Fuel efficiency ratings are terrible


There's actually no such thing as 'Fuel Efficient Tyres'. The reason these are stated as lower efficiency is because they're relatively soft compound tyres. They offer decent grip (especially in the dry, and for the money). 'Fuel Efficient Tyres' refer to low rolling resistance, which basically means poor grip, poor braking, and poor handling. The 4 tyres are the only things that separate the car from the road, they're the only parts which make contact with the road. You don't want poor grip. You'd be better off going a couple of PSI higher than usual (not advisable in the wet though) if you're interested in saving fuel. That and maybe keeping you car weight as low as possible by removing unnecessary items from it, and driving as efficiently as you can. Don't mean to preach

I actually think it's a decent price, £136.94 delivered, for x4 205 55 16 tyres... and with code EBAYPR18 it's even cheaper at £123.25. Hot from me.

P.S "Price shown is for a complete set of 4 tyres, you pay for 3 and get the 4th free".
You have to add only 1 item to the basket (3+1 tyres) and check out

Fuel efficiency ratings are terrible


have you looked up what difference it actually makes? a set of four tyres with an A rating will save “up to” 80 litres of fuel over their lifetime compared to tyres with a G rating. what’s that, about £25 a tyre in saved fuel?

on the plus side, these tyres mean I can go around corners a lot faster, so no need to slow down (saves my brakes) and accelerate again (saving fuel).

These tyres don’t last that long, i replace mine every couple of years but it’s money well spent.
I find Toyo tyres are too soft and don't last long, similar to Yokohama.
Absolute perfection for high grip in nice warm climate.

But in the wet they are so sketchy. Had them on a modified Mini Cooper S and didn't enjoy driving in the wet at all.
I love Toyo tyres but have been unable to get R27 so selected an alternative
Jeezus. Not cheap for the size I need.
Ok you get one free but what do you do with it? I only need 5 tyres but i supposeif you need all 4 then this seems like a great deal.

Took the plunge on a size that hopefully won't cause me any problems - famous last words.
How much weight does the EU tyre rating classification hold true?

Would this be worse than something like Roadstone(budget brand) that has an A and B rating for wet grip and fuel efficiency?

Wear rate is particularly high on these in fairness. Worth factoring into the price. They also seem to drop off in grip quite dramatically around 3-4 mm. I know all tyres do, but these more so I'd say.

They're not great in the wet, but I wouldn't go as far as to say they're bad in the wet. They offer premium sport tyre grip in the dry, mid-range grip in the wet, and no grip whatsoever in the snow. The biggest problem I have with T1-Rs is the spongy side walls. Unless you're running very hard sport suspension, they feel pretty lifeless under hard cornering.
any website which gives accurate tyre sizes for cars? this is a fantastic deal but want to make sure its the right tyres. cant seem to find the user manual.

Lucky we live in a nice dry country then!

I put these on my previous car about a year or so ago, and removed them 2 weeks later.
Have a look at the reviews before you buy these

tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyr…htm

Some snippets

But it's on damp or moist roads where the true, terrifying nature of these tyres really comes alive. There is no consistency in grip at all and the tyres are prone to just let go completely. There's no sign of warning that the tyres are losing grip, they just go from making a vague effort of having grip to giving up entirely, all in the space of a split second

or

Well... i had a set of these tyres fitted on the front of my 200hp FWD car and at first was slightly unimpressed at the levels of dry grip... then one day it rained.

The oxford English dictionary does not contain a single word to describe how bad this devil spawn of a tyre performs when faced with any type of moisture. I had as much control as my 3 yr old nephews RC car on our laminate kitchen floor.

Turning the steering wheel on any kind of wet roundabout resulted in certain under steer whereby my car would just carry on in a straight line, comparable to your Xbox controller batteries running out mid corner online on forza motorsport.

I had these on for 1 month and removed them, straight line acceleration had my front wheels spinning more than an autistic kids fidget spinner throughout the whole of the 2017 craze.

Id buy them again if held at gunpoint to do so, and would highly recommend them to my ex girlfriend.


or

Had these already fitted onto my Leon FR! Never again. Can not work out why people think these should go on anything more powerful than a shopping trolley. Wet grip=lethal, dry= bumb clenching. Possibly one of the worst tyres I have ever had on a car. A week after buying the car with these on had Pirelli nero's fitted. Avoid unless you like death.

I did say they offer decent grip in the dry. They're really not great in the wet, but I wouldn't say they were horrible. Just my opinion. I've driven them on 300bhp 9-3, a Golf VR6, and Seat Leon Cupra. Midrange wet grip in my opinion. Obviously not comparable to a Pirelli P-Zero (as stated in one of those reviews) in any conditions, but you're probably going to pay 3 times as much for P-Zeros.

There may be no such thing as 'fuel efficient tyres' but before discarding this totally it is worth bearing in mind that these Toyos will cost drivers more in fuel than a more 'fuel efficient' tyre such as a Good Year 'efficient grip' or Pirelli cinturato p7 blue for example.
The increase in fuel cost between 'B' Rated efficiency tyres and 'F' Rated Tyres is approx. £150 (all 4 tyres) or £37.50 per tyre based on an expected mileage of 25k miles.
All depends on your driving though I guess , if your tyres usually last around 10k miles (perhaps you do predominantly town driving or perhaps you like your handbrake turns?) then the efficiency is less of an issue and this deal would be perfect.

I'm looking at the cost over the lifetime of the tyres and for me there are better tyres available than the Toyos in this deal when taking into account the fuel saving of £150.

Toyos are working out at £220 fitted for the 4 so the real cost of these will be £370 with the additional fuel over the lifetime of the tyres
Goodyear Efficient grips are £360 fitted for 4.


Conclusion : Good Years / Dunlops will cost more initially but will likely have a longer lifespan and definitely better wet grip (Rated A) than these (Rated E) so will be a more cost effective option for me in the long run.
Its easy to be 'wowed' by cheap prices but factor in the cost of ownership (increased fuel cost) and actual tyre lifespan and this, for me certainly is a false economy.
I have these tyres. First time ive put them on my car. Always had kumhos or continentals before (never buy cheap tyres)

As a matched set on an mgtf that car is the most predictable that car has ever been. Excellent tyres, but probs on certain cars in the 16s since production was moved from their Japanese to Malay production.
Thanks OP, I've been trying for weeks now to remember the name of this company. A friend mentioned how good the TOYO Tyre deals were about a year ago, now I'm getting due so new ones and I could not recall the name. Thanks
£714.38 ....ouch for mine and will stick to what I have
I think n0chex added 4 like I did. I'm tempted but how are they delivered? (I work most days so I'm likely to miss delivery)

And anyone know who will/can fit them and the costs associated with that?

I would not call it bad. More like "predictable".

Really hard to explain it but I'll try.

Normal tyres have a good grip on roundabout, but when you're going to fast you loose the grip completely ending on the kerb.
Like on/off light switch.

T1R feels different. You start feel that you loosing the grip maybe a little bit earlier, but you can feel it and control it.
Moore like light switch with built in smooth dimmer.

I actually liked how do they fell on whet tarmac, but must confirm that they don't last to long - pretty much the same long as most budget tyres.
Right now I have Wanli SA302 (same price tag) in the same car and actually prefer them a little o.ver Toyo

They may go round corners faster in the dry, but in the wet you'll be hunting the nearest ditch!
Ordered. Worth a shot at that price.

That's something I've never seen/heard before - kumho tyres being referred as not cheap!! I would never buy kumho as their quality of tyre is shocking at best - I'd rather have firestone!!
Any tyre with this tread pattern is rubbish in wet. Look at all highest premium tread. Goodyear eagle f1 I still think is one of the best you can get.

Lots of people claim these tyres are bad in the wet, but on my car with my driving style, nothing else comes close - far superior to Goodyear Eagle F1, falken ziex, yokohama, etc.

I do buy the T1Rs with the reinforced sidewall though - maybe that makes a difference?

If you don't make allowances for the fact that it's wet you will, but I've run them on a RWD for years without problems - if people are struggling on FWD cars it probably means their right foot is heavier than it should be in the wet. For every tyre there's someone who loves them and someone who hates them - but it is easier to decide a tyre is to blame than to admit that you've run out of talent!

My take on it (as far as ratings, grip, longevity etc. go) is that you have to decide what characteristics you want - softer rubber will tend to offer more dry grip but wears faster, more grooves/tread blocks will tend to be better in the wet (or at least displace water and reduce risk of aquaplaning) but possibly offer less feel and potentially less grip in dry conditions, more grip will offer slightly reduced fuel economy, noise ratings vary a lot but it depends what kind of driving you do most of and how much you notice it. The other thing as far as rubber hardness goes is that softer rubber may be slightly better in icy/snowy conditions as it will potentially stay supple in slightly lower temperatures BUT really only all season or winter tyres really guarantee that (and the value of winter tyres is a whole other debate in itself). If you like a "spirited" drive go with the grippy but less long lasting, if you tend to drive conservatively go with economy/longevity.
These have a very soft rubber compound and in my experience wear significantly quicker than other brands also wet grip isn't very good.

Not sure what that has to do with my post. I was talking about the nature of so called 'fuel efficient tyres' being a lower rolling resistance. That doesn't mean lower resistant tyres 'aren't' more fuel efficient, but that there is a 'reason' why they're fuel efficient, and that reason is not something desirable on any car; low resistance means low grip. These tyres are sports tyres (although that is questionable I agree), but low grip tyres is 'never' a good idea on any tyre in my opinion, let alone a sports tyre. I'd rather spend an extra £100 on higher grip tyres a year, than spin off the road and into a ditch at 70mph to save a few quid. Like I said, fuel efficient means they have lower grip, and that's not something anyone should be willing to sacrifice for money saving.

Although I agree with wear rate being higher than the average sport tyre. A pair of these on a very high performance car lasted me just over 2000 miles (driven pretty hard obviously)

Thanks OP this is a fantastic price for these tyres and just as I managed to pick up a set of stupidly cheap Autec alloys from Amazon
