A big buzz is going around during this off-season that Nankang Tire is set to arrive in the USA for 2015 in a big way with a dive into Formula Drift. The rumor has been soaring around teams and others involved in the drifting series. It is strange that we cannot pinpoint any direct teams they seem to be talking with for 2015 but the rumor seems to be pretty consistent across the paddock.
In 2014 Nankang made a huge press release launching a large amount of drivers across Europe so the expansion does make sense. What does everyone know or think about the tires and how are they as far as a performance tire against the new blood in Formula Drift such as Achilles and GT Radial remains to be seen.
