The Nitto NT NeoGen VR tire is one of the company’s newest models. Owners of sport compact cars will appreciate the performance enhancments the NeoGen VR brings to the table. With an asymmetrical design to go along with its all-season tread, this tire handles well in all weather conditions.
Dry pavement handling and cornering are especially noticeable in this model. The silica in the tread compound combines with better overall tread block strength to give the tire better traction. Wet road handling is improved due to circumferential grooves which are also angled to help evacuate more water away from the tire.
Prices on the Nitto NeoGen VR run from around $100 for the 15 inch series to upwards of $115 for the 16 inch models.
