Nexen N8000 receives high marks in Germany


The Nexen N8000 has been declared "very recommendable" by the German magazine "Autobild Sportcars."

The ultra-high performance tire was highly rated for its quality in a test conducted by the magazine. "Autobild Sportcars," the sister publication to "Autobild," regularly tests UHP performance tires and products, especially sport cars.

In addition to Nexen, seven global brands were tested on both wet and dry surfaces for various performance indicators, including handling, braking and noise. The N8000, thanks to its mix of a short braking distance, side stiffness, quietness and ride comfort, was rated “Very recommendable” -- with a special note on its "exceptional stability on wet roads."

The N8000 was introduced to the United States market in 2009. It also was awarded a prize at the IF Design Awards following its initial launch.

“These test results are testament to Nexen's improved product quality and technological capability,” says Han Min-Hyeon, vice president of research and development for Nexen Tire Corp. “Nexen will devote greater R&D effort to becoming a leading global brand with higher competitiveness.”
