There are several instances where you have to drive your truck through some harsh conditions before you start hauling the items on the highways. This can e.g. be in forestry where you need to get to the landing and pass through some rough terrain in getting there or within some mining or earthmoving sites where you need to pass through and over sharp rocks and stones. I addition to this you will need to be prepared for the different weather conditions that avail.
Most tires are optimized for either being used on the road like haul tires or then off-road where you have different requirements. In the similar way the same goes for the weather, either they are designed for winter weather or then summer weather. To find tires that are able to handle this span is not easy and so far I have only found one tire that can handle the whole span beautifully. This is the Nokian R-Truck tire. It is like made for this.
It is approved for winter conditions and has the 3PMSF symbol on the sidewall, which means that it is approved for winter conditions and is able to handle ice, snow and slush safely. However this tire is made for being used all year around, so it handles just as well on hot tarmac roads as when you haul down summer highways. It is designed as perfect haul tires with low heat build up and low tyre wears combined with excellent off road driving properties.
The pattern is wide open to allow it to handle rough terrain where it is very durable and can handle the rough terrain that you will have in forestry and earthmoving work sites. So you will not get stuck in mud or snow and you will not risk your tires getting punctured by debris at the site. So this is your ideal tire that can manage through the whole range of challenging conditions while still handling perfectly as a haul tire. Heavy truck tires that can handle this range of conditions, temperatures and still working as a solid high performance tire will not be easy to find somewhere else. That is when I found this tire I was very happy that now my heavy trucks have less downtime while driving the timber from the landing.
