Need feedback on triangle tyres on boosted car
« on: September 15, 2015, 02:40:58 PM »
Need feedback on triangle tyres on boosted car ...
 ....Thread worn rate
 ... Any Side wall issue
..... Grip especially in wet conditions
....how safe you feel driving...
 I have only purchase a set tyres once from tyre warehouse... Was the branded Goodride... I think same tyre was rebranded Westlake or something ..anyway all four tyres had radial crack along the side walls, I had at first thought it was my wheel rubbing on something when turning..however couldn't find no explanation as to why..later notice tht rear was the same,check vehicles with same tyre n they all had same radila crack ... I change dem immediately. There was a lot of thread remaining on tyres ...I notice shortly after same tyres where rebranded ...I inquired and heard tht triangle tyres side wall are now re-enforce .... Hence feedback request

DON'T BUY EM. If you going to be speeding and worried about your tires, why not spend a little more and go with a tried and proven brand rather than save a buck and buy a tyre from a company learning to make performance tyres.
I wouldn't have missed a thing... not one minute of it.

Furthermore...

The single most import factor you should look for in a tyre that you are concerned about going fast in is the speed rating of that tyre. It indicates the maximum speed that tyre should be going at before performance suffers (you driving faster than the tyre was designed to give you traction or rigidity for)  and possible tyre failure can happen.

L   75 mph   120 km/h   Off-Road & Light Truck Tires
M   81 mph   130 km/h   Temporary Spare Tires
N   87 mph   140km/h   
P   93 mph   150 km/h   
Q   99 mph   160 km/h   Studless & Studdable Winter Tires
R   106 mph   170 km/h   H.D. Light Truck Tires
S   112 mph   180 km/h   Family Sedans & Vans
T   118 mph   190 km/h   Family Sedans & Vans
U   124 mph   200 km/h   
H   130 mph   210 km/h   Sport Sedans & Coupes
V   149 mph   240 km/h   Sport Sedans, Coupes & Sports Cars
W   168 mph   270 km/h   Exotic Sports Cars
Y   186 mph   300 km/h   Exotic Sports Cars

"While a Z-speed rating still often appears in the tire size designation of these tires, such as 225/50ZR16 91W, the Z in the size signifies a maximum speed capability in excess of 149 mph, 240 km/h; the W in the service description indicates the tire's 168 mph, 270 km/h maximum speed.
225/50ZR16   in excess of 149 mph, 240 km/h
205/45ZR17 88W   168 mph, 270 km/h
285/35ZR19 99Y   186 mph, 300 km/h

Most recently, when the Y-speed rating indicated in a service description is enclosed in parentheses, such as 285/35ZR19 (99Y), the top speed of the tire has been tested in excess of 186 mph, 300 km/h indicated by the service description as shown below:
285/35ZR19 99Y   186 mph, 300 km/h
285/35ZR19 (99Y)   in excess of 186 mph, 300 km/h"

I say invest in a good set of Kumho, Dunlops, sumitomo or higher.

I know this is an old topic.
But tested and proven by myself. Triangle tires have no grip what so ever in rain. Almost cost me my car
Looking towards the future

The only good thing I say about Triangle is that it lasts long due to the hard compound and even thread wear after numerous launches.
