    Given 42% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320D M Sport (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
    driving the m sport 320d bmw 2011 made for 2 years now in Cyprus with 4 Michelin pilot sport run flat. amazing tires in highways and feels so safe in high speeds ( 170 km per hour ) amazing handling and excellent in cornering and in sporty driving. due to the stiff suspension of my car and with the combination of the stiff side walls of the run flats, driving in my town with those nasty roads we have here is not good. due to the wear of the 2 front tires, i decided not to have runflats so i put in front 2 linglong green max 225 40 18. these tires are so soft and driving in town with normal speed are wonderful. smooth drive and smooth steering wheel and absorbing vibration of the nasty roads very good and also i get one liter per 100km fuel economy more. then i tested them in sporty driving. in cornering and in round abouts with higher speed are under steering, loosing grip, the light of traction control coming on and the feeling of the handling is very bad. then i tested them in high way with maximum 170km per hour. the handling was VERY BAD and i felt very unsafe. these tires are excellent in town driving under normal speed, even in the high way under normal speed, max ( 110 km ) but NO WAY for sporty driving. my tests was made on dry roads with ambient temperature 20 degrees c. tomorrow i will replace them loosing 140 euro for these 2 tires. i will try 2 Michelin pilot sport 3 non runflat 160 euro each, so the brand will be the same with the rear runflat tires i have and i will do again the sporty driving test and i will get back here to share my review. i hope i helped...

    Given 66% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Stilo (225/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 8,000 spirited miles
    Whilst my car is no Porchse, nor is it a BMW 7 series, however, I cover and continue to every wk-end 520mile round journey. Approximately 80 mile is very very narrow, pot holed back twisty country lanes, leading to M4, and M25. I have yet to encounter ice or snow, however, I have driven in heavy at times vision down to 5metre heavy water logged roads. These tyres have not let me down, and I push the car hard on every inch of the journey. The grip in dry weather has not diminished in wet, and to be honest, I read the drivers review from.Cyprus and glad I ignored it. Not the quietest, however, found it hard to knock them for the price. Couldn't quote on wear, as coming up to a year and don't think they are down 50%.

    Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 206 GTI 180 (205/40 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
    After one year use of this tire i am convinced that is very good low budget tire for use on normal driving mode

    Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 208 1.6 vti (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
    My Peugeot 207 was fitted with a brand new set of greenmaxes when i bought it last year. I've now done just under 20000miles and they are now reaching the point when the fronts need replacing. These Tyres are excellent and i wouldnt hesitate to buy another set.

    Given 69% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 607 (235/50 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 22,000 average miles
    Bought 4 new tyres for my 607 2.2 hdi because of the German test
    I was looking for a silent cheap tyre.
    I life in the south of France and commute 140 km a day on the highway.
    Don't care to much about grip because the highway is strait.
    And since it is almost never wet I could not be bordered with that neither.

    A nice silent and comfy tyre.
    Nice feedback about grip, there is on corner near Aix en Provence where you can test this and it stays stable until high speed.
    Tyre wear is more than expected but did a 30k and still 4mm left.
    The only problem is that 2 out of 4 are unround.
    So I had the balanced at least 5 times and finally changed one rim but still rubbish
    Ordered 2 new ones and hope they are round otherwise the supplier is in trouble.
    I would recommend these tyres since the are 60 euro a piece and the next silent tyre in this dimension is at least 90 euro.
    But check it they are round otherwise you can lose the price advantage at the balancing shop.

    Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Yaris (175/65 R14) on a combination of roads for 80,000 spirited miles
    When I bought my used 2001 Toyota Yaris/Echo from a Toyota dealer, they fitted new tyres to the front. I was aghast to see they were cheap and nasty Chinese Linglongs. Three days later, after finding my light, fwd hatch was excessively tail-happy, I ditched the reputable brand rears and fitted matching Green Maxes. My weekly commute is 100km (600 miles) on a mix of country roads, highways and a winding, narrow 15km hill pass which goes from sea level to 555m. The car is driven quickly on the challenging hill road and in nearly three years of driving, 130,000km (80,000 miles) in total, I have not had a single fright with these tyres. Terrific grip and progression, dry and wet. The only arguable fault is they wear quicker than most tyres - but I have stuck with the brand unhesitatingly because a bit of extra wear, on a very cheap tyre, is a tiny price to pay for the reassuring grip. I can't vouch for them on big cars, but on lightweight hatches these are an excellent tyre at any price and an absurd bargain given their low price. And to reiterate, my car is driven briskly.
