I used Nexen tyres and found them to be really good but need new tyres. Was going to try a set of Nankangs. What you guys think about these?

If you drive normally...I say it doesn't really matter. But if you take corners a bit faster then the average driver then you might want to get some better brand tyres. You might want to find tyres that are good on both wet and dry roads...special attention to wet roads or else the next thing you see when turning a corner might be a tree.

And to answer your question...I have never tried Nankangs and I don't think many people have complained about them...I THINK.

hope that helps

Nankangs are pretty good tyres for the price, however in my experience of using them when they get to the 50% wear mark I wouldnt be doing any hardcore driving
