Questions and Answers for the Aptany RA301


If it says outside and inside then it is an asymmetric tyre. The tyre pattern would also confirm this.

2018-11-15 - what should the tread depth be on a new aptany 205/55R/16 91H RW211 winter tire

Given 21% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 7 GTD (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 7,000 spirited miles
Absolutely rubbish tyre bought my used car and the seller put 4 of these tyres on I assume he had the cheapest tyre they did which was these. Very noisey tyre very poor grip in rain just masses of understeer. Fronts haven't lasted 7000 miles and they are now 2mm. Would steer clear of these tyres. Dont understand people who buy cheap tyres not worth it when a 10k car is in a ditch because you saved 100 quid on tyres.

Given 77% while driving a Chevrolet Equinox (235/55 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 5,000 spirited miles
I have them on a 2011 Equinox and only for a year so limited info. Like the low road noise and the performance on the highway. The SUV AWD has never been a good mileage vehicle and there is no change with these tires

Given 87% while driving a Lexus ES350 (225/55 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
Wet traction is amazing, very smooth and quiet on the hwy. Z rated , car drives a lot better than the previous brand name tire that I removed with lots of tread left because of the poor wet traction. My mechanic laughed at the tires being a off brand, then he was shocked that 2 tires balanced without needing any weights . For the money these tires are fantastic.
