NANKANG AR-1 SET TO BE A MOTORSPORT FAVOURITE
The AR-1 is looking to be a faster, more refined cousin to the already high performing Nankang NS2R track and drift tyre. The development of the AR-1 included a 15% increase in sidewall strength* to further enhance stability, and features Nankang’s improved N17 compound (80 Treadwear, tread depth of 5.5mm) to offer consistent performance and shorter warm up times.
While the AR-1 boasts impressive performance on the track it is also DOT approved and road legal. Set to position itself in amongst the greats of the track tyre market, the AR-1 is well suited to the track enthusiast who is hunting lap times.
The AR-1 has already been well received in the Japanese and European markets and is the control tyre for the U.K’s 2017 BMW M3 Cup series. During initial testing drivers have seen lap times cut by over 1.5 seconds around the U.K’s Donington track vs. the already high performing Nankang NS2R.
Now available in a range of sizes from 13” to 18” - with more sizes scheduled for development. *compared to NS2R
