Landsail CLV2 Tire Review & Rating
The Landsail CLV2 is billed as a higher performing all-season tire that is intended for use on light trucks, larger crossovers and all types of SUVs. The tire is available in a wide range of high speed ratings, and therefore has been designed with optimal performance at higher speeds as a primary development goal. The manufacturer has also built the tire with a sporty look to match the style of your performance vehicle.
A symmetrical tread pattern features larger outer shoulders and a continuous center rib that is built to deliver more precise steering and enhanced cornering stability. It should also help in reducing braking distances on dry pavement.
Four wide circumferential grooves help to improve grip when driving on wet roads by improving water evacuation. This design element helps to reduce the chances of hydroplaning while simultaneously improving cornering and overall handling on wet surfaces.
The contact patch has been maximized by large, stable shoulders. This further improves cornering and overall stability. Finally, a series of lateral and longitudinal grooves help increase traction and braking. Landsail offers a wide range of 16-18 inch sizes with the CLV2, and there is also a limited tread warranty provided.
- Reliable traction on both dry and wet road surfaces
- Quiet, smooth ride
- Low price
- Poor performance in winter weather conditions
- Tread wear
This particular Landsail model is an average performing tire, but for the lower price it makes an attractive option for a daily driver. This modestly priced all-season tire can provide you with good traction on dry and wet surfaces, as well as more than adequate cornering stability and all-around response, but compared to similar tires in its class the CLV2 has a few shortcomings.
The first one is a common problem for many value-priced all-season tires; winter performance. If your typical driving scenario involves mostly dry roads with the occasional light snow here and there, you’ll likely be fine, but the tire’s performance drops significantly in moderate winter conditions. Chances are if you’ll be encountering light snow or worse, you’ll want a tire with a more robust set of features.
Additionally, the tire’s tread life is less than desirable. This makes its price point less attractive, as you’ll have to replace it sooner.
Overall, the tire is pretty average for a value-priced all-season tire. If it matches your typical usage scenario, great… but if you can expand your budget even a little bit, there are many other better performing all-season tires available.
