Nexen tires practice constant improvement and restructuring to sustain growth and anticipate market demand. For example, they closed their BIAS tire plant in 2003 due to low revenues and invested instead in the opening and operation of a second manufacturing plant. By 2004, they were introducing Ultra High Performance tires and developing High Performance SUV tires. Best Quality and Best Driving... a passion for the best creates tomorrow. Nexen is a global company, whose foremost technology opens the road to the next generation.
Originally established in 1942 as Heung-A Tire, Nexen Tire has over 60 years of tradition as a respected leader in the tire industry. Acknowledged as Korea's first tire company, they first began car tire production in 1956. Over 30 years later, in 1985, the company was expanded through the construction of a radial tire factory in Yangsan, Korea. Through an alliance six years later with a Japanese company, OHTSU Tire & Rubber, they furthered technological know-how and manufacturing capabilities. In an effort to reflect company's dedication to quality and continued leadership, they changed the company name in 2000 from Woosung Tire to Nexen Tire Corporation. The name Nexen is a combination of two future-oriented words; next and century. That same year also saw Nexen Tire listed on the KOSPI 200 Index future market.

So far I'm impressed with the added grip and connection I feel to the road with these tires. They look great, feel responsive as hell. I haven't hit any weather with them yet, though. I'm not sure if this is the fault of the wheel or the tire, but when I ordered these with my new rims, also from CARiD, I had all the faith in the world that they would fit, or CARiD wouldn't sell them to me. Yes, they do fit, however the tire isn't wide enough to protect the rim, so the first time I clip a curb it's going to be good by rim. Be warned! If I were you, I would call in to CARiD to make sure that this kind of thing doesn't happen to you.
I got the rims & tires in a package. Everything was there, lug nuts, balanced & ready. They were even labeled as to where they go. Nobody could go wrong. Got them on time and got e-mails from ups. Customer service was great when I placed the order & got everything right. I will be ordering more soon.
If you want beautiful tires, cheap and good grip go for the Nexen N3000. Can't be wrong. Is not the best tires you can buy, but is very reasonable all around tire, price, quality, grip. I live in the Caribbean, so I don't know anything about snow, but I see a lot of rain. No matter what tire you're using, take it easy on wet street!
I found these tires combined with the Maxim Wheels performed quite well. Had them on my vehicle for two days, and made a short trip from Savannah to Columbia, SC on State Hwy, which provides various driving conditions, and it rained as well. These tires performed quite well, I highly recommend them as a Pkg if you are looking to combine.
Great tires and amazingly good price! CARiD mounted and balanced these tires on a set of gold XXR530 for me For Free! Only had to bolt them on when I got them!
