Given 68% while driving a Ford Focus mk2 (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 4,000 spirited miles
Second winter with these on the car and they continue to be a good compromise tyre but are feeling a bit dated. Much better than summer tyres during the short period of snow we had, but they were still struggling a bit getting off my drive and initial pulling away in the street. Once moving they were good and progressive.

Main minor point is dry and wet weather braking. When performing an emergency stop the ABS kicks in way faster than with even budget summer tyres.

I've used these before on a previous car a number of years ago, but bought some second hand from a friend for a new car I'm running.

In between I've had more modern winter tyres and these definitely feel quite 'last generation' especially when it comes to wet grip and braking.

In dry cold weather I've found them very good, they give a nice gritty feedback through the wheel and I can easily feel how much grip I have. In the wet this applies too, however grip levels even in the cold are less than both my summer tyres and newer winter tyres.

We had a fair bit of snow this winter, and these tyres still did very well in both compacted and slushy snow, even when quite deep. Where cars on summer tyres were getting stuck, I powered on by. Lateral grip in the snow was also impressive.

Given 50% while driving a Volkswagen passat (205/65 R15) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
May be it is a good tyre for Germany, but not for East/North Europe. On icy, snowy road it is crap.
