Top Jinyu YU61 Review

Given 83% while driving a Ford Galaxy (225/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 58,000 average miles
HI there. I've using them on my 2008 Galaxy for last 58000 miles and they still at 3mm. Really good ones for heavy car. 225/50r17 Z Extra Load. At current they loosing a bit when wet so i decided to get new ones for next season. I did front/back swaps each 15000miles to get even wear and i keep them bit harder than recommended pressure to get better feedback. I'm very impressed overall as they were for 45 quid each and can say it loud: OM michelin energy saver i had before was overpriced rubbish (in grey colour - not even black) to compare.

Given 69% while driving a Ford Kuga (235/45 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 13,000 average miles
Fitted Jinyu Yu61 due to price/reviews compared to original Continentals. Used on 150 bhp front wheel drive Kuga. Contis lasted 19000 miles but were an exellent tyre but at £190 each juzt too expensive albeit rears are now at 32000 miles and still have over 4ml left. Yu61 have been good, more susceptable to tramlining and grip/handling is dropping off with 3-4ml left. Would i buy them again?At the same price definitely.

Given 40% while driving a BMW 535d M Sport (275/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 4,000 miles
OK in the dry but awful in the wet. Can’t even accelerate gently at times. Wouldn’t buy again.

Given 39% while driving a Mercedes Benz E250 CDI (275/35 R19) on mostly motorways for 10,000 average miles
I had 4x new jinyu tyres fitted on my car as I was leaving for a long trip and could not get the other branded ones on time. I had to change on of the back tyre while I was away on holiday as it had a huge bump inner side due to broken mesh inside. When I got back its gone through MOT and the other tyre at the back again had a big crack which was changed again. Yesterday I just slightly hit the side of my back tyre to the kerb which would have been fine with any other brand but this is just split. very low quality to say the least. Steer well away and go buy something you can trust. This is the first and last time I am ever buying this budget s..t.

Given 87% while driving a Honda Accord i DTEC EX (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 0 easy going miles
I have replace it with my previous premium brand for Honda accord. Very good in handling, breaking and grip. Also quiet on road. its more than I expected from a budget tyre with low price. Recommended to test and buy.
