(205/55 R16) on
a combination of roads
I live in the Vendée, France, and August? I wrote a review of the Good Year Efficient Grip tyre so this is an update.
Also I am a Brit wrinkly of 74 yrs.
Tyre depth, 5.5 front, 6.5 rear.
So, température 8 degs, road WET-WET6-WET!
Roundabout on main road, nought about, Dacia Stepway Tce 90. Floored it going into the roundabout, bit of slip from wheels.
Exit, nearside wheel slipped a bit then then gripped.
Dacia went the direction I wanted, no slide. Mind you, Top Gear France used the Dacia Sanderro for 'fasted lap', never lost it.
I had to severely provoke the tyres to slip, but nought wrong.
Next test, dual carriageway, downhill with a bend and drop down of gracient. Damp road.
I had a Renault Modus before the Dacia, Matador tyres, not nice on this bit.
Good Year tyres, OK, was a bit concerned on that bend but no problems.
Wife was not amused!
