Tyres form the only connection between your Porsche and the road. They transfer the high power to the road below. And therefore make a significant contribution to your safety – not least when braking.
That's why Porsche is one of the few car makers to undertake extensive tyre development and testing. And publish regular manufacturer approvals for summer and winter tyres for all new vehicles. But over time, the designs change, as do the treads and rubber compounds. Tyre types are adjusted and new tyres launched.
For drivers of classic Porsche vehicles, Porsche also regularly publishes tyre approvals for vintage cars and modern classics, for reference purposes. To this end, a total of over 150 different sets of tyres are tested in various disciplines on the respective original vehicles.
