Nankang Ultra Sport NS-II Tire Review & Rating

For those looking for a high performance summer tire at a budget friendly price, the Nankang Ultra Sport NS-II was built with you in mind. Featuring H, V and Z speed ratings, the NS-2 is designed for all types of sport coupes and sedans.

The high performance tread compound and directional tread pattern are made to provide enhanced grip and stability on dry road surfaces. Dual circumferential grooves add increased lateral traction and cornering power.

Ultra Sport NS-II from Nankang Tires

Computer designed V-shaped grooves add wet pavement traction and handling, while also improving hydroplane resistance. Added sipes around the shoulders of the tire also increase traction as well as give the tire longer treadwear.

A variable width tread design and Nankang’s unique two-in-one pitches combine to reduce outside road noise and improve overall ride quality. This model is also M+S rated for performance in all types of conditions.


  • Traction and handling on dry or wet pavement is above average
  • Steering response and control are quick
  • Very good cornering performance
  • Excellent value for the money


  • No mileage treadlife warranty

Overall Thoughts

We were very surprised with the high performance from these tires. With speed ratings up to a Z and the aggressive directional tread pattern, this tire offers performance traction and cornering grip that is comparable to models from some of the bigger name tire makers.

Better yet, all of this comes at a fraction of the price you would pay per tire. Nankang has changed their quality standards over the years and it now shows. If a high performance tire at a cheap price is what you are looking for, this NS II is a very good choice.
