Achilles ATR-K Economist is an all-season, high performance, passenger tire. This tire is designed to offer exceptional grip and responsive driving experience. It also delivers noise-free, smooth and fuel-efficient rides without compromising on the safety.
Best-suited for: Sedans, SUVs, and CUVs.
- All-season tread design provides low rolling resistance and higher fuel efficiency.
- Twin offset centre ribs offer improved steering responsiveness and stability.
- Large shoulder blocks and sipes deliver better cornering grip and optimal braking performance.
- Wide circumferential grooves drain water effectively and resist hydroplaning.
- Twin silent ribs eliminate unwanted pattern noise.
Describes the sidewall appearance. Examples: BSW= Black Side Wall, WSW = White Side Wall OWL = Outlined White Letters.
The load index (LI) is a 2 or 3 digit number that corrolates to the maximum amount of weight the tire can carry. For example, a tire with a load index of 87 indicates that the tire can carry a maximim load of 1,201 lbs. In the case of our example the 87 identifies the tires ability to carry a maximum of 1,201 lbs. So 4 tires will carry a maximum of 4,804 lbs. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimim Load Index. It is not recommended to install tires with a lower Load Index. By doing so, this could cause your tires to be overloaded thus potentially causing a blowout.
Speed Ratings (SR) are based on laboratory tests and indicates the maximum speed the tire can achieve. These tests are based on limited time trials. Higher speed rating tires typically will yield better handling capabilities, but may often result in lower mileage. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual for the recommended minimum Speed Rating. It is not recommended to install a tire with a lower speed rating as it could affect the handling of your vehicle. It is important to note that speed ratings only apply to tires that have not been damaged, altered, under-inflated or overloaded. Additionally, most tire manufacturers maintain that a tire that has been cut or punctured no longer retains the tire manufacturer's original speed rating, even after being repaired because the tire manufacturer can't control the quality of the repair.
|Load Range/Ply Rating||Not Available||
Ply Rating is related to the max load capacity. This value can be defined with a letter or number. The higher the number/letter, the higher the load capacity.
To help consumers evaluate their tires, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) created the Uniform Tire Quality Grading System (UTQG). The UTQG rates tires are rated on their tread-wear, traction performance, and temperature resistance. The grade for each of these can be found on the sidewall of your tire (except for winter tires and certain light truck tires). Click here for more information.
|Max Single Load(lbs)||827||The maximum load this tire will support. Remember to multiply this number by the number of tires installed on your vehicle to get the maximum carrying capacity. This number is directly related to the Load Index.|
|Max Single Air Pressure(PSI)||50||The maximum air pressure this tire will support. This does not represent the amount of air pressure your tires should have at all times. Consult with your owner's manual to determine the best air pressure you should use for your vehicle.|
|Tread Depth||10.0||The amount of tread on the tire. Once the tire is worn to 2/32nds, it is considered fully used and should be replaced at that time. Most tires will have tire indicators in the grooves of the tire to help you determine when the tires are worn down to 2/32nds.|
Nondirectional - most common, same tread pattern on inside & outside of the tire. Can be rotated to all four corners of vehicle. Asymmetrical - tread pattern is different on the inside to the outside of the tire, and must be mounted properly. Can be rotated to all four corners of the vehicle. Directional tires - roll in only one direction, must be mounted properly. Once mounted they must remain on the same side of the vehicle, and only be rotated front to rear.
|Rim Width Range||5.0-6.0||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||5.5||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||6.5||The measurement from sidewall to sidewall.|
|Tread Width||Not Available||The measurement from one side of the tread to the other side of the tread.|
|Overall Diameter||21.81||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|
|Manufacturer Part Number||MAN164516||Manufacturer part number (sku)|

Great tires for the price
Awesome tires long lasting for a great low price
Great if you want low profile 14s
I bought these tires for an experiment. I put them on a 96 civic to test the effect of a small diameter tire on final drive. The car became noticeably more peppy on a 0-60 sprint.
Good tire at a great price. These will be on a low mileage vehicle, and I expect many years of service. Tires-easy.com was easy!
Great hard to find size. Affordable and quality product
I mounted these on stock 4.5" rims for my '64 VW Beetle. They were paired with the same brand in a 195 on 6" rims in the rear. It looks great and overall braking and handling has improved. Very happy with this purchase.
Excellent tire at the best price. Free shipping. Had the tires before I knew it!
Best Tire I've purchased for the money... :-)
I have 2 2014 Mitsubishi Mirages. Anyone who has owned one knows that they eat tires and brakes quicker than other cars, so affordable tires are important. However, this tire matches up perfectly with the stock Dunlop Enasave 01 A/S. The only downside is that it is not made in a 65 profile size. This throws the speedometer off a little, but it is worth it since I can literally buy 3.25 of these tires for 1 of the stock tires. Also, I have never had a better rain tire than these of any make or any vehicle. Many thanks to Giga Tires for offering this awesome tire at such a great value... :-)
Perfect size for my wheel and car combo
Quick and easy
I use these tires to stretch and they stretch amazing, like they were made to do so. Great affordable price. Wish they made them in a 195/40/17
Finally getting some 14" tire choices in the US for car enthusiasts!
This is a specialty tire and I bought these for a very specific fitment on a customized car. So glad to see these choices becoming available here in the United States for us car enthusiasts. Keep stocking these tires-easy.com
Received my order in just two days
No problems for a great price
Timely order and delievery
After Tire shoes refused to give me an exchange on tires W/O a 20% restocking fee I came across a better value and deliever from Tires Easy.
just can't go wrong for the prices
You cannot go wrong. Use tires on my 2009 Smart Car....front. solid handling, great price and superb service
Great tires for a great price! On top of that, they were the look I were going for! 195/40/r17 were on point and they made my car drive super smooth! Definitely can't beat the price nor the quality!! Don't know how long they would last, but if they don't,the pice it to good to not buy a couple more if need be!
Great tire for Smart Car
Improved the ride from the OEM tires
This is the second time I've bought Achilles tires AND stretched them (Trust me I know its dumb) but they hold up fine. They are NOT rated for snow keep that in mind, they don't do bad in rain they actually let out enough for me to swing the tail around, yet the front stays responsive while holding onto the road. Now in the dry seasons are when these things shine. They feel just as good as my Toyo Proxies did without costing me a ton for tires I'm going to shred, even with medium shredding (no 1000 horsepower) they have lasted a while. When I headline this "Grippy" I truly mean it. If you're looking for good cheap tires for summer or tires on drift spares, these are it.
Bought tires for my 2009 Smart Car. Found them to be of high qualuty, smooth ride, great value...
They do the job
I got these tires for one of our Mini coopers. The car is super low, so we needed the smallest tire to help with clearance. It has a medium stretch on 18x8 wheels. I have had them for 3 years, and don't race the car obviously, but the tires to last a good bit. I will definitely buy again when the time comes
Frank & Candi B
Bought these for my 37 year old car, they actually ride fantastic & quiet, I’ll probably look into them for some of my other vehicles.
Great quality tires
Perfect tires for the perfect stance car
great tires for the price and service was fabulous
Very good tire
The tire came very quickly, and it mounted easily. I did not have to add any weights, anywhere. I have no vibration and the bike handles very well with it.
Definitely a great buy!!!!
These tires are great and pretty smooth! I will be definitely buying my tires from here from now on!!! Don't sleep on these tires, great price awesome quality!

Waiting for the rain
Great tires for the price, wanna see how they do, now that the rain is on way.
Perfect Size for Lowered VW Bug
Bought these for the front of my early (1965) VW Bug that is lowered quite a bit. They fit great!!! So much better than the old 135r 15's!!! Not only do they ride a million times better but they do not rub AT ALL!! So far I couldn't be happier...we will see how they wear, but they can't be any worse than the stretched 135's!!!
Easy to stretch, relatively quiet
Cheap tires, decent ride, more quiet than previous Pirelli p-zero.
Tires are an good deal !!
L Moore Sr.
Great tire at good price point
Having no problems or issues with this tire. Good traction, grip and little wear showing.
I haven't had them long enough to give a five star rating but so far they're very good. Winter is coming though and I'll know more then.
Exceeded my expectations!
I was a bit sceptical buying tires online, but based on the reviews of the tire I chose I took a chance. I had the tires installed the day I got them, which was rather quickly. I took my car for a test drive and was amazed at how well the car handled and road, they grip really well and ride quality is great, I didn't expect much as far as ride quality since the car is lowered and really stiff but I could tell the difference immediately. Giga tires in my opinion is a great place to get tires at a great price. I highly recommend them and will be purchasing more tires in the future.
