Nissan 370Z Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Nexen N8000 given 100% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6000 spirited miles
I'm going to sound like I work for the company but I just can't believe these tyres!! Iv'e got them on a Nissan 370Z so a bit of a beast and these tyres are very much at home.

When I viewed the car it had bridgestones on it and the dealer said he would replace as they were bald - I was fuming when I picked it up to find no Bridgestones and something called Nexen's !!!

Was going to take it back but then pushed them and pushed them and they far outperform the Bridgestones at about a quarter of the price. Cornering at speed in wet or dry rock solid. Stopping distances almost instant !

Absolutely stunning tyre for the money - would happily pay Bridgestone/Pirelli prices for these !!

Driving on mostly motorways for 30000 average miles
Just getting ready to replace my rear 452's after 30,000 brilliant miles. They have done everything expected of them, considerable quieter than the Bridgestones that were fitted as standard. In the last 5,000 there has been a little bit of extra niose from the rear ones, but i've got a niosy car anyway. The fronts will go for another 4 or 5,000 miles as they are still on 4.5mm. When you consider the price of them in comparison to Dunlops, Michelins etc they are fantastic value.

Writing about the Federal Evoluzion ST 1 given 80% (275-30-20-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 200 spirited miles
Have recently changed all 4 tyres to these new Federal st1's and am relatively impressed with the performance they provide. Ive come from a mix of budget tyres including Achilles ATRs, Nexens and Sailun ZSR's. The ST1's are noticeably quieter and have far better dry grip and handling. Am yet to test in wet conditions but so far very happy for the price.

Replace the set of PS2, these tyres had more grip in both dry and wet than the PS2 and significantly better than the original RE050A. Quicker turn in and better road feedback, very grippy but it did give me a feel of sudden lost of grip at the limit than the PS2. Good fun on the track. They were also more quiet and less harsh even I had 98 at front and 100 loadings at the back. The PSS triggered the traction control to step in earlier than other sets, I got a habit of turning off the traction control when i started the engine.

My set didn't last very long though, had them for around 18ks before replacing them because cracks appeared on the surface of both rear tyres and at similar locations - cracks along the circumference on the inner tread blocks. My mechanics said the tyres were delaminating. Tyres made in week 13 of 2016, so about 3yrs old and no more.

Driving on a combination of roads for 9500 spirited miles
Assuming this tyre to be the pinnacle for grip, I am disappointed. The dealer placed the 'star rated' (BMW) tyres on my 370z &there is little grip when cold and or mildly warm. When only properly hot do I start to get grip but that means a lot of wheel spin &sliding prior. Not ideal in public on the street. No issues normal driving or rain. Recently at CONSTANT throttle on a reasonable curving road the rear stepped out and was saved by the electronics. Unacceptable when I can drive that corner faster in a standard NA Ford Focus with no drama, in any other car either? Seems the Star rated is very different from the standard version, more a track tyre &terrible on the street

THIS is for those of you who are looking for a REAL genuine feedback of the 595RSR. There is just too many different feedback from many diversity of the general population. Each and every individuals may have different ratings and standards. What you are looking for is a feedback that will genuinely help you understand the nature of this tire from professional drivers.

This tire is suitable for spirited to aggressive drivers with performance to high performance vehicles.

Tested on FF and FR performance vehicles with REAL-TIME Professional drivers:
90 degree Cornering at 90~120km/h: Excellent
180 degree cornering at 40~80km/h: Excellent
Full Throttle Acceleration at 0km/h to 100km/h: Excellent
Full Braking from 100 to 0km/h: Excellent
TreadWear: Below Average (Can't expect good treadlife with these tires)
Comfort/Noise: Poor (Don't expect comfortable quiet tires with these)

Additional Notes:
- Not recommended for daily commute drivers (treadlife is short on these)
- Recommended for Spirited to Aggressive Drivers.
- Handling is good for brand new tires, but degrades when you have remaining 60% thread left. So in other words Excellent handling for the first 5000 miles, and becomes average to poor for the remaining thread life.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 given 70% (275-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 spirited miles
These tyres replaced the RE050A on my car. Initially it was very similar to the RE050A until driven these on the tracks. Definitely better dry grip, better feedback and better initial turn in than the bridgestone. Would say not as sticky as the PSS replacing these PS2, but I like the linear feedback during turns from these tyres. The PS2 on my car didn't perform well in wet, felt wet grip was lacking. They were also noisier than the RE050A and had a harsher ride. These tyres lasted around 24ks on my car, no complain.

Writing about the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A given 67% (275-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 21700 spirited miles
Tyres came as standard on my car. Done about 35k before it got replaced with Michelin PS2, which is quite good for performance tyres, in fact they were the longest lasting set for the car. Dry grip was there but I found I had to drive it hard to extract the grip from these tyres. In wet, these tyres were terrible when compared to other like PS2, PSS and V105 tyres I had, there was no confidence in cornering in wet and often ended in massive understeer. The RE050A were quiet though, they were less harsh than the Michelins I had probably because the Michelins had 98 and 100 loadings instead of the bridgestone's 96. They were not cheap hence I would recommend other tyres.

Driving on a combination of roads for 14000 spirited miles
These were OEM fit on my front wheels with 94 L/I. Handling at low to medium speeds was sluggish, tram lining was terrible and felt unsure when cornering, all becoming far worse with wear. Although they have good grip they also felt too light and uncomunitive with spirited driving.
Have a new set of higher loading PS2s fitted now which show how bad (or at least unsuited) the 050As were. Every aspect is far improved.
All in all I wouldn't buy again or recommend fitting to a 370Z.
