Driving on a combination of roads for 50,000 easy going miles
Came on a new Nissan Tilda Latio, an unremarkable tyre well suited to our unremarkable car. But the tyre and the car keep working, are comfortable enough and when driven by a sensible driver are fuel efficient and safe. I recommend them if they are on sale and you want something which is reliable and durable.

Economical tire with good overall performance.
Threadwear was quite good, they lasted about 60000km, and that is a lot !
My advice is that for summer tires people should always check performance in wet conditions in the first place, dry performance in the second place for an average car. Then you'll be fine in any conditions.

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 3 Series (195-65-15-V)
Driving on mostly town for 42,000 easy going miles
Came as OEM in my Mazda3, very noise as the Mazda 3 has already known noise problem, their only good is the long lasting, I had done 68000Km since new and still going, I believe it can last for another few thousand km before reach the legal limited .Yet some "slip" happened during the wet last week, so I'm going to replace it, thinking to try the Pirelli P7.

Given 40% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 3 Series (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 30,000 easy going miles
Not rubbish, but not "good" either.
OEM on our (Aussie) Mazda 3. Road noise is very high, awful in the wet.
Wear rate is excellent, but I do drive like a grandpa!

Given 64% (breakdown) while driving a Kia Motors (225-75-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 19 average miles
We're on our second set of these on our Kia Sedona. The original set lasted around 12,000 miles which isn't great even considering the weight of the car.

They're sort of a jack of all trades but a master of none; they just do their job in all conditions. Grip on snow/ice is notably better than a dedicated summer tyre but the wet performance is probably their real weak point. Dry grip is good but I'd be worried of Bridgestone couldn't make a tyre that performed well in the dry.

Road noise/comfort seem ok, no complaints really. Like I said earlier, they just seem to do their job really.

Because of the odd tyre size, these are the only tyres readily available at most places. There's a lot of 4x4 tyres in this size which would be pointless on a Sedona. I'd like to try other tyres but it just seems like a lot of hassle to be able to!

Would I buy again? I think I have to...

Given 57% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Punto 1.2 8v (185-65-15-T)
Driving on mostly country roads for 2,000 average miles
Bridgestone B250 tyres were on a Fiat Punto rental car in Italy. Cornering on dry tarmac was amazingly good - no squealing or drifting; they were similarly good on wet tarmac but with lower grip (as should be expected). Front wheel drive traction was also good on both dry and damp tarmac; warm or cold temperatures did not affect the grip of these summer tyres, but there was no snow or frost on which to test them in winter conditions.

Three negatives with these Bridgestones: they are not comfort tyres, and they are not quiet (although in fairness there are noisier tyres around). Every road surface gives a different sound, and every bump causes movement of the whole car, constantly letting you know that all four tyres are working; they are never silent even on the smoothest tarmac. Also, two different times under heavy braking (avoiding dogs running in the road) they lost enough grip to activate the Fiat's ABS; once was on wet concrete and once on dry tarmac. This lack of braking effectiveness was in unfortunate and surprising contrast to their normally strong cornering grip and traction under power. In summary: if these were on a car I had purchased or rented, I would wear them out then buy different, quieter tyres to replace them.

Given 51% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan Micra (175-60-15-H)
Driving on mostly town for 4,000 spirited miles
These tyres were OEM fitted on my k13 Nissan Micra. They were really bad both on wet and dry roads. Braking distance was too long. I also had some accidents because of these tyres. So I removed them once winter came and the next summer I didn't use them. Before 4k miles I threw them away. I wouldn't recommend these tyres, and if you have these, I recommend throwing them away. You won't regret it.
