    8,661 views 5 years ago
    In 2014 the world's northernmost tire manufacturer Nokian Tyres is celebrating the 80th anniversary of the winter tire.

    Nokian Tyres developed and manufactured the world's first winter tire to match the Northern winter frost in 1934. Kelirengas ("Weather Tire"), the first winter tire, was designed for trucks.

    Two years later, the engineers at the tire factory came up with a new solution for drivers of early passenger cars: the Snow-Hakkapeliitta, a true innovation that increased safety on slippery winter roads.

    Nowadays, the Nokian Hakkapeliitta is one of the best-known winter tire brands wherever true winter is experienced.
