    One of my Nankangs As1 was damaged on its side while falling into a hole. It was imposible to repair it. I used Michelins and they were tougher than these Nankangs.

    I bought two, because the other pair has not needed to be replaced. It is time for the other two and I will surelly go for Nankang again.

    One of the cheapest tires that match my car worked excellently. After two seasons of use I can see that it was a good buy.

    AMAZING! Given that I am not a pilot but a regular user of the car with these tyres (I changed only two during that time: those in front) the car holds the road well. In both dry and wet conditions for Nankang AS 1 I haven’t noticed a lot differences: a tad bit less cornering grip in the wet, but I had to force my hand for it to slightly lose its grip, however, I immediately recovered. Taking curves absolutely precise and immediate steering response to stress. I could not try them on snow as it hasn’t snowed yet :) and I cannot comment on the durability, as I have them only for short period of time. Overall, I can only express absolutely positive opinion. I will complete the set with the two rear tyres and then purchase those tyres again! The price is definitely excelled. The tyres in question are mounted on a Peugeot 207 1.6 HDi 110CV. Finally, I wish to point out that they are made in China (along with almost all the products that come to us) although the company Nankang, one of the oldest manufacturers of tyres, is based in Taiwan.

Product description

Nankang AS 1 205/55 R17 91 V

Nankang AS 1 is a model intended for different weather conditions in summer. With its innovative technologies, it is mainly recommended for the vehicles which travel distances above the average. The compound used to produce Nankang AS 1 includes silica. Thanks to this, the tread is more resistant to abrasion and has a higher durability. The AS 1 model is equipped with an asymmetric tread consisting of two separate sections having different functions. The external section is responsible for an effective skid protection thanks to its arched grooves and wide circumferential channels. The internal section is built of strips with serrated edges and a notch which allows continued highly smooth driving.

Label

The Nankang AS 1 tyre in size 205/55 R17 91 V, according to the manufacturer's information, has the following drivability qualities:

  • E
  • C
  • 71 dB
E C 71 dB

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Noise

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
