The rugged and versatile Nokian Tyres Outpost APT helps drivers remove their limits by providing stable and durable driving in all conditions. Forged with features like puncture-resistant Aramid Strong sidewalls and a versatile tread pattern, the Outpost APT is crafted to handle daily driving and difficult demands alike. An adaptable year-round tread design is equipped to handle any conditions and every surface, including snow and slush. Large grooves inside the tread pattern help prevent hydroplaning, while the tire’s rugged construction provides durability for rough roads.

Extend Your Toughness

Strong enough to protect drivers on the road and off the beaten path, the tire is durable and puncture-resistant, thanks to its Aramid sidewalls. The sidewall compound contains extremely strong Aramid fibers, a material utilized by the aerospace and defense industries. Gravel guards carve confidently and comfortably through road hazards, rocks and ruts. The tire’s sturdy structure provides high load capacity. The Outpost APT is strong on substance and style: its dual sidewall design – different patterns on each sidewall – lets drivers outfit their vehicles with their own personal look to make a statement of intent for the journeys ahead.

Extend Your Travel

The Nokian Tyres Outpost APT helps drivers extend their journeys thanks to a high-tech tread compound and protective elements. An innovative silica compound provides advanced performance without sacrificing high mileage. The Outpost APT features a low-rolling-resistance rubber compound crafted to go hard on rough terrain but easy on the environment, maximizing fuel efficiency and minimizing emissions. Groove lifts and stability supports maintain the sturdiness of those journeys.

We recommend this tire for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid vehicles

High-quality tires bring out the best in powerful electric vehicles. Battery packs inside EV and hybrid vehicles make them heavier and slower to stop than cars with combustion engines. Nokian Tyres products are designed to provide extra grip to compensate for the added weight, providing drivers peace of mind on the road. The right tire should also increase an EV or hybrid vehicle's driving range. Nokian Tyres helps you drive further. We’ve made strides to minimize our tires’ rolling resistance, decreasing the amount of energy needed for each journey. Our products will take your EV or hybrid further with a single charge while minimizing its environmental footprint.

Customized look and feel

The Outpost APT is strong on substance and style: its dual sidewall design – different patterns on each sidewall – lets drivers outfit their vehicles with their own personal look to make a statement of intent for the journeys ahead.

For your safety and comfort

The tread surface is equipped with Nokian Tyres' patented Driving Safety Indicator (DSI). The numbers indicating the groove depth, and the water drop symbol indicating the risk of hydroplaning are immediately visible to a driver inspecting the tires installed on a vehicle. The water drop symbol disappears when less than four millimeters of tread are remaining, indicating an increased risk for aquaplaning.

Extend Your ADVENTURE with Pothole Protection

The Outpost APT is forged to withstand the toughest driving conditions and is naturally included in our Pothole Protection program. If a tire suffers damage beyond repair due to a road hazard, it will be replaced at no cost. The Outpost APT gets its durability from our unique Aramid Technology – puncture-resistant Aramid fibers, the same material used in bulletproof vests, embedded in the tires’ sidewalls.
