    I bought Nankangs NS2 195/55R15 in 2008. I thought that these stories about chinese tyres are a total lie. Bulge on 1/4 of the tyre lenght without any mechanical failure. My fitting station said: cracked canvas! I don't recommend them at all.

    Brilliant on dry. Bit less brilliant when it comes to wet road. They didnt disappoint me and my wife. The price is also perfect. They behave simmilar to Bridgestone Turanza.

    Superb quality and price. I dont see any difference between Nankang S2 and the more expensive ones.

    Since 1998 I've been driving with Conti or Bridgestone and than I realised that 3-5 season tires are just tragic and I decided to buy new Nankangs NS2. 225/45/17 are realy good. They are much more quiet than Dunlop Sport 2000 and Fulda Exelero. They are not feathering.I checked them in a quite huge rain and I wasn't disappointed. I wont dispute with fake drivers who claim that any new tires are hopeless. They should know that driving into a wall of rain on hot tires or braking in the rut full of water even with the most expensive tires can be dangerous... you cannot cheat the laws of physics. The new tire from a less known Porducent will always be better than multi-seasonal from best known. I have tested them in Corsa, Getz, Panda, AstryII, A3, A4, A6, C and E classes during winter and summer. I was very skeptical about the Nankangs but they suprised me positively..It makes no sense to overpay and buy expensive tyres when you can buy cheaper and comparable Nankangs.

Product description

Nankang NS 2 195/55 R15 85 V

The Nankang NS 2 is a summer tyre with a directional tread pattern, which offers optimal performance in different weather conditions. Its wide grooves quickly disperse water, minimising the risk of aquaplaning, meaning that the car maintains its grip on the road, even in heavy downpours.

The unique tread design and the use of an innovative rubber compound have helped reduce noise levels, making driving on Nankang NS 2 tyres a comfortable and quiet experience.

The tyre's reinforced shoulder area provides an excellent smooth performance on uneven surfaces, whilst also ensuring driving stability and good traction. The model is also resistant to mechanical damage and wears evenly, guaranteeing its full performance specifications for its entire lifetime.


Nankang was founded in Taiwan in 1959. In the 1970s the company opened a branch in Australia, where it remains extremely popular to this day. The brand later exported its tyres to the USA, South America and Europe and in 1991 Nankang received the CE marking, certifying that its products comply with European Union directives. Four years before that, Nankang received a Q1 certificate from the Ford Motor Company (the company has worked together with the Ford group for many years). Nankang also owns the brands Sonar Tire (car tyres) and Roadiac (motorcycle tyres).

Nankang NS 2 summer tyre is classified as economic tyre, which means that it provides the most favourable price and good performance.
Now, you are looking at the tyre with the size of 195/55 R15.

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.


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.
