Bought a used Focus RS mk2 this year and came with these tyres fitted. Truly awful, especially in the wet. I know my car is a performance hatch with fwd but these tyres have zero grip in the wet and even in the dry I can't get any decent acceleration in first gear. Don't buy them
Stay home when it rains...
Hi all. Originally impressed by the low noise & great stability of this tyre; the positive aspects are forgotten as soon as you encounter water. These tyres are dangerous in the wet especially if (as all cars do) changing direction regardless of the pressure they are run at. These tyres also become very hard once run/driven which DOES change the comfort & ability of the tyre (I have driven over 20k now); I have had to drop the PSI to what I consider low (34 front/32 rear) to maintain comfort otherwise these tyres bounce over bumps; in turn this...has had an impact on fuel economy. I've contacted TOYO 3 times (twice by email & a follow up call speaking to a head office rep [name removed]) to report the issue & get some advice however I have had NO response from either the head office or the regional office in North QLD from 3 weeks ago, very poor customer service skills from an international supplier who should do better... My advice to anyone who is being advised to buy this tyre; DON'T - you can expect better grip & comparable comfort from a Bridgestone Ecopia at virtually half the price.
