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, W and Y speed ratings, the NS-2 is designed for all types of coupes, sedans and even sporty crossovers.

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.

The computer designed V-shaped grooves, along with the circumferential grooves, further add traction on wet pavement, while also improving hydroplane resistance. Added sipes around the shoulders of the tire also increase traction and help with extending the tread wear.

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 is a plus for this tire and something mentioned in many reviews from other drivers.

Nankang offers a wide range of 14-24 inch sizes, and this model is also M+S rated for performance in all types of weather conditions. There’s also either a 30K mile or 40K mile tread warranty on the NS-2 depending on the tires speed rating.

Pros

  • 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

Cons

  • Treadlife could be a bit longer

Overall Thoughts

We were very surprised with the high performance from these tires. With speed ratings up to a Y and the aggressive directional tread pattern, this tire offers high-performance traction and cornering grip that is comparable to models from some of the bigger name tire makers. No, it’s not a Michelin Super Sport or anywhere close to it, but for a cheaper tire it does deliver decent all-around performance.

Nankang has changed their quality standards over the years and it now shows. If a high performance summer tire at a lower price is what you are looking for, this NS II is not a bad choice.
