The side walls always crack causing the need for changing tyres before 1/2 the thread is worn.
I place the Nexen tyres in value for money mid-range tyre category. Have had them on my 07 Astra 1.9 16v diesel under normal driving conditions these are fantastic tyres never let go on me driving 'normally' rain or shine. I Highly recommend Nexen along ,both tyres have served me well front and rear . Have used Nexen N3000 and N6000 tyres either are great
