Sailun eRange EV Tire line

I would be very interested to know if there is anyone else that has seen or maybe installed these tires on their MY or MYP. I came across these looking for All Season tire alternatives to the Michelin Pilot A/S tires. I also discovered they are being sold now at the tire chain called Sullivan Tire in the New England area and the prices look quite reasonable - all 4 installed for about $1050.

  2. I did find this video posted as well on YouTube -
Would be great to get some actual real-world opinions on these. For the record, I am a big Michelin fan - I have them on our Audi SQ5 and have run Pilots Sports on other oast cars. The cost is always the big sting.

Not available yet, so no one knows the quality. Are you going to volunteer, or stick with the known quality of PilotSport, Vredestein?

I agree with Madsen203. Quality tires are critical, especially with expensive-to-repair crumple-zone designed cars!
I mean, you can save more by keeping HVAC off, driving slow, accelerating slowly, driving below the speed limit, running aero wheels. The only time you need to squeeze out an extra mile is if you drain the battery to 0 and trying to make it to a charger which sounds like dumb poor planning on your part.

If you can afford a Tesla, you can afford the cheap electricity that goes into it to use all its features. EV efficiency stuff is a joke and a scam on the American public.

Keep your snake oil, I’ll keep my years of driving enjoyment.
 
I just saw these as well, but am unable to order them yet.

Should be a good budget alternative for those that don't really need Michelin/Pirelli performance on their day to day commutes, and are going through rear tires every 10-15k miles. It looks like they're going to land somewhere in the $200s for each tire.

The main takeaway for me here is that there is actually a cheaper alternative available in 255/275 fitment for MYP now, not that these are actually going to be good EV-centric tires with crazy efficiency or noise characteristics. As long as you're not running these in the winter, I'm sure they're going to be a "fine," normal tire for those who just aren't going to notice the difference between these and a Michelin. I can, most people on this forum can, but there's definitely a huge market for these.

If you've got dedicated winter tires, these might be a great tire for the warm months. Wear it out in 10k and save about $400 each time your rears need replacement. :)
