    Opinion of tires produced in China is very diverse, some users are happy with the use of another part is not, and does not recommend these tires. I decided to take a chance and buy a very Asian produkt. I am surprised that Nankang N20 tyres are so quality product. Tyres behave very well on both dry and wet asphalt, according to me, not make noise which is also a very important element of use. Their durability is also not bad. Tyres were used on different surfaces and I can not say a bad word about their performance. Very diverse range of sizes including those typical and some more rare sizes. Very good solutions retreaded when it comes to, for example, draining water. Personally recommend these tyres when it comes to quality and price. I decided to buy two sets of them and in the future I will probably buy some more tyres from Nankang.

    I have this tyre model fitted from some time now and I have to admit that I am pretty satisfied. Even when the tread is quite worn tyre can do the job. The carcass does not give any sign of abating.Until now they have performed very well in both wet and dry surface, nothing to complain. It must be admitted that now it is hard to expect the same quality and performance level but remember that I have done some decent mileage already. Nankang N20 works very well in all circumstances and do not get worn out easily which is important. I would say that they are pretty quiet but not ideal. I would certainly recommend these tires to all those who do not want to spend a fortune and you do not have to make the car racing. The calm drivers like me can buy them and will not be disappointed. Judgement: Very good tires at good value price.

    Nankang N20 is really easy to fit. There is no need to struggle with balancing which is really important for me as I do it by my own. It also shows the quality of the tyre in my opinion. If you can simply just put it on the wheel and you do not need to do too much with it it means that tyres should perform at leat good. I drive mostly in the city and this product is perfect for this purpose. I am not sure how it would act on the highway and some speed driving but I do not really need that. It seems that it is little bit stiffer that some other tyres in the same class level but it is also not an issue for me. As the owner of the fitting station and experienced drived I can recommend this tyre for everyone who does not need any kind of sportage features from the tyres fitted. Perfect for a city usage.

    I need to say that I am really surprised by Nankang N20. I was pretty sure that it will be not the best choice as it is not European company but after some time I found out that I was completely wrong. I was surprised more and more after every mile done. I could not really believe that this kind of tyre can be so good so I made some tests by my own. Speed driving, instant braking and this kind of situations. Of course it is not ideal but seems to be better that other budget class competitors. I think that it would be hard to find better tyre for similar price. This Nankand model is quite hard which is fine for me, rather advantage than a flaw. It provides good traction and safety. Recommended.

    Although I have not done the huge mileage on this tyres but impression is not comparatively better than the previous tyres I had. In fact I used some other economic class tyres so expectations should be not really high but Nankang N20 suits my needs perfectly. Wet grip deserves for a special prise. I know I may exaggerating now but sometimes I felt like there is no water on the road at all. Of course it is necessary to drive sensibly, does not matter what tyres are fitted. It provides safety which is the most important thing and not really often for a tyres which are not considered as the top level product. I can recommend with clear conscience.

Product description

Nankang NS 20 165/40 R16 73 V XL

The Nankang NS 20 has a directional tread pattern, which maintains excellent performance specifications on wet surfaces. The specially designed V-shaped grooves are responsible for quickly and effectively dispersing water, reducing the risk of aquaplaning. The blades located on the tyre shoulders are responsible for driving stability, traction control and optimal grip in any conditions. The Nankang NS 20 also offers a quiet and comfortable driving experience. The state-of-the-art compound and innovative tread pattern help reduce tyre noise, significantly improving driver comfort.

Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

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.
