Laufenn S Fit EQ+

The new Laufenn S FIT EQ+ for the performance segment is equipped with an advanced Hydro-Flow block tread pattern which, together with its four straight main grooves and streamlined tread block arrangement effectively reduces aquaplaning. Furthermore, the use of an improved second-generation silica compound has led to a significant reduction in braking distance, especially on wet roads. The S FIT EQ+ also achieves optimised performance and good stability even at higher speeds thanks to reinforced tread bars which ensure greater block stiffness.

Top 3 Laufenn S Fit EQ Plus Reviews

Given 81% while driving a Honda City 1.5 VTI (195/50 R15) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
Using this S Fit EQ+ for last 2 years, this new brand are not familiar but Hankook do the good job for cheaper price. It has good traction on the dry road but less on the wet, but i appreciate with the comfort and road noise reduction. Maybe we must have attention with the side wall are not too firm

These tyres are my best positive surprise of the year, although driven only couple of hundreds of km since new. Dry grip and handling is great, wet - good enough. Great feedback. Unfortunately one tire has a hump (consumer complaint). I have direct comparison with Toyo TR1 and Vredestein Sportrac 5 (same size, same car, same conditions). Dry grip and especially traction of Laufenns is light-years ahead of Vreds. TR1 are very close to S FIT EQ+ with regard to grip and traction (TR1 may be a bit better, maybe due to EQ+ being too new), but TR1 seem to wear on eyes...

I am a loyal customer of Nexen NBlue HDplus tires (soft, quiet and comfortable, affordable). This time I urgently needed 2 tires for the front axle. I chose Laufenn S FIT EQ+ ...and I did not regret it. For some amount, they are cheaper than Nexen, they are only slightly harder and have stronger walls. The noise in the cabin is not greater, at least for now. Nice grip on the road. Placed before leaving for Greece on vacation. Traveled 3,500 km so far and I can say that they are a pleasant surprise. When I drove alone, I pushed them almost to the limit, everything was ok. Laufenns are the Hankook group, their factory is in Indonesia, and these mine are Made in Hungary, their Hungarian branch and that is good, I prefer EU tyres. So, tires that withstand several days of torture at +40 degrees Celsius. The price was around 47 euros per piece. Dimensions 195-55-R15, 85V.

Latest Laufenn S Fit EQ Plus Reviews

Given 91% while driving a Audi A4 Avant B9 (225/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 509 average miles
These tyres when brand new come with 7.6mm of tread unlike some well known brands that come with 6.5mm. Compared with the michelin crossclimate 2 which I have just taken off I am getting the same mpg which shows they have a good rolling resistance. Plenty of grip in both the wet and dry. I am going to use these all summer and report back later in the year. Don't be fooled into buying branded tyres when you can get good tyres like these at a fraction of the price. I do recommend these
