    I bought these as I wanted something track orientated after upgrading the engine to a 2ZZ and the suspension to coilovers, poly bushes, Whiteline ARBs, I also have the geometry setup for fast road/track use. I've not driven many miles but I like the feel and feedback (Stiff sidewall). Plenty of grip in the dry and good in the wet on the motorway in heavy rain and flooding. Need to try them on the track for a full verdict. For the price this are great Value for Money and I would recommend them.

    Tyres are a very soft compound, lots of grip in the dry, and surprisingly grippy in wet weather! Only negatives about these are that they fail to work under negative temperatures and do not have good traction below 5 degrees. The sidewall is very stiff which makes for great steering response and input. Overall great tyres, although they do wear out quite quickly if driven hard.

    My car is used in sports - I was looking for good tyres in good price. There was no information on the Internet but i took the risk and bought NS-2R. The purchase turned out to be a hit, on the dry these tyres are holding sensational. Unfortunately, it is not so good in the wet, but I still recommend it to anyone who burns the car on the track.

The optimised design of the tyre and the wide tread improve the stability during a high-speed drive. Nankang NS-2R WT is silent, has an attractive look and wears slowly and evenly. The tyre is proposed for all the speed lovers who also value safety and comfort in any weather conditions.

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.
