while driving a
(205/55 R16 W) on
mostly country roads
Worst Wear I've ever experienced , almost didn't make the MOT because of treadwear down at 1,7 mm.
This AFTER 27.000 km !
Learned from the MOT-man that Nokian have failed totally with the rubber mixture and that the "body" of the Tire is to weak and can't take the Centrifugal force, even if You'r driving with 2,6 kg pressure. He's driving with 3,0 kg ! But then it runs like a Tram !
Checked the info with my friend at home who owns the local tyre-dealer and he confirmed that the Nokian Rep. had said the same and that the Nokian Black was even worse 10.000 km's is not an un-common wear-distance for them !
They are in PANIC trying to find a solution (new rubber mixture and construction) but will not compensate the customers in any way !
Hopefully 2018 might have a compl. new Hakka Blue !
