Top 3 Nexen N Fera SU1 Reviews

Given 92% while driving a Audi A6 3.0 TFSI quattro (255/40 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
I was quite suspicious of the Nexens before buying, but the seller did a good job convincing me. I had bought several tires from him before so I trusted his opinion. Switched from Michelin Pilot Sport 2 to these.

A few thousand km after I'm really happy with them. Quieter than the PS2, better dry and wet grip. Perhaps the progressiveness is a bit worse than on the PS2, but it is hard to estimate well as it would need a track day, too scary to find the limit in normal traffic!

These tyres come with 7mm tread. They are excellent until theyre down to 5mm. Then they become death traps. I noticed most good reviews on here are after relatively short mileage. Dont risk it.

Given 95% while driving a BMW 318 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 1 easy going miles
I purchased the Next SU1 tyres having come from Bridgestone Performance Tyres which grip really well, but were considered noisy.

I am driving a BMW 3 Series on 18 Inch Alloys and once I swapped the Bridgestone for the Nexen Tyres I immediately could feel a significant difference in comfort and a reduction in noise.

I am incredibly impressed by the Nexen Tyres as I had never heard of the brand before, but once the Tyre Mechanic convinced me that it was of good quality and manufactured in Korea, I decided to try.

The Nexen Tyres are much more comfortable on the road, and glides over the road and uneven surfaces much better than my previous Bridgestone Potenzas. The Nexens are also much more quieter. Considering that they are also significantly cheaper than the popular brands, I will be sticking to Nexens from now on and swear by them for a good daily driver car's tyres! I am not sure of the performance of them as i do not drive my car hard.

Four members of our family have bought this tyre and all have experienced a side wall complete blow out whilst the tyres have a lot of tread left on them.

Given 80% while driving a Audi 2.0tdi 140 sline sportback (255/35 R19) on mostly motorways for 20,000 average miles
Got these on my A4 2.0 TDI. Mostly highway miles, daily driver. After 35K kilometers there is 2.5mm and 2.0mm left on fronts, Around 6 on rear. Decided to replace them with Nexen SU'4. Was expecting a little less wear but it is not too bad also considering the lower price. I like how quiet they are but provide plenty grip in wet & dry even after all these miles. I was expecting poor performance at lower mm's but the performance decrease is very limited. Have had Vredestein Ultrac Vorti before which lasted longer and are more suitable for a sporty style of driving but were quite noisy and had tears in inner walls after 40k kilometers.. The NEXEN's are a very good alternative for A-brand tyres if you have a non-sporty driving style.

Given 66% while driving a BMW F11 520d (245/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 6,200 spirited miles
Dry Grip: the grip level is not really hight, especially in braking. Wet Grip: feels safe on wet. Easy to control with an predictable behavior. Road feedback: you can notice quite early, wenn the tire loses grip. Street conditions are also good noticeable in the steering wheel. Handling: The behavior of the tire is very predictable. It is signalizing early if it loses grip. The front and rear is very balanced on my car (weight distribution f/r/ ~47/53) and the tyre handles very good with it. Especially in the wet. But the overall grip level is not on the level of an PS4. Wear: Im driving the tyre for 6 month and 10000km. Often i take curves hard and one time i was driving on fast mountain roads. So i wonder how slowly the tyres are wearing. Comfort: could be a little bit quieter for a touring tyre and a little bit less bumpy. But in total, you can live with it fairly well. Buy again: If you want a real UHP tyre and can spend a little bit more money, this is not the right tyre for you. If you will safe money and want a slowly wearing touring tyre which is good in the wet, this is the right tyre for you.

Tyres came together with Kia Cerato in Singapore. When it is new the grip is awesome. Now nearing 40,000KM the dry grip has dropped. The wet grip is very good. No aquaplanning at all even at 40K KM. Noise can be a issue when driving above 100km/hr. It's a pity Nexen stop producing this good tyre. At 40k KM i have about half of the thread left which is pretty good considered i drove mainly in city.

Given 94% while driving a BMW 328i (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
i just fitted my front tyres with NEXEN N'FERA SU1. first difference compared to the useless DAYTON DT30, the grip for the front is just tremendous. on DT30, when i push my car for a 60kmh fast corner entry, it just understeer and shoots for the rails. But with the N'FERA, it changed it all...turn in entry same corner now, 80kmh! and does not understeer!! it just grips and say "FUCK OFF!" to that corner. Road noise is way quieter than the DT30 when new. also the N'FERA really shows its quality of a performance tyre.

I drove on Nexen Nfera SU1 tyres on a very twisty racing circuit in my stock car (a stock Dacia Lodgy with 115hp), ya there weren't much horsepower but I can tell you, on dry tarmac these tyres had very good grip !

Given 69% while driving a Mazda Mazda6 Sedan 175 (225/45 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 23,000 average miles
dry grip was really good and noise level is fairly low on comparison with Bridgestone Turanza 005 that came with the Mazda 6 Sport 175. Bit disappointed on wet condition, braking was OK but during high torque start the wheel spin was not unavoidable and even during dry condition during half way through its life time the wheel spin started to occur during launches. Another disappointment was tread life, I am very smooth driver in-spite off my above comments I rarely do those launch type of starts otherwise most of my driving is cursing and accelerating and braking fairly smooth. But the tire reached its 1.6mm limit around 23000 miles. Will not buy these tires again, will try some other brand and see how it works! Thanks for reading!
