The Nankang AR-1 is available in 13" to 20" with more sizes constantly being added.

The AR-1 is a faster, more refined track tyre, aimed at the track enthusiast who are hunting lap times. 

With only one compound option and with all tyres being produced with 5.5mm tread depth, the AR-1 is positioning itself in amongst the greats of the track tyre market.

Used as a control tyre by the M3 Cup, 330 challenge and Classic VW Cup as well as a podium winning tyre in open tyre series such as CSCC New Millennium and 750MC Club Enduro.

As the Nankang range is ever evolving, the 2019 production 100TW tyres in 17" and above now contain a kevlar lining, this further increases stability and consistency. Designed to combat high intensity circuits such as Nurburgring and Spa.
