225/50 17 Tyre Review Highlights

Nokian WR A3 rated 100% while driving a Audi A6 Avant 2.0TDI
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 average miles
I bought these tyres for my car having spent last winter on budget winter tyres and paying the price with catastrophic understeer as soon as the weather warmed up.

The reviews on this site convinced me that Nokian A3s were worth a go and so far, after 2000 miles in normal, non-wintery conditions, I have to say that I'm delighted with them.

I spend half my time doing short local trips but my work means I also spend a fair chunk of time on motorways. Locally, the car drives as normal and much to my surprise, it does the same up and down the A1. Road noise is minimal and the economy doesn't appear to have taken a hit either.

Having read Mike's incredibly comprehensive review on these tyres, I have decided to perform my own 12 month test with these tyres to see how they fair in all conditions. If they hold up as well as the summer tyres I've just replaced (I got 12,000 miles from the front 2), then I don't see any reason to buy summer tyres again.

My initial conclusions on these tyres is that for a winter tyre, I doubt you can get better, not just for the money, but full stop!

Highly recommended!!!

Altenzo Sports Comforter rated 100% while driving a Audi A6 3.0 TDI Quattro
Driving on mostly town for 1000 average miles
I bought these tyres a month ago. Driven almost 1000 km, no problem what so ever. I went through all review after purchase and became worried for sliding in wet condition. Well so far the grip is fantastic and road noise is very low. I bought it because of low price. Here in eastern europe we have summer tyres and winter tyres, summers are short, so I didn't wanted to spend 100 euros for 1 tyres. I bought all 4 for 200 euros+15 euros for changing. I am fully satisfied.

Falken EUROALL SEASON AS200 rated 100% while driving a Ford S Max
Driving on mostly town for 0 easy going miles
Having had all season tyres on previous cars and requiring new tyres on my current vehicle I was always going to go back to all season. I used this website to decide which suited my needs and ended up going for Falken Euroall season AS200. We're only just encountering the cold spells of winter and I can confirm i am more than happy with my choice of tyre. We are driving along routinely without any complications compared to other road users within the town. There is clearly a need for these at the moment and I would definetly buy again. Not really done high mileage on them so couldn't comment on wear but I didn't want to leave a negative feedback with out due reason.

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons rated 100% while driving a Ford S Max
Driving on a combination of roads for 100 average miles
Just got these tyres for the front of my s-max after weeks of research. I want a tyre that ticks all the boxes so i went for these. Good tread pattern, quiet, 300 treadwear rating, Winter rated even the guy from the tyre fitters was impressed by them. Will find out how good they really are over the next 6 months or so when the bad weather comes. I'll post another review then.

Semperit Speed Grip 2 rated 100% while driving a Opel
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
These tires were suggested to me by my tire dealer. Although they are just a few days old, and winter is not here yet, they are smooth, quiet and grip the dry road well.

Excellent dry and wet grip, super quiet, super comfortable. I had previously Continental, and I must say that these tires are nozaj excellent and I dare say that even better.

Primewell Sport 910 rated 100% while driving a Ford S Max Titanium X Sport
Driving on mostly country roads for 43000 spirited miles
Totally amazed at the quality of these tyres, no matter how hard I push I have not managed to get them to let go, wear rate is very low and noise levels also very low. Comfort is superb as is cost, will continue to buy these and put them on the wifes car also.

Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 spirited miles
Can't understand mr Volvo 400 miles and gives rubbish feedback that is useless and heavily biased.
I have done 20,000 miles with these and they are simply superb not good because they're cheap they are great price doesn't come into it I will not be buying the Firestone Michellin Dunlop and Continental that had had previously used these wipe the floor against all of them, premium product at a rock bottom price, try some you will not be dissapointed.
