Nankang SP-7 Performance X/P Tire Review & Rating

Developed for drivers of SUV’s, crossovers and light sport pickups, the Nankang SP-7 Performance X/P is built for those looking for higher performance at a value price.

The symmetrical tread design features a special dry zone and a wider contact patch for enhanced handling and cornering abilities on dry road surfaces. It also reduces braking distance and provides additional stability. This model also comes in either an H, V or W-speed rating for added performance at higher speeds.

Angled tread blocks and multiple sipes around the tread provide improved handling and grip in wet road conditions. Dual circumferential grooves evacuate water from under the tread and provide for added hydroplane resistance.

The tread compound Nankang uses is designed to not only reduce road noise, but to also lower the rolling resistance of the tire, which results in improved fuel efficiency. Sizes are available ranging from 15-24 inches, and Nankang includes a 40K mile tread warranty as well.


  • Dry and wet surface traction is very good
  • Excellent cornering grip
  • Steering response is above average
  • Very low price and good treadlife makes this tire a solid value for the money


  • Would like to see a little less road noise

Overall Thoughts

The SP-7 from Nankang offers very good performance on either dry or wet roads. Higher speed cornering is fun on this tire, and the steering response is quick. Road noise is a little more pronounced, but nothing that makes it overly annoying.

Ride comfort is fine. What really makes this a nice value is the cheaper price. Similar models from Goodyear, Michelin and other big name tire brands would cost nearly twice as much as this tire, which is why we say it provides solid value for the money.

  1. These Nankang SP7 tires have been a headache since I’ve had them. Ever since I replaced my Michelin with the Nankang tires I’ve rebalanced them twice due to road noise and speeds of 65+ I get wheel shaking. I thought maybe my rotors were bad but that is not the case. The only thing left is that I may indeed have defective tires. It’s a good thing that the didn’t cost me much. Never again will I waist any money towards this brand ever again. Usually I don’t leave reviews but not enjoying driving my vehicle really sucks.
