Does anyone know anything about these? had a lot of trouble trying to find Toyos which were on Kluger but they are unavailable.
Eventually dealer offerred NEXEN for $175 each and I was so sick of it I accepted without researching them.

Have heard of them, but can’t give any feedback as never driven on them or looked at them.

I know some tyre stores fit the High Pro-Formance Nexen tyres with the Rim packages that they offer, I guess that’s how they off relatively cheep Rim and tyre packages, instead of fitting a $350 Dunlop they fit a $140 Nexun

The High Performance ones are pretty good, excellent grip, no squeal *need to go faster around a corner i think* and hold the road well in both wet and dry conditions. They are also cheap enough to light them up ;o)

Dont know about the 4WD type ones though.

I had them on my 300zx twin turbo. I thought for the value for money they where a great tyre that just didnt have the hight performance that main stream tyre had. They wore evenly and lasted a long time with great grip in the rain. however they were skittish on a cold frosty morning even after a 30 minute commute.

I dont know about the 4WD you can be the lab rat.

Got some on my patrol, they were fine on the sand at robe, they have purely road tread even though they are a/t tyres. I might challenge them in the pyrenees.
They look to me like some cheapie the dealer put on to get the car out the door without too much addittional cost to them.
Next I'll pinch the kellys off my LC for the patrol and put half decent muddies on the 60.
