same as anything you get what you pay for, but ive had them in the past and they are ok if you just need rubber on your wheels, but wouldn't fit them to a powerful car.

I don't think Type Rs would come with some nangkhuhmo tyres on...

I think bridgestone re040 are standard on the type rs...

Nankangs sadly have to live with the reputation left by their first tyre, the NS-1, which really was a ditchfinder extraordinaire. However, the current NS-2 is a (relatively) much better tyre by all accounts, and probably is no better or worse than any other budget tyre.

I always put on premium tyres.

I have had nankangs (ditch finders ) on one car which came with them. After 1 mile of picking up car in wet. I drove to nearest tyre centre and put some proper boots on.

had these on my E46 M3, a dealer put them on the front.

Don't know what Nankang they where, but there were the worst tyre i have ever had.

The front of the M3 would break away really easy on a corner or rounderbout.

I blamed my wife for curbing my wheels, but she said she didn't, then i went for a hard drive and noticed the rim protector coming off in lumps, This is where the tyre was tucking under when going hard in a corner. this in turn also damaged the rims. - Yes they were at the correct pressure. (225/35/19)

wife thought they were fine for driving to work and back but if you are a bit heavy footed don't bother as others said ditch finders.
