Nexen CP671 Tire Review & Rating

Nexen Tires all-season CP671 is built to provide coupe, sedan and minivan owners a tire that will deliver year-round traction with a comfortable ride. Designed mainly as original equipment on vehicles like the Kia Soul, Hyundai Elantra and others, the CP671 is also going to be used as O.E. on the 2014 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger.

An all season tread compound, lateral grooves and straight center rib block give this tire added dry traction and cornering grip, while providing increased steering and stability at higher speeds.

Nexen CP671 Tire Review

Four circumferential grooves enhance wet traction and channel away water from under the tread for a reduced risk of hydroplaning. Nexen’s rapid angle round grooves are designed to reduce road noise, which we discuss more in our overall thoughts on this model.

Inside the tire you’ll find two steel belts for added strength and durability, as well as a polyester cord body. The CP671 carries a 400AA UTQG tread rating and is available in several 15 to 18 inch sizes.


  • Dry and wet traction
  • Steering response
  • Comfortable ride


  • Cornering grip
  • A little road noise

Overall Thoughts

The CP 671 is basically like your average run-of-the-mill tire. It drives well on dry road surfaces and offers responsive steering and pretty good ride comfort. On the other hand, there’s some added road noise to deal with and cornering grip is not as good as we would like to see.

Overall, it’s not a bad all-season tire as far as original equipment goes, and the price is pretty low for those wanting to save money, but if you’re looking to add more performance to your vehicle we would suggest going with something like the Continental TrueContact, Michelin Defender T+H or General Altimax RT43 among others.

  1. I have a lease 2016 Kia Soul the front right tire blew sending me to the right of the road very quickly. I bounced twice off the curve. I was only goes 20 mpr. Because the belt is separated. Michel Tire said all of the tires are separated with only 22000 miles on my car (I drive to work and home only). So I brought 2 tires but they put them on the back because of a law. Now I’m riding around with two front tires that the belts are separated. I am afraid what if one blows and I’m on the expressway??? The dealership said it was my problem! I’m a single mother. I feel like I’m being taking advantage of because I’m a woman! How many miles should you get from Nexen CP671 205/60R16?

  2. 36078 miles on my car and got a 4 rating at the dealership saying I need new tires already.they aren’t a little noisy they are very noisy. The ride qaulity sucks, bounces all over the road.

    1. If you’re bouncing all over the road, it isn’t the tires doing it. You need to check your alignment. I’d say shocks, but not with as little mileage as you have it’s very unlikely to have a failure in that department. Stranger things have happened though.
