Has anyone here purchased the Nankang Conquerer R/T. Is the tread genuinely this aggressive?

I'm not concerned about the effects of the tread, simply my question is this- is this genuinely what the tread looks like on this particular tyre the Nankang Conquerer R/T?

I saw that image while searching. But then I found the Nankang Australia website.

This image from that website suggests a less aggressive pattern for the R/T:



However the M/T appears to be what you're looking at:

Thanks. yesterday I did what you did and that is the reason for my question. If you look really closely the MT is slightly different and the RT you show is not the Conquerer. Having done exactly as you did, I decided to post here to ask if anyone has the actual tyre. I also asked the supplier for a photo of the actual tyre and although they promised to do so, they are yet to supply the image.

With a name like that you know where it is made. Bought one for the van, a 30 x 9.5OR15 LT only as a safety precaution from Tobermorey. Cost $320--ouch, even though it was the cheapest. Bottom line is that it is wearing much faster than the other van tyre which is a Goodyear. It has a softer rubber compound which you may want . Even a Maxxis would be better than a Nankang. LOL

Thanks for your comment. Just like Maxxis, Nankang are made in Taiwan. They have a longer history than Maxxis being the first tyre manufacturer in Taiwan. Their history includes a partnership with Yokahamma. I am sure they would wear more being so aggressive, if they are indeed that aggressive, which is what I'm trying to find out.

In view of the comments, let me say, this question is very specific. It has nothing to do with my tyre of choice, which happens to be Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ and has been for a long time. Prior to that, including my rally driving days, it was Toyo.
