Top Hifly HF201 Review

Given 35% while driving a Hyundai Tucson (215/65 R16) on a combination of roads for 450 average miles
Four of these tyres were fitted to my Tucson by the previous owner just prior to me purchasing the car. Initially I was pleased that the car came with vitually new tyres. However it soon became clear that HIFLY HF201 tyres have some severe limitations when it comes to basic roadholding and build quality. In short, THESE TYRES ARE DANGEROUS.

The first thing I noticed was the large number of balance weights that had been used on each wheel. This led me to take a close look at the tyres and I immediately noticed a variation in tread depth across the width of the tyres, it varied from 8mm to 4.5mm on all tyres (hence the need for all those balance weights). I used to work for Michelin (Stoke-on-Trent) so I understand how tyres are made, but I can't figure out how the folks at HIFLY have managed to do this. Maybe their vulcanising moulds are just poorly manufactured or unevenly heated. The side walls had a few lumps, nothing too serious but I was suprised to see this on virtually new tyres.

The second thing I noticed was the general poor handling of the car and severe lack of grip on dry roads. Lots of low speed tyre squeal and unintentional wheel spins at junctions. This led me to check the tyre pressures but they were found to be fine (30 psi each). I don't drive like a maniac but I do expect tyres to at least perform to a reasonable standard. Wet roads proved to be even more of a challenge with the final straw being a 180 degree spin at around 25mph on a rounabout near Edinburgh.
Changed all four of the HIFLYs for Uniroyal Rallye4x4 street tyres and the car was immediately transformed into an enjoyable and safe ride.
The lesson here is that you get what you pay for, or in my case you get what the previous owner paid for.
There may well be good tyres out there at the cheaper end of the market but I'm affraid the HIFLY HF201 is NOT one of them.

Given 76% while driving a Vauxhall (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 16,000 average miles
These tyres were fitted by the dealer when I bought the car three years ago to get it through its MOT Test. I've driven it for 16000 miles and have just replaced them with 2.5 mm tread (my limit) left. It has been a mix of motorway and town driving and I don't consider my driving style to be "progressive", "sporty" or "lunatic".
16000 miles on a heavy front wheel drive car seems reasonable to me from a cheap tyre. No wheel spin when accelerating hard from a standstill into traffic (don't drop the clutch and just floor the accelerator pedal).
Never had any exciting moments of aquaplaning but then very few people do (if you are Aqua planing you have no control over direction until the tyre bites of its own accord or you run out of water)
Just replaced with a pair of Avon ZV5's and the biggest difference is the reduction of road noise.
Would I buy them again? If I couldn't afford the extra £20 for Avons - yes. But because I can I won't.

Given 20% while driving a Acura TL TYPE S (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 18,000 easy going miles
This is hands down the worst tire I've ever used. After getting the car newly aligned I had a set of these installed. They lasted only 18k miles and were the most noisy tire ive ever used. They were down right dangerous driving in any wet conditions, no group at all!. Terrible.. never again.

Given 50% while driving a Toyota Camry (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
These tires are great on wet or dry conditions. On snow they are worthless. I got stuck twice on a plowed street. On the ice they are scary. The good part of these tires are they are very quiet. I can't tell you about tread life because they only have about 5000 miles on them.
