Questions and Answers for the Hifly VIGOROUS AT601

2016-11-19 - Just got a set of AT601 have not fitted them yet, can you tell me if they are directional fitting. can,t find anything on the tire to indicate this but somehow I feel they should be. Thanks

If the HiFly AT601 is directional it will have a small arrow on each sidewall indicating the direction of travel, if it's asymmetric it will have an "inside" and "outside" printed on the sidewalls.

my opinion on these tyres is very good I have just got back from a 5500k trip on some off our toughest roads in sa sand dunes mud rocky you name it and never had any problems at all. very happy I rate them better than the last two setts of cooper tyres. cooper tyers will never be seen on any of my cars agan.only because I have had no luck with them at all.

Will never buy these again. Tires are less than 7 months old and they are separating. Also have a friend that bought these tires he had had the same issues. Had to have all six replaced with around the same mileage as mine. If fact I got mine after he bought his thinking they were a good deal. My truck had 234,569 miles on it when installed now it has 247,990 so they are of poor construction from my experience

I bought 4 new Hifly Vigorous about 3 1/2 years ago. I dont drive that vehicle all the time and I dont haul anything heavy in it. The tires still look almost new. I would say 90% tread still left. No cracking or uneven wear. But i started getting a vibration and it got worse and worse. I went to the tire shop and they pointed out that 3 of the 4 tires have big bubbles on them. All 3 tires went bad on the same day. I recommend buying a different brand of tire.

Worst tires I've ever purchased. After 3000 miles they began to cup. After only 15,500 miles, the sidewalls began to crack badly.

I just Had these fitted last week. Seriously thought ok I have that brand on my caravan been no issues . don't run them on your Vehicle if you do abit of bush work . side walls are soft as butter. yes on road they seem good and quiet but so soft you can see they will wear down quick. get what you pay for Im afraid . I have used 5 plugs already to get out of trouble and Im sticking to our main track which hasn't caused any problems for the last tyres and old farm utes

(225/45 R17) on for 0 miles
I bought these tires new for my chevy Silverado 2500 HD two years ago. My truck had a slight vibration issue after install. Took the vehicle back to the tire shop had them rebalanced and alignment done even though it didn't need the alignment. I use my truck for personal use only so it gets driven little (except for camping, fishing, weekend around town). Vibration issue became worse. Had the driveline rebalanced, new shocks, rotors turned (replaced tons of stuff) thinking it was the truck...WRONG! It was the tires. 2 of tires developed huge bulges. Out of warranty on the tires so I'm out the $ and need to replace all the tires. DO NOT BUY THESE TIRES. They seemed like a great buy at the time and the tread looks aggressive for an AT tire. Fooled me!
There are certain things in life one should not skimp on. 1. Toilet paper. 2. Trash bags. 3. Comfortable vehicle 4. TIRES.

Mark my words, you will regret this buy!

Isuzu DMAX (245/70 R16) on a combination of roads for 4,000 easy going miles
Replaced front tyres of Dmax with 2 Hifly's before a big trip (Brisbane to Birdsville and return). The last couple of hundred into and out of Birdsville is dirt road, and these did the job just like the big brands. There were no grip issues and handled the sandy ground to Big Red easily. On the way back, we passed many many 4x4's and caravans with burst tyres- ours had no issues whatsoever. When we arrived back in Brisvegas, I checked the undercarriages of van and car as well as tyres. Lots of stone chips and dents on chassis etc, but the tyres were still in good nick. I thought of using these 2 Hifly's for spares and put a new set of Yoko's on for the trip to the cape, but I'm thinking that these critters did quite well, all things considering. A bit noisy on the road, and have not hit much wet with them, but I can' complain for the price I paid. I was fully loaded, 3 ton vehicle and 3 ton van.

Given 10% while driving a Chevrolet Silverado 2500 (265/70 R17) on mostly country roads for 40 easy going miles
I purchased four of these tires and all four separated with less than 10,000 miles, worst tire I have ever used.
Purchased them at Tire Kingdom who refused to stand behind the tire, just tried to sell me other brands after
The third and fourth tire separated. I'm gonna seek legal counsel about what can be done.

OK, here is the good with the bad.
The good is that they are a decent tire at a great price. They are air pressure sensitive but the ride is good with 45 PSI front and 40 PSI rear for my P/U empty. Note: you must air up to haul a load (80 PSI). I drive about 60% city, 30% highway and 10% off off road (Ca. desert). Tires work very well at the right air pressure in the desert (35-30 PSI). Just returned from a 90 mile off road trip over 2 days and never even hinted of getting stuck (sand & rocks etc).
The bad is that they are very noisy on the road, are cupping a little and are wearing fast. I am guessing they will be worn out at around 30K miles or so. On road handling is only OK. I might buy them again because of the price.
By the way do not ever buy Michelin truck tires. Before the Hifly's I has a set of Michelin LTX tires and 3 out of 4 had bad tread separation on the same trip with 50% tread remaining. After 2 weeks of jumping through hoops with Michelin they voided my warranty saying it was because I had Armor-all on the tires. That's right the excuse was because i had Armor-all on the tires. Went up their chain of command and they all refused to honor the warranty. The tire rep at Allen Tire said Michelin tire never honors a warranty - period.
