Break in procedure for Nankang tires prior to hard track sessions (racing or otherwise)…
The Nankang SL-1, AR-1, CR-S, and NS-2R will greatly benefit from an initial “break-in” heat cycle, (commonly called “scrubbing in”) before the tires are pushed, for better performance. Set cold air pressure at an adequate psi to handle the weight of the car. On track, gradually increase speed subsequently for a minimum 3-4 laps, not to exceed 85% capacity*, followed by an off the car cooling period of not less than 24 hours, which will result in a much improved tire life and on track performance for future sessions.
If this procedure is not possible due to losing on track sessions – PTS can heat cycle your tires prior to shipping them to you, which will reduce (not replace) the break in procedure required for all Nankang competition tires.
This is a proven procedure to enhance and improve your on track experience, gathered from many years of our own racing experience and track events, as well as the many experienced drivers we have worked with over the years.

Introducing the Nankang SL-1 

The Nankang SL-1 is Nankang's full radial slick, developed from the ground up for serious motorsport and race use.

After years of success with the Nankang AR-1 in grassroots motorsports, Nankang developed the SL-1 compiling everything they have observed and learned over the years and have put this knowledge into a completely new full slick competition tire.

Available in 6 sizes in medium compound 


*Caution: The Nankang SL-1 is recommended for competition events only.

 Allow an extra day for heat-cycling.
