Four-wheel drive. Mega horsepower. All the bells and whistles, with storage space to boot.
You bought an adventure machine, and you're ready to roll.
But are you really?
The key to getting the most out of your journeys isn't just your vehicle -- it's also your tires. After all, they're the only part of your adventure machine that touches the road. Here are three things your vehicle can only do if you've got the right tires.
Drive in Any Weather
You may have been told that all-season tires are built keep you safe in all four seasons. Unless you live in Death Valley or Miami, that's not entirely true. When temperatures drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius), all-season tire compounds harden and become less responsive to the road. Their tread patterns also aren't well-suited for carving through snow and slush.
If you live in an area with unpredictable winter weather, an all-weather tire is a great adventure companion. Like an all-season tire, you can drive it year-round. But like a winter tire, it's approved for use in snow and slush.
If you visit winter or winter visits you, consider an all-weather tire so you can thrive while others slide.
Navigate Tough Terrain
Forget four-wheel drive: If you don't also have the right tires, you're still at risk in rugged driving situations. After all, it's called four-wheel "drive," not four-wheel "stop." For the right traction on tough surfaces, you need all-terrain tires forged to tackle the roughest roads.
What makes a good all-terrain tire? Check below the surface. Nokian Tyres infuses the sidewalls and tread of our all-terrain tires with puncture-resistant Aramid fibers. Aramid is the same material used in police vests, if that gives you an idea of its durability. It's lightweight, so it's perfectly suited to handle the toughest tests you could throw at it, from rutted paths to pothole-pockmarked roads.
Do More With Your Money
Great journeys can also be costly ones. Fortunately, the right tires can help put more cash in your wallet, so you can spend more on fun and less on fuel.
The key: Asking for tires with low rolling resistance. That's defined as the energy required to propel a tire along the road. The higher the rolling resistance, the less energy-efficient your vehicle will be. That could mean more trips to the pump and less cash left to make the most of your adventure.
More than 90 percent of Nokian Tyres products rank in the lowest categories of rolling resistance. When gas prices are high, buying the right tires can help you save on annoying fuel costs and get more out of each fill-up. As a bonus, they also produce lower emissions, so you're keeping that journey as beautiful as possible.
Stock your adventure machine with tires that can make more adventure possible. When the right tires are touching the ground, the sky becomes the limit.
