All-season traction and handling to go with a more quiet and comfortable ride.
Providing all-season traction and handling to go with a more quiet and comfortable ride is what Nankang has built the TourSport NS N605 to do. Designed for drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans, the N605 is engineered for year round performance and a longer treadlife. The all-season tread compound sports an asymmetrical tread pattern and continuous center rib for enhanced dry surface handling and added cornering maneuverability.
Four wider circumferential grooves and multi-angled sipes around the tread increase traction and handling on wet pavement, as well as reduce the risk of hydroplaning. These angled sipes also provide a little extra grip on snow or slush covered roads, although this is not a strong suit for this model. Road noise is reduced through the variable pitch tread sequence that Nankang uses on this model. The computer optimized tread pattern creates a more quiet riding tyre that makes driving more enjoyable.
A wider tread contact patch has been used to not only enhance handling and braking, but to also prevent uneven and irregular tyre wear. Reviews from other drivers have mentioned getting a long tread life out of this model.
