Nexen Roadian A/T Pro RA8 Tire Review & Rating

The Nexen Roadian A/T Pro RA8 all-terrain tire is designed for driving on even the roughest of off-road terrain, while being mild-mannered enough for regular highway use. For drivers who want total freedom-regardless of the weather or where they’re headed-the Roadian A/T Pro RA8 is marketed as a heavy duty all-terrain tire with a focus on dependability, long tread life, and performance.

Crafted with Nexen’s proprietary tread compound, the tread pattern on this model has been molded into a symmetric design with a staggered center rib. Further design elements include dual treadblocks to shovel dirt, mud, and gravel out of the way, micro-grooves, and biting edges to improve traction on wet and snowy roads or difficult terrain.

Additionally, wide shoulder blocks are created to increase handling when driving off road. Despite this long list of design features, this Nexen tire also promises a quiet, smooth ride.

Internally, twin steel belts which are reinforced by dual layers of nylon that help add more strength and durability. A polyester casing aids in ride comfort throughout the speed range on the highway.

The Roadian A/T Pro RA8 is available in various 15-20 inch sizes with LT and non-LT models as well. Nexen offers drivers a 40K mile warranty for LT sizes, and a 50K mile warranty with non-LT sizes.

Pros

  • Good performance in light terrain
  • Dependable wet and dry traction, including use in light snow
  • Ride and noise comfort is not bad
  • Reasonable price

Cons

  • Increase heavy duty all-terrain performance
  • Fuel efficiency could be slightly better

Overall Thoughts

Nexen has really found its way with this latest all-terrain model. You can expect to find some of the same performance characteristics as tires from the bigger names, but at a cost that is likely going to be much less.

The Roadian A/T Pro RA8 is available in a slew of different sizes, so finding one that fits your LT or non-LT requirements shouldn’t prove difficult. Compared to similar tires in its class, this tire brings a lot to the table. It delivers solid performance on or off road, although very rough off-road terrain is not its strong suit. Dirt, gravel, light to moderate mud, grass and other terrain is where it feels at home on.

Like most all-terrain tires, the Roadian RA8 can offer some degree of traction in winter driving conditions-in fact, grip in light snow and ice is likely better than many other A/T tires in a similar price range-but of course this performance cannot match what you get from a dedicated winter tire.

Additionally, fuel efficiency tends to drop with more robust all-terrain tires, so you might notice a slight decrease in fuel economy.

Overall, the Nexen A/T RA8 is a good option that can help get you and your vehicle to wherever you need to go-on or off the road.

They should work fine. Your speedometer will read around 1 mph lower at highway speeds. So if it shows 60 mph, you’ll be going 61-62 mph.
