The Nankang AS-1 tire is an asymmetrical performance tire whose tread design offers performance, traction and touring comfort for coupes and sedans. Benefits of this value priced tire include a tread pattern that does not produce tread "whine" and an internal construction of belts that absorb road shock. This means reduced noise for a quiet and comfortable ride. The good handling is thanks to a shoulder tread block arrangement that enhances cornering performance. The angled tread blocks and circumferential grooves also contribute to the performance by evacuating water efficiently in adverse weather conditions.
Trust me, these tires are inexpensive, but they're worth every single penny. I was looking for some decent all-season tires that was stable in the rain as well as dry, without spirited driving or sports performance. These Nankang tires were IT!
I could not believe how much more stable my car became after I put these on versus my old Hankooks.
They are Taiwanese tires, and *NOT* Chinese tires, which makes a world of difference.
Very good tires.
Great tires for a great price.

Great tires at great price.
Wasn't sure what to expect from these, as I needed some tires quick for an inspection. I wanted something solid, but not a lot of money, because I knew I would be buying bigger tires and biggger rims in the near future. I'm surprised at how much I like these tires. I purchased 4 staggard tires and have no complaints at all. They are not loud on the road, get good tractions and do well in the rain, plus they look good. I have not tried them in the snow yet, but I would buy this brand again.
