According to Nankang's mission statement, what is most important for the company is meeting customer expectations. The brand's motto is "honesty, pragmatism and innovation". During production, emphasis is placed on soundness and durability, while maintaining performance on the road.

Nankang is a Taiwanese company with over 50 years of experience, and learnt about tyre manufacturing from the best — the Japanese. The R&D department keeps up with the times and offers modern tyres at very attractive prices (the brand is considered to be in the economy market segment).

Many European drivers have already opted for the Nankang brand of tyres. This is a very good option for those who are looking for new tyres, but who do not want the purchase to break the household budget. Nankang offers products including tyres for passenger cars, SUVs, light delivery vans, motorcycles and aircraft.

Interesting facts:

Sonar tyres and Star Performer tyres are among the tyres offered by the Nankang brand.

Although 1959 is considered to be the date when the brand launched, the company's origins date back to 1940, when the first company was set up by the future founders of Nankang.

In addition to the civilian market, Nankang is also active on the military market — it manufactures tyres for military aircraft and combat vehicles.

Nankang tyres are produced at two factories: The first, which dates back to the company's inception, is located in Taiwan, while the second is located in mainland China, in Zhangjiagang.

In 1963, Nankang appeared on the Taiwan Stock Exchange; in 1974, it developed radial tyres for passenger cars, and ones for lorries and buses in 1980; in 1999, it started marketing low-profile Nankang tyres, high-performance tyres in 2001, tyres for SUVs in 2003 and 2008 saw the introduction of a fuel-economy model (Eco-1).

    Nankang Snow Viva 2

    I am using Nankng Snow Viva 2 for second season. I have bought them for a very decent price and I was surprised how good winter tyres are they. I have used these rubbers in every single winter weather conditions – high or fresh snow, slush or rain. They have the best grip on the dry surface, the worst performance on the wet, but this is completely normal for each winter tyre (we all know that winter tyres doesn't like too much rain). On these tyres I have driven about 8 000 miles. I have used them in the mountains, on the roads, where trucks need were not able to drive and my Nankangs were able to deal with every single hill – up and down. I really recommend these tyres. I have just ordered More > the same model but for a different size – big difference in size actually. I am very curious if they will be as good as the previous one. Tyres have a little bit different tread pattern. All in all – we will see during this winter. Unfortunately if you are driving on the asphalt – the tread war is much quicker. I have also ordered summer Nankang tyres for the same car and I hope they will be better than Vredestain – after year and a half I have two bulges on the sidewall.

    Nankang Snow Viva 2

    I am using Nankang Snow Viva 2 for a half a year now. During the whole winter, spring and even now during the summer. I have driven o them about 5 000 miles and I am very fond of them. Before I had Michelins. After the change, the big difference is in noise level. Nankangs are very quiet. The trad pattern look very good. During the trip in the mountains there was no problem with driving up on the hills, starting or braking. I have the rule, that I do not change the tyres for the summer season and whole year round I am using winter tyres. I didn't notice a big tread ware. I am a calm driver. I will buy the same tyres to my other car. I fully recommend them to every day use. We will see ho More > they will deal in a next couple of years.

    Nankang AS 1

    I have an AUDI A8 - so far I have used Italian tyres - in my opinion it these once are one of the best tyres on the market, but they wear out very quickly and are rather expensive, but it is the behavior of a good tyre. Nankang AS 1 tyres are amazing, they are very good on the ground (I tested them on curves in the mountains and are surprisingly quiet, even compared to previous tyres). As for the limits of adhesion, I intend to look at it more carefully. When it comes to tyre wear, it is too early to pronounce opinions on this subject. Overall, I am very happy and I intend to buy them next time. The price is very important to me as well as the silence in the car! I am happy and I recommend More > the Nankang AS 1 tyre to everyone!

    Nankang NS 2

    It is quite hard to evaluate this tyre model. Fantastic dry grip and even better on wet asphalt but the thing is that it is true only for the first 20k miles roughly. After that is gets lower aquaplaning resistance and can be a bit too noisy for some drivers in my opinion. The funny story is that I was driving for some longer time with a small nail in the tread without losing the pressure. It was discovered by a mechanic finally. So, durability seems to be more than fine though. Price is really attractive and if someone does not care about the noise or aquaplaning it is the right product. More >
