Given 99% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus ST 225 (2003 2007) (225/40 R18) on mostly country roads for 8,000 spirited miles
Brilliant. For the money they handle so well. Better than Rainsports for me!

Given 49% (breakdown) while driving a Saab Automobile 9 3 Vector Sport TiD 150 Saloon (225/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 7,000 average miles
Planning to sell my car, I bought a pair of these cheap tyres replacing the Goodyear Eagle F1's on the front wheels of my Saab 1.9 Tid. Dry grip is acceptable, they seem to last quite long (been 7000 miles so far and they look new) and that's about it. Wet grip, feedback and handling are awful for what you'd expect from a 'performance tyre'. Goes in aquaplaning very easily, even when new.
These are NOT performance tyres as advertised. If you're looking for proper performance tyres you might be better off buying part-worn premium tyres like Conti Sportcontact, Michelin Pilot Sport etc. However, if you're only looking for a pair of tyres to run your car legally as I was, they will do the job.
Here's a test from erman vehicle inspection organisation GTÜ:

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen 1.8 20vT Sport (225/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 8,300 spirited miles
The tyre is excellent in dry conditions, sharp reactions, superb handling. It has an unbelievable mileage! I have now driven over 7.000 miles and has used LESS than 1MM !!! Expected life OVER 30.000 MILES!!!

On the wet, the tyre is not a s good as the premium brands, but still very effective. Handling is sharp again, and the tyre give a very good feeling to the steering.
Could be a bit more quiet at high speed , and it is very hard. This is excellent for the track, maybe a bit less for daily home to office journey.
Still, a very good tyre !! Good job!
