i'm looking to buy Nexen N3000 tires, they are on ebay, and i want to know if they are any good or not. i couldn't find many reviews about them on the web and i was wondering if anyone had an experience or knows anything about them.

thank you

I have never heard of them either. Are you getting a great deal? If it is just ok then I would look at getting a brand you have heard of. If you want some lower priced tires that are supposed to still perform well, I have only heard good things so far about the new FUZION brand tires which are an off shoot of Bridgestone.

I did a search on google for nexen tires and found them for $53 a tire new. The Fuzions are like $80 online. Just to give you some references, by the way I found very little information about the nexen tires. Check this out though it is a link to nexen's website.

Hope that helps.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

What about the warranty and stuff you get by getting tires local? You are going to have to pay to have those cheap tires mounted and balanced...and what about a flat...and I assume you have a BMW because you like to actually drive. I would pass. In fact, I would drop a gear and floor it...

I thought tires recommended for BMW's were at least $90- 100 minimum?

wait that black circle site sells them for 57 uk, that is close to $100 us a tire. I also looked to see what the speed rating on the tires was but the nexen webpage would not load anymore...nice. Z rated is not the highest rating by the way go to tirerack, the section to learn more about tires, and if i remember correctly W and Y rated are actually higher than Z.

Here I found the link
