    Hi All,
    My local garage has got an offer on for HI-FLY 225 40 18 tyres. Has anyone had an experience these? What are they like?

    Thanks

    In my experience, i wouldn't bother with the cheap tyres, in the dry they'll be half decent but it's when it's wet you'll notice that they are ****.

    I have just had to replace some faulty 'Arrow Speed' tyres which i got from Kwikfit for a decent price, bit the bullet and got something decent in the end, they were more money but i got a good discount as my mate works there. £157.50 they retail at (apparently), i paid £100 per tyre fitted - Uni-royal Rain sport 2.

    912s are pretty good, used them on my previous cars.

    £35!

    If you take a look at some of the tyre tests over the last few years and see how some of these score,it's quite shocking.

    Who would name a tyre HI-FLY! LOL. And then who would buy them!! £35 for a 225/40/18 tyre is unbelievable! As above, Falken are a good budget make.

    Welcome to the rest of your life. If anything is too cheap its usually too good to be true.

    Glad to see you got the Falkens.

    Falkens all the way. I had Conti Sport Contact3 on my A3 when I got it. Worn down so quick. Got some Falkens on now and grip is the same but for half the price!
