Dealer installed Nexen NFera RU5, should I worry?

As part of CPO reconditioning, the dealer installed these. It had the Goodyear LS2's on it before, but apparently they were cupping.

Should I put up a fuss?

I've had the Nexen Nfera RU1 on my Treg since 22nd of December 2017 and I never regretted buying them. They're quiet, they ride well and handle well too.

According to the Nexen website, the RU1 is supposed to be a sportier version of the Nfera compared with the RU5, which is more comfort oriented.

Nexen is a good brand. Half of all Korean imports to Australia (I'm told) have Nexen tyres. My offroad van has Nexen LT's which have been trouble free for 35k klms and half worn if that.

Yeah, the RU1's look sportier, and I want comfort. So far the ride felt ok. I did thing they were a little noisy, but I have nothing to compare it to since I am a new owner.
