Nexen Tire America, Inc., a worldwide leader in high-performance, passenger, SUV/light truck and winter tire technology, announced that it will supply the N’FERA Sport in sizes 265/45 R19 105Y XL and 295/40 R19 108Y XL as original equipment (OE) tires for the new version of the Porsche second-generation Panamera.
Nexen Tire’s N’FERA Sport is a European premium sports tire that provides excellent drainage performance through 3+1 wide grooves and features asymmetric patterns suitable for high-speed driving. It also demonstrates excellent performance in wet and dry conditions.
Furthermore, it also applies 3D grooves to the side to greatly improve the stability and handling performance of high-speed driving through optimization of pattern design, and also uses new compounds that maximize grip and braking force.
