Jinyu YW51 Reviews

Good winter tyre does the job . Very good value for money. Better than summer tyres in the snow

just fitted these tyres to my Volvo S40 saloon, and have so far driven over a 1000 miles with no problems at all, the tyres grip great in the wet,ice and dry and the steering has been more responsive than ever, I have not tried then in any snow yet but will be very soon on a trip up to Scotland. For the past 2 years I have fitted more premium brands of tyres to my car but will be purchasing set of Jinyu summer tyres later on in the year and they are a superb make.

Bought these last year from Wheelwright for winter with some steel wheels and the difference they made was unbelievable. I managed to get to work throughout the winter which is important as taking a day off because of snow isn't really an option, and I cannot believe how much better the Merc handles. Before buying these tyres, driving was pant-wettingly scary! Would recommend.

I drive a rear wheel drive car and after the constant jibes last year I decided to bite the bullet and buy some winter tyres and wheels. Unfortunately I was on a serious budget due to a rather excessive summer tyre bill for my other wheels and it was with some reluctance that I finally decided on these. All I can say is wow! Winter driving in general was greatly improved and after doing a few hundred miles quite gingerly I decided that these could take the strain nearly as well as my summers. When it came to snow these were in a completely different league - I honestly can't convey quite how good these worked but imagine the difference between night and day. Last year I got stuck in a flat car park just spinning around a bit and wearing my clutch out - this year in the same car park I was flying past everything. My only real concern was that my stopping distances were now so short (in comparison) that I did fear for the back end of my car when the person behind couldn't stop!

As we live in a rural backwater I fitted a set of these to my wife's Volvo V40 last winter. Not really put to the test last year. However, put them back on this winter. Really put them to the test today. Compacted snow and freezing temps made the road in front of my house like an ice rink. These tyres were brilliant. Took it steady on the way out. No wheel spin and they felt very grippy. On the way back I decided to put them to the test and put my foot on the break. They kept me going in a straight line. Extremely good value and more importantly I felt safe with them in each corner. Will be putting a set on my V70 D5.

Volkswagen Tiguan Sport 2.0 TDI 140hp (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 0 average miles
Just got back from Austria Ski trip with a VW Tiguan 4 motion
fitted new Jinyu tyres as recommended by my tyre fitters that i have used for ever @ 80.00 per corner
They were first class
They were so grippy it was a delight
We were out every day in fresh snow and slush plus lots of rain
The temperature was between + 3 degrees and - 7 degrees
Another vehicle with us slid every where and got stuck a lot
We did not get stuck and we descended some very steep winding roads without fault
These tyres are well worth fitting for peace of mind
