The Nankang Rubber Tire company was founded in Taiwan in 1959, with tire production in China starting around 2003. The company is more advanced than many of the other Asian brands, having earned Ford Motor Company's Q1 quality certification in 1987. We feel the brand is a step above many of the small tire companies that have popped up over the past 10-20 years.
Nankang are competitively priced such that they may be cheaper than better known brands such as Falken and Kumho, while having decent consumer reviews. Nankang also manufactures tires under different brands, such as Milestar and Geostar.
This tire is also known as the Noble Sport. Many reviewers love the handling, but based on the number of 1- and 2-star reviews, there seem to be some issues with quality control.

The Nankang CX668 tires have excellent reviews. The CX668 comes in smaller sizes, from 12-15 inches with high aspect ratios (tall sidewalls). From reading through the reviews, these fill a niche for trailer tires, motorcycle "darksiders", classic cars like MG, as well as smaller cars like the Geo Metro and Ford Festiva.Read Nankang CX668 reviews and check prices at Amazon.com Technical Specs on the CX668
