Nexen Tire announced that it has begun supplying original equipment (OE) tires for the sports car manufacturer Porsche for the second time. The award-winning UHP tire, N’FERA RU1, is being supplied for Porsche’s compact luxury SUV, Macan, in sizes 235/55R19 101Y and 255/50R19 103Y.

As a UHP tire optimized for sports driving, N’FEAR RU1 has already been supplied to Porsche for its luxury SUV Cayenne.

N’FERA RU1 has won nine design awards in Europe, America and Asia, including the 2017 Red Dot Design Awards and Japan’s Good Design Award, confirming Nexen Tire’s excellence in design. The supply of OE tires further demonstrates Nexen Tire’s high quality and standards in providing optimized tires for extremely high-functioning vehicles.
