    For a first time I have seen this tyre model on Oponeo website. I never heard nothing about them and I decided to call the customer service. Consultant exactly answered my questions and I placed an order for Rapid P609. I drive on them more than a year now and I can confirm what consultant said about them. Tyres are quiet and what is the most important wet grip is very good. Safty is major thing for me. I have to admit that I didn't have to much money for tyres and that was the reason why I purchased this model but it was a good choice. Recommended for everyone who would like to save some money.

    I couldn't spend to much for new set of tyres but I had to change my previous ones. I was looking for tyres from the budget class. I read a lot of opinions on the Internet on many different websites. I focused on Asian producers and finally I decided to purchase Rapid P609. After a year of using this tyre I can share with my opinion. They are quiet and didn't worn off to much. I think I will be able to use these tyres for few more seasons. Wet grip is all right. If somebody is looking for cheap and good tyres I can recommend this model.

    I was really sceptical about Rapid P609 before I ordered them. I couldn't understand how it is possible to produce tyre matching every quality and safety requirements and sell it for such a low price. I said to myself - lets check it. I was surprised with the effect. Tyres are safe and what is important flawless. I drive a lot and I don't have to be worried that I have low quality tyres. They are quiet - important for many car users and for me as well. I can recommend with clear conscience.

    I was not disappointed in the purchase. I suggested only with the opinions from customers and advice from the consultant. I'm sharing my opinion to calm down everone who would like to order Rapid P609. Everything is fine with this tyre. I can see no difference between them and my previous tyres which were from middle class. There is no reason to pay more if you can get good tyre for that kind of money. I invite to place an order - happy customer.

    I was surprised that Chinese manufacturers can make such a good product. I decided to buy Rapid P609 becouse of few reasons. The most important one was of course price. I didn't want to buy second hand tyres. I think it is not safe solution. I have two years warranty period and I'm completey satisfied with that. No reason to think to much about the order here - simply recommended.

Product description

Rapid P609 215/40 R17 87 W XL, ZR

Technology description: Rapid P609 is an economy summer tyre. It is intended for high-performance passenger cars used on daily drives in the city and on long routes. It will satisfy the drivers who try to obtain a fine balance between quality and price. It provides driving comfort and safety even during dynamic drives.

Rapid P609 has an asymmetric tread pattern, which allows the maintenance of good performance on any surface and in any weather conditions. A reduced risk of aquaplaning and good grip on corners are due to the lateral notches. The use of notches on the central rib translates into a better grip when accelerating or driving on a straight road.

P609 is made of a rubber compound with the addition of silica. This allowed for a reduction in the tyre's weight and rolling resistance. The result is lower fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.

Rapid P609 was designed to ensure driving confidence and good behaviour in any conditions. This is why the tread is covered with a system of grooves and sipes responsible to improve traction on different surfaces, from dry roads to loose and contaminated surfaces.

The adequate structure of grooves and notches makes not only for a better grip but also higher travelling comfort. They help to dampen vibration, reducing the noise generated by the tyre.
