Porsche - Wheels


Tires and wheel systems play a crucial role in driving dynamics and vehicle safety. Innovative control systems and tire testing guarantee the fulfillment of both aspects without compromising driving comfort. Wheel lightweight construction contributes significantly to reducing the unsprung and rotationally accelerated masses. This optimizes driving characteristics and CO2 emissions.
