Nokian Tyres is now one step closer to getting things rolling. Nokian Tyres says it has produced the first test tire at its new factory in Dayton, Tennessee, which is the company's first production plant in North America. Nokian says the first tire, a Nokian eNTYRE 2. 0 in size 205/55R16, marks the beginning of trial production. The company says it remains on schedule to start building tires for commercial sale in the early part of next year.
