Nankang Snow SV-2 is the tyre of a new generation, combining exceptionally responsive steering feel with the smooth and quiet refinement. Even at the high speed, SV-2 provides drivers with the confidence in various weather conditions of winter. A winter tyre for compact and middle-class vehicles: the V-shaped tread design of SV-2 tyres ensure for added security in all driving conditions, thanks to its special lamella technology and silicone mix.

Circumferential V-shaped four-groove design enhances drainage efficiency on the wet road. The enlarged contact area at the void ratio at 32% shortens braking distance on dry/wet road and enhance icy grip. Three-dimensional solid sipe enhances pattern block stiffness, shortens braking distance on dry/wet road and upgrades manoeuvrability & cornering ability on the icy road. Solid groove wall design prevents irregular wear and improves snow manoeuvrability. Unique compound enhances tread stiffness and surface friction to shorten braking distance.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

I had no snow this year so have to leave the impression that they do not perform. This false reading is a function of the survey's unintelligent layout/creation!! These are great tyres on Scottish winter(!) roads and I am still using them in summer without obvious wear. My old van will not see another winter so I will never know about their snow-go! Whatever I drive next will have tyres like these if the price is similar. I don't drive fast but I don't brake much and these are like glue in a corner!

The best tyres for the money!

My local fitter advised the Nankang's as I was initially looking at BF Goodrich as they have "B" wet grip rating but there were none in the country and no expected delivery. The wet ratings are at summer temps which means that winter Nankang's with a "C" wet rating are much better than the summer Potenza's with an "A" wet rating when the temp is below 7degC. I decided to get some winter tyres after getting stuck the previous winter on Potenza's and discovering that trying to fit snow socks to a Fiesta ST when it's stuck in snow is not possible. This year I did not have much snow and the Potenza's would have coped but the car felt very sure footed. There were many mornings when the temp was below 7deg C and the Nankang's performed very well - much more confident than the Potenza's. Tyres gave very good braking and cornering grip, wet and dry. Slightly noisier than the Potentza's but not overly. Kept the tyres on from Nov-April and when they came off they looked like new. On returning to the Potenza's there is a noticeable improvement in grip, but now the temp is 10degC+ so is expected. Can't comment on the economy as most of the journeys are short and traffic dominates the mpg. I will definitely be refitting them for next winter.

Always a bit wary of trying a new tyre, but these tyres are great
