  • Positive - Good straight aquaplaning resistance, low rolling resistance, low purchase price.

2015 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 13th of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Acceptable braking performance
  • Negative - High rolling resistance. Unstable behaviour in an emergency situation
  • Overall - The Goodride SA37 is very unstable and are difficult to drive on a wet surface. In an emergency, the rear tyres lose grip too easily. In the dry the tyres are too slow in response to steering and the rear wheels again can easily go into a skid. Noise level is low, but the tyres are relatively rigid. Also a high rolling resistance.

    I was used to building brands like Goodyear and Continental but given the layoff plans they made in France I turned to Asian tires like nakang, goodride, linglong. The SA37 is a very safe tire, good grip on wet ground and excellent on dry ground.
    On average I do 8000km with a new set of tires on the front axle.

    Given 10% while driving a BMW 320D (235/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    After putting these summer tyres back after the winter, I very quickly noticed a vibrating effect. At this point the tyres are only about 1000 km used. The vibration is caused by the tyres, which are not round. The tyres were clearly wobbling in the balancing machine, and causing the vibration to the car. A lot of people have had the same problem with this tyre, and therefore I advise to stay away from them. If lucky, you could end with somewhat decent tyres for the money, but I feel like it's not worth the lottery (and hassle). I'll get rid of these horrible tyres and get some better ones.

    These tires are fine for the money. What I find especially lacking is the road feedback. you dont feel anything. While that would be great if comfort is what you are after. but they are not comfortable at all. you feel all the bumps in the road. They do have pretty good dry grip. Much better then for example the Michelin 195/65/15 Primacy i got previously on the car. Other aspects the Michelin tires did much better. Next time i would go for Nexen, Nankang or Toyo.

    These are very good tires (especially for the price) and I don't understand most of the negative review tests. I have been driving Goodride SA37's through summer and winter and both good and bad weather conditions and I have never had problems with them, I'm on my 3rd set of tires now! The only thing is that they tend to wear out quick, but it's a soft performance tire so this is normal, and for the price per tire it's certainly not bad at al!!

    I found these tyres to be excellent in heavy to light rain. When the road was just wet with little water, not quite as good. I drive an automatic Citroen Grand C4 Picasso and these tyres are almost as good as the Michelin tyres it came with and at a fraction of the price.

    Well,they are very quiet on the road. The previous tyres which was an other brand, were noisy on a wet road but this Goodride I do not hear them.

    Good value for the money I bought them, 86 £ for 2 . Chinese brand, were good tyres. I`ve done 20000 miles in 1 year with them, 90% on highway (on a front-wheel-drive) .
    I would not buy them again just because these tyres wear out fast .

    Had these on just the fronts.
    Went up in width and my first impressions was amazing.
    Then came to wet driving and they are incredibly bad. you just cant tell when its about to slip or anything of the sort
    Its either full grip in a corner or nothing.
    Road noise did increase as well vs other budget tyers I had before
    They are pretty good at smoothing out potholes ect consiering they are only a 35 wall tyre
    For a cheap tyre in the dry they are pretty good.
    Just terrible in the rain from my experience
    If you dont care about performance and just want a crusing tyre these would be pretty good other than the increase in road noise
    Again will state that only front tyers with these

    Given 57% while driving a Audi Audi A6 Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (245/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 12,427 average miles
    Last year bought 4x tyres for 4WD.
    Start OK in year 2018, but 2000 km later started to feel vibration - result > tyre jumping along the grooves in wheel balancer.
    To warranty = new tyres. Put them on and 2000km was ok. Drived 12 000 km (year total). Tyre worn maybe 1 to 1,5mm. So this far -very good result, despite the warranty case. And with this - good grip in dry and wet (even speeds 180 km/h +), and very good grip, tyres lasted well, low noise level.

    Then winter and this year 2019 put them on. Almost first kilometers - vibration again. Went to first tyre shop to balance rims - everything ok. Started to look at car axle drive - yeah, few parts needed to be changed, but after the change still vibration and started massive tyre wear. I don't know, 1000 km = 1 mm wear? That was crazy. Went to dealer to 3D wheel alignment. They regulated front wheels a bit but everything was almost ok. And still - massive tyre wear and tyres started to loose grip. Milled asphalt - I couldn't hold the steering wheel > car was all over the road. Ant the noise - omg. Like driving with mud tyre. Tyre looked fine but this year I could drive 8000 km and result was (tyre had 8 mm when new, 6,5-7 mm when I put them to storage after 12000 km) and this when I threw them away 1,3 mm was left. So worst case = 6,5 mm to 1,3 mm in 8000 km = that is crazy. At this level, there was no point to send them to warranty - pointless waste of my time.
    And rear tyres - inner sides worn to staircase damage. When you look at side - tread is like staircase (stairs).

    Yes - when new - good grip, good feedback, good handling (8 out of 10). But crazy worn level. Tread worn to stairs. Lasted 20 000 km total and were worn to 1,3mm. And within these 20 000 km, maybe I got 5000 km without any vibration etc.
    So the result - I WILL NEVER BUY THESE TYRES AGAIN. Maybe tyre width (195 to 225 maybe lasts), but 245 tyre width this brand is garbage.
    Replaced them to another company brand. Went to car dealer 3D wheel alignment - everything was superb, no adjustments needed at all. And ride is smooth, without any vibration, no tyre worn at all and i have done already 3500 km with new ones.
    So again, Goodride SA37 - worst tyre ever. Keep away from it.

    Given 79% while driving a Vauxhall Astra GSi (215/40 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 14,000 average miles
    Fitted on the front of a modified Astra GSi Turbo.

    I always used to go with known/quality brands but these SA37's I got were very good, especially for the price, unbeatable value. Fitted to very quick car, dry grip was very good, wet grip was good, loss of grip was progressive and gave warning unlike some tyres that aggressively let go. Excellent economy on long runs and wore well with a combined motorway and urban driving.

    Always worth reading reviews and checking ratings of economy/budget tyres. Sometimes they are worth it and in this instance, I'd buy again.

    Just bought the tires after having trouble with three sets of Nokian Zline which started cracking just after one summer. I bought these Goodride after reading Autobild review where they got really good review.
    I am usually skeptical regarding Asian tires, always went with premium tires but this time I was blown away.

    I bought the tires for 52€/tire and I really cant find anything bad with them, they are good in every condition.
    My car is tuned and a front wheel drived car which usually tends to swirl and slip during acceleration, but I don't really have a problem with these tires.

    Update to my previous comments (at 200 miles) Have had these on the car for about 4500 miles now which has been a mixture of dry, ice, snow and rain.
    These are surprisingly good on snow - I was genuinely expecting them to be borderline dangerous but they're pretty well behaved
    As good as any other summer tyre on ice (lethal) .
    In the wet, these seem to have more grip than they do in the dry.
    In the dry, these were excellent when first fitted for the first few thousand miles. They remain good under braking (have never lost grip under braking) but are now prone to spin/squeak/make the traction control lose its mind a fair bit if i need to pull off quickly.

    All in all, as good as any other budgets i've run on.
