Latest Nankang AS2 Reviews

Given 60% while driving a Ford Focus ST 225 (2003 2007) (225/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 100 spirited miles
Incredibly unstable due to the large water channels in the threads - making the rubber inbetween quite thin/small, and it flex. Very noticeable in high speed atleast and during hard braking, car squirms like a snake. And if road is uneven you have to countersteer for each lean the car makes. (by a small amount of course but noticeable)
Maybe not so noticeable on cars that already have this character due to soft suspension and high profiled tyres etc.

Given 89% while driving a Ford Mondeo Titanium X (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 16,000 average miles
Bought these at half the price of the main brands (my tyre size was coming in around £200 each for most makes).
To be honest, I've notice no difference in handling, grip or stopping ability at all compared to the 2 previous big brands I had.
And so far they've lasted twice as long on the front compared to the last pair.
Noise levels not bad either.
