Top Nankang XR611 Review

Given 47% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 307 (195/65 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 14,000 average miles
bought 4x for 140 last summer. I really disappointed by the performance they deliver. Really dangerous when going around any roudabout. The rubber was tough hence the rolling noise was more than average. In heavy rain they lost grip and after a shocking skidding experience I put Bridgestone All Weather(220 for four tyres) and they are supplended. I've learnt my lesson and now advising every sensible person who is going to buy these s**tkong tyres.
Don't put yourself on risk just for the sake of some extra money.

Have these on a Skoda Felicia 1.3 MPI. Fantastic tyre running at 30 psi. Vehicle used as a car I have no complaints. Bought from Bathwick Tyers Trowbridge Wiltshire. Cheap tyer but a premium service from the supplier and the Tyers. Will use these tyres again without a doubt...

Given 53% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 406 coupe (205/60 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 20 average miles
I have mostly used Continental tyres in the past however, being a little financially challenged in recent years and after some research on this site I decided to take the plunge and try some Budget brand tyres. First & foremost "You get what you pay for and most of the Tyres the general public buy are summer Tyres".
I purchased 4 Nankang Tyres online and had them fitted locally ((Total cost March 2011 £210 for all 4) absolute bargain compared to the prices I was used to paying. The first thing you notice with these Tyres is the increase in road noise compared to previous tyres but you soon get used to this then the handling which, I had braced myself for knowing they were going to be poor compared to Conti's again you get used to how far you can push the car in dry and wet conditions and, in my opinion they are not the best Tyre in the world but if you keep this in mind and adjust your driving accordingly they are fine, it made me a safer / slower driver. Traction / grip in dry is acceptable, in the wet they are a little deficient (watch it on roundabouts, the word Drift comes to mind). These Tyres saw me through two and half years as I have just had the fronts replaced after 20600 miles with Avon ZV5, two Winters and in the snow they are also deficient (remember they are Summer Tyres), the Rears still have quite a bit of life in them. Went out after new Avons fitted to the Front and it's at this point I realised just how poor the old tyres were but, in all fairness the old Nankangs were worn out. Summary:- Nankang tyres represent excellent value for money and mileage and, you must keep in mind they are a Budget brand Summer Tyre so they are not going to perform like one of the leading brands, would I recommend or buy again? Yes if price is the main factor.

Given 46% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Polo 6N (185/55 R14 H) on mostly town for 2,000 easy going miles
Not a bad grip at all (in DRY!!!!).

In wet these were the WORSE tyres i have ever seen!!
Really really DANGEROUS!!
I honestly believe they should be FORBIDDEN to be sold for road safety reasons.

Examples in wet:
-Aquaplanning - a bit of water in the road and you cant be carefull enough, sometimes it looked like the slower you go, the more times it happened (i got quite a few scary episodes)
-Going on normal road in a curve, if you touch the throttle (as to mantain a constant low speed), the tyres will lose grip completely and the car will continue going straight ahead, it would just go off the ground.
-Going up hills it was very usual for the front wheels to keep on spining for a long time before the car started to move (and we are talking about a 999cc. w/50bhp..surely wasnt for the incredible amount of torque)

I cannot talk about the wear of the tyres because they were so dangerous in wet i got rid of them in less than 1,500km (in my opinion, a new set of good tyres was a better deal than a new front end of the car!).
I believe it would be good because the compound was really hard.

Given 27% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo 240 estate (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 5,000 spirited miles
I reckon they're pretty terrible tyres.

I've got a Pirelli P6 on one side, and one of these Nankangs on the other, I bought the car like this. The tyre had 50% tread and is a 2010 make.

Hard braking, the Nangkang will lock up, creating an oversteer situation.
It is worse than the other 3 tyres on the car by a significant amount.

Wet grip is non existent, always spins.

It's a volvo 240 with 100HP but has no worries hitting 160 on the speedo with this nasty tyre.

Good for burnouts.

I know this "review" is dumb because I have mixed tyres but it really is the worst of the bunch.

Cars have a brake proportioning valve so that the rear wheels cannot lock under braking, there is a heavy bias towards the front, around 75 front, 25% rear.

This thing locks up in the dry before the fronts are even close. dodgy dodgy tyre.
