    Ok, yes they were cheap and do a job, but you pay for what you get. My Alpina roadster 3.4 previously had Michelin pilots. I had it on track and they stuck like glue. With these nexen tyres, I dare not take it on a track. Several times in damp and wet conditions I have lost the back end more than I would like. The tread is also less at 6mm to the michelen's 8mm. I fear the sidewall rigidity, or lack of it is what looses your confidence when cornering fast. For a car that gets 0- 60 in 5secs, I will definitely go back to Michelin next time. However, these nexens will get used and they have good acceleration and breaking grip, just not to be trusted in the wet.

    This is a great tyre especial for the price. I have these on a remapped 300hp BMW 530d and they are great. Half the price of the mainstream makes and very nearly as good as the Dunlops i had on before. The N800's are better than the Bridgestone runflats that came with the car. The only downside is the rate at which they have worn which is faster than i'd expect. Great value tyre.

    I am happy with the tyres, having bought them twice now. I used to insist on premium tyres but really don't see the need. I am VERY impressed with OPONEO, telephone help in making the purchasing decision was top-notch, delivery was magically quick, and prices unbeatable.

    This Ne end is a very good quality tyre. It looks nice on the car. Grip is very good in both wet and dry. Very very slight noise from the road....obviously due to road conditions. I would buy again.

Product description

Nexen N8000 205/40 R18 86 Y XL

The Nexen N8000 is designed for everyday driving. Its asymmetric tread pattern ensures excellent driving performance in various weather conditions.

The tyres are very durable and perform extremely well on both wet and dry surfaces. The asymmetric tread pattern quickly disperses water and guarantees a reduction in the risk of aquaplaning. The model's benefits include excellent grip and thus improved safety. The model has been developed using a state-of-the-art rubber compound that maintains the correct tread rigidity over a wide range of temperatures.

The engineers who designed the tyre put a lot of effort into achieving a balanced distribution of forces. As a result the tyre wears evenly, ensuring superb performance throughout the tyre's lifetime. The model is a good option for drivers looking for a summer tyre that offers a balanced performance at a reasonable price.

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.
