while driving a
(225/45 R17) on
I must admit, I wanted to buy cheap summer tyres, and I thought those Tigar, made in Serbia , unde Michelin license, would be a good bet. What a mistake !!!!
After fitting them on my 16' stock alloy rims , I noticed 10-15% milleage drop, the ride become noisy , un safe, the braking distance increased , side responsiveness is weak , the feeling is the car is riding on jelly. BUT , the most annoying thing was the beat noise , because they were not round, after visiting 4 different auto services ,locally, they all admittetd that the tires , all of them, was not perfectely round.
After less than 1 week , I rushed back to the shop to give ( throw ) them back.
Another mistake , because they can't refund /replace the tyres , unless the Michelin service team will inspect and declare the tyres as faulty.
Never I will buy again that brand for my Toyota , even Michelin tyres I will try to avoid, due to monopoly tendences it shows.
