" was also used in the footer of the tyre. This enables its flexibility of pressure on the wheel at higher loads, resulting in a resistance to mechanical failure and noise-reduction.
Inside the Nokian WR C3 is a special double steel belt. Such a structure is able to withstand very high loads without jeopardizing its efficiency and safety. This also reduces rolling resistance (less fuel) and prevents rapid and uneven wear. In addition, information about the proper level of air pressure and a tread wear indicator, is placed on the tyre to help the driver keep up-to-date on its status.
The manufacturer of this tyre is the Finnish company Nokian. It is a manufacturer of premium tyres. This means that the tyres are characterized by the best in modern technology and the highest quality. Nokian is famous for the launch of the first winter tyre. Nokian products are tested in very harsh conditions of the Arctic Circle. This ensures their reliability in the harshest of environments.
