Nexen N7000 Tire Review & Rating

The ultra-high performance Nexen N7000 features advanced tire technology that is designed to increase traction and overall performance in a variety of year-round conditions. Built for drivers of high performance sport coupes and sedans, the N7000 is also value priced for those on a tighter budget.

A silica tread compound combines with the tire’s kerf design to maximize traction and handling on wet road surfaces. There’s also four circumferential grooves that expel water away from the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning.

Nexen N7000 Tire Review

The rigid shoulder block design on this Nexen model is created to enhance steering response and add more cornering grip, an area this tire does fairly well. A continuous center rib further increases stability at higher speeds.

Inside the tire are two steel belts with a polyester cord body that provide added strength and durability. The N7000 is available in a wide variety of 16-24 inch sizes, and can be found with a V, W or Y-speed rating.


  • Very good dry and wet traction
  • Cornering grip
  • Treadlife


  • Poor winter handling

Overall Thoughts

The Nexen N7000 ranks in the middle of the ultra-high performance all-season class. We like how the tire handles and corners on both dry and wet pavement. Steering is quick and responsive, while braking is about average among UHP tires.

When it comes to traction in winter road conditions, forget about it. Although advertised as an AS tire, it lacks the grip to handle anything other than a light dusting of snow. As to ride comfort, the N7000 is actually fairly comfortable for a tire like this. Road noise is not excessive as well.

There is no mileage warranty on this tire, but we’ve found the treadlife is better than you might expect, especially with its lower price point. Overall, while you won’t mistake this model for the likes of a Michelin Pilot Sport AS3 or Continental DWS among others, it does offer more than adequate performance for the money.
