Slight hijack, has anyone had Nexen tyres and what are your opinions? They are apparently a subsiduary of Michelin, I've been told.

Nexen, Nankang. They both start with N so it's not really off topic :wink:
nothing at all to do with michelin ive never heard of them may be a rip off of a michelin but nothing to do with them

Whats a good price for some Nangkang 215/60/14 ?? I want a full set. Maybe 15's too.

I am running (dont laugh :lol: ) Highway Max!!! woo hoo!! cost me a whole $75 each :lol:

I need some mags - 5 spoke eb xr6's will do :)

And also I live in the east subs of melb - who sells the nanna-kangas??

Cheers

Im running Nankang NS2 Ultra Sport 235/40/18 on my EF.Ive found them to be a grippy in the dry and wet, nice wearing rate and for a great price too.The only problem is they are fairly noisy,but you cant have everything from a performance tyre of this price.

the nankangs, seem to be a harder compound to the yokohamas. I've gotten 30K+ out this set, and they're still easily 30% tread (before markers).

Must say, going from a set of Goodyear Eagle F1's to these, I'm most happy with them, they're better all round, and have lasted 3 times as long too. Bonus. I'll be getting them again.

Yep - as I said earlier I've got 15" Nankang EX-601's and had Pirelli P6000 and Dunlop FM901's previously and I'm completely happy with the Nankangs - they handle great, grip great wet and dry, brake great wet and dry, are nice and quiet and wear pretty good - I got barely 20K out of the FM901's but these EX-601's are lasting me about 60K no worries and no appreciable loss of performance as they get close to wear limit.

Hmm - what specific Nankangs are those? - I'm on my second set of EX-601's (225/60/15) in 3 years and have found them to track dead true even thru sheeting water and puddles and have had no dramas with traction, grip or braking in the wet.

A lot of my car's excellent wet handling might be due to the Bilsteins but the tyres must be playing their part.

Compared to what, what was wrong with them?
I don't think I've ever heard a bad report about them. The boys over at LS1 seem to love them too.

There's a LS1 Caprice, running high 11's with Nankang NS2s.
