I am not a “car girl”, you won’t hear me talking about horsepower or mpg. Heck I can’t even remember to take my Ford in for an oil change without a reminder. But what I DO care about is good handling of my car on the road and safety of my family. I recently had the opportunity to test out Sailun Tires as part of the PTPA Sailin Tires Track event. At this event we had the chance to compare Sailun Tires head to head to another brand to see how they held up. The other brand was in the same category as the Sailun Tires, but costs 70% MORE then Sailun.
After a full day of driving around the course (kind of felt like being back at young drivers again!) you know what I found… I could not tell the difference between the 2 tires! That is right the tires that cost 70% more then the Sailun and both handled the same on the tight curves and quick stops. The traction and performance was comparable between the two, where you could see a difference… in the price!
I am all for keeping my family safe, but if you can save a little bit of money while still getting great quality, then I say go for it! The track day was a great experience. I learned a lot about tires and was reminded of important driving tips to keep you safe on the road (keep your hands at 10 and 2!). Sailun Tires is a PTPA award winner and offers a wide variety of tires for all size vehicles. Their line up includes the all important snow tires as well. We didn’t get a chance to test out the snow tires (thank God, it is summer after all!) but you can find a great review by In R Dream that shows just how good the Sailun Winter Tires perform.
That same week that I went to the track event Hubs was taking his truck into our trusted mechanic and friend for his yearly “get everything checked and fixed come out with a huge bill repair”. Once his truck had the once over the mechanic called to give us the update and spoke the words that send fear into my heart like no other… “…2 New Tires”. Hubs has large truck, when he needs a full set that is 6 tires and they can be very expensive. Right now, he only needed 2, we gave our mechanic the “green light” – do what he thought was best. After all it is the safety of my family riding around in that truck! A week later Hubs picked up his truck what did we see…
Sailun Tires!!! Without knowing anything about my involvement with the track event or having us offer any guidance as to what brand of tires we wanted for the truck our mechanic picked Sailun Tires as he trusts them and they offer great value for your money. Now my family has Sailun Tires with us through every turn. So if you in are in the market for tires make sure you are getting the best value for your money.
