Nankang launches new SUV tyre

Nankang has unveiled the SP-9 to meet the demands of the growing SUV tyre market.

The Nankang SP-9 achieves the perfect combination of performance, comfort, safety and mileage, through an otimised tread design and pitch sequence.

The SP-9 features a new generation rubber compound and pattern design and benefits from extensive research and field tests.

By utilizing uniform thin sipes throughout the tread, tyre rigidity is reduced so as to offer better stability and comfort. To reduce the rolling noise, the pitch sequence of the tread has been simulated by the latest computer technology.

The SP-9 is designed to deliver excellent handling and stability required by mainstream SUV and crossover vehicles, in all sorts of driving applications.

With four central circumferential grooves and intensive lateral grooves, the SP-9 evacuates water efficiently, breaks the surface tension, and reduces the risk of hydroplaning.

According to Nankang Tire, the SP-9 has agile handling and shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads.

The SP-9 comes in 38 sizes with V and H speed ratings, from 40 to 70-series, 215/285 section width in sizes 16 to 21 inches,.
