Achilles 868 is an all-season passenger tire. This tire comes with exemplary handling and cornering capabilities. It also boasts improved stability and precise steering responsiveness in dry and wet road conditions.
Best-suited for: Sedans, Compact Cars, and CUVs.
- Large shoulder blocks offer strength for improved cornering and handling capabilities.
- Wide circumferential grooves drain water effectively and resist hydroplaning.
- All-season sipes improve traction on wet surfaces.
- The asymmetrical tread pattern provides superior cornering capabilities and precise steering responsiveness. Mud & Snow (M+S) rated tire.
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)||1653||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)||44||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||8.18||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||5.5-7.0||The approved wheel rim width range this tire will support.|
|Measured Rim Width||6.0||The recommended wheel width as recommended by the tire manufacturer to get the best wear us performance for this tire.|
|Section Width||8.7||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||26.9||The height of the tire when fully inflated.|
|Manufacturer Part Number||MAX217015||Manufacturer part number (sku)|

These are very good tires
Achilles tires are the only v rated 400 treadwear tire I have found. The 868s are on my 05 CTS. They are quite, handle very well and have very good traction in the wet. I have not driven in snow yet. The high treadwear rating means they should last.
Their great tires handle nice
You cant beat the quality for the great price
A good Tire
Recommend this tire
Great value, Great in snow.
Great snow traction so far. Great value.
These tires are a beast!
Incredible value. Handle great, average noise, DEEP tread depth and good look. No complaints
Best Tire for the price hands down.
After 5000 miles, these are excellent in rain, snow, and for quietness, and overall handling. They have been wearing very evenly and I would definitely recommend them. Would buy again in a heartbeat. I can’t buy a better tire for about 50 bucks apiece
Good everyday passenger car tires
No complaints after a few thousand miles. Work well in the wet. Ride nice and are quiet. SUPER reasonably priced.
Perform as expected
I don't drive this car much, but the old tires were getting dangerous to be left on the car. At this point they are no better or worse than the Firestones that came off of it
Can’t go wrong for the price, they did great in the snow this winter
Really good tires for an amazing price.. I do a lot of high mileage and they've held up every time... Highly recommend...
These tire are great
The tire handle the wet, dry and ,snow road they are great for any weather love them I would order them again, but hopefully all four tires come at once I was missing one of the tire when they was deliver.
Fantastic and affordable got to my door in 2 days am very happy with my tire purchase. Looking for cheap and affordable tires you've come to the right place. Couldnt be happier and oh yeah my tires are working well 2. For what I paid its amazing. The tires are smoother then I thought. Definatly not a premium tire bit for the money they are an exceptionally smooth tire. A bit loud bit smooth on the road. Can't beat this deal!
I have been ordering tires from "Tires Easy" for years and never have had a problem. I'm greatly satisfied!
Wow! Didn't expect this from these tires!
Great tires for a great price. I put them. On an 06 Honda Odyssey Touring and they blew me away with price to value ratio. Very quiet and nice wet weather performance. Will buy again.
Buying tires online for a Camry in order to sell it. I've always made treadwear the primary factor. Couldn't bring myself to buy the absolute cheapest tires because they really appeared to be of such poor quality. These Achilles tires were barely more expensive - with an outstanding treadwear rating! Hopefully the will prove to stand up to their manufacturer's claims. Had them on a few months and have driven a few hundred miles. Thankfully they're great so far because it turns out that I'll be keeping the Camry longer than anticipated.

You get what you pay for. They handle fine, but are very noisy at high speeds especially on backtop. I would not recommend these if you want a quiet ride. Good if you need cheap tires in a hurry or if you are getting rid of the car.
M happy with quality n fast shipping in 4 days at my door step, deserve 5*****
SUPERB tires at a great savings!
Wonderful tires at an very affordable price! I am a REPEAT CUSTOMER, being very satisfied with the service and unbeatable service and delivery after the sale!
Lou Jaksetich Struthers, Oh

Just wish I could find somebody to put them on reasonably.
Great tires for the price!
these are worth what they cost.
concentric and balanced out well. good overall grip when dry and provide good feel. caution is advised though in the wet on slick pavement(tar and chip-etc). would i purchase another set? yes.
Great tires for a great price. I will never buy tires anywhere else ever again.
Tires are performing great and they come at a great low price.
Vary good tires at a great price
Have had the tires on my Ford Edge for three months and so far they have performed very well.

This was such an easy way to get tired for a good price!! Wonderful experience over all and will definitely purchase my next set of tires here!
Work well for the price in Maine.
Work well for the price in Maine. I have them on a Subaru.
Good sturdy tires
Great quality tire with an amazing price!
We've put about 10,000 miles on these tires in my 2016 Sienna AWD. We went from run flats that were loud and harsh and wore terribly. These tires look great have an amazing tread wear rating and are super affordable, especially with the free shipping. Will definitely buy again.
So far - So good
About 5000 miles on tires and still looking new.
Smooth ride, good traction, awesome value
These tires are a great value

Tires are worth the money
Tires great in wet and rainy conditions quality For the money
Very pleased with the tires.
We have used your Company several times and we also have family members who also order their tires from your Company as well and we are all very satisfied. Thanks.
Ordered before noon on a Tuesday, and they were delivered the next day!! Had them put on to my car and they have been great. I recommend tire-easy to anyone looking for new tires.
Outstanding and Inexpensive
Bought these for my sons 99 Honda Civic. This was my top choice due to tread life, all season, and price. These hit the mark perfectly. So far great tread life and low road noise. Usually with tires with high tread life they are loud as the wear out. These have stayed quite so far. We live in Colorado and these give great traction in low to moderate snow. I haven’t had the chance to test them in snow over 6” yet though. But they handle and grip pretty well in snow and on ice. Even driving in the rain hasn’t been a problem. Not many companies can beat the price. Achilles is on of the top brands, they are more compared to Toyo, Nexen, or even Falken in design and price. They are a pretty good and up incoming tire brand. And are building a pretty good reputation.
Great tires for the price
These tires are great for the price and have performed well so far definitely a worth it!
They seem to handle very well in the rain. Fairly quiet and seem to ride nice. A good value priced tire
Very happy with price and tires.
Great price! Great tires!
Really good tires
Good tires honestly they're cheap and fast shipping highly recommend
Tires are a very important part of a cars safety and handling, and I would pay more for a safer and better handling tire, but this tire even at a value cost isn't a compromise. I highly recommend them!
