The AR-1 is a DOT approved competition tyre looking to be a faster, more refined cousin to the already high performing Nankang NS2R track and drift tyre. The development of the AR-1 included a 15% increase in sidewall strength (compared to NS2R) to further enhance stability, and features Nankang’s improved N17 compound (80 Treadwear, tread depth of 5.5mm) to offer consistent performance and shorter warm up times.
While the AR-1 boasts impressive performance on the track it is also DOT approved. Set to position itself in amongst the greats of the track tyre market, the AR-1 is well suited to the track enthusiast who is hunting lap times.
