while driving a
(205/55 R16) on
I already reviewed tyre at 9000 miles:
"Really good grip in wet, more than expected. In wet I drive them almost as it's dry and they really stick.
They are good and predictable in dry."
This has not changed. Tyre is really good, especially for the price. And they would last at least 10000 more miles judging by the thread wear.
BUT, I had to change them because they could not be balanced properly!
First when I changed from winter to summer, they balanced them (I went out for a coffee while they were doing it), I went home driving on motorway and my whole car was shaking from 50 mph. Driving 70 mph was impossible. So I went back next day to the shop, and they really tried to balance them but they couldn't. They would remove them from the wheel, put them again, etc to try to get them to be better. It was better, but not as it should be!
Because they have more life in them, I won't throw them, I will fit them to another vehicle that is only for city driving.
I bought Premium Contact 6 to replace them, and they are really really good (I'll leave review).
Because of this issue, I cannot recommend them to anyone who is driving outside of city.
