    Questions and Answers for the Hifly HF805

    2018-03-18 - 235/40 R18 Challenger DSRT`s on a 2008 Mondeo 2.0 petrol.. What`s the correct tyre pressure? Have tried 28 psi front and 32 psi Front ( as recommended by Ford ) and none of these pressures give correct wear. Always end up with excessive wear in the center of tread?

    Tyre pressures are manufacturer dependant, so the correct tyre pressure is set by the vehicle manufacturer. That said, centre tread wear usually indicates overinflation.

    2019-10-24 - Is the Hifly HF805 tyre suitable for gravel roads, all terrain?

    The HF805 is a summer tyre, so while it can be used lightly on gravel, it is not recommended to fit it if you'll spend a lot of time off road.

    Top 3 Hifly HF805 Reviews

    Given 79% while driving a Honda Integra R DC5 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 40,000 spirited miles
    Have 205 55 R16 fitted to my Integra.
    I avoid hard braking but love cornering at speed. I inflate my tyres to 38PSI front and 36PSI rear.
    I've managed to get 40,000 miles or 65,000km from my set of Hifly HF805s. I believe they'll make it to 80,000km.

    So far, I can see a lot of negative comments about these tyres... maybe because they're Chinese and it's ok to vent racist comments about anything Chinese. Maybe it's the car... like the guy whose Yaris is spinning it's front wheels.

    The HF805 is a summer tyre. There's no ice in summer.

    On dry and wet, braking and cornering are absolutely excellent. The performance is actually amazing. Durability has been great.

    I'm surprised at the number of ignorant people who think tyres are made with secret recipes that only some manufacturers know.

    If I use a slick tyre in the wet, it doesn't matter whether it's a Michelin or a Pirelli. If it's a soft compound it's going to give better grip but wear faster than a hard compound. Wider tyres give better lateral grip. Thinner side walls give better handling but are harsher.

    The HF 805's pattern, compound are more than appropriate for the list of ordinary cars I've seen in this thread.

    Given 39% while driving a Volkswagen Caddy maxi 200bhp (235/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
    These tyres would be acceptable if we never got rain……. as in 365 days of dry weather! In the wet they are dangerous!! Uneven damp roads they are dangerous! I would never want to attempt emergency braking in the wet with these. Dry grip is ok but the comfort is rubbish and the side wall offers absolutely no rim protection. These tyres came with the brand new alloys that came with the van- so not sure who exactly bought them, either the alloy manufacturer or the dealer I bought the van from- either way it’s obviously because they are cheap. I’ve replaced these with Michelin crossclimate- far superior and worth the extra cost.

    This tyres are risky. First, no rim protection, at all. So any accidental curb touches leave their mark Handling is atrocious. The tires kept pulling the steering wheel any which way depending on road conditions Very weak sidewall. I ran some rumble strips at speed and shredded two tires. Road noise, better amp your radio Wet handling is really bad. Only positive us that they seem to have good tread even after 15000kms

    Given 37% while driving a Suzuki swift sport (205/50 R17) on mostly country roads for 600 average miles
    These were fitted just before we picked up my wifes Suzuki Swift Sport. After 350k's of highway use I had to emergency brake due to a car pulling out in front of me, t-boned them. ABS tried but the grip was virtually non-existent. Had the car repaired and after 1000k's I'm replacing them as they are not a good tyre at all. The grip is not great in either wet or dry and they ride rough. Also seeing out edge wear even though the wife doesn't drive like a looney. Yes, alignment has been checked and it's fine. Seriously, don't buy these, spend a bit extra and get decent tyres.

    Given 47% while driving a Volkswagen Transporter (255/45 R18) on mostly town for 7,000 average miles
    These came fitted new to our Transporter camper conversion. Rears have worn well but the fronts are dreadful, we have covered 7,000 miles (thanks Covid!) and the fronts are now on the wear bar, but only in the middle of the tread pattern. The outer bars still have life in them. Pressures and tracking have all been checked so they must just be not great tyres. Will not be replacing like for like..

    Given 46% while driving a Alfa Romeo 159 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    I am on my third set of 4 tyres and these tyres, for a very good price, are ok but you can do so much better for an extra few pounds. Dry handling is ok abait the tyre walls are soft, wet handling when worn in is acceptable although braking distances are extended. The Hi Fly's will wear quickly depending on your car and driving style, when worn in the wet these are dangerous, at 70 mph on a wet motorway the rear aqua planed and very nearly lost control, when new this is not an issue. I am not purchasing these again this time. On my old Golf GTI's, Sciroccos, and Alfas I used to use Falken as the best mid priced brand, Falken are no longer a mid but premium brand and for FK510 we are looking at £450 fitted, after speaking with Micheldever Tyres ( UK distributer of many brands inc Falken) they advised Kuhmo 71 would be a good choice but I didn't like them. So after many years of using performance tyres this is my list of good performing tyres at a decent price, most expensive first (225/50/17y xl). 1. Nokian Z line (Now Nokian Powerproof) £100/£105 fitted. 2. Falken FK453 (now would be FK510, the ZE914 wasn't bad either. 2. Fulda Sport Control. £100/£105 fitted 4. Debica Presto UHP 2 (Goodyear) £85 fitted. 4. Sava Intensa UHP (Goodyear, so little between the two). £85 fitted 4. Roadstone Eurovis 04 (Roadstone made by Nexan. Really good for the money and would buy again). What have I just ordered for my car, Debica Presto UHP 2.

    Given 40% while driving a Holden Commodore VE (275/30 R20 W) on mostly town for 0 average miles
    Had them fitted to the rear of my Holden VE SV6. I live in Auckalnd, New Zealand. the rears wore out with in a year having them fitted (came fitted with vehicle when purchased). They're on a daily vehicle, driven to work and home 15-20min max driving, by the time I changed them. The majority of the tread was gone. Driving in the wet, felt like it was going to kick out on certain road surfaces, mainly the smoother roads it would slightly slide.
    I've had budget tyres on my vehicles over the years, these would have to be the worse due to them wearing out very fast and being dangerous in wet conditions. If you're on a tight budget, purchase at your own risk.

    Given 81% while driving a Lexus Rc 350 (265/35 R19 V) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
    I had Bridgestones which were factory fitted on my Lexus RC350 F sport. At almost $450 each, I got 2 HIFLY' 805 plus $150 change for the price of 1 Bridgestone. I only changed the front 2 as typically you get what you pay for. I can't fault them after about 15,000kms travelled already. They still look new except where I smacked one against the kerb but the tyres are always inflated correctly (Lexus has tyre pressure sensors) and I push the car hard sometimes. Road noise is maybe marginally higher but there is no compromise to handling in any conditions.

    Given 57% while driving a Fiat Panda (195/45 R15) on a combination of roads for 19,000 spirited miles
    Take my review with huge dose of distance and humour, please. Okay? ;)
    Fiat Panda doesn't sounds serious enough for most of people. Especially if modified. But yeah, I'm the owner of Panda 100HP deeply modified. 240HP from 1.4 engine sent on 15" rims which usually wraps the asphalt and ignites rubber ripped off from tyres ;) So generally absolute craziness ;) I've had fitted looooads of rubbers and surprisingly quite often 'big famous circles' couldn't make it any better than Chinese brands. So for me it wasn't a good point to spend pile of tough earned coins if I could have the same or sometimes even better effect for much less. Toyo Proxes or Goodyear Eagle in my opinion the biggest 15" tyre crap ever if to choose for track day. Falken doing very well on dry and Uniroyal on wet from 'big brands'. But in everyday life, for ordinary people or all those with tight budget and looking for 15" rubbers, they can stick with Highfly HF805's with no fear for everyday miles. Good quality as for the price you need to pay for. But, of course, your choice is in your hands... ;) It's my choice too because I am saving money when I changing tyres 1-2 times per month according to my mad driving style... :P
    BTW looking for decent 15" rubbers for serious track days? Google it and count for around 1k per set. Life hurts bro! ;)
