Nexen CP661 Tire Review & Rating

Engineered for suburban and city driving, the Nexen CP661 is a budget tire that doesn’t forfeit any quality in performance. Created to be used all year round, the four straight wide circumferential groves that can be found on the tire provide solid traction and a consistent grip on dry road surfaces. They also help in dispelling water for enhanced wet traction as well.

An upgraded shoulder block design and center rib offer increased cornering and more reliable and responsive steering. With lateral grooves to help combat road noise and keep the decibel count a minimum, the CP661 is more than suited to urban journeys.

Nexen CP661 Tire Review

With good tread life and reasonable tread wear for their price it is hard to beat these tires for overall driving and consistent performance.

While they don’t come with a warranty they will provide a surprising lifespan for what they cost and can be found in 13 – 16 inches.


  • Smooth and comfortable drive
  • Good traction in dry and wet conditions
  • Can handle some snow


  • No tread life warranty

Overall Thoughts

For passenger cars that need a decent around town or shorter highway trips, the CP661 is a nice budget-minded option.

The traction, handling and dry and wet weather grip are all above what you would expect to get for the price, and if your driving habits have you commuting and sitting in traffic then these offer a comfortable way to make it a little more bearable.

While they are missing a tread life warranty they should last the better part of 50k miles with reasonable driving habits. Overall, while not a top level tire by any stretch, the CP661 does fill a need for those looking to save good money on a set of new tires.
