Tyre Test Highlights

2013 Auto Bild Performance Summer Tyre Test - 3rd of 8 tyres

  • Positive - A strong all all-rounder with a balanced performance on wet and dry conditions.┬áStable running, short braking distances, excellent ride comfort and low noise
  • Negative - Average rolling resistance. Subjectively a little numb

2012 Auto Bild 20 inch Tyre Test - 6th of 8 tyres

  • Positive - Good curved aquaplaning, neutral handling.
  • Negative - Slightly increased rolling resistance.

2012 EVO Summer Tyre Test - 10th of 10 tyres

  • Overall - While the Nexen N8000 might be the least expensive tyre on test, it proves that you get what you pay for by being slowest by a fair margin in the wet, and subjectively one of the worst tyres on test

Questions and Answers for the Nexen N8000

2016-03-26 - Just put 4 n8000 on my audi a4. Why are they so noisey is that normal????

While the Nexen N8000 hasn't been featured in a test in recent years, in one test in 2013 is was particularly recommended as a quiet tyre (details can be found here. Depending on just how noisy the new tyre is, we'd suggest getting your alignment checked to ensure even wear, or checking the pressures.
One thing worth noting is that a lot of noise comes from tread pattern, so all other things being equal, a tyre with more tread depth will be noisier.

Top Nexen N8000 Review

Given 78% (breakdown) while driving a SEAT Leon FR+ (225/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,500 average miles
Bought these to replace my ps3s, which were amazing in wet and dry conditions, however budget constraints meant had to replace with something cheaper. Initially for the first 500 miles or so they were awful, then after dropping my tyre pressure and they had worn in, they have started to perform well, pretty grippy in wet and dry conditions, can confidently hit bends at similar speeds with ps3s on, will probably try something else but for the money well worth it, far better than other budget brands hands down! Give them a try if you're on a budget, you don't b disappointed.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Passat Estate 2.0 TDI (170) (235/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 16,000 spirited miles
Fitted these to my 2012 VW Passat 2.0 TDI 170 Estate (remapped to 210BHP) on an Eibach suspension. They replaced the standard Pirelli Cinturato that were on it.

After 16000 miles of 'spirited' driving they are half worn (down to 4.5 / 5 mm) - swapped around at 11,000 miles.
The grip is excellent both in the wet and dry, and tyre noise - no different from the Pirelli's. Good feedback from the tyres and fuel economy no different from the Pirelli's.

An excellent all round tyre in my opinion and they cost less than half the price of the Pirelli's - absolute bargain. For anyone considering these i would definitely recommend.

These tyres are no good. Failed MOT first year due to inside wall defaults. Company might say they are good but believe me don't buy and the tyres wont last. Tried resolving with the company I brought them with and nexen company " Stapleton's (Tyre Services) Ltd, , Erdington, Birmingham, B24 9QP" but no joy. Beware!!!

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz C63 AMG (275/30 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 11,000 spirited miles
I bought a Mercedes C63 AMG with these tyres fitted from a dealership and assumed the worst. I have been driving on them for a year and they have really impressed in all weather. Obviously due to the car I don't go mad on wet corners but everyday wet driving has not been an issue. In the dry they have performed really well and I have grown to trust them on fast bends / corners. Would certainly buy again.
