225/50 17 Tyre Review Highlights

Falken EUROALL SEASON AS200 scored 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.

Nokian WR A3 scored 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!!!

Primewell Sport 910 scored 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.

Primewell Sport 910 scored 100% while driving a Ford Galaxy
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.

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons scored 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 scored 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.

Goodyear Vector 4Seasons scored 99% while driving a Jaguar X Type 3.0 SE auto
Driving on a combination of roads for 40 average miles
I bought these to use as all year tyres over two years ago, I live on the south coast so to be honest heavy snow is rarely a problem, however heavy rain is. I drive an Xtype AWD 3.0 as well as a Derv estate one, so the car's are surefooted anyway.
The little bit of inland snow that we have had over the last few years is really insignificant, but no worries whatsoever when I have had to. Must admit I quite enjoyed sprinting away from stuff in the snow with no wheelspin or wandering over the road wet or dry. The car being AWD the traction available even on wet T junctions has to be experienced to be believed, some of this is down to AWD, I suspect most of it is down to the Vector's.

In the heavy rain we have, they leave a virtual cloud behind me at motorway speeds, I can always see the section of road I've been driving over in the mirrors, that's the bit that looks almost dry. I use the M25 quite a bit too, I have to admit over the concrete sections there's a little drumming, but no more than the previous favourite tyre, (Hankook) that I had were.

I drive usually about 30,000 miles a year, and I change my tyres at 2.5mm mainly because I ride motorcycles as well and I know the risk of low tread depth. Lets just say after a year i still had 4mm of tread left. i know they start out with slightly more than the average tyre, but I call that wear exceptional. My bike I usually get 4,000 if I'm lucky.

I just bought another Xtype, a diesel estate that can carry a bit more "junk" than my saloon, it came with some Chinese Death finders on it. I've swopped them for Vectors and I feel like I have a safe vehicle again.

My wife's car has Hankook on it, because I was really happy with them on my Xtype so when they wear out it will be getting a set of these on it. She only drives about 3,000 a year so it probably won't be this year, but it will happen.

I also have a set of Snow tyres in the shed for my car. They stayed in there this last winter. mainly because I wanted to try the Vectors in full snow conditions. Unfortunately I never got the chance although we had some heavy hail that looked like it had snowed on the road, they handles it without any drama. The way the cars around me were slowing to a crawl, I can only assume that they were having skating lessons.

I've been driving now for well over 35 years. I'm tired, and have been told I should sleep at some point, you wouldn't want my fuel bill, but I've never experienced grip and confidence at the level that these tyres give me.
Enough said.
