Nexen will introduce UHP tire

June 27, 2006

Nexen Tire Corp. will unveil its N7000 ultra-high performance all-season tire on July 1.

"The tire provides all-weather traction, while minimizing compromizes in dry and wet road handling to complement the performance of sports cars, coupes and sedans that require year-round traction even in light snow," says Nexen President Jack Oh.

The N7000 contains a full cap ply to provide steering stability, Nexen's Optimized Belt Contour System, a special layer of rubber to resist air diffusion, and high-tensile bead wire for lateral stability, according to Oh.
