“So the secret sauce for any tire company and particularly for us is in the compound…it’s in what’s in that rubber.  So Nokian tires was the first company to eliminate harmful oils from those tire ingredients which means we’re one of the most sustainable tire companies in the industry as ranked by independent panels.”
