Questions and Answers for the Infinity INF 049

2017-03-18 - Hi are these tires directional i notice the grips look like they can only go one way?

Unfortunately Infinity haven't responded to our request, however these do look like certain modern asymmetric tyres such as the Uniroyal Rainsport 3.

Given 34% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo V70 2.5 T awd (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 easy going miles
I am an advanced Police driver in the UK, I put 4 of these on my AWD V70, I would class them as a dangerous tyre on a wet or damp road. Average on dry roads, fair bit of road noise. Definately would not recommend and would not buy again.

Given 57% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Celica VVTLi (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 20 average miles
I had them on my celice for 4 years, I woud'n say its the best one but not bad at all, its cheap but I never had any accident for the 4 past winters where I live north of quebec its a good witer spot, truth I come to trust these wither tires, sometimes brand name is not only the thing to look for,

These tires are exceptional in wet and snowy weather, about par in dry , on or off pavement all year round I have found no problem with them a little noisy great for small cars , I drive a focus in mid ontario

Given 45% (breakdown) while driving a SEAT LEON 1.6 105 bhp (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 50,000 spirited miles
Very dangerous tyres... Be smart and dont buy it. When temeprature is more than 6 °C, tires are very slippery on dry and noise is horrible, like driving a truck! But when temperature is below 0 °C, tires become great on dry asphalt :D They really stick! But sadly winter is wet almoust all of the time, so this doesnt help... On wet these tyres are awfull! Like driving on ice. I drive very fast all of the time, but with this tyres I am pushed to drive really slow! There is no grip at all... i give you my word! On snow these tyres are not so bad, when u start moving once, its hard for you to stop, even in big snow or uphill, just be gentle on gas pedal :) but if you stop and u want to get moving(small hill or big snow), its hard, becouse there is no grip, snow fills the profile... Its same downhill and stopping at speed. So on short: Very good on dry and low temperatures. Very good on snow when mooving. Awfull and dangerous on wet. Bad for start on snow. Becouse there is not alot of snow in my country and winters are wet almoust all of the time, these tires are really bad choise.
