Cheaper tyres unfortunately give a lower mileage. This is because the rubber compound is softer and is missing vital rubber ingredient like silica and low quality carbon.

Warranty
No / minimal manufacturers warranty, buying a good quality tyre has the advantage of up to 5 year warranty and full replacement.

Construction Quality
Cheaper tyres have less material built into the casing (less Steel), This means the tyre may start to go out of round before the tyre has worn out.

Stopping Distance
Cheaper tyres generally have a longer stopping distance when braking
