Why Nankang?

The AR-1 seeks to be a faster and more refined track tire, aimed at the track enthusiast looking for lap times. Utilizing the latest tire technology, the new AR-1 boasts massive performance for the track while remaining road legal.

A semi-slick that doesn’t falter, giving magnificent performance from the first to the last lap as all the tests we have carried out on different circuits in Europe before committing to this brand have shown.

Available in a growing size range from 12″ to 21″, so whatever your size within these rim sizes, contact us for a price and you will see that it is not only in its great quality and performance that the Nankang AR-1 improves on the other semi-slick tires currently on the market.

With only one choice of compound and with all tires produced with a 5.5mm tread depth, the AR-1 is establishing itself among the big names in the track tire market.

Used as a control tire by the M3 Cup, 330 Challenge and Classic VW Cup, as well as a winning tire in series with open tire options such as the CSCC New Millennium and 750MC Club Enduro.

As the Nankang range is constantly evolving, the 2019 production 100TW tires in 17″ and larger now contain a Kevlar liner, further increasing stability and consistency. Designed to fight on high intensity circuits like the Nürburgring and Spa.

The AR-1 has achieved EU tire labeling, giving it MSA List 1B approval.

When installed, the yellow dot is the lightest part of the tire, so it should line up with the valve stem on aluminum and steel wheels to ensure proper balance.
