tyres..again. Routeway RY26+ V rated anyone tried them?

Recommended Posts

So, looking at 205/60R14 tyres, and all are 'budget' type. Found this one, which doesn't seem to appear in most searches/reviews. They are Chinese of course, and seem to better EU specs than the rest in terms of wet weather.

Has anybody tried them? They are Routeway EcoBlue RY26+ 88V available from EQ Automotive or Blackcircles(after some digging).

Thoughts?

thanks, Clive

just checked reifendirekt.ch for Switzerland, they also have only 'budget' brands, will check  and let you know what I can find out (there is another Elite owner in Switzerland, will also ask him about the tyres)

So just put these tyre on my car today. Mine are 195/65R15. So far there is a great difference from my previous one which were michelin ones in terms on smooth steering. Also i felt that the car is a bit more agile  on  the road. So great beginning I guess. 

As per advice by my tyre specialist, I shall make the first wheel alignment, balancing etc... after 500km. Following  what at each car servicing  i shall make a rotation of all four tyre. By doing so he reckon that I should be able to reach 50,000km. Personally thats seems a lots for these cheap tyre BUT if it does then I will be one happy customer.

In terms of grips and how it feel on wet road I shall revert back soon.
