165/80 13 Tyre Review Highlights

Nankang Econex NA1 rated 50% while driving a Skoda Estelle 130
Driving 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.
