The Nankang NS-II tire is a true performance tire in a large range of sizes thanks to stiff responsive sidewalls and extra grip rubber for good wet traction, and dry road handling. It also has a M+S rating for safety in all-seasons including light snow.
Improved highway performance and water evacuation are due to the directional tread design and the dual circumferential grooves in the center of the tread. This offers better cornering and increased lateral traction. Increased resistance to hydroplaning is accomplished with the computer simulated V-shaped drainage sub-grooves and the special extra grip rubber compound.
