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.
Great tires for a 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.

These are great tires at excellent price, plus prompt shipping.
Just over 2 months in, these tires have been pretty darn good, especially for the price. I gave them a shot with the idea I'd only be out $500 if I needed to change to something else, it was worth the risk. They are on factory 21" Tesla Model S wheels. They ride well, have great traction, and overall not bad on noise. I will say after 2500 miles I've already been a little concerned on wear, but we'll see, only time will tell. Haven't had any issues with leaks, etc.
These tires are great for the price. I was afraid that I would loose performance in my car, but I have not noticed any lose. I still drive as I always have and have not noticed any change. They drive great.......
These tires are budget friendly, but don't feel it at all. Great dry traction and are great in heavy rain smooth driving experience I have only put 3,000 miles on them thus far but no complaints at all so far in my experience with them. Driving style is spirited.
