Are these N rated?

Porsche haven’t approved any 21” winters for the Macan.

They are marked "V XL" - so probably not n-rated. Looking at previous response, that might be why it was a limited choice of tyres.

The Porsche approved "N-" symbol is shown separately on the sidewall.

V XL - Those are the speed and "extra load" load rating symbols:

Thanks, I knew there are no 21s currently "N" rated but, as these were used, I wondered if they might be from a time when they were - like they no longer N rate an all season tyre but if you can find stock it is still valid.

Looks like these are the ones with the lower speed rating anyway, Conti do two different one, so these won't meet my needs.

Appreciate the response.

Cheers,

Ben
