Bhai just buy some hifly. I use to only run bridgestone and maxxis. Tried out hifly cuz cash was tight, did not regret it. Hifly vigorous ht 265 70 16. Great wet and dry traction, no noise, excellent treadwear for half the cost of other brands. $650 each brand new.

It's about mileage. How much kilometres you do?

http://www.sailuntires.ca/PLT/SVR.html

bought a used set 305/50/20 when I upgraded to 20" rims just to see how the ride quality was, instead of buying new 20' tyres and possibly not liking the big rim ride
the used set I bought was kinda beat out, but I squeezed 6 months outta them and the f&^king tyres perform wayyy better than my Firestone Destination A/T. Sailun was holding the road real good in the wet, even with low treads

went and bought a new set from racetrack $1000 ea
You know you are comparing an SUV tyre to an all terrain tyre right. Just as good as it works on road it will fall down even faster when you go off it.... But with 20's I doubt you doing much off-roading...


yea, i know its HT im comparing against AT, but having had other AT like Pirelli Scorpions, Toyo Open Country and Kumho Road Venture AT, the Firestone Destinations were crap performance for such a highly rated tyre. the totall loss of traction in the wet with the Firestones were a big disappointment, but the sailuns, even when beat out and on the change markers were giving better traction than Firestone with 50% tread

no to much offroading on the 20's, just the occasional wet grass and off pavement parking but with 305/50/20 that are equivalent to 32x12.5 i did get a 2" lift over the stock 265/70/16 and with the full treads available cuz they new, they working where the firestones used to as well (cuz even with those, there was little offroad)

VexXx Dogg wrote:~1 year report on the Maxxis AT 771:

Put about 12K on them so far.

Good wet traction, better than equivalent dunlops.
Good hydroplane handling.
Decent wear to date, minimal noise.

I don't mud too much, but when I take my daily shitty back road to avoid traffic, it handles it pretty good through the muddy parts.

I'm impressed with this tyre.
18 month report on maxxis at 771.
Excellent wear.
20k total on them.
Still have 7-8 mm before the wear indicator bar.

I'm using 275/65. Anything bigger and I think it would rub on the inner mudguard. It's like 1-2mm away as is.

I'm on factory suspension.
