Top Accelera Alpha Review

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Infiniti Q45 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 900 average miles
I just finished a 900 mile trip through the smokey mountians in the rain, I did not experience any drift, aqua planing or any loss of traction. Tires did fine in the dry as well. They are just as good a tire as the Bridgestone Potenzas they replaced.

Latest Accelera Alpha Reviews

Given 13% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 SXi (205/55 R16) on mostly town for 2,000 easy going miles
Do not buy these tyres if you value your life or car.
So many people on this site just unfortunately do not know enough about tyres to post reviews.
These tyres are dangerous I am in the process of removing a relatively new set from my new partners car.
Let's look at the facts these are cheap as chips tyres wet grip E you only get what you pay for.
Big brand company's spend thousands of pounds developing New tyres experimenting with different compounds, rubbers and construction unfortunately the same cannot be said for these.
My local tyre dealer who I have known for years does not know how these tyres get a European safety rating ! Yes that bad. The handling is terrible and with over 5mm of tread left my partner who is no racing driver does not understand what is wrong with her car skidding and feeling unsafe on wet roads I new straight away its terrible tyres ! Going to change the lot asap.
These are budget price and ditch finding road holding don't be fooled by people rating these tyres as good if you want good then do yourself a favour and spend some money on a quality brand or at least a good quality mid range tyre. Remember your life and car are worth it as this is the only thing between you and the road. Enough said I think.

Given 39% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A3 Sportback (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 23 average miles
Just come back from having two of these tyres replaced on the front of an A3.The tyres had come supplied by a dealer with the car 2 years ago.

The best thing you can say is they don't wear quickly. Or much at all. 23,000 miles and still legal. I suspect the rubber compound is very hard.

Bad news? The left tyre developed a large radial crack on the inside wall that I only spotted by chance. When both tyres were removed they had very uneven wear. Tyre pressures were spot on.

Wet grip was poor, road noise was horrendous and the handling awful.

Replaced with some Pirelli's (not my first choice but it was a distress buy) and my ears are already thanking me.

Chap at the garage said he often see's Acellera tyres come in with the radial cracks on the inner and outer wall.

I'd avoid these tyres.

Given 43% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Fitted to my Mondeo ST220, initially thought these tyres were half decent for the price and to be fair in the dry they perform well - HOWEVER, in the wet these tyres are VERY dangerous. Driving on a roundabout in the wet at 10-15mph will induce heavy under-steer, I've ended up crossing lanes and nearly forced someone to my left into the barriers as a result. Traction control light flickers away constantly in the wet even trying to accelerate on a straight road at 60mph in the wet and tyres can't find traction. With 2 young kids travelling with me most of the time i am replacing these tyres ASAP and would advise everyone not to buy them if thinking about doing so and if you have them on your car get them replaced! Shocking tyre in the wet!!!

Given 50% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda MX5 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Anyone driving anything sporty or rear wheel drive should seriously avoid these tyres. Driving a modest 160bhp MX5 2.0 Roadster, these came fitted by the dealership I bought the car from. To be honest I'm surprised I can still write this review (and am still walking the earth).

Now, I'm not a crazy driver and don't push hard, but it's a sporty car with great cornering... Or so it should be WITHOUT these tyres. With the tyres the slightest bit of damp on the roads and you have a death trap, even at slow speeds as there is just no grip.

I recognise that few on here with saloons etc. love these tyres and I'm sure that's all good, but anyone with any grunt under the bonnet, avoid at all costs if you want to stay in one piece.

Given 32% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320i Msport (255/30 R19) on for 0 miles
Bought these as a replacement for Goodyear f2 asymmetric which lasted only 3000 miles!!! These tyres are fine in the dry but the slightest bit of moisture on the road and it's like driving on ice!!! Only been on my rear wheel drive bmw for 2 weeks and they have to go! Even driving in a straight line on the motorway at about 60mph feels unsafe!!!
