  • 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.

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 97% while driving a Acura RSX S Type (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Value for money, very quiet, good wet grip too

Given 66% while driving a BMW F11 520d (245/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 6,200 spirited miles
Dry Grip: the grip level is not really hight, especially in braking. Wet Grip: feels safe on wet. Easy to control with an predictable behavior. Road feedback: you can notice quite early, wenn the tire loses grip. Street conditions are also good noticeable in the steering wheel. Handling: The behavior of the tire is very predictable. It is signalizing early if it loses grip. The front and rear is very balanced on my car (weight distribution f/r/ ~47/53) and the tyre handles very good with it. Especially in the wet. But the overall grip level is not on the level of an PS4. Wear: Im driving the tyre for 6 month and 10000km. Often i take curves hard and one time i was driving on fast mountain roads. So i wonder how slowly the tyres are wearing. Comfort: could be a little bit quieter for a touring tyre and a little bit less bumpy. But in total, you can live with it fairly well. Buy again: If you want a real UHP tyre and can spend a little bit more money, this is not the right tyre for you. If you will safe money and want a slowly wearing touring tyre which is good in the wet, this is the right tyre for you.

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.
