while driving a
(225/40 R18) on
mostly country roads
Shocking shocking shocking. Steer clear, nice pun but steering in the wet isn't something you can do with these sadly. In my defence I never bought them, more inherited them with a car i bought and although they have 6mm tread left they are now gone and replaced with yokohomas.
I cover a thousand miles a week on mostly rural (often wet) roads in my company Megane, which has kindly been fitted with Pirelli tyres but when in my private car I am constantly on edge. I lost the back end at 45 mph, probably would have lost the whole car if it weren't for the Goodyears on the front mind. If it is ever raining I'd use my company car on a private trip to avoid the roller coaster ride on the auto grips.
Seriously, stay away. I have no idea how they can be legal in this wet country
