Does anyone have any experience with these tires? Pros/Cons? Particularly the 275\60R20 size.

Much Appreciated!

I don't have experience with those nexen tires. But have used some that were awful and had a known defect. Nexen gave lip service and would no stand behind them.
So Nexen is a tire company I would not use anything of theirs.

I'll echo the above avoidance of Nexen tires. They came on a pickup I bought. Scary even on dry pavement. Snow? Rain? I had better luck with my Trans Am.

Ixnay on the Nexen.
Had a set on a used pickup I bought.
Good enough I guess to get to a place to buy new tires.
beanoil: Tough under heat, real dirty afterwards.

I've had two sets on a Dodge Avenger and was happy. A good low priced tire. Ed

I have a set of Roadian HP the dealer put on my (new to me truck) after I told them the tires they had on the vehicle were not satisfactory.

They seem to be a satisfactory tire-good grip when wet and they are quiet. And with an "XL" rating (I told the dealer to get a tire with this rating) there is no sidewall (squirm) movement when towing my trailer.

The truck is 4WD and with the snow last season they did perform well.
