Notable Features

Nokian Wetproof SUV is an asymmetric summer tire, facilitating “navigating” dry and wet roads of the Central Europe. Nokian Wetproof SUV is meant to be installed on small to midsize SUVs. A new model of the summer season 2020. The release of the Nokian Wetproof SUV model was quite an expectable event because the passenger-car version, released a year earlier, already demonstrated good results in independent comparative tests, giving the Finnish tire maker a reason to be proud not only of its winter tires. Just as the passenger-car Nokian Wetproof, the SUV tire model utilizes the patented Dual Zone Safety concept that was developed specially for various summer conditions. The tread pattern is divided into two functional zones. The zone of stability covers the outer part of the asymmetric tread, making maneuvering easy and confident, and ensuring good stability and great handling response. Dual Zone Safety concept At the same time, the wet pavement safety zone covers the inner part of the Wetproof SUV tread. It improves the tire’s grip on wet pavement, and increases hydroplaning resistance. The Responsive Lock technology was developed to support the Wet Proof SUV longitudinal ribs, allowing the water to quickly leave the surface of the tire. The grooves on the ribs are equipped with blocking elements that, bearing against one another, react when the car is set in motion. This new innovative design increases the driving stability without compromising the safety on wet pavement. The new-generation rubber compound Aqua Hybrid SUV also ensures extra safety in the rainy weather. The polymers and silica that it contains strengthen the tire’s grip on wet pavement and increase its fuel efficiency. And it comes as no surprise that the “wet” traction of Nokian Wetproof SUV refers to Class A. The Aramid Sidewalls technology increase the tire’s resistance to tear and puncture. The effect of Aramid fibers is further strengthened by the sturdy heavy-duty inner construction. Lodged in the main drainage grooves, the “stone ejectors” prevent the tread from disruption.

The Nokian Wetproof SUV was released simultaneously with the Nokian Powerproof SUV, designed for larger and more powerful SUVs.
