Top Nexen N Fera SU1 Review

Given 92% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 3.0 TFSI quattro (255/40 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
I was quite suspicious of the Nexens before buying, but the seller did a good job convincing me. I had bought several tires from him before so I trusted his opinion. Switched from Michelin Pilot Sport 2 to these.

A few thousand km after I'm really happy with them. Quieter than the PS2, better dry and wet grip. Perhaps the progressiveness is a bit worse than on the PS2, but it is hard to estimate well as it would need a track day, too scary to find the limit in normal traffic!

Given 95% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 318 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 1 easy going miles
I purchased the Next SU1 tyres having come from Bridgestone Performance Tyres which grip really well, but were considered noisy.

I am driving a BMW 3 Series on 18 Inch Alloys and once I swapped the Bridgestone for the Nexen Tyres I immediately could feel a significant difference in comfort and a reduction in noise.

I am incredibly impressed by the Nexen Tyres as I had never heard of the brand before, but once the Tyre Mechanic convinced me that it was of good quality and manufactured in Korea, I decided to try.

The Nexen Tyres are much more comfortable on the road, and glides over the road and uneven surfaces much better than my previous Bridgestone Potenzas. The Nexens are also much more quieter. Considering that they are also significantly cheaper than the popular brands, I will be sticking to Nexens from now on and swear by them for a good daily driver car's tyres! I am not sure of the performance of them as i do not drive my car hard.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo Titanium X (215/50 R17 W) on mostly town for 500 easy going miles
I bought 4 Nexen SU1 for my Mondeo Titanium X ( 2014 Reg ) after having Goodyear Efficient Grip on all 4 and then Pirelli P7 on fronts. To be honest the handling, comfort and road noise on the Nexens is as good or even better BUT, and it's a BIG BIG but for me, I was getting in excess of 50 MPG before the Nexens but am struggling to get 40 MPG on the Nexens. I have had a full geometry test on the car due to excessive wear on the Pirelli P7. Although the Nexens cost £76 opposed to £98-£110 for Goodyear/Pirelli, the MPG will ensure i don't buy Nexens in the future.

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI PP DSG (225/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Surprisingly these tires are very good. I was doubting them before i bought them, but after the sales man convinced me, i went for them. Plus they are a great deal cheaper than the Pirrellis that i had on my car. I have only had these tires for a day, but i am impressed already. immediately after the tires were fitted on i took the car out for a drive (dry road conditions) and performance of these tires is really good. Honestly there is no difference between these tires and the Pirelli, although i feel like the Nfera SU1 handles better in wet. Later at night it rained very hard, so i took the car out again to test the tires and i could comfortably do 180km/h - 190km/h in heavy heavy rain. Quite impressive !!
