I put Nankang SP-9's Cross Sports on my daughters '17 Escape (235/50/18 101V rated XL). Replaced worn out Michelin Lattitude Tour HP ....So far this Nankang is a great tire... especially for the price. Tires have only 1500 miles so far but I just got back driving it to San Diego and back. Quiet, smooth ride. Low rolling resistance. Sidewall not mushy, has good solid feel on straights and gives a confident turn in at speed. Of course I cannot tell if it will get the 50,000 miles warranted by Americas Tire or the tire will stay smooth and quiet as it wears...but at a little over $80 per tire plus the usual stuff (they matched their online dealer including lower certificate price). No driving in rain or snow (will get no snow where she lives)so far..but this tire seems to be a winner. I did a lot of research on Nankang. Been around for 60+ years. Collaborated with Yokohama in the past..Tires are made in Taiwan. Tread is 5 ply 2 polyester, 2 steel, 1 nylon 101 V rated XL load

On a side note other than some inexpensive tires I put on my beater /off road '98 Passport these are trhe first time in nearly 60 years I have bought ties other than top of the line name brand tires.Michelin rerplacement were about $1100 out the door so I searched for a lower cost, safe, smooth, quiet, reasonable wear alternative. I believe I found it in this tire. Time will tell....

My first experience with Nankang was when they came on a trailer I bought. I thought I'm not running these unknown Chinese tire on a trailer...... Last month, 18 years later, one out of the four had a tread separation. Lots and lots of heavy hard towing... I wish they still made the tire I was using, I'd buy Nankang again in a second.

Smart purchase. The positive reviews I read regarding Nankang tires encouraged me to buy one of their brands, Milestar, for my wife's Infiniti. After 6K miles the Milestar MS932's are just fine.
