Achilles ATR Sport tyres

Postby njabulo » Wed Apr 30, 2014 11:31 am

Not very impressive for a tyre that hasnt even done 30 000km and is only used for normal driving is not raced...btw alignment and balancing are done every two months so that is no excuse

Could be a dud tyre bud. Know plenty of guys that'll disagree with you. I got around 40-50k km out of mine. Would've gotten more if I'd rotated them often and done wheel alignment often

Could also have been unseen damage, SA roads aren't in the greatest condition.

True MrM, Dolfius
Well I have done more than 20Ks on mine - i dont have a problem with them esp on the wet.
Still have to rotate them - cant believe I never had a chance to.
I also like Yokohamas - got close to 90 000KM on them - but then they were finished.
