Nortec off-road tires are created to conquer roads. The category of these tires differs from ordinary rubber tires intended for installation on light motor vehicles. The items have a solid structure and the high degree of wear resistance, their construction is designed to carry additional loads thanks to the presence of a reinforced carcass. Nowadays the proposals of domestic manufacturers can easily compete with foreign products, they do not hold out for their quality, but they help to save on purchasing. The uniqueness of the product proposal consists in the benefit obtained by the customer – quality products at favorable prices.
Nortec tire manufacturer is not an exception. Nortec range of products for off-road vehicles is represented by several models; each of them is good in its own way at operation under certain specific conditions of car driving.
The category of Nortec off-road tires clearly distinguishes itself among all the tires produced; all models put into production have a definite set of characteristics which are fundamentally important for the owners of off-road cars.
The represented range of products may be conventionally divided into three groups:
The rubber tires for off-road vehicles intended for out-of-town trips and movement through the city on the even roadway coating. The models designed for highway movement have a large contact patch and ensure comfort when mowing on the asphalt road as distinct from “knobbly” rubber. The tire tread blocks located on the protector of the given items are removed from each other at an insignificant distance, thanks to which the tire manoeuvring capability is increased and the noise appearing in the process of movement is absorbed.
The models included into the second group are recommended for installation when driving in an urban setting; they can be also used for movement in the heavy going country, however, they are inferior to the true road conquerors under the off-road conditions in many respects. This rubber is stiffer in comparison with the representatives of the first group and has a bigger pattern.
The third group is intended for driving through the areas with no roads and it is impossible to confuse these rubber tires with any other ones. The rubber has a high degree of stiffness, it demonstrates excellent performance when going through tracking ruts, surmounts any hurdles which ordinary tires cannot cope with. The tread pattern of these off-road tires impresses with its relief. The majority of the produced models of Nortec off-road tires has powerful geometrical blocks on the treads, helping to overcome swampland, muds, loam and rocky road:
some blocks can link and push away finely broken stones and clods of earth while improving the tire “pressure” when going through obstacles;
other blocks link and mill clods of earth, adapt to any uneven roads.
These tires with the “man’s” character are developed for going through the most complicated obstacles, being known today. They have a special rough shoulder, which allows to absorb vibrations of uneven roads and to increase car stability in case of road humps. The blocks extended to the shoulder area give additional traction using the contact with the surface, when the tire tread cannot touch the road completely. The off-road tires with an “aggressive” tread pattern are maximum manoeuvrable under the off-road conditions and ensure free car driving under extreme conditions in the course of their operation. It shall be noted that this rubber is good at movement on impassable roads, but when moving on the asphalt, the presence of well-developed ground grips reduces the level of comfort, the tire makes noise and additional microvibrations can be felt. Besides, the noncompliance of operating conditions of the off-road tires results in reduction of their service life.
The production of Nortec off-road tires is based on the consumer demands laid down by the owners of off-road vehicles. Therefore, the line of Nortec off-road tires includes the products which can “compete” with models of famous brands such as BF Goodrich, Bridgestone, Simex, GoodYear etc.
