while driving a
Nissan R32 GTST
(225/40 R18) on
a combination of roads
Truly awful tyre. These were brand new, already fitted to my car when I purchased it and thought I'd leave a review for anyone considering them.
In the dry, the tyres have some (limited) grip, but screech horrendously as you approach anywhere near the limit. My car is fairly light and has had a recent alignment but this hasn't alleviated this. Dry feedback is poor and loss of grip happens without much warning.
In the wet, they are 100 times worse. Very poor traction for straight line acceleration, and lateral grip is even worse. The rear end breaks away with zero warning so I just assume I have no grip at any time.
Any cars with anything approaching a reasonable amount of torque is going to suffer from wheelspin or interference from traction control etc.
I wouldn't recommend fitting these tyres to any car; not a city car that rarely sees over 40mph and especially nothing going on a motorway or country roads. Budget offerings from other brands would blow these away and they are downright dangerous.
