225/50 17 Tyre Review Highlights

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Nexen N6000 scored 99% while driving a Honda Accord
Driving on a combination of roads for 21794 average miles
These tyres lasted 21,794 miles before replacement, and there was still at least 3mm of tread, but with winter coming I don't like to take chances. What was really good was the way the tyres wore evenly. Performance-wise, cannot fault them. I've seen a few reviews knocking Nexen but my experience has been extremely positive. Only gave 9/10 for wear because I hoped they would last a bit longer, but I'm probably just being an optimist!! Would have happily replaced with the same, but could not find the same tyres from my regular supplier at the right price, so went for Maxxis Z4S. Will let you know how these do.

Maxxis MA Z4S Victra scored 97% while driving a Audi a6 avant 3.0 tdi s line
Driving on a combination of roads for 200 spirited miles
Previously on Continentals Sport Contact 2 , been very happy with casual driving and occasional wild moment of going crazy and squeezing everything that factory gave me. Tried these Maxxis tyres and within minutes i gain a lot of confidence, they stick to the road so well in dry and wet conditions! Amazing tyre all round i would say they as gd as the contis for fraction of a price! The only down side is that they r a little louder not much. Def recommend these tyres!!!!
