Very good tyres for a '70's classic Rover. Would buy again if they hadn't discontinued the size. Back to Vredestein,also excellent tyres!

I've got a few cars and go through lots of tyres, I've finally settled on these as they offer the best all round performance for the money

Sublime feedback, good dry grip. Wet grip is reasonable, but progressive release in the wet means safe and/or good fun whichever your preference. Did fine in the snow, again very progressive. Comfortable, silent running. Didn't do too well on the sheet ice in January but then it's not a winter tyre. Long lasting, got 22,000 miles out of my current set, probably another 2000 to go. Will but again unless this site suggests something better.

Bought these tyres instead of Dunlop SP01 What a mistake to make. fronts were down to 2mm in 14000 easy miles. SP01 used to last 18/20000. Hankooks are cheaper but not better value

I was presently surprised by these tyres. As good as the average Michelin Primacy/Bridgetone Dueler. Much cheaper. Handles well and very quiet. Had Yokohama C.Drive. Was good but lasted only 30,000 kms.

Driving on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
I have had these tyres on my Mkiv Golf GTI for about a year now. They replaced a pair of Michelin Pilots at the front.

These tyres have passable grip in the dry at best but the turn in is very poor. The assurance on the turn in an through the corners from the old tyres is gone. It feels like a much heavier car now that just wants to keep going straight when I turn in even at low speeds. It is very unnerving.

The grip in the wet is a joke. It is actually dangerous. Spinning the wheels under moderate second gear acceleration is embarrasing.

Too early to tell about wear. It's a shame they won't wear to justify purchase of new tyres!

As for comfort yes they are reasonably quiet but there is nothing comfortable about suddenly losing grip at moderate speeds in the wet.

I would never buy these tyres ever again. They are just dangerous whenever it rains I am on the edge of my seat
