Primarily differ from other tires due to their special design, the Porsche N-rated tires provide excellent driving stability – and maximum driving pleasure. During development, all tires are tailored to Porsche vehicles with geometry and rubber composition in mind. Be it all-season, summer, winter or high-performance tires.
All the tires available from your Porsche Service Consultant at Porsche Centre Vancouver have been thoroughly tested and approved by Porsche. This is distinguishable by the N-rating which is always specified in the tire's technical data, and abbreviated to N0, N1, N2, N3, N4, N5 and N6. The rating refers to the technical status at the time approval was obtained, and progressively increases. A Porsche-approved tire ensures that your vehicle retains its original driving performance and safety margins, even after being fitted with a new replacement tire. There are many reasons for this. Or 33 to be precise.
Porsche N-rated tires primarily differ from other tires in terms of their geometry, rubber composition and testing method, which includes a total of 33 important criteria. These consist of 12 objective outdoor criteria, such as wet and dry braking performance and service life, for example. There are also 16 objective indoor criteria, such as rolling resistance and performance at high speed, for instance. And five subjective outdoor criteria, such as handling and driving comfort, are also considered. The tangible result: driving pleasure and safety.
