Nexen Tire to supply OE tyres for Porsche Cayenne

Nexen is to supply the N’FERA RU1 as original equipment for the Porsche Cayenne

Nexen Tire has announced it will supply the Porsche Cayenne with its N’FERA RU1 255/55R18 109Y XL as original equipment (OE) tyres. This is the first time that Nexen is supplying original equipment tyres to any Porsche model.

The N’FERA RU1 has been given a grade A in the EU Labeling for its wet grip performance and also obtained Noise Level 1, the lowest noise level, in the EU Labeling.

The company says a 3D-Nano Grip Technology maximises braking capability at high speeds, Fast Reversible Technology optimises steering response and durability and aramid hybrid cap ply cord and special bead filler compound enhances handling stability.

“We are thrilled to supply original equipment tires for Porsche for the first time,” said Travis Kang, CEO of Nexen Tire. “As Porsche is a representative luxury carmaker with prestigious design and performance, this approval for the Porsche Cayenne proves the superior quality and advanced-technology of our products.”
