PR is short for "ply-rating". This label originally described the number of cotton cord layers in the casing. A higher number of cord layers means a better carrying capacity. When stronger materials were introduced for the cord layers, this term was removed from the actual number of cord layers. Now, a tyre with 8 PR could have only four nylon cord layers which equalled the strength of eight cotton cord layers. Today, the stability of street-worthy tyres is expressed through the load and speed index instead of the ply rating.
Stability, durability, and safety for demanding professional use.
The new Nokian cLine van tyre, designed for delivery trucks and vans, offers stability, durability and safety for demanding professional use. Nokian cLine tyre comes with two different tread models: The Van version is intended for lighter loads and pas¬senger transport. The safety of both of these tyres is maximised by a new rubber compound, Clinch rubber compound that offers excellent durability and wet grip.

Tyre label / efficiency classes
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G, wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
