Maximum performance, even in low temperatures.

Impressive power output and an equally impressive design. Just like your Porsche, wheels with winter tires from Porsche Tequipment combine both. No wonder. They are, after all, developed in Weissach by the same designers and engineers who conceived the vehicles. Precisely tailored to each model. The diverse designs not only give more grip in wintry conditions, they also suit your requirements.

Winter tires can be recognized through the markings on the tire sidewall. The abbreviation M+S (slush and snow) can be found in combination with the so-called ‘Alpine’ symbol, a three-pointed mountain pictogram with a snowflake in the middle. Any manufacturer can use the M+S emblem because tires with this designation do not require any wintry test criteria. Make sure that the tires are provided not only with the M+S emblem but also the Alpine symbol.

Winter tires should already be fitted before snow falls because winter conditions for summer tires begin at temperatures below around +7°C. Below this point, the tire compound begins to harden – driving characteristics are worsened and braking distances increased. We therefore recommend that you fit winter tires during the colder months of the year.

... what the ‘N’ designation means?

All tires recognized by Porsche have a special designation: the ‘N’ designation. Tires with the Porsche ‘N’ designation are distinguished from other tires, particularly in terms of their geometry – which provides high driving stability – the rubber compound and their rigorous testing, which involves no fewer than 33 important criteria. And that applies to wheels with both summer and winter tires from Porsche Tequipment.

Driving pleasure in winter – engineered in Weissach.

Driving safety in winter begins on the ground.

The warm-up for winter begins with the tires. Because they transfer the high performance of a Porsche to the road surface. Only tires which are suitable for the season can form a bond with the road – and therefore ensure performance, safety and driving pleasure.

Winter for a summer tire begins long before the snow falls. Even at a temperature of approx. +7°C, its rubber compounds start to harden. The driving characteristics worsen, braking distances increase. With winter tires, the braking distance in wet conditions is reduced by up to 12% and in snow by up to 19%. In addition, the vehicle can be better controlled.

That's why our engineers leave nothing to chance when developing the Porsche Tequipment wheels with winter tires. Even in the toughest conditions, all winter tires must prove their Porsche compatibility. Our experts push the tires to their limits of performance. On snow, on wet roads and on tarmac, all tire products must demonstrate what they are capable of. On the various winter road surfaces, points such as performance, braking, directional stability, traction and braking tests are tested. In the end, only the best tires – officially recommended by Porsche – will be awarded the ‘N’ designation.

Inch-by-inch Porsche quality.

From the first second onwards in the development of our wheels with winter tires, one principle applies: utmost quality. Which is why laps on the Nürburgring form the basis for our tests. The values observed there are used as input parameters for the subsequent testing of our wheels. Not least the endurance test on the ‘biaxial wheel test’ (ZWARP) which simulates the long-term strain associated with extreme driving styles. The result: safe, high-performance wheels. Engineered in Weissach.

An important quality factor. In the toughest conditions, among other qualities, performance, rolling resistance and rolling noise are checked on the test track in Weissach. The route to the ‘N’ designation – for tires recommended by Porsche – is an examination of 33 important criteria. These comprise 12 objective outdoor criteria, such as dry and wet braking performance and service life, in addition to 16 objective testbench criteria. Among other qualities, these assess rolling resistance and high-speed strength. Then there are five subjective outdoor criteria, which include handling and driving comfort. And in the end? Only the best tires are awarded the coveted ‘N’ designation. Quality which you can recognize at a glance.

Design is not a question of season.

Porsche performance can also be expected in design. Because wheels with winter tires from Porsche Tequipment don’t only make us sit up and take notice technologically, but also visually. No matter which model. Because every wheel is perfectly tailored to your Porsche. And fittingly developed for the overall concept of the vehicle by the same designers and engineers who develop the vehicles.

This results in wheels with winter tires which ensure perfect performance, even in wintry conditions. And which offer you all manner of options. Whether, sporty, classic, slender or striking. In 18, 19, 20 or 21-inch. Painted in satin platinum or black (high-gloss). With a striking multi-spoke or sporty dual-arm design. Find all wheels with winter tires available for your Porsche in the Porsche accessories finder.

Whichever option you choose: wheels with winter tires from Porsche Tequipment are the perfect addition to your Porsche in terms of functionality and design.

Superior performance. Even in winter.

Winter comes and goes. Performance stays. After all, your Porsche is a sports car, 365 days a year. And with wheels with winter tires from Porsche Tequipment precisely tailored to your Porsche, you are fully prepared for low temperatures, snow, slush and slippery roads.

While others have to shift down a gear, with Porsche wheels with winter tires, you can drive dynamically, as usual. With maximum power output and complete safety. The special tread and the adapted rubber compound provide even more grip. The special siped tread profiles drain, for example, water from the road particularly quickly from the tires. This ensures excellent handling in wet conditions and when braking. In addition, the sophisticated winter profile provides superior traction on wintry road surfaces. Which means that driving a Porsche is just as fun in winter as it is in summer.

Our recommendation for winter:

What do rubber compounds, siped tread arrangement and tread depth actually have to do with driving pleasure and driving safety in winter? Everything, actually. Because to be able to produce full power output even under extreme conditions, you need the right tires. With the right conditions for the demanded performance. Because it’s worthwhile looking more precisely at the important details. After all, your winter tires are the key players on the ground.

The rubber compound of the tread surface.

The rubber compounds of the winter tires clearly differ from those of the summer tires. Thanks to the high proportion of natural rubber, they are noticeably softer. And they harden less in the cold. This means tires can be adapted optimally to the road surface.

The tread pattern.

The tread is the basis for the safe grip on wintry roads. It drains water and provides good lateral stability. In addition, snow can settle in the wide grooves which causes improved performance through friction.

The siped tread pattern of the tires.

The siped tread has a lot to do in winter. After all, it provides the perfect grip on snow-covered, frozen and wet surfaces. The fine incisions of the siped tread create many gripping edges which snag when driving in snow. In addition, snow can be lodged in the siped tread, providing good frictional resistance, as snow sticks to snow.
