while driving a
(215/70 R15) on
a combination of roads
Worst tyres i have put on a 4wd ever (2010 suzuki jimny with 7 inch steels wheels), had approx 20+ other sets of various brands, mostly coopers(great but none in my size) . Almost no wet road grip, poor dry road, hard as nails and feel like made with concrete sidewalls and tread. Done 3000kms, and showing almost zero wear, most factory moulding dimples have still not worn off, front or rear. Even have them now down to 20psi in steps from original 32, trying to improve ride, with no luck. Even tried rebalanced as well, but did not require any changes to weights.
Also seem to get badly out of balance sitting on my rock drive in frosts, and only return to usual less horrible ride after they have warmed up for 20+kms. And never try corning hard on wet roads, or you will very quickly find how little grip they have, nasty nasty junk.
Replacing with toyo open country AT ii next week.
