Nexen CP662 Tire Review & Rating
The Nexen CP662 all-season tire is designed to provide solid year round traction and handling to go along with a comfortable ride. Built for drivers of sport coupes and sedans, the CP662 is also very easy on the wallet when it comes to cost.
An all-season tread compound and symmetric tread pattern combine to enhance dry and wet traction. Wider shoulder tread blocks and the straight center rib block increase cornering grip and add high speed stability, while enhancing steering response. The tire’s lateral and rounded groove design work together in reducing braking distance and making for a more quiet ride, which is an area mentioned in frequent driver reviews on the tire.
Four wide circumferential grooves and lateral grooves channel away water on wet road surfaces for enhanced wet traction. It also reduces hydroplane risks and adds more confidence when driving in rougher weather conditions.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belted construction with a polyester cord body for added strength and durability. The CP662 carries a 440 UTQG rating. Nexen offers sizes ranging from 15 to 18 inches, and speed ratings up to a V on this model.

- Winter handling
The CP662 has been around for a few years now and provides pretty good overall performance for the low price. It works well on today’s smaller coupes and sedans that are used as everyday drivers. Cornering grip is better than many budget tires, and the steering response provides good feel.
As an all-season tire you can expect decent light snow drivability, but deeper snow and ice can be an issue. Tread life could be a bit better, but when you factor in the budget price on this tire it is not that bad.
Overall, if you are looking for a cheap tire to get you to and from work every day to go along with a bit of extra performance when you feel like pushing the limits, the CP662 is not a bad choice.
