Hey guys,

Happy 4th of July.

After 20,000 miles, my Falken 453 rear tires now need replacements, primarily due to camber wears. I picked up a set of Nexen N5000 Plus at American Tire Depot yesterday and they don't really look nor feel right!

I called them today about the problems and they offered to exchange them for me. With such good customer service, I felt compelled and ended up ordering another set for the front to match the back...

The Nexen N5000 plus has sidewalls with "rounded edges" (the edge curves inward). Personally, I don't like the look because it makes the stance looks flimsy (it also make the wheels arches look too open!).

The Falken 452 I had previously also had the "rounded edges" on the side walls. They look so ugly, I tried everything to wear them out, so I could replace.! Lol

By personal experience, does anyone know whether the Nexen NFERA SU1 has the rounded inward sidewalls???

In any case, I am Pro-Savings and Pro-pretty looking tires. I prefer not to spend more than $800 on a set of new tires. Can someone recommend a set with NON ROUNDED EDGES ON SIDEWALLS that gives comfortable rides and handling? It's my daily driver.

Thanks!

Got the Michelin Pilot Super Sport for $846 out the door at discount tire and they are amazing, a real drivers car. Am in love with these tires but am wary of the poor treadware.
