Nexen Roadian 542


Designed for today's light trucks and SUV's, the Nexen Roadian 542 delivers a comfortable high performance driving experience. Enjoy a quiet, comfortable ride with outstanding directional driving stability at high speeds and on uneven surfaces thanks to the tire's straight center rib. At high speeds, its dual pitch and rigid shoulder block design work together to stiffen the shoulder block and enhance cornering and steering control even with heavier loads. Straight wide grooves alongside lateral grooves work to increase wet traction and resist hydroplaning, making wet weather driving safer.

  • 5 Random Variable Pitch Sequence
  • Rigid Shoulder Block Design
  • 4 Wide Straight Grooves
