Alternative tires to NEXEN N Blue EV

Hi all,

2015 Soul EV here. Does anyone have recommendations for alternative tire brands that fall into low rolling resistance? Nexen tires seem like shite and local tire person is warning me against them since they've been discontinued and may be sitting in warehouses for long periods of time. Sorry if this topic is obvious or has been discussed before. New here!

Any help appreciated! Oh and I'm in the US.

Mine is currently riding on a complete set of Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus. Not sure how they compare to the Nexen's but I've never had any problems or complaints.

Cool! Thanks for sharing, I'll look into that for possible tire replacement for my Soul.

There's a big thread on the Leaf forum https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=18857
The Leaf originally came with an OEM version of the Ecopia's that were almost as terrible as the Nexen's that we have, but the consensus seems to be that the retail version of the Ecopia's is a lot better.
