Nankang Performance X/P FS-1 Tire Review & Rating
The Nankang Performance X/P FS-1 has designed the FS1 to deliver high performance traction, precise handling and a smooth ride. Built for sport truck and SUV owners, the FS-1 sports a wide range of features to go with its attractive tread design.
Angled tread blocks and the tire’s four circumferential grooves ensure that water is always evacuated from the tire. This provides exceptional handling and wet traction, while minimizing the risk of hydroplaning. Solid shoulder blocks further improve performance and enhance cornering on both wet and dry surfaces.
Built for highway driving, a variable pitch sequence lowers overall noise and gives a comfortable overall ride quality. A smooth contact patch further allows the tire to gain traction and grip the road during wet and slick driving conditions.
Two inner steel belts and a polyester cord body strengthen the tire and increases durability, while also adding stability at higher speeds. The Nankang FS-1 carries a UTQG rating of 480 and a V-speed rating.
- Excellent highway traction
- Cornering grip and higher speed performance
- Value for the money
- Tread life
The Nankang Performance X/P FS-1 is a very good tire for drivers looking to add a performance boost to their sport trucks or SUV’s. Traction and performance on this tire is above many others in the same price range, including Yokohama’s Spec X model.
Grip on wet road surfaces is confident until the tire is pushed to its limits. Since this is a high performance summer tire, winter traction and handling is non-existent.
Tread life and durability are rated highly and are accompanied by a 40,000 mile warranty. Comfort levels are rather standard and handling is more than acceptable. Overall, this tire will provide sustainable performance at high speeds and gives the utmost traction at all times.
