We offer lots of tyres for trucks from many different manufacturers. You will find tyres and equipment from top of the line manufacturers to a wide range of high quality truck tyresfrom the budget segment.
Make the right choice along the way
Depending on where, how much, how fast and above all in what manner you drive your truck, the need for tyre features will vary. We help you choose the right tyre for you and your driving style. The same goes for equipment including snow chains, anti-skid devices and heavy-treaded tyres. Please contact us if you need help choosing the truck tyre that is right for you. You save money with the right tyres when you drive more fuel efficiently. And that way you do not wear your new tyres unnecessarily. To increase the life of your tyres clean them regularly, check air pressure and store them according to recommendations. Air pressure should be checked when the tyre is cold to get the correct reading. Since air pressure reduces rolling resistance and wear, it is important that it is checked regularly. The pressure in truck tyres is higher than in passenger cars which means the tyres should be of high quality so they will not explode.
Different weather conditions
Tyres used in heavy commercial traffic must withstand enormous stress. These vehicles can weigh several tons and have to cover thousands of miles per year, so it is important that the tyres can handle different temperatures and road conditions. The optimum tyre provides good grip but as little rolling resistance as possible. As a truck driver, it's important to have good tyres because transport distances can be long with different weather conditions during the same day. In addition, the roads used vary enormously, ranging from motorways to small dirt roads. For those who drive shipments abroad, it is important to remember that laws and regulations regarding the tyres can vary. For example, studded tyres are not allowed in several European countries. With this in mind, very durable, high performance tyres are required. The tyres should also be as safe as possible, and also have a low rolling resistance. A low rolling resistance is extremely important because it provides the lowest operating costs and lowest environmental impact in terms of carbon emissions. Lower operating costs are the result of reduced fuel consumption. With the right tyres for your truck, you can reduce fuel costs by 30%. As a professional driver it is important to be able to rely on your tyres and we at Nordentyres are proud to offer the best tyres on the market.
About truck tyres
Truck tyres like car tyres are available in lots of different sizes and it is not always easy to know exactly which dimension is right for your truck. The easiest way is to step out of your truck and read the side of the tyre where all dimensions are marked. All tyres on heavy vehicles must have a tread depth of at least 5 mm during the winter. Your tyres do not have to be new, but it is important that the tyre tread depth and stud protrusion is good. Do not forget that it is best if tyres are stored in a cool, dry and dark place. With the right tyres in good condition, you will be safer on the roads, both for your own safety and that of and others too. In order to meet all the demands of the professional drivers of heavy vehicles, there are many tyre manufacturers that collaborate with several trucking companies. The tyres undergo demanding, tough testing under different conditions before they reach the market.
In November 2012, the European Union introduced a Directive for tyre manufacturers to label tyres for trucks so that consumers could more easily choose the right tyres. Three things that must be marked according to the Directive: wet grip, fuel efficiency and external rolling noise. Many manufacturers also choose to mark more properties such as stability and safety features. The location of the marking on the tyre can vary, but usually it is a label affixed to the tyre. Wet grip is referred to in classes A-G and indicates how long the braking distance is on wet surfaces. It is important to note that the stopping distance given is for wet surfaces and not frozen ones. The Directive does not require indicating braking distance on winter surface conditions. When selecting your tyres it is therefore recommended to use additional sources of information. Tyre noise is marked in decibels or a graph with three sound waves. This marking is intended to reduce traffic noise; it is not an indication of the sound level inside the truck. Fuel efficiency indicates the degree of rolling resistance. Low rolling resistance reduces carbon emissions and fuel consumption. This in turn reduces costs and environmental impact. The classification runs from A to G, A being the best.
