Questions and Answers for the Hifly HF805

2018-03-18 - 235/40 R18 Challenger DSRT`s on a 2008 Mondeo 2.0 petrol.. What`s the correct tyre pressure? Have tried 28 psi front and 32 psi Front ( as recommended by Ford ) and none of these pressures give correct wear. Always end up with excessive wear in the center of tread?

Tyre pressures are manufacturer dependant, so the correct tyre pressure is set by the vehicle manufacturer. That said, centre tread wear usually indicates overinflation.

Top Hifly HF805 Review

Given 79% while driving a Honda Integra R DC5 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 40,000 spirited miles
Have 205 55 R16 fitted to my Integra.
I avoid hard braking but love cornering at speed. I inflate my tyres to 38PSI front and 36PSI rear.
I've managed to get 40,000 miles or 65,000km from my set of Hifly HF805s. I believe they'll make it to 80,000km.

So far, I can see a lot of negative comments about these tyres... maybe because they're Chinese and it's ok to vent racist comments about anything Chinese. Maybe it's the car... like the guy whose Yaris is spinning it's front wheels.

The HF805 is a summer tyre. There's no ice in summer.

On dry and wet, braking and cornering are absolutely excellent. The performance is actually amazing. Durability has been great.

I'm surprised at the number of ignorant people who think tyres are made with secret recipes that only some manufacturers know.

If I use a slick tyre in the wet, it doesn't matter whether it's a Michelin or a Pirelli. If it's a soft compound it's going to give better grip but wear faster than a hard compound. Wider tyres give better lateral grip. Thinner side walls give better handling but are harsher.

The HF 805's pattern, compound are more than appropriate for the list of ordinary cars I've seen in this thread.

Given 90% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GT TDI 140 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
bought my golf and it had Hifly 805 on the back with continentals on the front, the fronts quickly wore out so decided to fit same as on the back Hifly 805 and was delighted with the tyres.... good grip in dry ...good in the wet and lasted easily 20k... liked them so much that when tyres needed replacing got full set fitted for just short of £200... no issue in recommending

BMW (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
This is my second set of Hifly tires. I don't know why this brand gets so many bad reviews. Maybe it depends on the car, or the tire size.
I have them fitted on my BMW with 225 on the front, and 255 on the rear axle. The performance is fine. I have quite some torque on the rear tires and not for one moment they become dangerous. They let you know in time when you reach the limit of grip and communicate clear. On wet and dry. Also I drive regularly on the German highway with average speeds of 250Km/h for several hours, never had any issue with the tires.
Of course, with 600NM of torque my car can make any tire spin and loose grip, but the Hifly's simply do a good job.
The last set I had lasted 40000km which is less than A-brand tires. But those also cost the double. Overal a good performance for the money and a safe drive.

Given 47% while driving a Dodge Dart (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 22,000 spirited miles
These tires were on my 2013 Dodge Dart Rallye when I purchased it. I'm not sure where the previous owner got these tires but they are the worst I've ever had. Previously I had Continental Pro Contacts and they were excellent in comparison.

I have skid on both dry and wet pavement with these HiFly tires. They are noisy and uncomfortable. I have rotated them every 4k-5k miles, balanced and aligned my vehicle and the tires are still loud, uncomfortable and slick.

Needless to say, I am very happy that after my 22k miles on them that I am throwing them in the trash and installing new tires this week. I would not recommend these tires.

Given 53% while driving a Mazda 2010 SP25 (205/50 R17) on mostly town for 8,000 spirited miles
These little puppies were fitted to the front axle only when I purchased my car. They were only fitted a week prior to purchasing the car. I was actually surprised at the dry weather grip levels as they were a tyre that I would never ordinarily consider.

My next suprise was when they were on the wear indicators around 13,000km later. To be fair, I never rotated them, and although I'm not a hoon, I was reasonably hard on them. Still, buyer beware that they're about as durable as a lemonade sandwich
