Re: Has any one tried Nankang tires?

I'm on my second set of 225/60/15 Nankang EX601's and have been VERY happy with them. They last very well and I don't have a problem at all with road noise - at least as good as FM901 and HEAPS better than P5000/6000 - and the handling and braking are as good as the FM901's and Pirellis.

Re: Has any one tried Nankang tires?

I am on my second set.
first didnt do that many k's due to severe shoulder wear @50 psi centre part of the tyre was hardly worn.
Both shoulders were wearing.
At this time it am heading to tyre fault!!!
new set is running @60 psi done only 6000 ks so far

Re: Has any one tried Nankang tires?

I had severe shoulder wear on my fronts for the first few 1000km after they went on (this was the first set of EX601's) - then I got an alignment done and by just setting the toe angle they came good - wore absolutely evenly from there on. I actually had no idea the alignment was out as the car felt and handled fine - after the toe adjustment the steering is a tad more inclined to centre itself (so I think the toe was too much "toe out" - which is consistent with shoulder wear).
