    What "model" Nankangs? I guess NOT the N803s which I think are no longer produced.

    All the 135-15's are just a little expensive now.
    30 years ago, you could get one for about 30 dollars.

    Thats not expensive. Try buying Michelin XZX's in that size.

    I paid around $80.00 for my nanking raid tyres 3 years ago, i would be happy to pay 99 now, you might save 5 or 10 bucks shopping around, but is it worth the time and effort ?

    I bought mine recently and have been very happy with them..
    all in all not a bad price given the price of the Michelin

    Default Nankang CX-668

    135x15

    Looks different to the old Nankang , different tyre mould altogether , any reports on it ???
    My guess is that its uprated , better tyre , 99 $ Bob Jane ,

    $8 fitted and balanced at Tyrepower Phillip ,

    I cant test tyres , wouldnt know what to do , If they stay up they are good to me

    I think the CX 668 is a better highway tread pattern than the N 804, though I would prefer the latter as a Raid tyre (more so because it matches the existing tyres).

    There is no point in testing 2CV tyres, as there is little choice in what is available. When you can shoe the whole car for about the same price as one upmarket tyre for a C5, enjoy!
