Event WL905 Reviews

Given 49% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo (205-55-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20,000 easy going miles
Car bought with these on the front and they have lasted well but wet grip is terrible, almost dangerous. Wheels spin when setting off even without much power applied (Only a 1.8 Mondeo !) and slide very easily on corners. Now got some Michelin Energy savers on and they are a massive improvement. You get what you pay for, spend a bit more and get something decent.

Given 31% (breakdown) while driving a Saab Automobile 9 3 Aero HOT (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Very poor tyre, hopless in the wet making them very dangerous.However the most alarming problem with these tyres are radial splits in the inside walls, it seems to be a very common accurance. I had four of these fitted, two of which developed splits within 4k miles, all four replaced within 8k. In my opinion these tyres should be banned! DO NOT BUY!!!!

Given 27% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Auris (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
Bought car in June and it came with these tyres on front wheels (Toyota Auris SR 1.6). They are not bad in dry but are absolutely useless in the wet -no grip -wheelspin on 3rd in an Auris??!! They will be replaced as soon as possible and definitely before winter.

Driving on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Very dangerous in the wet, in roundabouts they just lose control all the time, even at very low speeds. I would never buy them again.

Given 27% (breakdown) while driving a Honda Accord (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Absolutely shocking tyre!! Just bought a car with these on and in the dry they are just dangerous beyond belief. The slightest touch of the throttle ends up in a wheel spin in the wet and they just offer no confidence at all, almost as if they disengage the steering wheel from the wheels themselves. I hate replacing tyres when they clearly don't need replacing in terms of tread but these scare me!!

Just a very bad Tyre. I would normally say that wet grip is a joke but putting your family at risk is not a joke. DO NOT BUY THIS TYRE!

Driving on a combination of roads for 600 easy going miles
Put 2 of these on my seat leon fr 170. cant believe how awful they are in the wet. Its like driving on ice with bald tyres. As said in previous reviews if you value your life do not buy these tyres.
So just ordered Uniroyal rainsport 3's.

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 147 (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 7,000 average miles
The Alfa is my wifes daily driver and find the tyre serviceable. We recently drove to north Wales through a torrential down poor which was prolonged, the a14 was awash the tyres performed well in these condition ( no aquaplaning ). Breaking was also with out surprises. All in all for the money I am a satisified customer. With my job I drive 22,000 miles yearly so I feel my opinion counts for something.I am not saying that compared to other more expensive tyres they will match them ,but they are not as bad as a lot of people are making out . These tyres are on all 4 wheels.

Given 14% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320d (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1,000 average miles
Have these tyres on rear of BMW 320d. Car came with them fitted, they are horrendous in the wet, loosing grip at low speeds on most roundabouts and often on corners. With almost no wear on them, they are going in the bin this weekend. Do not buy these if you value your car or life!
