Tyre Test Highlights

2016 Auto Express All Season Tyre Test - 1st of 6 tyres

  • Overall - A fine all rounder that's really safe in the wet and snow.

2016 AMS SUV All Season Tyre Test - 1st of 4 tyres

  • Overall - A well balanced tyre. A little understeer in the snow, good dynamics in the wet, good dry cornering but slightly weak under dry braking. An excellent winter bias all season tyre with low rolling resistance

2016 GF All Season Tyre Test - 1st of 11 tyres

  • Positive - Almost a match for the Dunlop in the snow and the Continental in summer conditions, good handling on dry surfaces

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat 500 (185/55 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 27,000 spirited miles
Well I've had these on since 2015, covered 21k and Have now been replaced with another all season (Pirelli Cinturato All Season) so feel I can give a fair assessment.

Wet handling is fairly good, no major suprises. Wear is good for all seasons, worn much better than the previous 4seasons gen 1 that were fitted. Snow and ice were impressive, got me around the French highlands and through Austria in the snow with minimal hassle (bar one week where I needed chains but the snow was incredible and even dedicated snow tyres wouldn't have done a thing to help)

Only real criticism I can level at them is that they feel incredibly numb at all speeds and all weather conditions, the never give a full feeling of being connected to the road which was a little unnerving but I came to be used to it after a while. Also dry handling is.....odd. They feel very floaty and loose, have had a few too many wheel spins at junctions and have skidded a few times on the same bend in the road I do every day on every tyre I've ever had in the last 10 years, this is the only one that's shown this behaviour. They never feel unsafe but don't instil confidence.

While they have done a fair job, with me travelling to Mainland Europe to visit family every winter and travelling through all weathers, I feel that the tyres on my wife's panda (Same Pirellis that have replaced these tyres on my car) perform better in the dry and a little more feel in all conditions, so I would consider those in the first instance as they seem to be more capable and more enjoyable to drive on. However if you can get the Vector 4Seasons Gen 2 at a good price they are by no standards bad, I just feel you can do a touch better.

Given 66% (breakdown) while driving a (185/55 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
While I have to admit these tyres are very comfortable in a road noise and ride quality way, I don't feel all that safe driving on them. I drive a fiat panda, not a fast car and not driven hard but they are very easy to spin the wheels and feel very loose and floaty on tight bends. Lost control of the rear of my car on a sweeping bend with a 60mph limit, I was only doing 35, back end just broke away with no warning. I don't feel that they are as good as my previous tyres (Bridgestone Ecopia EP150) and I'm enclined to change them well before they wear out. Not recommended.
