The Nankang NS-20 tire is an economical performance tire for sedans and coupes with high-speed stability and handling, and a long lasting tread at a cheap tire price. The performance levels are accomplished thanks to special rubber compounds and tire construction. The tread itself also contributes to the good handing and wear. It has a continuous solid center rib design that provides good on center feel more typical of much more expensive premium brands. The value priced Nankang NS-20 tire also has wet weather and all-season grip because of the four circumferential grooves and the directional tread pattern that expels water efficiently. Cornering and enhanced stability and grip are accomplished with the notched and wide sectioned shoulder tread blocks.
This describes the sidewall appearance. Examples include Black Sidewall, White Sidewall, and White Letters.
The load index (LI) is a 2 or 3 digit number that corrolates to the maximum amount of weight the tire can carry. For example, a tire with a load index of 87 indicates that the tire can carry a maximim load of 1,201 lbs. In the case of our example the 87 identifies the tires ability to carry a maximum of 1,201 lbs. So 4 tires will carry a maximum of 4,804 lbs. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimim Load Index. It is not recommended to install tires with a lower Load Index. By doing so, this could cause your tires to be overloaded thus potentially causing a blowout.
Speed Ratings (SR) are based on laboratory tests and indicates the maximum speed the tire can achieve. These tests are based on limited time trials. Higher speed rating tires typically will yield better handling capabilities, but may often result in lower mileage. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimum Speed Rating. It is not recommended to install a tire with a lower speed rating as it could affect the handling of your vehicle. It is important to note that speed ratings only apply to tires that have not been damaged, altered, under-inflated or overloaded. Additionally, most tire manufacturers maintain that a tire that has been cut or punctured no longer retains the tire manufacturer's original speed rating, even after being repaired because the tire manufacturer can't control the quality of the repair.
|Ply Rating||Not Available||
Ply Rating is related to the max load capacity. This value can be defined with a letter or number. The higher the number/letter, the higher the load capacity.
To help consumers evaluate their tires, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) created the Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQG). The UTQG rates tires are rated on their tread-wear, traction performance, and temperature resistance. The grade for each of these can be found on the sidewall of your tire (except for winter tires and certain light truck tires). Click here for more information.
|Max Single Load(lbs)||1433||The maximum load this tire will support. Remember to multiply this number by the number of tires installed on your vehicle to get the maximum carrying capacity. This number is directly related to the Load Index.|
|Max Single Air Pressure(PSI)||51||The maximum air pressure this tire will support. This does not represent the amount of air pressure your tires should have at all times. Consult with your owner's manual to determine the best air pressure you should use for your vehicle.|
|Tread Depth||Not Available||The amount of tread on the tire. Once the tire is worn to 2/32nds, it is considered fully used and should be replaced at that time. Most tires will have tire indicators in the grooves of the tire to help you determine when the tires are worn down to 2/32nds.|
Nondirectional - most common, same tread pattern on inside & outside of the tire. Can be rotated to all four corners of vehicle. Asymmetrical - tread pattern is different on the inside to the outside of the tire, and must be mounted properly. Can be rotated to all four corners of the vehicle. Directional tires - roll in only one direction, must be mounted properly. Once mounted they must remain on the same side of the vehicle, and only be rotated front to rear.
|Rim Width Range||9.5-9.5||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||9.5||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||10.7||The measurement from sidewall to sidewall.|
|Tread Width||Not Available||The measurement from one side of the tread to the other side of the tread.|
|Overall Diameter||25.3||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|
|Manufacturer Part Number||24051008||Manufacturer part number (sku)|
Very happy would definitely purchase again I will use on all my vehicles
Great tires at a great price! Super fast shipping!!
3000 miles on a Versa so far. For the price, I am impressed. Good dry and wet traction, and minimal treadwear so far. Minimal weights were required to balance them. There is road noise, but not enough to bother me. It is too bad my car is a total pile of junk. I will save these tires for when I get a Miata.
Great grip on raining days I bought two set of these I love how it handle and the Proformance of it too.
Tires, prices, delivered quickly....all excellent....will be buying from T.E.com again.
I have an older Bmw 650. I didn't want to break the bank on new PS2's so I picked these up. They ride great If I can get 20 or 30k out of them it's all good. I live in AZ so I haven't used them in the rain but on dry pavement they are great!
Great value and a smooth ride.
Great price and performance.!!!!!!!!!!!
I showed these tires to my friends and family the really Like them on my car I let the know the price I paid for Them the also are considering purchasing for there cars Two
Really good tire for the price
These tires were a good deal. Didn't want to spend too much on them considering my car is a 98 Lexus es300. But it worked out perfect for my rims.

Awesome tires will buy again sometime
These tires are awesome and the price is amazing I always have a hard time finding economical tires for my BMW and I'm so happy I came across this website! I received the tires in a few days and they were in great condition.
200 beans for 4 brand new tires, can't beat that homie. And they even stayed nice after my wheel spacers broke and my tire smacked my inner wheel well
Tires arrived in fine shape, sadly the tire shop damaged one during install but I got another one and the shop paid for the damaged one, they are not noisy on the road and have great traction so far with what driving we have done.... Great Tires and Great prices, and free shipping to boot. I will purchase another set when it is time....
my biggest concern was road noise and ride comfort but these tires are great and for the price I will definitely be buying them again.
Great tires for the price , quiet and smooth would recommend .
good tires, good price
Great price and looks good too. :)
I've had these tires for around 2 months now. Drive good in the rain and on the dry pavement. I've put about 6000 miles on it so far and just rotated them for the first time.
Good tires at a good price
These tires were a great deal through Tires-Easy.com. I was hesitant about using this brand of tires as I did not have a lot of knowledge about this brand. However, after several reviews and the cost I could not pass them up. When I got my tires I was amazed at the design and quality of them. These are good looking tires and for my daily driver (BMW 7 series) have performed very well thus far. I needed a complete set of tires and this has got to be the "best bang for my buck" too date.
Tires have performed great during the spring and summer, hoping I get the same reliable quality during fall and winter.
Fast shipping, good quality, and great service. Thanks!
I am really appreciate the way you handled my situation,you doing great job guy.thank you so much.
You have a great product
2016 BMW 740i G11, staggered 20" M wheels. This set of Nankang NS-20 rides smoother and quieter than OE Bridgestone run-flat. The performance is adequate. Excellent tires from Nankang, Republic of China.
I bought 4 of these for the wifes car, they handle great and are very quiet also
