Nankang Tires

Anyone used these before?
I saw an ad on craigslist from advance autosports in north van and the wheels come with these, are they fine?
My car's not that powerful so I don't think it really matters since i won't be pushing these tires much...
Neone have friends or personally tried these?

They are nankang ns-1 i believe

seen some reviews online and they're okay,

I believe advance autosports is an RS sponsor? I think the RS username was SORA'T
I bought a set of kumho tires off him for a great price back in March. He even delivered them to me from North Van

Do a search for Nankang tire reviews on here or google. You're bound to get an idea of what theyre like.
There will always be people that will love'em, others will hate them..

yea cake I love mine because they stretch really well and the sidewall is strong enough to be stable under stretch.

As for reviews, I remember when I was doing research on them I hit up one of the busier tire sites online forget which one, and it got an overall 3.5 stars out of 5 from like thousands of users.

then I went onto some forums and all these stretch guys were raving about the Nankang NS2s and Vredestein Sessantas, those reviews made me go for it.
