No good

Thought a good name company meant good tyres - NOT!

Handled average to below average in the dry, in the wet have to go very slow along roundabout otherwise you fell the car slip.

Noisy tyres, bumpy. The performane does not match there price or the company's big name. You won't get what you pay for here, in fact you get a very lesser tyre than what you paid for. Also when the tyres reached there 50% wear life, the car was all over the road, tracking was terrible, and in the wet, forget about it. Please do yourself a favour and look elsewhere, otherwise you will encounter all the mentioned issues these tyres have. You shouldn't have to put up or risk you safety with these.

Crap Tryes, never again

These tyres came with my new 2011 FG Falcon XR6. They seemed ok for a while, not noisy and ran true however when I put the car in for it's 3000k service, the service manager pointed out to me that the tyres semed to be wearing unevenly. I ordered a wheel alignment there and then and it came back with just a minor adjustment required. I ran the tyres and at 18000k approx. I had to change them as they wore so much, they became illegal.

I put a on cheap brand of the same size, "Pace PC10" and they were fantastic. I soild the car with 72000k on the clock and the tyres passed the roadworthy inspection. They were quiet, felt safe to drive on in the wet and comfortable at 35psi.

Have had these tyres many time

I have heard one comment that these tyres are noisy - not true - I have had these tyres many times on my AUIII falcon sedan and they are the quietest tyre I have ever owned - and they wear well. They fill the wheel arch area well compared to some tyres. I am now using Goodyear Effiicientgrip because (even though the same size) it actually puts more rubber on the road, very slow tyre wear, feels solid and fills out the wheel arch area even a bit more than the NCT Eagle. Can't go wrong with either tyre

Hopeless in the wet

I replaced the two front tyres on my Falcon BA Wagon with NCT5's less than a year ago and they were ok in the dry. When driving in the wet, however, they are treacherous. Navigating a round about or right hand turn in the wet is difficult at low speed without skidding or sliding. Do not feel safe driving in wet with these tyres.
Expensive and very poor handling in wet

Average at best

This nct5 [thailand made] are useless in the wet, the tail of the car wants to come around unless your very gentle with the throttle, its like tyres they made in the 70's with zero technology, would not recommend them, not worth the possible loss of control of the vehicle, odd because the goodyear ga [aussie made] tyres on the falcon ute where and are a legend, might hunt some of those down

Dangerous in the wet, low grip, noise, not a great ride either, NO positive points about them...

90.000 and still going

I've been very impressed with these tyres. Quite, feel very safe under all conditions and I've just clicked over 90.000 ks on my 1.9 TDI Golf and I estimate another 10.000 to go.

Biggest disappointment was picking up a 40mm PK screw and losing the right front.

If I can still get them I'll certainly be looking at replacing them with the same.
Long wearing, quite, safe at all times.
Not proof against 40mm PK screws...other than that, nothing.

Paid $205 each for them. Grip on a dry road was good. Handled pretty well too, provided that it's dry, but once the road gets damp, they lose traction way too easily. They wore very well, though: my first set lasted 57,000km and my second 46,000km.

I have since replaced them with a set of Pirelli Cinturato P7 and the car has been transformed. The Cinturato P7s has excellent wet and dry grip, is whisper quiet, and to top it all off, I only paid $165 each for them. There are better tyres than the Eagle NCT5 out there for less money.
Good dry grip, longevity
Price, poor wet grip.

Noisy tyre

Goodyear Eagle NCT5 is a noisy tyre especially if the tyre is worn out.

I had 42.000 km but the noise of the tyre forced me to replaced them eventhough the tread about 2-3 mm.

I think there are many better tyres for same price for examples Continental Comfort Contact 5 or Yokohama C.Drive 2.
Almost nothing except handling
Noisy tyre

Overall im happy with the NCT5

Car; 2008 Ford Focus CL hatch.

KMS; 63,500

Results; all 4 tyres worn even down to the wear bar indicators. Rear 2 worn a bit more on the inside due to the cars wheel camber. Never rotated them. Car mainly does highway kms, not so much town driving. 15,000kms would have been towing a 6x4 trailer. The rest just a well packed car. 5,000kms on dirt/unsealed roads.

Im told they have stopped making the NCT5 and are moreso recommending the GOODYEAR duraplus for about 140ea.

Im going to try the KUMHO KH17 now so look out for my review on that.
even wear, low maintenance, great all round handling at highway speed in wet and dry
expensive to replace- Quoted by Beaurepairs, noisy Show reply

Overall great tyres for all terrain, great in wet weather however a little pricey but they wear well and evenly
Good wearing, wear evenly. Great fuel economy, cant fault it especially in wet weather, never skidded or anything.
Expensive tyres, i paid around $250 a tyre and that was the cheapest price.

Was immensley impressed with 1st set so when my car was due for new tyres I made enquiries and found them very reasonable priced, JAX have then on special $145ea fitted. So I have now fitted the 2nd set. I have recommended them to friends. :)
Came fitted on my 2006 BF Fairmont, 80046kms with tread left. Good Highway economy. Decent wet/dry handling and road holding.I run mine at 40psi. Just fitted 4 new same size 215/60/16.
As stated above just fitted a new set. I have noticed a very slight increase in road noise, still got the original on the steel rim in the boot, will compare, believe they are same. So will monitor and advise if noiser, only completed 10kms on new set. Show reply


I have 4 on my Merc E270 CDI and I've done 41,000 kms. Today one of the rear tyres simply exploded and there was a huge hole in the side wall. I'm now concerned about the safety of the remaining tyres.
Even wearing
worry about safety
