Achilles tires?

Hey, guys had those tires on my g37 but only for 1000 miles, looking for long term reviews. Thank you.

I know a few people that have tried them and think they're alright. There are options out there that are better in terms of quality though. An employee here ran some on his E46 Touring and the sidewall split on him while he was driving.

had them on my n54 for about a year...put 'em on since they were super cheap ($230 IIRC for 2 x 265/30/19, mounted and balanced) and I was trading the car anyway. no issues with them at all aside from them being a little noisy...nothing too concerning though. However, I was shopping for new tires several months ago and it looks like the Achilles went up in price. Almost the same as Falkens and Hankooks so I ended up getting 452s.

^I'm not particularly happy with my FKs. They're okay in most cases but I find them to be pretty noisy.

Thank you, guys, like I said, I had them for around 1k miles. They were pretty soft/easy to mount compared to other brands and rode very soft/not really noisy. Was looking just for long term reviews. It could be the next Huindai or Hankook, nobody trusted them at first

I was wondering the same about the Achilles ATR as they are way cheaper than any other decent options here in Quebec.. Im looking for 235/35/19 - 265/30/19 and they come up to 660$tx inc. and if Im opting for anything else like FK 452, Hankook V12 or G-MAX AS03, Im looking at 1150-1200$ tx.inc..

Only brands comparable in terms of pricing here is Nexen, Nankang and Hercules and from what I read, Achilles are above all these quality wise..

i'm currently running ATR sports in 235/35/19 and 275/30/19, no problems so far, but i've only had them on for 1 month, grip is not bad for the price you pay, noise is to be expected with low pros but its not excessive

I've owned Achilles ATR Sports in a few different sizes and have zero complaints for the price.

Currently running:
215/35-18
225/40-18


Have ran in the past:
265/30-19
245/35-19
235/35-19
255/40-18

I can honestly say they are a great deal for the money, outlasted my nankangs 2 times over.
