Writing about the Hifly HP801
Driving on mostly town
for 1500 average
I was looking for a cheap tire to get my car through its roadworthy certificate. My idea was cheap tire now and replace with a top brand in a year or so. These tires though have been a surprise package. They grip well in wet and dry, they have some road noise but way quieter than youâ€™d expect from a budget tire. My only gripe is urban fuel efficiency. Iâ€™ve lost 2km per litre of efficiency using these tires but thatâ€™s not the end of the world. It equates to maybe 100km of range on a full tank (urban). That for my vehicle equates to 6 full tanks of fuel where I would have had 5 on brand tires. At an average $80 per tank of fuel it would therefore take a few years (based on my usage) at least before they start to become less value economically.
So minor gripe with the fuel economy but overall a damn good buy
