Hey folks,

I'm a member on a number of other forums for other marques I own, some folk have recommended Landsail Tyres to me, and seem to raving very highly of them.

Whats your thoughts? Anyone using them? The ones im considering have B/B rating and some websites have good reviews, but I always like to get personal feedback from actual users, such as this forum.

Thanks.

Landsail into a ditch?
Joking! Sorry no specific knowledge except they are made in mainland China in a huge factory and they don’t seem to claim any or have any great innovative designs to talk of.
Would I put them on any of my cars? No but that’s a personal view and MO

Just looked on their website, first time I’ve seen a tyre manufacturer who tells you the new tread depth.7.8mm to be precise....

I think I had some on a car years ago, didn’t rate them much and had Nexen’s instead

I have Nexen NFera SU on currently and when I went out for the first time in the rain earlier this week, I absolutely nearly poo'd myself. There was zero rain grip as soon as I put my foot down, even a little.

Also, they are 2018 DOT, but the amounts of cracking is horrific, all around the outer edges.

Interesting, I’ve had them for years (okay they used to only last about a year with my mileage) and were always predictable in the wet, my current set though have been on coming up to two years and like yours are 2018, again nothing unpredictable about their movement.
Michelin are a similar price point now and they do work very well in the wet

I know, I am equally surpsrised as after reading reviews, etc, I was actully just about to invest in another brand new set, but not now. Gave me no confidence in taking a corner on a motorway at anything over 50 mph, which I could usually takeat around 65-70mph in my previous car.

I think I had a car with Landsail's fitted, wasn't impressed with those at all and I go for Chinese ditchfinder tyres because they are the best that I have discovered plus they are less to replace when the expensive brands get punctures :D

I inherited them on my C200, no problem with them at all, it's just the longevity of them I am interested in. But then I am not Lewis Hamilton. Would I buy them to replace the ones on the car ? Yes probably :)

Unlikely, the technology on show via any information sources is negligible really- as said it's a personal choice I go for premium brands as far as mid range (e.g. Vredestein ), but I've had massive experiences of other Chinese polymer products which are at best...interesting shall we say!
Would I stick them on a cheap runabout? Possibly not sure even then

C220 CDI ESTATE 2012
I bought some wheels for my old 2.0 MX-5 and they came fitted with new Landsail tyres, to be fair I hammered the tyre's on autosolo's but still they didn't show any strange fondness for the local ditches and were eventually replaced by some Uniroyal Rainsport.
I currently have Goodyear's on my C220 but bought them from previous use on different cars.

Just had these fitted to my W124 .I removed Avons because they had minute crazing on the redius of the tires .This was due to sitting on my drive in the hot sun for 4 years from new. With less than 3.000 miles on them i was not going to see good tires go bad .So now i have Landsail tires on my car .Dont know what they are like other than my drive home for the fitting shop was as good as the Avons for 1/2 the price .If they go bad i can buy another set they are cheap enough .Also the Landsail tires are used on Boeing aircraft, do Google this fact yourself.
