Top Accelera Alpha Reviews

Given 59% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta XR4 (ST) (205/40 R17) on mostly country roads for 18,000 spirited miles
These tyres perform well in dry conditions. They offer predictable grip and progressive feedback. In my case, this usually results in boiled powersteering fluid. Te he he he.

But in the wet.. Well, they are alarmingly rubbish. Around town they will understeer everywhere. The abs and stability control will flash like christmas lights. You need to be aware of their limits in the wet and drive accordingly, i.e. very cautiously.

They are cheap tyres that offer good dry performance. No point comparing them to something twice as expensive.

Given 47% (breakdown) while driving a Renault megane cc (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
If you drive very very slowly in the wet & dont try to acelerate away from a roundabout you might be ok. Mine were crap in the wet & the side walls split so having already made my mind up to change them before the winter I did it now. Oh boy what a difference to my car (Hankook fitted)I dont fear driving in the wet anymore.

Latest Accelera Alpha Reviews

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!!!

SEAT (215/45 R16) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
They where fitted ro my car when I bought it, a typical move for dealers shoving budgets on it
Initally they felt pretty normal, adequate dry grip, then i drove down a wet country lane, and discovered how bad these tyres are in the wet. The car feels nervous round corners in the wet, and will often lose grip suddenly, you literally can't carry any speed into a corner at all. And pulling off at lights is always interesting too, traction control light constantly flashing even in 3rd gear at times, and its a 1.2 TSI so hardly a Ferrari. These tyres are terrible, and id never buy them, id even call them unsafe.

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.
