Top Achilles 2233 Review

Given 47% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo V50 estate (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 500 easy going miles
I have goodyear tyres on front wheels, achilles on rear wheels.
On rainy roads the rear looses grip easily.
Today the skid control system got busy at a highway exit turn.
You never know when you need the grip, I recommend you buy
something else!

Given 64% (breakdown) while driving a Subaru Impreza (205/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Better than expected for the money. Driving on New Zealand chip sealed and gravel roads, beaches, launching and retrieving my boat at slippery ramps for the last 30000km + and they're half worn. Balanced well, quieter than the Dunlop SP Sport 01's and better grip on gravel roads. Great handling in the dry however wet weather grip is not too great, have to be a bit careful around roundabouts and taking corners in the wet. They've gotten noisier as they've worn down also. Best tires in their price bracket. A bit of a shame about the wet weather grip but it's bearable.

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 18,000 spirited miles
Used these for 20,000+kms with great wear rate and it worked extremely well in both wet and dry roads. never had any pulling or aquaplaning! Noise level was much lower than previous Kumho KU31.

Given 64% (breakdown) while driving a Honda Accord Euro (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
A cheap tyre with fair value for money. Compared to other cheap tyres, it wears well, grips fair in the dry, is quiet & fairly comfortable.
The bad is that it needs a lot more steering wheel rotation to turn a corner at speed. My son said it looks like I'm driving on dirt.
In the wet, it's a shocker. OK for normal driving but don't approach your dry road driving speeds as it slides easy, breaks traction easy. Take it easy in the wet

I bought the car with two 2233's on them and I was quiet impressed with the performance and lasting of the tire. I have a full set on the car at the moment and she corners very well and has excellent braking ability. Wet road are not that great but they hold if you drive normal.
