The tires are ok if you are not trying to compete against the big expensive brands, the sidewall is very tough and the tires can handle good, but the grip while breaking is not great ,I drove them for so long, around 50k,and they were pretty well, it's a great lasting tire as it comes to the price but sacrificing grip in both wet and dry.

These tyres are ok I suppose but very noisy. After they have started to ware down you'll be looking for a worn out wheel bearing, don't worry it is the sound these tyres make. They are very noisy at around 30mph, and you can feel the vibration through the steering too.

These tyres were on the car when I got it, I have also had some of these tyres before on a previous car and said I would never buy them again just down to the noise they make, you'll understand if you get some. Once you replace them your car will be so much quieter...

Worst tires ever purchased. Wore completely slick after less than 4,000 miles. Customer service was a joke - says only person that can authorize an adjustment is in China now.

They came already fitted when I bought my Vectra 2nd hand. They’re alright for general everyday use but bad on snow/ice and in the wet (I realise they’re a summer tyre). The ’tractor style’ symmetric pattern has worn into ‘wedge’ shapes, i.e. leading edge is lower than the front. The type of wear seems to be causing really annoying road noise (I’ve checked endlessly for worn bearings).

Basically a cheap and nasty tyre; I can’t wait until they’re bald and I can then stick on some NCT5’s

A bit noisier that previous Goodyears but general grip in wet and dry was fine.
Wear rate is amazing - Goodyears were lasting about 10k miles, these have lasted 35k!!
The best thing is the grip in snow and ice. I would have bought these as winter tyres. Struggled to get traction previously. Never had any problem in the snow with these despite paying about £85 each two years ago.

Good grip on dry but when still new, don't recommend to use in the wet, breaks traction quite easily

They seem to last very well and if that is what you want you will like them for that. Grip is mainly fair but poor on cold wet surface if pushing on. 12k covered still 10-12k left with tyre rotation. I would buy for any normal A-B use, more than good enough. Not as grippy as the Kumho fitted before but they were no great shakes either.
