Original equipment for its latest Roadster Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70, which will be released in an edition of 70 copies, a Dutch company Donkervoort Automobielen FB chose “more solid and durable” summer tyres Nankang AR-1.
These polyline created the most modern technologies and incorporates best practices global manufacturers that create tires for motorsports. Unique design and reinforced structure of the tyre Nankang AR-1 allowed to increase controllability at high speeds and when cornering, which is especially important for the new Roadster, the main feature of which is the lateral acceleration of 2g. This level of maximum lateral overload is rare even among road supercars, but regular tires Nankang AR-1 can easily cope with such loads.
The index of wear resistance of tyres Nankang AR-1 is set to 80, which makes it unique to the sports models of tires. Wide tread grooves effectively withdraw water from the contact patch with the road, preventing hydroplaning and contribute to reduced noise while driving. In addition, the original patented rubber compound quickly “warms up” the tire to optimum temperature, allowing the Roadster to recruit “hundreds” of 2.7 seconds to accelerate to 200 km/h in 7.7 seconds.
To complete the new Roadster Donkervoort D8 GTO-JD70 are two tyre sizes: 235/45R17 on the front axle and 245/40R18 on the rear.
