yes they are ok for ordinary driving. If you plan to drive a lot in heavy rains and on the highway for example, you should stay away from them.

I drive on highway daily. My main worry is safety when driving on highway on rainy days.

Then your number 1 priority should be tyres and brakes.

The formula is very simple.

  • if the value of 4 tyres is greater than the value of your life, then fix the Landsail tyres
  • If the value of 4 tyres is less than the value of your life, fix the Bridgestones (or brands like Yokohama, Sumitomo, Good Year, Dunlop, Falken or something similar)

Second what @Crosswind says

There is a marked difference in the quality of tires between these dodgy 3rd rate Chinese tires and top tier manufacturers (even if made in markets outside their base of operation)

 

One shouldn't underestimate the amount of R&D as well as testing that goes in to proper tires - so it's not just the brand name and quality of the materials that you pay a premium for with good tires.

 

Check Pirelli at Toyota Lanka as well - they have a card offer on Sampath Bank or something on going

 

Also check Grease Monkey .lk for offers on tires

If you do a fair bit of long distance stay away from the cheap Chinese knock off tyres. As Devinda mentioned, loads of R&D and testing go in to those expensive tyres. All tyres are black and round but they aren't all the same, those expensive tyres are expensive for a reason. Those quality tyres make a massive improvement in emergency braking distance and general grip levels. In addition they absorb minor potholes and imperfections better than those cheaper tyres.
