Was at the Coast saw a gorgeous estate blue with silver trim on front on private plate but must have been fairly new
Anyway noticed it was running on nexon? Scrimping ?

I think some "Budget " tyres do get good reviews but it does bemuse me why some people max out on a good car/modifications and then for the sakes of saving a few pounds put on some low rated tyres.

People come out with the old - "I drive sensibly"/"I don't push the car" line but that doesn't help when you need to pull an emergency stop when someone has cut in front of you in the wet.

My wife also drives my car and I take the opinion that if spending a few pounds prevents an accident then its money well spent.

From what I have seen Nexen are rated as a Mid - Range / Medium brand.

A better insight may come from comparing the Treadwear - Traction - Temperature ratings of brands.
