Porsche carries out intensive tire development and testing and regularly issues lists of manufacturer-approved summer and winter tires for all new vehicles. However, tire design as well as tread patterns and rubber compounds change over time; tire types are discontinued and new tires come onto the market.
Tires are the sole connection between your Porsche and the road. They transfer the high power of the Porsche car to the road surface. And they make an important contribution to your safety – not least when braking.
In order to recommend tires to drivers of Porsche Classic cars, Porsche also publishes lists of approved tires for vintage cars and recent classics at regular intervals. For this purpose, more than 150 different sets of tires are tested in a wide variety of disciplines, on the relevant original vehicles.
Below you will find an overview of these approved tires in PDF format.
