Latest Group Test Results

2015 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 14th of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Good resistance to aquaplaning
  • Negative - Weak grip and poor handling on wet surfaces. Low level of comfort
  • Overall - The Nankang Econex NA-1 have long braking distances and a very weak lateral grip on wet surfaces. Sharp manoeuvres are unlikely to succeed because the tyres can dramatically lose contact with the road. However, they have good resistance to aquaplaning. In the dry the situation is somewhat better, but they don't cope well enough with emergency situations. Not very effective at absorbing road irregularities, and noise is clearly audible in the cabin. Only average fuel economy.

Top Nankang Econex NA1 Review

Given 50% while driving a Skoda Estelle 130 (165/80 R13) on mostly country roads for 200 average miles
Its hard to get a decent 165 R13 tyre these days. Its either no-name budget tyres or £200 plus per tyre specialist ones. What happened to the middle ground? These tyres are pretty much it for that area now.

I bought two for my Skoda Estelle 130. They went on the rear, but honeslly the handling is now horrible - the sidewall is too soft so the car feels like its on a waterbed, wobbling and lurching. So I moved them to the front and here they are tolerable.

Its like Nankang never bothered to actulaly try these tyres on the road and just made them and sold them. I ended up ordering Vreidestein Sprint + online but these are now discontinued. The Spring + are fine, no lurching.

To sum up, Nankang sucks the fun out of driving and leaves your passengers feeling queasy.

Toyota (175/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 12,000 easy going miles
Super tyres for handling. Came with only 6mm tread when new, and the little transverse fins are only 4mm so when the main 3 radial grooves are half worn the left and right edges are about bald. Need to replace at 12k miles when I usually get 18k
