‘Winter’ wheel and tyre sets now available at Porsche Centres

Article by Christian A., on October 6, 2011

Taking out the Porsche during the winter months won’t be such an ordeal as the automaker has released a broad variety of ‘winter’ wheel and tire sets designed mainly to boost safety but has better performance and daily practicality in cold weather and challenging driving conditions.

When the temperature goes lower than +7 °C, the tire compound of a typical ‘summer’ tire starts to harden and braking distances are raised. For those who live in parts of the UK that have harsher weather, Porsche is recommending the use of ‘N’-rated ‘winter’ tires below this temperature.

The tires that have the Porsche ‘N’-rating are exclusively developed for Porsche vehicles and are able to meet the high standards for driving stability, comfort and fuel consumption.

In addition, they offer the best compatibility with the functions of Porsche chassis control systems, without any risk of damaging parts or wheel clearance problems.

They also comply with Porsche requirements for durability and stability at high speed. The ‘N’-rating (N0, N1 etc) is displayed on the tire sidewall. The look of the vehicle becomes even sportier with the addition of the Porsche winter wheel and tire sets.

Opting for a complete wheel and tire set cuts the risk of wheel damage during tire replacement. It also prevents having to separately balance each wheel again. As soon as the Porsche Centre has changed the wheels, it could store the summer tires until they’re ready to be put back in the spring.
