Nexen Roadian HT SUV Tire Review & Rating

As a highway performance tire, the Roadian HT SUV from Nexen features an attractive tread design, solid all-season traction and a more quiet ride to go with its lower price point. Built for pickups, larger crossovers, SUV’s and vans, the HT SUV is available in a wide range of 15-18 inch sizes.

An all-season compound sports a wider tread channel design with multiple slots for increased traction and grip on all types of road surfaces, including some light off-road terrains. While not a dedicated off road tire by any means, it does deliver a more than adequate job in grass, gravel and dirt.

Nexen Roadian HT SUV Tire Review

The concaved shoulders maximize cornering while a 5 random pitch tread design works to reduce road noise. Braking and acceleration performance is very good on dry roads with the HT SUV. On wet streets and highways the tire’s four circumferential grooves evacuate water from under the tire and reduce hydroplane risks.

Inside the tire you will find two steel belts with a polyester cord body for added strength and durability, as well as more even treadwear and a more comfortable ride quality. This Nexen model also features a 520 UTQG rating.


  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent braking on dry roads
  • Good value for a low priced SUV highway tire


  • Winter traction could be better
  • Tread life for some

Overall Thoughts

It’s easy to overlook the Nexen Roadian HT SUV among the many choices in highway tires for your SUV or pickup, but this model provides pretty decent performance for a much lower cost than many competitors.

Traction and handling are very good on dry or wet surfaces, and ride comfort is better than average. Winter weather driving could be improved on, and tread life is not as good as we would like to see, but for the money this tire makes a nice option.
