As with any genuine sports car, the Macan is equipped with wider tyres at the rear – just like the 911. The visual impact is not the only effect: the larger footprint at the rear improves both stability and traction and also enhances agility for intensified contact with the road.
For the wheels, too, everything revolves around sporty performance – and style. Accordingly, the Macan serves up some impressive numbers: the wheels look exceptionally large, with optional sizes up to 21 inches.
What they all have in common is their aluminium construction, which saves weight and increases agility. That's particularly true of the forged 21-inch wheels.
The Macan is equipped, as standard, with 18-inch Macan wheels, the Macan S and Macan S Diesel with 18-inch Macan S wheels. The Macan Turbo is fitted with 19-inch Macan Turbo wheels as standard.
All tyres have been optimised for driving performance, handling, rolling resistance and weight. The rubber compound, tread pattern and the carcass architecture have been designed for the least rolling resistance possible in order to reduce fuel consumption.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring sends warnings to the on-board computer’s display screen in the event of low tyre pressure or a gradual or sudden loss of pressure. The multifunction display in the instrument cluster gives you a quick and convenient way to check your tyre pressures.
