Porsche approves Nexen N’Fera RU1 tyres for Macan
A second Porsche original equipment deal for Nexen Tire: Following last year’s approval of the Nexen N’Fera RU1 for factory fitment on the Cayenne, the tyre has now been given the green light for Porsche’s compact luxury SUV, the Macan. The N’Fera RU1 will be supplied for the Macan in sizes 235/55R19 101Y and 255/50R19 103Y.
“We are thrilled to be supplying original equipment tyres for the sports car manufacturer Porsche which boasts truly world-class design and quality,” said Travis Kang, chief executive officer of Nexen Tire. “We will continually strive to improve Nexen Tire’s product quality and technology as well as to expand our OE supplies to more global car makers. With our new Czech manufacturing plant soon to be operational, we will be better able to provide OE tyres that cater to the needs of European car makers.”
Nexen Tire produces 42 million passenger car, SUV and light truck tyres a year, and supplies original equipment tyres to more than 20 global car makers in North and South America, Asia and Europe.
