Hi all,

I've got to replace my tyres as I've had a blow-out on one and I want them all to be the same and brand new since the ones on there were from when I bought the car.

I've been recommended Nexuns as a cheaper version of Goodyear Eagle F1's.

Very similar tread and same load ratings etc..

I'd never heard of them so I wondered if any of you can give your opinions on these brand of tyres?

NEXEN I think not NEXUN...

Similar to the Eagle F1 would be the N3000?

I have no clue about 'em but some things in life often verify: u get what u pay for. ;)

Dan (Madenglishman) had Nexen's on his GTR. He christened them Kevlars! They had average grip in the dry and no grip in the wet. Look Nexen up in a dictionary...........it should say 'cheap and nasty' next to it:)

I would not do it, you'd have more grip driving on the rims!

We've had them on our old gtst and they were really bad, then I had them on my MR2T, as soon as it came on boost they'd just spin up. They are a truely awful tyre!

Ok thanks for the feedback guys, looks like I'll avoid the Nexens.

What about any of the following;

bridgstone re050
continental sport contact 2
michelin sports

yes...and you will need lots of money

as i have said earlier, if you can get hankook k104 or k105's you wont go far wrong

and they will be half of the above tyres prices, but the same grip :blahblah:

let me know what size you want, i may be able to help

Yep I'll second the recommendation for Hankooks. I have tried Dunlops, Falkens, Bridgestones and Toyos and rate the Hankooks as better than everything else I've tried bar the Bridgestones (which they are on par with) but at over a 60% cheaper compared to the Bridgestones its a no brainer.

The Falkens are a very narrow tyre for a given size. My 9.5j rims protruded further than the rim protector with Falken 451s and 452s (275/30s) resulting in very easily marked rims.
