We’re pretty into tires around here, but despite our never-ending interest, we understand that not everyone feels the same. For most, tires aren’t on their radar until they’re a problem – either a puncture or similar issue, uneven wear, or once performance is compromised due to low tread.
And when that day arrives, most normal folks want a straightforward solution that won’t break the budget, and will settle the tire issue for the long-term. The Nexen N’Priz AH5 is just that type of no-nonsense tire.
Here’s what you should know about the Nexen N’Priz AH5:
“The N’Priz AH5 emphasizes comfort, handling, and durability while providing lasting grip on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.” – TireBuyer.com
Standard touring all-season tires are your every day, workhorse type of tires. Fitted to coupes, sedans, minivans, crossovers, and some small SUVs, this category of tire is far and away the most common on America’s roadways.
Rather than emphasizing any one performance area, standard touring all-season tires provide solid performance across the board: Satisfactory handling, sufficient grip on dry and wet roads, good fuel economy (low rolling resistance), low road noise, and plenty of compliance to keep your daily ride comfortable on imperfect roads.
Nexen is building a reputation as a high-quality original equipment tire supplier. OE tires are selected by engineers to complement and enhance the vehicle’s performance and comfort characteristics. Nexen is building a strong reputation in this area, with recent selections by Volkswagen, Hyundai, Ram, and perhaps most notably, Porsche for their Macan crossover.
With 45 sizes ranging from 14" to 17" in diameter, it’s likely the N’Priz AH5 is a fit for your vehicle’s factory wheels.
Anyone who has experienced a hydroplane situation knows it’s a frightening loss of traction that’s best avoided. The likelihood of hydroplaning increases as tread wears, so if you’ve been sensing less wet traction with your worn tires, and an “on/off” traction sensation when traveling on wet roads, it’s probably not your imagination.
The N’Priz AH5 will be a welcomed change for drivers of worn tires. Four circumferential, longitudinal grooves work to evacuate standing water and keep the N’Priz AH5 connected to the road surface.

As we’ve detailed in many educational articles, all-season doesn’t mean optimized for winter traction. (For more info, see All Season vs. All-Weather Tires.)
The N’Priz AH5 has the tread attributes to manage light snow and ice, but doesn’t deliver strong traction on treacherous winter roads.
The solution if you are in a region that experiences true winter? Seasonal tire swaps for winter tires in the late fall/early winter. Or, if you want one set of tires for year-round use, including harsh winter conditions, look toward all-weather tires, which are more qualified and engineered for strong wintertime performance.
The Nexen N’Priz is one of the more affordable Standard Touring All Season Tires on the market.
A purchase of the N’Priz AH5 comes with 36 months of free tow and tire change and Nexen’s Road Hazard, the Total Coverage Warranty.
Nexen is confident in the structural integrity of their tires, and offer warranty support backing that up long after the sale.
It’s still early in the N’Priz AH5’s life cycle, but TireBuyer.com users have awarded it a 4.7/5 overall rating, with the vast majority of users giving it either a 4- or 5- star rating.
