Top Marshal Matrac TX KU17 Review

Given 43% while driving a MINI Cooper D (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 2,000 average miles
Fine in the dry, hopeless for in the wet.
In the wet the traction is dramatically reduced and cornering is hopeless. Huge understeer. You must dramatically slow down for cornering in the wet.
Probably the worst wet weather tyres I can remember in 30 years of driving.

Given 67% while driving a Alfa Romeo 159 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
On when I bought the car, so far did some 10000 miles. Tyres feel and look strong. Don't seem bothered by roughing it against the kerb. Dry grip is pretty good.
On the downside, I had problems with jiggly steering with these tyres. Some road surfaces can suddenly pull sideways. At 5K miles I had to switch back/front because the steering was pulling to left even after full 4w balancing. Though there could be other causes for this, switching tyres solved the problem.
Overall ok for the price, especially for commuter cars.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 73% while driving a Evolution (215/40 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 14 spirited miles
The front understeers a little in the wet and then the rear steps out if you push it a little moor. Push it more again and you can easily powerslide controllably round roundabouts, keeping the front pointing in the right direction and the rears giving it large in a sideways motion.

Generally, the tyres are great in the dry - inspiring confidence and allowing all 350bhp to be firmly planted through all 4 wheels.

In the wet though,you have to keep your wits about you as you can be easily caught out. Even breaks traction in 3rd when full boost comes on song...

Given 57% while driving a Alfa Romeo GT 3.2 (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
Not enough grip while braking at high-speed(like 100mph over) and curving at hill road, especially in not so warm temp. at the tire's surface.
Road noise level is not so good, and not so comfort. But cost performance is very good, totally.

Given 63% while driving a Audi 100 quattro turbo (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 spirited miles
These tyres did not inspire confidence and had limited cornering grip in the wet (not due to lack of tread).
They made the car's steering very twitchy, even roadmarkings would deflect the steering. The tyres did last well (at least 25000 miles with tread to spare). When these tyres were replaced with Goodyear F1's the exessive twichyness through the steering disappeared and the car felt noticably more stable at speed. On the other was replacement Goodyear F1s only lasted 15000 miles. Despite the long life I would not recommend them.
