I work for Beaurepairs and been in tyres for a few years now, sold a heap of nankang n889's ,big forestry tyre due to giving huge milage and chunky grip in my area (Gisborne) not sure wot they like in snow as it dont snow much up here but in my opinion they are gud for the price, Maxxis does the identical tread pattern called a Buckshot Just as good but twice the price.

They have proved a darn good offroad tyre, biting well in all types of terrain. Also very pleased with wear as they have done over 30,000ks on my lwb and still haven't used half tread. I would estimate they will do round 75-80,000ks if run right out. Does need to be rotated front to rear every 6000ks.
In all, good performance and very good mileage at a budget price. If you want a genuinely good all round mudgrip but don't want to spend much, go for it.
From experience, I recommend this tyre.
