An average tyre, better then basic

2004 Toyota Highlander AWD, Tyres lasted 37400 kms and have been replaced, gave reasonable service, not out of the ordinary, tyre reviews are so subjective unless you have testing equipment, but they seemed normal Show details

Dangerous in the wet

Very quite and fairly priced, well when used on dry roads. Absolutely woeful on a wet road, can’t go round a round about at more than 20kph without traction control cutting in. The most dangerous tire I’ve ever had the misfortune of buying, pulling them off at just 5000km to go back to bridge stones, DO NOT BUY! Show details

Highly impressed

Replaced 4 tyres on our Subaru XV (MY14). Did the research before purchasing at Jax Tyres (Townsville) $545 around 18 months ago. Great ware characteristics, handling is sure footed in wet and dry conditions, low noise and excellent ride. Made by Hankook. I'm ex motor trade with over 40 years professional driving experience and these tyres are exceptional. No hesitation in recommending. Show details

What a FANTASTIC Tyre!

First of all, I take back ever thing bad I said about these tyres. At first I was like "Laufenn"???But let me tell you, GRIP, Ease pf Steering, Better Braking,Smooth ride, Quiet drive, Road Holding, Better Acceleration, WOW! I only just bought them on 1 Oct 2020, but let me tell you, I'm 58, Ex Racing Driver, and these tyres impressed me from get go.
I drive a POLO Gti and NOT shy to drive,... (well NOT like a old man) and these tyres have seriously impressed me. I couldn't afford what I wanted(Bridgestones at $1250.00) But these Laufenns at $636.00 x4, let me tell you, I'm GLAD I couldn't afford the Bridgestones, as I would have NEVER had the Pleasure of these Laufenns.!!! Forget the name. Just try the tyre. I bought 205/45/17 LK01 - WOW! Show details

Good tyre

I have had the tyres around 2 monthS and they are going well. The drive is smooth and handling significantly improved from previous Bridgestone tyres. They also grip to the road nicely when wet

Surprisingly good

In April last year (2018) I put a set of 215/16 Laufenn tyres on my AU Falcon as I had to go to QLD from Geelong to pick up a tandem trailer with a car on it. I previously had a set of cheap junk tyres on it but were new. they were not good in the wet so I got the Laufenn tyres on and they are absolutely fantastic in the wet. For a clunky old AU with no ABS it stopped like a race car with these Laufenn's on it. Just as good in the wet as in the dry. Its now May 2019 and they hardly show signs of wear. I've just rotated them for the first time now. HIGHLY recommended from me Show details

Low Mileage

I read the reviews on here and thought I'd give them ago.
I got 2 put on the rear of my commodore in Oct and its now April and they need replacing.
I got 24,000kms out of them, Pretty low.
The tires side walls are a little hard and you can feel it on curved corners at 100kmh, they are not as bad as other tires I have had.
they have good grip in wet and dry. Show details

Unexpectedly Good Tyre

I replaced Continental Sport Contact 5's 235/50R18 with the Laufenn's. Immediate impression was how quiet they were on all types of bitumen, on some of which the Conti's were that noisy, they detracted from the Kuga. The Laufenn's also disperse water and do not aquaplane at all. I'm impressed considering I paid $175.00 each for them. They certainly are NOT a budget tyre.

Value for money

I purchased Laufenn S Fit EQ LK01 from Jax tyres mainly on Laufenns tyre spec which indicated

Optimised dry and wet weather performance

Excellent stability and handling performance

Long tread life

Quiet, smooth driving

It took about a week for the tyres car and driver to be all on the same page.Sure they are not as good as OEM when vehicle was purchased but you wont be dissapointed.

Excellent value for money and performance

Was looking for Hankook tyres and found the next best thing, and since these tyres are made by Hankook, I knew I had the next best thing. Durable, grippy, quiet, good looking, and excellent value for money tyres. I know what I'll be having fitted next time I need tyres.

Hello.

My Ford Probe is a front wheel drive V6, and I have these tyres on the front. I can honestly and without \bias say that they are brilliant. I highly recommend them.

Best,

Mick.
