STUTTGART, Germany — Porsche A.G. has selected Nexen Tire Corp.'s N'Fera RU1 as an OE fitment on the 2018 Macan compact SUV, the South Korean tire maker reported recently.
The selected tire — which Nexen describes as an ultra-high-performance product optimized for sports driving — is being supplied to Porsche in sizes 235/55R19 101Y (front) and 255/50R19 103Y (rear).
Nexen did not say which Macan model it's supplying. Porsche offers five Macan models: the base model, an “S”, “GTS”, “Turbo” and “Turbo/Performance Package.”
The Macan is a four-door hatchback that seats four. Porsche offers three engine options: a 252-hp turbocharged four-cylinder; a 340-hp 3-liter twin-turbo V6; and a 440-hp 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine.
Porsche also specs the N'Fera RU1 on its Cayenne SUV.
