(Based on 124 Reviews)
Great tire for the money I am not disappointed
Very,very good tires. Didn't know too much about the brand. So I bought them based on other reviews. I am very pleased with my decision. Solid grip and traction both in wet and dry, low road noise. And excellent price. No issues encountered in 5000 miles of driving; knock on wood.A steal of a deal compared to other higher priced brands. Will definitely buy them again.
great tire for the money, iv had no problems but a soft tire compound. with the way i drive these tires started to really wear around 15,000 miles but thats because of the roads and speeds that i do but over all a great tire.
Great little tire. I had never heard of the tire brand and never shopped SimpleTire but I gave them a shot and I'm glad that I did. This tire was way better than the Japanese market brand that came with my import. It's not the best in any category but it's a great value and very good all around.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Very good and affordable tires. Dont really have any complaints about the tire. The only thing I would say is that when it gets cold you may hear a thump when you first start driving but then as you drive more the noise will go awayBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

So far so good, only have them for a few weeks, but they have been Excellent in the light snow and rain. Handling and dry traction is also excellent. Great tire's from a great tire shop
I bought a used ford Focus SE with a 5 speed that had these on the front in size 205/55-16. Liking to drive somewhat spirited, I figured they would have to be scrapped for a premium brand, I was quite surprised to find they gripped well in dry, wet, and were good in snow considering they were not a winter tire. Handling and ride were even more impressive being equal to the more expensive tires from brand names I just put on my Impala LTZ from Firestone and the Generals I put on my minivan. Great all around tire for a commuter car.
The driver that drive this vehicle loves these tires.. he like how it handles during turning. Ride noise is very low and it has good traction in snow.
Good tire for the price. Terrible tires for wet and snow covered roads.
Awesome tires, don't hesitate to buy them.
Absolutely the worst tires I've EVER owned period. They are so poorly manufactured that because I had one out of round, I was forced to purchase a new wheel for my car. They don't retain their balance: I've literally had to take my car in every weekend and have the tires balanced, which of course is useless. I commute one day a week, so the car sits most of the week. After one new wheel and six tires (I was sent 2 replacements) I still have to go have my tires balanced on the weekends, actually going in today so I can commute to work this week. DONT BUY THESE TIRES!

Good quality for the price. Obviously top tier tires like Goodyear, mechellin and so on, but they're crazy expensive but overall I've been getting this tires for a while and usually lasts me like 2 years- 3years before I replace them. It handles pretty well regardless of the fact that I use it on a bmw 5series (which is a very picky car). Overall I would say the quality matches the price. P.S it's only good for everyday domestic use, do not get and use as a performance tire.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I had these tires on my front wheel drive volvo. They were perfect for Colorado driving conditions. I was very pleased with Simple Tires promptness on shipping and great prices.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
So, I've had the tires on my car for almost four weeks. Since I only drive my car about once a week, I don't have much input. Also, because the tire center I had install the tires can't balance tires, I've not been very happy in that respect. So, a few days ago I finally got the tires correctly balanced and they rode "amazingly." I mean, it's just unreal how well correctly balanced tires ride. The steering seems to be much tighter and I now only hear slight ride noise. I am anxious to get these in rain and snow to see what the awesome tread pattern will do. I have to admit, I love how the tread includes the name brand of the tire. My son actually recommended the tires to me because he had them on his car while attending school in Denver, Colorado and he said they were awesome in the snow. I hope to I out more once I drive these into the upcoming winter season.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I was skeptical about purchasing these tires, but I am glad that I did. I have no regrets. Great traction in all conditions and very good treadwear. I had 40k on the tires when I sold the vehicle. Much better tires than my OEM Hankooks.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Great tires, i am so glad i got them they out perform most tires i've had on my Ford Focus. I'm definitely sticking with Ingens A1 for now on. So worth the price.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I love this new tires excellent performance in Dry and wet pavement no road noise I am a taxi driver so I can’t wait to try them out in the snow I highly recommends this tires excellent shipping over night services and best of all great prices
I've never written a tire review before, but I am so impressed with these I felt I had to. I bought the Antares Ingens A1 to replace a well known brand of All Season Radials. The ones I had hydroplaned badly in wet weather and had horrible traction in the winter. So much so I was a bit scared to drive on them. I only know enough about tires to research reviews and a basic knowledge of design. These looked pretty good in my estimation. After the Anteres were installed the first thing I noticed was how much better the ride was. I've never been all that concerned with "ride" as much as performance & durability. There was a major, noticeable difference for the better with these. Then during the first heavy rain it was readily apparent how much better these handled in the wet. Zero hydroplaning and excellent control. I even noticed the difference in sound going through water. The old ones by comparison made a splashing sound, where the Anteres made a much smoother sound. Dry road handling has been excellent. A notable difference there too. I haven't had a chance to see how these are in snow or had them long enough to see how they wear. But I am IMPRESSED ! I will definitely seek these out when a need for tires arises. I will gladly (and have) recommend these to everyone.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I bought this tire online and I saw that it had about 40k tread life but I drive a lot so I didn’t think they would last too long. Well I was very wrong they still have good tread life, they are good with the winter weather and wet weather. And the tread life is great. To be honest for a tire that isn’t that expensive it is an amazing. I recommend it to everyone and anyone that need new tires.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I used these on my Mercedes R500 which is our family van. The ride is absolutely awesome just as good as Michelen tires which is more than twice the cost. all handling aspects are great, dry, wet, no noise. Already put 18k miles on them and very little wear.No winter driving yet. I definitely recommend the Antares Ingens. They also look very sporty.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

Excellent Tires and worth it for the price. I think these are good enough for those old crs on which you don't want spent money more than the car's value. I have it installed on my 14 year old Honda Accord.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I bought tires for my BMW they we're great.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
So far these tires have met my expectations for the price! And on top of that simple to gave me a free tire bc one of my tires went bad for some odd reason and they ordered me a new tire and it was at my house the very next day. I drive in the city, so it's normally wet and dry. We l when winter comes, I am going to see how they do. Very good tires. Low ride noise too.
Great job guys thanks for the quick serviceBy submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
I've only owned 2 different types of tire brand, OEM and Antares. By far Antares are a better brand. Smooth ride on these NYC streets, which says a lot.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These look good and handle well. What is odd is that I replaced winter tires that I was still running in july, but these new all seasons get about 1.5-2 mpg less. I would expect the soft winter rubber to get worse mileage on my sedan. Otherwise, these are great after about 4k miles (I drive about 60 miles per day). Also, the sales rep really blew me away--helped in several ways during the process and maintained awesome communication. Even helped me with a price match guarantee after I ordered! Definitely will use this simple tire again.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Can't beat these tires for the cost. Installer even said he would have thought them to be at least double the price by the looks of the design.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are great. Very quiet. I couldnt rate tread life or winter traction because Ive only had them a couple months.
For the price, these are nothing short of incredible. I put them on my 1999 Boxster that I use for cheap fun. Not unreasonably loud, no scary traits, just a solid choice for a daily driver. Only 1,000 dry miles on them so far. No wet or winter driving.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are the best I've found so far in terms of economical and operation. Excellent handling and at such an affordable price! I have these on an S2000.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
This tire is really more of a touring tire than a high performance tire. It has good grip in the dry. Rides nice, low noise. Wet handling it causes the Traction Control to kick in more than a true high performance tire would, but still has decent grip. Winter traction isn't the best, the grooves in the tread blocks aren't even with the grooves between the tread blocks, so it doesn't dig into the snow as it should. It kind of makes you want to use a grinder and grind down the grooves in the tread blocks even with the grooves between the tread blocks. Tread life is OK, it's a 300 tire so it should last about 30K miles, not the 40K miles it says. I have 25K miles and they are doing OK.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
BUYER BEWARE!! Horrible. Traction is beyond bad. Roads do not need to be super wet, for traction to go out of wack. The slowest turn will make noise as if I’m cutting corners like a professional racer. Turns during snow season are even worse. No control. UNSAFE! get these of the market. I’m waiting to hydroplane next. I bought based on reviews from Walmart. I think high reviews were based on price point. Because who would rate high based on drive? Now I hv to invest another set of tires and I’ve inky had these 8 months. Didn’t like them from day 1, my car is fairly new and I could feel the drive was different immediately. But I gave them a chance and now I just plain HATE THEM!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These are on my 2014 BMW 320i. I could’ve went with regular tires, but I kept the run flat set up. These tires are a little louder than my pirelli run flats and they don’t handle as well in the rain, but it’s expected since they’re about 50$ less per tire. I haven’t noticed if the tread is wearing as I’ve onku had them for about 3-4K miles. If I had to buy again, I probably would.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
Noisy tires but holding this far, they say 40000 miles so ...well have to see then for final verdict.By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.

These have been a really good set of tires for the price. I recommend them to anyone.
I love these tires I had these on my Volvo which is front-wheel drive they works good in the snow they were great in the rain I got good tread life all around a good tire and a great price and simpletire had fantastic shipping
I would buy these again. Great price!
This was the only place that had my Mini Cooper tires and not for a bad price. My car rides and handle better on the road. Will continue to use the company. They carry excellent tires.
My name is audai...... I have bmw 745li 2003 Ibuy this tire befor monthe i great tire no proplem no no any thing happen ....its good tire and the price its cheap .....i like this tire thx
This is a good tire for the money. They have only see about 500 miles, but they are significantly quieter than my previous tires - which had horrible wet/snow/ice traction. The Ingens A1 has solid grip on launch and hard cornering, but wet/snow/ice traction is average at best. The tread warranty is great for the price. At this point, I would buy another set of these for my FR-S.
Unbelievable value for such good performance! My second set. Simple Tire has the best prices anywhere!!!
So far these have been great tires. We had an abnormal snow event for Alabama and these tires done excellent handling on snow and ice. Of course don't speed unnecessarily on ice, which that should go without saying, but that's still the main cause for people in ditches. Alright, back to the tires. We've already put 10,000 miles on them and they seem to be holding up great. The quiteness of these tires are great for the price. If you need a ride and are financially challenged like us, these tires are a great option to consider.
I have to I'm happy with the tires
Outstanding tires. I am running these on my Mercedes C350. Previously, I had Michelin Pilots and Nokians. So far, I prefer these tires to both. I have been so impressed with the tires that I plan to buy a second set for my wife's Subaru. Do yourself a favor and try these - you won't regret it.
These are excellent tires and well priced. Excellent performance tires with great grip on the road. Would recommend these tires to anyone with a sports car or SUV.
So far not bad can’t say anything about road noise due to my car being loud itself. But these tire so far are well worth the price
I love these tires!! First I was skeptical because of the price, but after break them in they definitely a good budget tire, I drive aggressive, talk about taking corners At high speed and these tires don’t squeal unless I really push them too hard but still optain traction, and these are quite tires too.
Great tire for the price will be buying them again!!
Great handling tires. Fantastic value. A. Slightly more than usual road. Noise but not bad
‘16 Honda Civic EX-T with 235/40/18 & approaching 2k miles. Compared to stock 215/50/17 Firestone all-seasons, these Antares Ingens are stickier, better planted, and have less sidewall roll. They do ride a bit more firm & road noise is a notch louder but expected with 40-series. I’ve had no issues with heavy rain/hydroplaning @ 65-70mph. Have not encountered any snow yet. Tire wear seems average, expect 2-3 years tire-life (Treadwear 300) with 40k mileage warranty. *These are directional tires*
Great tires, great price. This tires give you a quiet ride and feel safe while diving.
I must say these tires are awesome! I put them on and took a drive up into the mountains of Idaho and went thru many winding and icy (at times) roads and these tires were enjoyable to drive and stuck to the road very well. So far these tires rate high in my book-the price to quality ratio is unbeatable! I highly recommend these tires. The only poor reviews I found for these tires were among people who had a bad experiences (these always seem to happen with any product) and in the UK where they call them tyres.
Overall decent cheap tire. Expect cheap tire performance and you'll be fine.
The handling is great and the Road noise... there is none! There are great tires for the price. We will purchase again.
These tires are a fantastic value and the whole buying, delivery, and installation process was super easy!
Haven't had the tires long, but so far so good. Initial impression (handling, ride noise, etc.) is very good.
Simple Tire offers great prices and many optional brands. I have bought many tires from Simple Tire and will continue in the future. Thanks!
Nice looking tire but I feel it is noisy tire. I haven't yet drove on snow or heavy rain.
Drives really smooth! It was graded a "F" for gas mileage and I would rank that a "A" and handling is perfect. Tread is still good. Awesome tires. I give a 5 star rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I was a little apprehensive buying these tires regardless of the good reviews because they were so inexpensive. I needed cheap tires because of my budget and so far, I have no regrets. Most cheaper tires feel spongy in the corners, but not these. They corner great with a smooth ride and grip the road extremely well. I've driven through two heavy rains where the water was running across the road with these tires and they gripped the road wonderfully. I've only had these tires less than 60 days so I haven't experienced snow, but the way they cut through water, I have no doubt they will do well in snow. If they don't, I'll be back to revise my review.
Great tires and price was even better
It a good tire
Easy to order and waiting for us at the tire shop.
Great tire for a great price! !
I use these tires for summer driving on my 2011 Saab 9-5. This is my second set and they have been good tires. I average 2 miles per gallon better fuel mileage with these tires over my winter all season tires. Not sure how much is tires and how much is different gasoline blends but I got my mileage back right after switching tires over this spring. The only negative I have is with whatever rubber compound they use. They operate like a bias ply tire; they have a slight thump when the tire is cold but once the tires begin to warm up (usually about 2-3 miles), they come right out of it.
These tires were as good as any that I've ever had. The price was about half what one would expect,including shipping. They came in only a few days. I was very pleased. Simple Tire keeps a record of what I got for future reference. I'll never get tires any other way. I got four a while ago,then sold the car. one of them was run flat,and destroyed. The boy wanted to replace that one,and get a spare to match,so I ordered two more. That's where them keeping the record is handy. When he called me with the request I didn't need to go look at the car to order them. I had only to call and say I would like two more. When asked if I would buy these tires again I would have to say that I don't think these are going to ware out.
I HAVE THESE TIRES ON A 1997 BMW Z3 ROADSTER. THEY ARE QUIET AND HAVE GOOD DRY TRACTION.ONLY HAVE A FEW MILES ON THEM SO CAN'T COMMENT ON WEAR. CAR DRIVES GREAT. HAVEN'T DRIVEN IN THE RAIN AND NEVER WILL IN SNOW. GOOD TIRES AT A REASONABLE PRICE.
Very good so far assuming the tread life is the good.
Just bought and installed.. Very surprised at how quiet these tires are.. Have these on an older Porsche Boxster 18" series and they handle great.. Like the car is on rails (dry pavement).. Have driven in the pouring also.. Good there as well.. I don't drive the car in the winter so I can't comment on that.. Recommend as a good alternative to expensive tires if you are just driving normally with some occasional aggressiveness..
Ready like this tires and would buy them again.
I purchased these tires for my 2015 Mini Cooper 4 door hardtop in December right before the snow hit the Northeast US. My idea was that for about 50$ a wheel, if they can get me though the winter, than i will be totally satisfied about them. I was a little hesitant with the reviews from some people saying that they made their cars feel buttery around corners, and that they had horrible handling. Let me just address this directly and say that if you car has characteristically bad handling these tires may not make the car autocross compatible, but i do not think that the tires are responsible for those reviewers issues. In my experience with these tires, (low temp for all the next examples) dry cornering is great, wet cornering is great-good, snow cornering is good. An additional note for snow driving is that I did not get stuck with these tires, even when I believed I would. They far outperformed any of my expectations for the price tag and I will not hesitate to purchase them again. I stand firm with my choice to purchase these and would recommend them to anyone else as well. A small disclaimer on tread life; As this is my first season with these I cannot accurately comment on tread life, however at 1/4 to 1/2 the cost of other tires, if they get me 1/2 the life of other tires than I consider these a great investment.
This tire seems to be just as good as the High Price guys and were 1/2 the price. Good looking tread design. They are on a BMW X5 4x4. Not a light Vehicle. Delivery was very fast!
I am so glad that I found this website Simple Tire, we have a 2015 Toyota Sienna SE and the tires wore out at 25k miles which for a new car was kind of odd. Well they say they wore out because Toyota only makes tires to last 20-25k miles. So they provided me with a quote of $1,200.00 not to include the balancing of the tire. Well that was a bit high so we called Simple Tire the rep that handled the call was awesome fast and efficient. Received my tires the same week and not to mention the tires from Simple Tire and the ones that came with our van had the same thread design. The car rides smooth and its awesome I can't rate winter weather we live in Florida and we don't have snow. But the car runs smith and awesome could of not made a better choice.
Great tire so far, great price! Fast delivery I would recommend to a friend!'
i put these tires on a car i drive very little, but i did drive it on the interstate and it handled like a dream and rode smooth. i would buy these tires again.
I put two of these tires on the front to replace original Continentals on a 2014 Passat. Wet handling here in FL is my main concern. These tires have done as well or better then the Contis in the rain. Overall ride is good, and noise is not bad except on really rough roads. As for wear, after 5,000 miles it's good. They're only 40K mi. tires so we will see what happens long term. For the price these tires are a great value comparable with tires double the money. I have recommended these to friends and I would purchase these tires again.
The price and reviews really attracted me to these tires. After receiving them I was a little disappointed because the manufacturer sticker rated these tires lower than simple tire did. But after putting them on and driving on them for a bit now. I am pleased with them so far. We haven't had any snow yet so that remains to be determined.
Good looking tires. Rides pretty good. About to order another set.
Good tires so far especially for the price.
very good service and delivered extremely fast. I have bought 2 sets of tires from simple tire, front and rear), I am very happy with their service and expediency,I will definitely use simple tire again, and i have already recommended their service to others, and I will continue to do so! Larry,
These are the best tires, looks very nice on my 2011 Volkswagon Jetta. The noise of the tires need a little work but over all these are AWESOME!!!!! I love the fact that my tires came to a location that was just up the street from my house not even 5 minutes away and were put on within days of shipping them. Totally Awesome company Simpletire.com!!!!!!!
Being somewhat older (70) and "Low Tech" I was very hesitant in ordering tires online. Short story, I am very happy I did. The tires arrived the NEXT DAY at my mechanics shop. After his modest fee for installation, I saved over $240 from the least expensive "Discount Tire" shop nearby. The tires look and ride great on my Infiniti. I would buy from SimpleTire again and will recommend you to friends and neighbors.
Awesome grip on the road, wet or dry. I will definitely buy another set.
Just got them new seem Great soo far I will only be using them in the summer as I also have winter studded snow tires. If its any consolation I did hit a curb last week at about 40 mph and no noticeable damage or blowout occurred. Seems like a pretty stellar tire to me and a great deal overall.
Used these at a Drift event on a S13 KA24DE NA and they killed it.. I read a review about de-lamination when they heat up but we didn't experience ANY issues. Was hot lapping them at one point with 3 different drivers and they lasted 40+ passes over 2 days. For the price I will buy these for rest of season no doubt. Happy skids
A very high quality tire that affordable !!! They have a very good ride to them. will order from again thanks for a great product
Real good tires, real good price I'll buy more tires from you guys when needed, it's nice to have a company that takes the time to get feed back from their customers, very rare these days!!!!
My last set of these tires lasted over 50000 miles!
Love them thanks
Great build and durable tire. Will continue to stick with this brand. Very happy with it.
2006 Saab 9-3 Aero v6 Convertible
So far so good! No snow yet, but the tires are fine in dry or rain in city driving. I loved the price. One concern: the sidewalls seem softer than I am used to. The OEM Yokohamas on my 2014 had a stiffer feel in fast turns and over bumps. These feel a bit softer - less secure - a bit more like jello tires. Not sure if it is something to worry about. Just something to get used to over time. Anyone else feel the same way?
These tires were for my daughter. She says they ride smooth and are quiet. Not excellent in the rain, but do ok.
Can't beat the price for a tire that handles and rides this well even in New England winters. I have every intention of putting these tires on my other two vehicles.
