The N’Fera Sport R is Nexen's newest extreme UHP tire. It is available in 13 sizes.

Nexen Tire America Inc. is adding a new extreme ultra-high performance tire to its lineup, as well as an updated all-weather tire for SUVs and light trucks.

The N’Fera Sport R and the Roadian HTX2 both took a spot in the new product showcase at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.

N’Fera Sport R

The N’Fera Sport R is Nexen's newest all-new extreme ultra high-performance tire and replaces the N’Fera SUR4G, the product used by championship Formula DRIFT drivers. Nexen says the N’Fera Sport R offers faster all-around performance and better grip thanks to a larger contact area. That contact area gives the tire 4% more ground contact area than its predecessor.

The N’FeraFera Sport R is made from "a fine-grade, high-carbon black composition," that combined with a higher filler loading help drivers record faster warm up times on the track.

Specifications include:

  • 200 A A U.T.Q.G. treadwear rating
  • Speed Rating W
  • Sizes range from 15- to 19-inches
  • Available in 13 different sizes

It's designed for the next generation of trucks and SUVs on the road today, and provides durability and all-weather driving performance with its 3-Mountain Snowflake certification. Nexen says the tire has reinforced traction to withstand heavy snow, ice and other tough terrains.

Specifications include:

  • Enhanced all-weather performance
  • Speed Rating R, S, T and H
  • Available in two sidewall design options
  • Sizes range from 16- to 22-inches
