Porsche is developing new tires
Everyone knows what the world “no” means but now we would like to introduce you its new meaning. The Porsche brand is working under the development of new tires, which are intended for some models such as Carrera GT and the 918 Spyder. “NO” is the name of tires, developed by Porsche jointly with Michelin.
Owing to the innovative tread compound, the tires “NO” have high stability, better side traction and durability even at the maximum speed of a car. These tires are be use longer by 20 percent at tracks and by 10 percent on the road. Now we will see the “NO” on the side of tires that means there are Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The long tires’ life will obviously prolongs your life too.
There is not something “new”. The tires “NO” have the similar design with different rubber specification on the both sides of a tire as the racing tires of Michelin. The dual-compound will provide better traction in turns to keep better contact between tires and the road. When new tires come on sale, the Carrera GT will be put on 265/35 ZR 19 98Y “N0” and 335/30 ZR 20 108Y “N0”.
According to the official report of the auto manufacturer, the development took about 10 years since 2003, when GT models were produced and came on streets. About 1,300 vehicles were launched from 2003 to 2006 and if they were equipped with “NO” tires, who knows, may be now there would be more these cars.
