Given 19% while driving a BMW X5 E53 3.0d (285/45 R19 W) on mostly country roads for 6,000 average miles
Bought my X5 with these tyres on the rears with 6mm of tread. Had never heard of them before and on my cars I always fit Continental Rainsport 3s wherever possible with their outstanding grip, wet or dry.
I've done 4,000 miles now and the tread is down to 3mm already so not at all long lasting. In the dry they are reasonable but pushing on at a roundabout and the rear never seems planted.
However, in the wet it is a different story. They are absolutely lethal with virtually no grip even on a moderately wet surface. Taking a mini roundabout at 15mph and the back end slid across the road no problem at all. White van man behind had to take avoiding action.
Fitting Avon ZX7s shortly.

Given 47% while driving a BMW M3 (255/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 100 average miles
These are the tyres on the courtesy wheels put on my 2001 M3 whilst my own wheels are refurbed. They are fine in the dry, but in the wet they are lethal. Even in the damp. They have absolutely no business on a powerful car, or a car that you want to go round a corner on wet roads without taking a chunk out of the nearest kerb or ditch. In the wet an oiltanker has a shorter stopping distance. These are grade A ditchfinders and they are quite simply dangerous.

Given 54% while driving a Suzuki Swift (185/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
I drive a 2017 Suzuki Swift RS (ZC13S) My driving style is a mix of decent and aggressive. Roads here (Sri Lanka) are bad. just bad. I had to replace 2 tyres as my front OEM Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 got damaged sidewalls (my fault, drove with low air pressure). The Accelera PHI-R were the only tyres available at that time in the nearest tyre shop.
Dry grip is decent and ride is definitely softer than Ecopias. In average speeds they perform well but tend to squeal under hard cornering and feedback is low. Turn-in is not very sharp and under-steers if pushed too hard. Wet grip is decent but I would not recommend driving hard in the rain. Cannot predict when they would give out. Tyre noise is less than the ecopias as well.
They seem to be durable as after 15,000KM the thread depth maybe 50% remaining. But would not buy again. Good for people looking for a budget tyre to drive decently. Do not buy If you drive hard.

Audi (255/35 R19) on mostly motorways for 20,000 average miles
I switched to Accelera PHi from Hankook Vensus purely on budget, prior to that i had the Bridgestone Potenza R003 in 18 inch tyre. The Accelera performed reasonable, considering I do 800km per week. it is definitly a hard compound tyre and the noise is pronounced at 110km/ph on both concrete and bituman roads. all up 30,000km got out of them, that is 5-10k kilometers better than Bridgestone and Hankook.

Given 71% while driving a BMW 520d Sport (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
F10 light on the back for 275 width standard rubber, shows up poor tyres very quickly in the cold and wet pulling away at junctions
Bought as an emergency expected to have Sport Maxx repaired (non runflat) but poor batch from Mytyres splitting and age cracking so had to fit the Accellera. Expected to find the nearest ditch, spent the first few days driving very carefully, but after careful testing I can confirm this tyre to be surprisingly OK, similar is not slightly better grip than the SportMaxx, not as good as Hankook evo2,but better than the Conti (5?) runflats it came with from the factory.

Don't even turn the key if it's wet.

Given 31% while driving a Volvo V70 2.4T (205/55 R15) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Shocking tyres in the wet - buy something else if there is any chance of rain anywhere near where you are going. Volvo's are pretty sure footed, but my V70 just understeers across the road when it is wet at 20 mph. Really, these are dangerous :-(

Given 39% while driving a Vauxhall Astra (235/40 R19 W) on for 8,000 average miles
Tyres worn out after 8 - 8.5k miles. Terrible wet grip. Occasionally car would start to skid on large roundabouts at low/moderate speeds. Cheap but would definitely pay more next time for something better

Given 33% while driving a Jaguar XF (255/35 R20 W) on mostly motorways for 1,000 average miles
These tyres are terrible in the wet. The worst tyre I have ever had. Had other budget brands in the past but others in my experience are far superior (120,000 miles of same car ownership).
