Top 3 Hifly HF201 Reviews

Given 35% while driving a Hyundai Tucson (215/65 R16) on a combination of roads for 450 average miles
Four of these tyres were fitted to my Tucson by the previous owner just prior to me purchasing the car. Initially I was pleased that the car came with vitually new tyres. However it soon became clear that HIFLY HF201 tyres have some severe limitations when it comes to basic roadholding and build quality. In short, THESE TYRES ARE DANGEROUS.

The first thing I noticed was the large number of balance weights that had been used on each wheel. This led me to take a close look at the tyres and I immediately noticed a variation in tread depth across the width of the tyres, it varied from 8mm to 4.5mm on all tyres (hence the need for all those balance weights). I used to work for Michelin (Stoke-on-Trent) so I understand how tyres are made, but I can't figure out how the folks at HIFLY have managed to do this. Maybe their vulcanising moulds are just poorly manufactured or unevenly heated. The side walls had a few lumps, nothing too serious but I was suprised to see this on virtually new tyres.

The second thing I noticed was the general poor handling of the car and severe lack of grip on dry roads. Lots of low speed tyre squeal and unintentional wheel spins at junctions. This led me to check the tyre pressures but they were found to be fine (30 psi each). I don't drive like a maniac but I do expect tyres to at least perform to a reasonable standard. Wet roads proved to be even more of a challenge with the final straw being a 180 degree spin at around 25mph on a rounabout near Edinburgh.
Changed all four of the HIFLYs for Uniroyal Rallye4x4 street tyres and the car was immediately transformed into an enjoyable and safe ride.
The lesson here is that you get what you pay for, or in my case you get what the previous owner paid for.
There may well be good tyres out there at the cheaper end of the market but I'm affraid the HIFLY HF201 is NOT one of them.

Audi (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
I didn't actually choose these tyres they were fitted prior to me picking up the car A6 3.0 quattro They are shocking i had the balance checked they were so bad. The car actually vibrates. They are useless under anything but mild driving. Definitely designed for low powered light cars. Took them off fitted pirelli. Totally different car now. Leave them alone the pirelli were only £50 dearer a pair

Given 10% while driving a Toyota Wish (205/65 R15) on mostly town for 2,000 easy going miles
These would have to be the worst tyre I have ever had. The road noise and vibration is like driving on off road 4 wheel drive tyres. Even had to check wheel bearings to see the noise wasn't coming from them. Put on a set of half worn tyres from a friends car and the problems dissapeared straight away. Put my wheels on his car and it had the same issue. I don't know how people can sell these and tell you they are a good tyre and great value for money. Should be a crime to sell them. Tyre shop didn't want to know about them . They have done approx 4,000 Kim's and will never get to do anymore on my car . Avoid them like the plague

Given 27% while driving a Mazda MX5 (195/50 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
I got these on the rear when I bought my MX5-NB, but overall ride is superbumpy, unpredictable, sideways into third gear on wet and they feel sketchy. With still enough thread on them, I am replacing them with Michelin Pilotsport 3, as I want my girlfriend to also be alle to drive the car without ending up in a ditch.

Given 91% while driving a Nissan Juke (225/45 R17) on for 500 miles
I tried two on the front of my SUV and was so impressed I put two more on the back. I had a reputable brand on before and the difference was surprising. The drive was immediately quieter and smoother. I cornered sharply on some of my normal routes and the car stuck to the road in silence where my old tyres would howl at me. Wet weather too they perform very well. Most impressed and happy.

Given 90% while driving a Toyota Camry (215/45 R17) on for 3,900 miles
Brilliant low cost tyres. Cheap does not always mean nasty. Not sure what drugs half of these reviewers are on. Onto my second set after 51000 trouble free kms on my last lot. Great grip and driver feedback. Keep your alignments and rotations done every 10.000 and these tyres last the distance! Pretty low noise on most surfaces too.

We found HIFLY tyres for our Hyundai I 10 very good buy as we do a lot of mileage. We are both retired and travel all over. Had Khumo before but could not afford them.We are very happy with our HIFLY HF 201 tyres.

Given 14% while driving a Saab Automobile 9 5 Aero Wagon (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
These tyres are nothing short of deadly. Had to replace after 2000 miles as they were far too dangerous. Wet and dry handling left major control problems. Almost spun on a roundabout. Tyre squeel when general cornering which is totally unacceptable. Horrendous road noise to the point I had to shout to passengers to hear them, and I'm not joking! The loud humming noise and drone left me fatigued. Swapped them out for Uniroyal Rainsport. Unbelievable difference. Quiet, loads of grip. If I could give these abhorrent tyres a minus 10 I would.

Given 37% while driving a Hyundai i40 sedan (205/60 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Fitted these tyres to my vehicle as I was intending to replace it soon, the Hankook tyres that were fitted were coming to the end of their usable life. As I had not intend keeping the car much longer I did not want to spend to much on tyres, this was a huge mistake compared to the original fitment tyres the Hifly H201's were awful they were compromised in all areas of driving both in the Dry and the Wet, I live in the valleys of south wales where we get more than our fair share of rain if there was anymore than a light shower I lost all confidence the tyres were dangerous in wet conditions especially under braking taking considerably more distance to stop than the Hankook I cannot find any redeeming qualities to these tyres and although very cheap they are a false economy. Also they appeared to be wearing much quicker.

Given 73% while driving a BMW 320i (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Very good tyre for my kind of driving.... a mixture of town and motorway,,, about 12000 miles per annum. good in wet and dry conditions and very smooth with little road noise... have 10000 miles on them and they show about half worn... they are very well priced and would buy again at the price...

Given 76% while driving a Vauxhall (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 16,000 average miles
These tyres were fitted by the dealer when I bought the car three years ago to get it through its MOT Test. I've driven it for 16000 miles and have just replaced them with 2.5 mm tread (my limit) left. It has been a mix of motorway and town driving and I don't consider my driving style to be "progressive", "sporty" or "lunatic".
16000 miles on a heavy front wheel drive car seems reasonable to me from a cheap tyre. No wheel spin when accelerating hard from a standstill into traffic (don't drop the clutch and just floor the accelerator pedal).
Never had any exciting moments of aquaplaning but then very few people do (if you are Aqua planing you have no control over direction until the tyre bites of its own accord or you run out of water)
Just replaced with a pair of Avon ZV5's and the biggest difference is the reduction of road noise.
Would I buy them again? If I couldn't afford the extra £20 for Avons - yes. But because I can I won't.

Given 20% while driving a Acura TL TYPE S (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 18,000 easy going miles
This is hands down the worst tire I've ever used. After getting the car newly aligned I had a set of these installed. They lasted only 18k miles and were the most noisy tire ive ever used. They were down right dangerous driving in any wet conditions, no group at all!. Terrible.. never again.
