Has anyone tried putting Nankang tyres on their RCZ (235/40/19)?

regards

not sure about on a Z but a mate of mine had them on his TT and swore by them reckoned they were performance tyres at half the price

Hi

Thanks for the reply.
They are half the price of contis and the reviews seem pretty good.

i've found As-1 £119 fully fitted, reviews seem ok :eusa-think: that being said i'd still stick with the usual suspects and spend a bit more, after all its the last thing to affect cornering/braking and these are usually cheaper for a reason.

I have nankangs on the front of my car. 255/30/20 and they are great :)
Sorry not much of a review, but they are better than the two odd ones that came with the car, and better than any budget tyres I have bought for other cars in the past :)

Unfortunately "Nankang Shod RWD car" translates in Aussie as "Ditch Sensing Missile"

Horses for courses. Here they are Ok when new and in the dry, but have a reputation of going hard quickly in our heat and having rubbish grip in downfall conditions.

As for FWD, they have a slightly better rep, but in the wet do add understeer and spin-up too easily off the paintwork from stoplights. If you have to drive like "Daisy" in the wet, what's the point of saving a few pennies to risk pounds.

As for budget tyres, newcomers Evergreen [EU72] have been given a fair bit of kudos - but they don't do a 235x40x19 - yet . Insurance coys here don't like non-placard tyres fitted and will attempt to wipe their cover if they can pin even a tenuous tyre issue/cause to an incident. While a 245x35x19 is available and at 2% speedo error its a technical equivalent, it would be a harsher ride, and you still may have issues with insurance. Franchised tyre dealers simply won't fit non placard tyers anymore due to legal backlash risks, but there are many independent that will still do it.
