mmm if you want cheap tyres sava's are alright. but the quality is s**t. Uber soft compound, only just got 10,000km out of my 17's so far with maybe 60ish% left. and the road noise on the highway is terrible and not to mention grip in the wet is non existant

My last set of Sava Intensa tyres lasted me 66,000km ... and that was heavy city driving doing courier work ... ie: not driving gently ... and carrying a lot of 1 ton loads as well. I know i shouldn't have ... but they coped well.

Not the best on grip ... but they were good for heavy load work and high mileage.

Lasted me 1 year ... and wore perfectly even ... although i made sure i rotated them often and kept my wheel alignment up to date as well.

I have gone to Nankang NS-IIs now ... and I am not too happy with them ... they haven't ballanced well at all ... and very squirmish ... a very "narrow" 235 tyre that's for sure.

I need to bed them in a bit more i guess. I have only just swapped them over now.

And the Sava's were made in Australia as well ... whereas the Nankangs are made in Taiwan.
