Australian Consumer magazine recommends Nexen CP661
Australian consumer test magazine “Choice” recently recommended the Nexen CP661 summer tyre as its “Choice to buy”. The recommendation was given to only six of the 18 175/65 R14 tyres tested. “Choice”, a well known consumer magazine in Australia, selected a common tyre size which is fitted to many compact cars.
The test categories included such criteria as rolling noise and cornering abilities, as well as braking distances on both dry and wet surfaces. In the case of cornering in wet conditions, Nexen was awarded second place amongst all the tyres tested.
According the tyre manufacturer, the Nexen CP661 high-performance summer tyre “stands out above the competition for its good value for money and handling characteristics.”
The test result and the consequent buying recommendation constitute an important landmark for Nexen, both in Australia and internationally, in the tyre manufacturer’s aim to achieve its ambitious goals. In fact, Nexen Tyre aims to be amongst the Top 10 tyre manufacturers worldwide by 2015.
