Nankang/Nexen Tyres

Found these on ebay

New 18" 235/40 18 Nankang NS2 UHP Tyres - eBay Tyres, Wheels, Tyres, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 31-Mar-09 00:00:44 AEDST)

Just wondering what sort of quality these tyres are as they seem like a good deal. Im was dead keen on Falkens, but the load ratings to low for me. Am i better of with some Kumhos, or these Nexens (Brand New 235-40-18 NEXEN Performance Tyres Quality!! - eBay Tyres, Wheels, Tyres, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 27-Mar-09 19:30:00 AEDST)) or suggest me something else!

Cheers

I couldn't avoid it but when i bought my VZ SV6 last may, it had Nankangs on (235/45 R17 94V)
In ur case i would say no dont get them, there a hard compound tyre which have outstanding grip in the dry but that is a totally different story in the wet, very little grip at in the wet, if u have t/c its useless with these tyres on.

I have 20" (20x30x235) tyres on the WH statesman, & yes the compound is hard.
Takes ages to soften up to reduce the noise & lose the 'lumps'.
If they had told me that when i brought them i wouldve gone with i diff brand

You have to be cautious with Nankangs, there's 2 types, on is 95H rated and the other is a higher rated 'V' or 'Y'.

Obviously the H isn't as good and is where a lot of the Nankang complaints come from. This only applies to 18" size and smaller I believe. I have 19" nankangs and they are a bit skatey on the rear in the wet, but more than adequate in the dry.

I've got a set on my VT, havent had any problems with them. Am going to be putting a brand new set on very soon aswell as i see no reason to spend mega $$ on tyres when these grip well around corners, go good from a start and stop adequately.
