Nankang release NEW tyre patterns
The 4WD/SUV AT-5 tyre has a four zigzag groove design adopted for mud and offroad applications.
An interlocking centre block enhances stability on rugged roads and features a stone ejector design to easily remove stones.
The tread blocks are stabilised by tie-bars that also reduce irregular tyre wear.
A new profile and sidewall design upgrades the rigidity of the AS-2+ passenger sports tyre.
Serrated walls on the circumferential grooves allow water to effectively disperse and noise is reduced by the friction between airflow and groove wall.
A chamfering design optimises the angle of the shoulder tread lateral grooves to reduce tyre rolling sound and improves the block stability.
The light-weight profile design of the NA-1 passenger tyre features a narrow tread width to reduce rolling resistance.
Road noise is reduced by the lateral grooves on the shoulder tread and the inside circumferential grooves improve water drainage performance on wet roads.
Better corner handling and manoeuvrability are achieved by the large pattern blocks on the tyres shoulders.
