This new original equipment (OE) tyre has been specially geared to the dynamic characteristics of the Korean hot hatch. Produced at Pirelli’s high-technology plant in Settimo Torinese, Italy, it is a unique variant of Pirelli’s P Zero UHP summer tyre with the dimension of 235/35 R19.
This tailor-made P Zero tyre has been marked with “HN” on the sidewall by Hyundai Performance N to denote its OE fitment for the i30 N. This recent collaboration between Pirelli and Hyundai Performance N exemplifies Pirelli’s ‘Perfect Fit’ strategy, where Pirelli engineers develop individual tyres for each car manufacturer to specifically complement and enhance a particular car’s technical requirements and characteristics.
Pirelli’s ‘Perfect Fit’ strategy has made it a worldwide market leader in original equipment tyres, especially in the premium and prestige market segments. Pirelli has expanded its impressive portfolio once again through joining forces with Hyundai Performance N.
The i30 N is Hyundai Motor’s first high-performance car under the N lineup. Built on the New Generation i30, the i30 N has been developed to deliver maximum driving pleasure in everyday life on the road and maximum performance on the track. The car’s versatility demands the highest performance and safety standards from a tyre in all road conditions. Therefore, Pirelli engineers developed an individual edition of the P Zero to meet the requirements of the new i30 N.
