The Nankang AS-1 is a touring all season tire made for passenger vehicles. Nankang offers a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.
The tire guarantees exceptional all weather road gripping ability. The silica-based tire compound and the asymmetric dual zone tread design boost the dry, wet and winter weather traction. The silica compound maintains its excellent flexibility in all temperatures, while the dual zone tread splits the tread surface up to a dry and a wet and winter zone to utilize the tread’s full road gripping capacity. The wide grooves prevent hydroplaning by eliminating water and slush from beneath the tire’s footprint to improve the wet and winter weather driving safety.
The tread pattern promotes an effortless controllability. The outer shoulder’s rigid tread block sequence improves the cornering ability and power. It provides additional biting edges in such conditions which enhances the cornering and maneuvering ability greatly. The tire’s steering responsiveness and driving stability also get increased. The shoulder tread pattern improves the steering responsiveness and precision, which ensures a safer driving experience. The tire’s constant road contact stabilizes its structure during the drive and enhances its performance in all weather.
The AS-1 was manufactured with a silica-enhanced compound, which lowers its overall weight. This allows the tire to decrease its rolling resistance by easing the driving pressure off the tire. The reduced rolling resistance lessens the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, offering an environmentally friendly and fuel efficient driving experience. The lower rolling resistance also manages to extend the tread life. It slows the tread wear rate down, which, along with the even tread wear provided by the optimized siping design of the tread, extend the tire’s usability as well.
