Porsche Picks Nexen for OE Tire Fitment

Dec. 11, 2017

The N'Fera RU1 tire has earned Nexen Tire Corp. another Porsche original equipment fitment. The tire, in sizes 235/55R19 and 255/50R19, is available on the Porsche Macan, a luxury compact SUV. It's the same tire Porsche selected as OE for the 2017 Porsche Cayenne.

“We are thrilled to be supplying original equipment tires for Porsche, which boasts world-class design and quality,” says Nexen CEO Travis Kang. “We will continually strive to improve Nexen Tire’s product quality and technology as well as to expand our OE supply to more global carmakers.”

The N’Fera RU1 offers cornering stability and sports handling for high-speed driving, and is equipped with 3D-Nano grip technology, which Nexen says maximizes braking capabilities at high speeds.

The N’Fera RU1 has won nine design awards in Europe, the U.S. and Asia, including the 2017 Red Dot Design Award and Japan’s Good Design Award, further establishing Nexen’s design capabilities.

Porsche is among the more than 20 global carmakers to choose Nexen for an OE tire fitment.
