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.

Given 31% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 TS Veloce (205/50 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
Once again, I bought a car which the previous owner tried to ruin by fitting very poor tyres. These may not be the worst tyres I've ever tried but in comparison to my other Alfa 156 which runs Pirelli P7 Cinturato tyres, these are truly poor.

The biggest issue is that until the front tyres wore down enough, the rear was unstable in both wet and dry conditions. Many of the suspension arms were new, the others good and even playing with the suspension geometry offered no improvement. The car runs straight and true but these tyres are just so poor. It is hard to gauge grip as feedback is poor and breakaway and recovery is not very controllable, enjoyable or recommended. Traction and braking are notably poor aspects.

Ride comfort and noise is not great and slightly worse than the Continental Premium Contact 2 tyres which were previously on the other 156. All tyres went out of balance and have been rebalanced with quite a lot of balance weights which I usually take as a sign of poor construction.

Wear is irrelevant but I'd say quite poor. In any case, the tyres' reduction in already poor performance means I just won't take the chance to wear these right down to the same level I would with premium brands or decent mid range tyres like Hankook.

My advice is either pay more for Hankook or Pirelli touring tyres or just simply save money and buy cheaper and better Rovelo tyres which I can honestly say are superior to these.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Infiniti G37 (225/55 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
For a tire that I couldn't find absolutely, or almost no information at all, I've been trying to tell myself to get rid of it and get the tried and proven. But the more I test it's abilities in Rain, Light snow and Dry roads (I live in Seattle area), it handles smoothly. It could be that I'm driving on an G37X which is all wheel drive. Light snow, turning can make me slide forward instead of turning and rain is no problem at all.

Given 30% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320 d (225/50 R16) on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
I had these on the back of my BMW 3 Series and i am sure they were trying to kill me. The slightest hint of a wet road and the back end would let go. Ran them for about 3000 miles. The final straw was when my wife was driving at about 60mph on a damp dual carriageway in a straight line and span the car. Luckily it was late at night and didn't hit anything. These were gone a couple of days later and uniroyals put on. Car was back to its old self again. Worst tyres i have ever had.

Given 24% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A1 (215/45 R16) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
Horrendous tyres. Only thing good about them them is the dry grip. Everything else is appalling.

They were fitted to a 62 plate Audi A1. Couldn't corner in the wet, encountered very heavy understeer. Wouldn't recommend these tyres. These tyres came fitted to the car when I brought it.

Fitted Toyo tyres and already I've seen a massive improvement.
