Latest Group Test Results

2020 Teknikens 17 Inch Summer Tyre Test - 10th of 10 tyres

  • Positive - Low rolling resistance.
  • Negative - With the exception of economy, the complete absence of positive aspects - you expect more from the tyre of this brand. The longest braking distance on dry and wet surfaces, poor wet handling, low comfort.

2017 Auto Bild Summer Tyre Shootout - 22nd of 43 tyres

2014 Auto Zeitung Summer Tyre Test - 7th of 12 tyres

  • Overall - The revised Nexen N FERA SU1 is fundamentally solid in the wet, but in the curved aquaplaning tests is floats very early

Questions and Answers for the Nexen N Fera SU1

2018-01-16 - Are these standard tread or directional?

The Nexen N Fera SU1 is an asymmetric tread design, not directional.

2019-05-10 - Are these tyres suitable for my 2012 VW T5 Campervan (275x40x20)?

As long as you can find the N Fera SU1 in the correct size and load rating for your vehicle, there's no reason you shouldn't use the tyre.

2020-05-04 - are these tyres run flat?

I'm not sure whether Nexen offer any runflat sizes of the SU1.

Top Nexen N Fera SU1 Review

Given 92% 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 40% while driving a Mitsubishi Colt (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 100 average miles
Driving a Mitsubishi Colt 1,3 these tyres makes a very noise loud. This is the only bad thing about this tire.

Given 83% while driving a Kia Motors (205/55 R16 H) on mostly town for 25,000 easy going miles
Tyres came together with Kia Cerato in Singapore. When it is new the grip is awesome. Now nearing 40,000KM the dry grip has dropped. The wet grip is very good. No aquaplanning at all even at 40K KM. Noise can be a issue when driving above 100km/hr. It's a pity Nexen stop producing this good tyre. At 40k KM i have about half of the thread left which is pretty good considered i drove mainly in city.

Given 94% while driving a BMW 328i (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
i just fitted my front tyres with NEXEN N'FERA SU1. first difference compared to the useless DAYTON DT30, the grip for the front is just tremendous. on DT30, when i push my car for a 60kmh fast corner entry, it just understeer and shoots for the rails. But with the N'FERA, it changed it all...turn in entry same corner now, 80kmh! and does not understeer!! it just grips and say "FUCK OFF!" to that corner. Road noise is way quieter than the DT30 when new. also the N'FERA really shows its quality of a performance tyre.

Given 98% while driving a Dacia Lodgy (195/55 R16 H) on track for 100 spirited miles
I drove on Nexen Nfera SU1 tyres on a very twisty racing circuit in my stock car (a stock Dacia Lodgy with 115hp), ya there weren't much horsepower but I can tell you, on dry tarmac these tyres had very good grip !

Given 69% while driving a Mazda Mazda6 Sedan 175 (225/45 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 23,000 average miles
dry grip was really good and noise level is fairly low on comparison with Bridgestone Turanza 005 that came with the Mazda 6 Sport 175. Bit disappointed on wet condition, braking was OK but during high torque start the wheel spin was not unavoidable and even during dry condition during half way through its life time the wheel spin started to occur during launches. Another disappointment was tread life, I am very smooth driver in-spite off my above comments I rarely do those launch type of starts otherwise most of my driving is cursing and accelerating and braking fairly smooth. But the tire reached its 1.6mm limit around 23000 miles. Will not buy these tires again, will try some other brand and see how it works! Thanks for reading!
