For a budget tyre these are really great wearing and quiet tyre.
I have always thought that 'you get what you pay for' and I don't know many people who don't try to save a dollar where they can. After driving on these tyres for a good 45000 ks (they were on the car when we purchased it) so I don't even know how many kms they had done before. On the roads we drive on these tyres have proven themselves with a quiet ride, good handling, ability to withstand punctures, shredding and keep in balance. They need replacing now so I'll be replacing them with the same. All up good grip, comfort. Wear. Wet weather abilities and most importantly value.

HFBOS 235/45X18 DSRT Ttyres
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
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.

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?

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 with 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.Unless you're looking to put a cheap set of tyres on an old city runabout where performance and noise suppression are no issue then I would suggest you do yourself a favour and pay another $30-$40 a corner for something decent.

cheap and nasty
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
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
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.

Slippery
Would not rate. If you do a lot of wet weather driving i wouldn't recommend buying these. Not only do they slide around but the tread has seemed to disappear rapidly too. I would put my money next time into a more recognised brand like bfg michelin or toyo. Even firestone continentals.

Ford BF Ford Falcon wagon Mk III

Good for price
Bought a set of 215 60 16 for my Falcon wagon, price was $84 a tyre fitted and balanced. That was in 2015, they have done 50,000 kilometres and lasted nearly two years. I drive mostly country roads and they handle pretty good as I have had to swerve for countless kangaroos and have never lost control or skidded wet or dry. Road noise isn't too bad considering I'm driving on secondary country roads. Would have bought again but price has gone up to $110 a tyre so am giving the bob Jane all rounder a go now. All in all wasn't a bad tyre for the low price.

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 brilliantly in extreme wet weather conditions (never once hace they lost traction).Even in 2+ emergency stops since they've been fitted, the tyres have proven themselves.20,000kms on these tyres with still plently of tread left & with no loss in performance, could easily get another 15-20,000kms out of the tyres.Would buy another set & would highly recommend

Hazard - stay away unless you commit suicide
After a year driving 2 HF201 tires - about 20,000 Km, I find 1 of the tyres ripped - A whole cube of rubber (about 3 Cm) has removed and vanished - The inner dietary fibers become revealed. It's only a matter of luck, that the tyre didn't exploded !!!I'm 66 years old, with 3 grandsons, w 44 years on road including driving of 4X4 in land- Never before I experienced such a danger.from now on, instead of "Hifly" ,say - "HIGHFLY" - Your promised way to Even.Additional info - not only I got all my money back - Cash money, the dealer leave me the other 2 Tires,without any payment !!!
