Horrible tyre! Steer clear you'll regret you got them!

published

Bought these tyres a week ago. Been back to the tyre shop 3 times within a week. 1 flat on rear left tyre after driving 7km home, took it back. 2 days go by rear right goes flat. Took the car back again. All 4 tyres replaced with same hifly's. 3 days go by another 3 flats. Both rears and 1 front within 50km of driving. Don't buy them, they're garbage, not worth risking your families life to save $100. Stick to the well known brands.

Purchased in January 2020 for A$78.00.

Treads wore out before 20,000km!
Easily gets punctured.
Poor value for money. You can spend 25% more money and get a tyre that lasts 35,000km+.
Only good thing is it's not noisy.

Purchased for A$50.00.

cheap & nasty made from recycled rubber

published

bought 4 tyres they were recommended by the tyre dealer they were cheap at $100.00 each the worst tyres i have ever fitted to a car. after 5,000 kms one tyre developed a slow leak i changed the valve & it made no difference it got to the stage where i was putting air every day. a week later one back tyre started losing air took both tyres off & found the inside wall of the tyre was cracked, sprayed it soap & water looking for any leaks it bubbled in 3 different places indicating 3 separate leaks still plenty of tread left on the tyres. tyre dealer me they are made from recycled rubber & the rubber develops cracks over time & the walls collapse.

Purchased in November 2018.

Poor quality - dont buy this brand

published

We bought four brand new tyres for our car, it had done less than 7000 km and there bubbles in the tyre. Went to the supplier, he said he can't do anything about it, we could buy another to replace it. Waste of our money. We are seniors and don't do any rough driving. Very disappointed.

Exceptional value for price

published

I purchased a set of four Hiflys from Tyrepower in Bendigo for our Nissan Elgrande about eight months ago and we're very happy with their performance. Relatively quiet on coarse chip bitumen, wonderful on the smooth stuff, and they handle better than I would have expected in the wet weather. No hint of slide or skid and the Elgrande is a large 8 seater people mover of around two tonnes. .I'll be requiring replacement tyres on my VW Touareg shortly and will have no hesitation in fitting Hiflys.

Didn't last very long

A disappointing result with these tires used on the front on chip seal roads in New Zealand.
Only achieved 40,000 kms within 5 years on a Toyota Corolla 2006 model.
I understand that New Zealand's chip deal is harsh on any brand of tires.
I did however found them reasonably quiet while driving on our roads.
The tires cost me $NZ300 for two tires installed in 2013.

What a garbage!

published

I bought my 08 Camry half year ago, and it was fitted with these tyres. Then my nightmare came, on the dry road, it is so noisy. Sometimes I need to shout in order to let passengers in back hear me clearly on the highway. The grip is just OK to drive and brake. However, when it comes to rainy days, disaster appears, no grip, very slipping or even sliding. One day I was driving my friend to the airport, it was a windy and rainy day. Oh god, it is the worst experience I have ever had in a car. Less than two weeks after I bought the car, I changed them into Bridgestone Potenza RE003 right away. Everything has changed significantly! Never, never buy these tyres. Don’t waste your money on crap!

Great value for the price

published

Just racked up 15000 km mostly hi speed highway driving high temperatures,some dirt and some wet weather. On a kuga titanium AWD, replaced the continentals that were at the end of their life. Dubious at the start and fully understand I may not get the same km. All the negatives posted I can honestly say I've not experienced. I estimate I'll get another 30,000 km from them and if so I'll be very happy and put them on again.

Now on 22,000 km. Absolutely no issues whatsoever. I now adhere to wheel alignments and maintain correct pressure. I'm determined to get 40,000 from these tyres. My guess is I will.

Dangerous in the wet

published

These tyres are the cheap end of the scale, dangerously slippery in the wet even at slow speeds on roundabouts and moving out from a corner or stationary. We have had numerous slide outs during wet weather and above 80km with windows up they r noticeably noisy. Im looking for new tyres.

FANTASTIC TYRES

published

I'm a mechanic with 30+ years experience. Trust me, you won't get a better tyre for your money in the cheaper range of brands available. I put them on my Corolla and gave them a workout in the wet and dry and am more than happy. I now have them on my daughters car and can relax knowing they are safe and predictable. The poor reviews of this tyre are most likely due to things like worn suspension, shock absorbers, incorrect tyre pressure or not driving to the road and weather conditions. I will be definitely getting these tyres again.

Great tyres.

published

Got these in April and they are great! I could feel the difference in how my vehicle handled immediately. Smooth ride with these on and I seem to be getting better mileage which is always a bonus. Happy with the service and the after-service care from the service provider as well.

Hifly tyres on a Mazda MX5.

published

The tyres are not durable. They developed waves across the thread. This after only no more than 15000k. The grip was ok. They wore down in the middle of the tyre despite using 29psi , the recommended pressure. Also they became very noisy. I am really not happy. The tyre dealer I bought them from no longer stocks the brand. They have worked out the brand is below expectations.

Purchased a 2013 Mondeo diesel titanium for $26,000 in March 2016 with 70,000k. These tyres don't belong on a car of this standard but the local Ford dealer did not think the same. They wheelspin in the wet when moving off. They are very noisy and there has been a strange noise off the rear wheels . Thought it was a buckled alloy but it turns out to be a faulty tyre.The fronts need replaced after 30,000k. Dunlops going on next week . There is a market for inexpensive but these are just cheap.

OK, though didn't get too much chance to use them

published

Purchased these as they were the cheapest available when one tyre was ripped on my old car. Worked fine, didn't notice any problems at the time, didn't affect the performance either. However I was involved in a non-related car crash after which the whole car was written off, not due to the tyres though.

cheap and nasty

published

Recently had to organise new tyres on the work car (Toyota Corolla ) the powers that be, said to not spend too much money as the car is really only used to pick up stationary, clients from the air-port and dry-cleaning etc. So purchased the above mentioned tyres. Not good, Not good at all. Only had these tyres on the car for less than six weeks, and they are already showing signs of wear and tear (feathering) (despite all four tyres being balanced, rotated and wheel aligned) The car is a 2016 Toyota corolla (hatchback) that has done just under 30,000km, so I don't think excessive km or driving is the issue. Would not recommend. Spend more money and get a better product that is safer and won't need to be replaced as quickly.

A bit noise

published

Bought this one for my Toyota corolla. Not so popular in the market. Reason to buy because only one tyres is punctured heavily and need replacing so to make it even, i need to replace with same brand. has been using it for a year now and not really a problem as we only drive it in the city. a bit slippery when it is wet. not recommended when you use it for doing many high maneuvers as the grip is not really great.
I probably will change to other brand if my tyres finish. not worth it.

Great for price

published

I replace two of my car's tires with this type about 2 years ago and I found for the budget, and I found it is unexpected great! Very good quality, very durable! SO, I insisted on replacing another two tires of my car this early year, and they are in great condition as well. And I found after replacing all of my tires with this product, it helps improve the stability of my car, and never slippery anymore.

Is hifly good for Nissan Xtrail?

G'day Allison. Yes, I'd imagine that the Hifly would be a good choice for the X-Trail, although after doing lots of research, I've found the Zeta Azura to be quieter on the road and an excellent all-round tyre. We have both,the Hifly, which is on our Nissan Elgrand, and the Zeta on the VW Touareg and I rather favour the Zeta, although both will do a good job. The Zeta is designed for SUVs and 4 x 4s so they would suit your car. I have no affiliation with either brand, I'm just a consumer.

I don't see any reason for not putting these tyres on your Nissan X-Trail, remembering these are budget prices and good value for wet & dry driving

Hi,

Sorry I am unsure as the tyres were fitted to my vehicle when I purchased it, but I had searched at the time of making this review and the price was approximately $80 without fitting.

It would be well worth your while spending $30-$40 more a tyre and getting a decent tyre fitted, such as a Bridgestone or Toyo tyre. I DO NOT recommend you purchase these tyres purely based upon price, they offer minimal grip and wear out very quickly.
