About the Producer

Nankang is widely renowned for its ability to manufacture a tire that is affordable without compromising on stability. The Nankang brand has grown since its inception providing customers with exception products that maintain quality and consistency. Founded in Taiwan in 1940, the company has grown to encompass nearly every region in the world with a growing customer base for its affordable tires. One of the company’s most notable products is the Nankang Noble Sport NS-20 All Season Radial Tire Reviews. Let’s find out if it is as good as the others in its class.


The Nankang Noble Sport NS-20 All Season Radial Tire Reviews comes with numerous highly useful features. Let’s look at each aspect of the tire and how it performs under consistent testing.

1. Traction

The NS-20’s silica-enhanced all-season tread compound gives the tire good traction. Dry traction is great and breaking is stable, as well as straight line tracking even at high speeds. The 4 wide circumferential grooves as well as its tread block slipping design make it ideal for wet grip at normal speed. It is a tire that performs well in most weather conditions.

2. Steering

The tire’s dry tread zone enhances dry cornering to make the NS-20 one of the best in cornering grip as compared to other tires in its price range. Aided by the continuous center rib, steering is also quite responsive. Drivers will find that even at above normal speeds the tires respond quite well. With no risk of hydroplaning, the driver’s confidence increases with every mile driven.

3. Extreme Weather Handling

It performs quite well in light snow as is to be expected since its marketed as an all-season tire. The grip in winter is good and it grips and handles very well in light snow. But as expected for a high-performance tire, it was less than satisfactory in deep snow and ice. It is as such a good tire to have under wet and light-snowy conditions but not deep snow.

4. Ride Comfort

As compared to some of the other similar tires within its price range, the NS-20 offers a smooth highway ride. And when tested on other road surfaces, there was generally less road noise as compared to others. It manages to absorb the shock and vibrations without any issues.

5. Durability- Tread Life

For its price, many don’t expect this product to have a considerable tread life. At the very most, you may get up to 50,000 miles before you begin to see a few tread wear issues. Some drives report issues at about 30,000 to 40,000 miles. It can however be noted that a tread life of 40,000 miles is adequate for most drivers and tread wear will depend on other factors that may have nothing to do with the product’s manufacturing standards.

The Nankang Noble Sport NS-20 All Season Radial Tire Reviews also comes with a steel belted construction that provides added strength and durability. Nankang also offers drivers a wide range of sizes (15-22 inches) with either a H, V, W or Y speed rating.

6. Warranty

Most providers will offer a limited warranty with every NS-20 you purchase. There is a 30,000 to 40,000-mile warranty. There is also a uniformity warranty for the first 10% of tread wear that covers the materials and workmanship to the final 2/32 inch of depth.


What I Like

  • The dry and wet traction is very good.
  • Ride is comfortable with very little road noise
  • Low Price
  • Responsive to steering
  • Good Warranty


What I Don’t Like

  • Tread life could be better enhanced
  • Traction in light snow could be improved


My Recommendation

While the NS-20 can be improved, it does have a few things that I would highly recommend. The lower price is an advantage for anyone especially since quality isn’t compromised. With a tread life of up to 40,000 miles, the Nankang NS-20 is a bargain that delivers since the performance is far better than would be expected. It handles nearly perfectly in all conditions and offers a stable, comfortable ride for the average driver.

While other models may offer better traction in snow or better cornering, you may have to pay more than the NS-20 will ask of you.



The Nankang Noble Sport NS-20 All Season Radial Tire Reviews, offering high quality value and performance at an affordable price. It makes a good investment for anyone on a budget while not compromising safety and performance. And at that price, the 40,000-mile tread life is not too bad either.
