Heard of them before. Some website mention Nexen (Roadstone), so I think they are one and the same.
Tyre model also same and Roadstone website is Thailand. Maybe they cannot use Nexen brand in Thailand (Guessing only)

So far, some Korean tyres are gaining up on the performance category. The likes of Hankook, Kumho and now Nexen.
But don't go for any China Brand tyres yet. Even their Branded ones are not up to mark yet.... smile_blackeye.gif

"Roadstone tyres are made in Korea by a factory set up by Michelin. It is sold as a quality budget international tyre.

Roadstone has a good international and racing reputation. They are manufactured by Nexen Tyres and they make all size tyres for cars, light trucks, truck, and earth movers."

I tried Roadstone Roadian last year. 255/70/R15 Internationally marketed as Nexen Roadian.
Made in Korea.
Changed after 7 months, lost traction when hitting water.
Don't know about theris other models, but i'll stay away from Roadian.
Looks nice though.
