My new-to-me A4 came with new tires. I put air in them for the first time
today, and noticed they were Nexen N5000 tires. Huh? Never heard of them.
Google... Not much info (at least in US English): Korean. All-season. Cheap.
We'll see how they perform. My guess is that cheap new all-season tires with
deep tread are better than expensive 5-year old tires worn down to the wear bars.
On a side note, I was offered 4 new (delivery mileage) 17-inch Audi split-spoke
wheels with Pirelli tires for dirt cheap. I bought 'em. So I'm not too concerned
with the unknown Nexen tires. I'm thinking the 17-inchers will be summer wheels,
the 16-inch ones will be winter wheels.
(How much more can I spend on my new car? No, don't tell me.)
