Wheels & Tyres

All part of the performance

It’s not only the engine that creates the dynamic sports car performance of your Porsche. The tyres play an essential role too. After all, they are the only part of your Porsche in direct contact with the road. So every revolution of the engine, every movement of the steering wheel, and every touch of the brake pedal can only have an effect thanks to the right tyres.

Of course the right tyres vary according to the Porsche model, and the type of wheel. The wrong, non-approved choice could negatively affect performance, handling, and safety. That’s why your personal Service Advisor will provide you with the information you need on the latest Porsche-approved N-rated tyres, and why you should never fit any others to your Porsche.

Summer Tyres

Did you know that asphalt can reach temperatures of up to 60°C in the summer? Or that your Porsche is subjected to lateral loads of up to 1.3 g when cornering? Porsche-recommended summer tyres with N-marking use a special rubber compound which remains stable even at high temperatures. With a tread pattern optimised for summer road surfaces, they offer better grip, greater cornering stability and shorter braking distances. Optimum rolling resistance also helps to ensure their fuel efficiency.

Winter Tyres

Over 60% of drivers find driving on snow to be highly challenging. Porsche-recommended winter tyres – identifiable by their N-marking – give you a sure footing and greater confidence in winter driving conditions. The secret lies in their material composition. Manufactured from a rubber which does not harden in the cold, they maintain more grip even at low temperatures. They also feature tread patterns specially designed to deflect water, provide good lateral support, and to pick up snow for added grip.

Featuring a shallower tread depth, specialised tread pattern and substructure, these tyres are designed for use on racing circuits: for driver safety training, performance driving training and motorsport. Providing better dry weather grip than normal street tyres, they also offer optimised wear characteristics.

If you prefer not to change your tyres with the seasons, Porsche-approved all-season tyres offer the perfect compromise between the grip, handling and stability of the best-performing winter and summer tyres.

‘N’ for safety and pleasure

Porsche N-marked tyres
Porsche N-marked tyres

All tyres from your Porsche Centre are part of the Porsche custom tyre range. This range has been created by Porsche over many years, in close collaboration with leading tyre manufacturers. Porsche works with the tyre manufacturers to jointly develop the ideal tyre type for each model, to meet its special performance requirements.The fact that the tyres have been thoroughly tested and approved by Porsche is indicated by their N-marking (the letter stands for “Nürburgring” where the tyres are tested).

Previously, tyre marking only indicated the tyres’ technical status, by the figure which followed the N (0, 1, 2, 3 or 4). The details were then explained in each tyre’s technical data. Now additional information has been added to the marking.

Following the N, a second letter indicates the model line, and the figure which now follows the letters represents the generation: 0 for 1st, 1 for 2nd and so on.

For example, the Porsche 992 tyre will be marked NA0, indicating it is:
N – approved by Porsche
A – Developed for the Porsche 992
0 – First generation

Porsche N-marked tyres differ from others primarily in terms of geometry, rubber composition and testing methods. Testing covers three main areas:
1. Subjective outdoor criteria, such as handling and driving comfort
2. Objective outdoor criteria, such as braking performance and service life
3. Indoor criteria, such as rolling resistance and high-speed performance

During development, tyre geometry and rubber composition in particular are tailored to Porsche vehicles. As a result, whether all-season, summer, winter or high-performance, Porsche N-marked tyres provide excellent driving stability and maximum driving pleasure. They also ensure your vehicle retains its original driving performance and safety margins, even after being fitted with a new tyre.

Porsche and Michelin Tyres

Porsche and Michelin have worked closely together for almost half a century. Since 2002, Michelin has also been Porsche’s global tyre co-operation partner. This means we collab- orate long before any particular vehicle’s market launch, to design, develop and manufac- ture tyres specifically tailored to match the demands of the new model, and to enhance its safety, agility, control and performance.
