Nankang SP-9 Cross Sport Tire Reviews
(Based on 26 Reviews)
Will find out about winter in 7 month. Tire are great for the PRICE. Would buy them again.
These tires are really nice. They were the only option for my stock tire size since, they don't really make 14 inch tires anymore for a 1995 Infiniti G20. The price was really worth it too, since I have my own tire machine it was a an easy decision. . Thank you for making these available to a market that is unavailable. I would have had to buy new tires and wheels to use this car. For less than 200.00 I was back on the road with Michelen comparable tires. Thank you Simply Tire.
Haven't driven on ice/snow and only put on about 900 miles so far but the turning, stopping, accelerating and general traction on dry/wet pavement is better than how my previous Michelins did when they were new on my 2014 Explorer (20"). It feels like it's softer and glides better with almost no noise except the normal high pitch you hear at highway speeds but even thats miniscule. I got a set of 4 for $365 after $50 newbie discount and free shipping that only took 3 days to a central Texas little town. I recently purchased Nankang NS25's for my Fusion (17's) that got to my mechanic the next day! There's nothing I don't like about SimpleTire.com. The Nankang value is unbeatable and they have Fords' Q1 standards giving it the quality mark I like.
I replaced my Camry' Yokohama AVID Touring tires with Nankang SP-9 Cross Sport tires. At first I was a little leery, but to my surprise, this set of tires has done very well in AZ's latest, rain and snow conditions. As for the ride, at first when I applied above 40lbs of air, the ride was stiff, but when I brought the psi to 35lbs psi, it made a big difference and the ride is now smooth : >. Therefore, price/performance wise, I highly recommend this tires, and, I also recommend buying the from SIMPLETIRE, excellent price and fast delivery.
These tires seem to be great. They have a quiet ride and for the price, are a great buy. They are too new to accurately rate them, but so far they seem great.
TERRIBLE TIRE. I didn't know tires could be this awful. After putting these tires on my car, i legitimately thought i had a broken sway bar or something. The sidewall flex is unbelievable even at slow speeds. I ran the 225-60-15 and I will cheap out on tires again because of this tire. I wouldn't put them on my Mustang again even i f they were free!
I will never buy Nankang tires again. These went on my wife's 2016 Kia Sorrento less than one year ago. Granted she is hard on equipment, but these tires just evaporated. Got about 40K out of the OE Hankook's, but at 18K on these they are no longer safe for the North East winters. Even if it was summer they would, at best, have 3 or 4K left in them. Tires were rotated at every oil change, and they wore so quickly I checked alignment and wheel balance 2 times so far. You get what you pay for with these turds. I doubt they will even make a good tire swing for my daughter. Went back to the Hankooks, but I was tempted to try the Kumho's as I have had over sized Kumho's on my lifted XJ for quite some time and they have exceeded all expectations.
Very good tire for the price. Used on my 2014 Explorer. Quiet ride, great in wet wreathed. Also bought a set for my Toyota.
2 months driving time on them .... great tires for the price! A tad noisier than some. a bit of squish while cornering hard. Again I say that for the price you wont do a lot better
After only a few thousand miles the tires are doing great considering the price. They took only a small weight on each one to balance. Highly recommend for budget conscious purchases.
I live in Texas and have only had these tires for 6,000 miles so I cannot comment on winter or tread life, but so far so good. I did NOT expect these tires to be this good. They were the cheapest 109V 560AA (high speed, and nicely rated) tires available for my car. And they are fabulous. The car rides well at speeds well above 100 mph, and though I never thought at 65 years old that I would ever drive that fast for any period of time again - a recent trip between Houston and Dallas gave me a chance to drive over 100mph for a little over 140 miles. I got into a strange convoy of shiny sports cars (mine is a Ford Explorer, so no sports car believe me!) travelling between 90 and 120mph for most of the trip. I was actually shocked and a little afraid to keep up at first, but after a while I felt really comfortable - and I think the tires had a LOT to do with it. The trip is somewhat hilly, and has some fairly good curves too. After a while I realized that my car, even at 110 miles per hour was driving like a dream. This old car has 170,000 miles on it too... and all I have ever done is change the oil regularly and kept up with the maintenance on brakes, fluids etc. Ford makes a great car in the Explorer, and that may be the reason so many police forces use it too. I also had about 600# of stereo gear in the back, and my wife who would NEVER normally allow me to drive that fast believe me! Don't hesitate if you are thinking about choosing this tire. It's really a decent choice. And I will NEVER buy another tire again - except through SIMPLETIRE~! In fact, as a contractor, I have already purchased 20 tires from SIMPLETIRE. I am very satisfied with every aspect of doing so.
Replaced the original tires on my wife's 2016 Mazda CX-5 with these. The Nankang tires ride a lot smoother than the original tires. Took the CX-5 to Cleveland, Ohio for a Christmas trip and the tires handled all conditions very well. Did not get to test them in snow conditions though. Very happy with these tires and glad I got them from Simple Tire at such a great price. Btw, delivery was very quick and the tires were sent to my local tire shop for installation. I recommend these tires and would buy them again.
Looks and handle good. So far they are great tires. Will see if the tread life is as advertised.
Purchased these tires on the 3rd, they were delivered on the 6th. Winter Storm Diego was predicted to hit us on the 8th. Was able to get them mounted and balanced that day, before it started. We got over 22” of snow overnight. Next day we were able to get out our garage and tear up the roads and glide over roads that hadn’t been cleared from snow, like butter. I felt totally secure in the winter traction of these tires and would highly recommend these tires. Don’t let a name that’s not recognized detur you, do some research like I did, and make an informed decision before assuming that if it has a well known brand name, it has to be the best.
Company provided everything stated in the ad. I would recommend anyone to buy from this company.
Super for the price! tires appear well made as very little weight needed to balance. I look forward to some winter weather for review of wet/snow performance, good looking tread pattern.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

The tires are great for the price. They look good, are quiet, ride smooth. Very pleased with ease of purching, and having sent to installer. Going to buy another set for my car.
Great Tires. Just put them on my 11' F150 stock hieght.....No Issues!!
So far these tires are great. Great stability, previously my car would rock from side to side and noisy. These tires are quiet with great traction.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I recently purchased a set of 4 Nankang SP-9 Cross Sport tires, and installed on a 2014 Chevy Equinox. I was pleasantly surprised with the handling and smooth, quiet ride from these tires. I cannot yet rate the tread life or winter traction, But in view of other aspects of these tires, I'm sure I'll be satisfied.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

VAST improvement over previous tires, IE road noise, ride quality, hope the tread life is as good as the same tire on my truck, ( diff size)By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are a great deal at this price point. My previous set of tires were Bridgestones that performed well. After 6,000 miles I can state; these Nankangs perform just as good as Bridgestones.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
