NANKANG PERFORMANCE SPORT TIRE, NS-2, THE UNIQUE V-SHAPED PATTERN CAN DRAIN MORE EFFICIENTLY IN HIGH SPEED CONDITIONS. SUMMER TIRE SPORT SERIES HANDLINGCOMFORTLOW NOISEDURABILITYDRAINAGE FURL SAVING NS-2 Series:30/35/40/45/50/55 Inch:16~19
Two-in-One PATTERN The Two-in-One pitches are designed to reduce pattern noise and promote comfort when driving. SHOULDER SIPE The tire shoulder edge sipes design promote equal and long distance tread wear. V-PATTERN V sub-grooves pattern in the design, increase drainage on wet road conditions. DRAINAGE The two center groove design can efficiently enhance superior wet handling and drainage ability.
The directional tire drainage is superior than non-directional tires, especially the main grooves that can drain water much better on wet road conditions, The V-SHAPED pattern is designed to also assist the drainage from the tread to tire shoulder, improving how the tire displaces water.
SUMMER TIRE SPORT SERIES HANDLINGCOMFORTLOW NOISEDURABILITYDRAINAGE FURL SAVING NS-20 NS-20 is an elegant design without losing it's wild Performance. It is also a quiet, comfortable multi function tire. NS-20 also adopted new technology such as Dual- Layer Tread, Micro Vent, Comfort Profile designed, and 5 Pitche arrangement for low noise tire pattern designs. The 5 pitch design can effectively reduce the noise generated by the tire tread.
SHOULDER SIPES Sipes on the tire shoulders reduce block rigidity, lower pattern noise and increase comfort. LATERAL SIPES Tiny lateral sipes will reduce tire pattern noise. SUB-STRAIGHT GROOVES The two sub-straight grooves on the tire shoulders enhance The main grooves drainage efficiency. STRAIGHT WIDE GROOVES Four straight grooves enhance drainage efficiency and handling on wet road conditions.
The Initial Dual Layer Tread is shown below. After using a tire for a period of time (wear conditions depending on driver influence), then the soft sub-Layer compound appears. Take 225/40R18 92 W NS-20 as an example, the size groove depth is 8.1mm, when the 1st layer tread finish wearing (About 5,000km), which is half of the depth(4.0mm), then the 2nd tread will appear.
Dual Layer Tread Initial Dual Layer Tread Tire wear after a period of time can still maintain the same performance of a new tire.
Micro Vent (non-trimmed) Conventional Tire Vent Diameter 1.3mm Tire Vent Diameter 0.6mm Green tire rubber melting evenly covered with mold, the air is discharged from mold tiny hole. Rubber into the tiny hole when the air drained, then rubber becomes needle shape on tire surface after curing procedure.

3.AS-1 SUMMER TIRE COMFORT SERIES HANDLINGCOMFORT LOW NOISE DURABILITYDRAINAGE FURL SAVING AS-1 AS-1 is an asymmetric tire, the outside pattern is focus on control and grip performance; the inside pattern is designed with comfort and low noise. The AS-1 is a multi-function tire with performance and comfort abilities in equal measure. Series:35/40/45/50/55/60/65 Inch:13~19
SHOULDER GROOVE Unique straight groove design on the shoulder are to increase rigidity and prevent irregular wear. TWO IN ONE PATTERN In order reduce road noise, AS-1 uses a 2-in-1 pattern and multi-pitch design. STRAIGHT WIDE GROOVES Four straight grooves design enhance drainage efficiency to upgrade safety on wet road conditions.
AS-1 Contact Patch The Contact patch is the portion of a vehicle's tire that is in actual contact with the road surface. It is most commonly used in the discussion of Pneumatic tires where the term is strictly used to describe the portion of the tires tread that touches the road surface. The term Footprint is also used to describe this.
4.RX-615 SUMMER TIRE COMFORT SERIES HANDLINGCOMFORT LOW NOISE DURABILITYDRAINAGE FURL SAVING RX-615 RX-615 is designed as a comfort tire, the tire tread adopts computer simulation for the 5 pitch design pattern arrangement, the multi lateral sipes to reduce tread rigidity, increase comfortability. Series:45/50/55/60/65/70/80 Inch:12~17
SUB GROOVES The Tire shoulder sub-straight grooves are designed to reduce tread rigidity Lateral grooves & Multi-Sipes The lateral grooves are designed to reduce noise generation from the tire. The Multi-Sipes are designed to deduce rigidity and keep driving comfortable. STRAIGHT WIDE GROOVES The Four straight grooves are designed to enhance drainage efficiency and to maximize safety on wet road conditions.
The NANKANG RX-615 is not designed as a competitive tires, but mainly to be a comfortable tire. A comfort tire of course must also address road noise. The RX-615 design features a physical characteristic called "Frequency Transformation, to reduce the noise caused by the tire blocks. This method is used in the 5 different sizes placed In RX-615, and using computer simulation of different sizes combinations to make the tire rolling noise generated varies frequency. The optimized tread design can greatly reduce the amount of road noise from a tire. 5 Pitches on RX-615 A B C D E
NOISE TEST BETWEEN RX-615 AND CONVENTION TIRE(NE-826) The New generation low noise tire, RX-615, uses computerized multi-pitch simulation technology with multi-siped pattern design to reduce tire noise generation. Noise Level (dB) Velocity (Km/hr) RX-615 NE (Km/hr) 80(Km/hr)
