You get what you pay for.
Very poor grip on wet roads, even when driving slow around corners the car will loose grip (both under steer and over steer). In the dry they're okay but still cannot take corners very fast as you will most likely spin out.
They do last a fair while however as they've been on the car for around 2 years?
Inexpensive, lasts a fair while.
Poor quality, unsafe.
Cheap mediocre tyres
If you're looking for longevity, comfort, noise suppression, good braking performance, and decent grip in both the wet and dry from your tyre, then these are not for you.
These tyres were already fitted to my car, a mid sized euro hatch, by the dealer when bought second hand. They delivered agreeable levels of grip for the price (around $80 per tyre after searching on the Internet) within the initial 5,000km. Beyond that I noticed the wear increase drastically, with the tyres being deemed unsafe by my mechanic after 14 months and 35,000 km w...ith mostly country/highway driving. By this point I could not wait to have them removed! They delivered uninspiring grip on turn in, causing the car to understeer dramatically in some cases. The noise is also what I would deem to be of an unacceptable level unless you're on a completely smooth surface (a rarity in Australia) even at speeds as low as 50kmh around town. Downright dangerous too on an unsealed road giving the feel of driving on marbles. I have since upgraded to a set of Pirelli P1s which are far superior in every conceivable way. The Pirellis have made the car a joy to drive, rather than the chore it was with these tyres. They also caused the ride to become ever harsher over time, even when inflated to as low as 28PSI. Another annoyance I haven't noticed since fitting the Pirellis.
Excellent for a budget tyre.
A few months ago my car needed new tyres and because I didn't have much money @ the time I got a full set of 14inch Hifly HF201's fitted to my '85 Ford Laser (Less than $290 fitted+balanced).
With the Hifly's being a Chinese tyre I was a little sceptical as to their performance (I'd had a nasty experience with NANKANGS on my previous car, also a Laser).
However, after 9 months & 20,000kms I have to say that I am quite surprised. They're smooth with hardly any noise under normal driving, grip surprisingly well under hard cornering & perform br...
Questions & Answers
Is there a warranty policy? I bought two tyres new and both have failed in less than 7000ks. They are very weak
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 want to know 185/70 R14 price?
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.
