Driving on a combination of roads for 23,000 easy going miles
Original michelins only lasted 15,000 miles on the front. Friend has same car with goodyears and has 22,000 and still plenty of wear left on the front.

Tyres swopped front to rear when new tyres fitted at 15k and these then lasted to 23,500miles.

Replaced with dunlops and improved comfort and better handling all round. I could not locate goodyears at time of purchase.

Driving on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
A worthy replacement for the standard Continental SportContact 3's that the car came with.

These have a bit more wet bias and slightly more complaint ride and less noise.

Overall, an excellent all-round real-world sporty choice.

This proved it's worth on my Skoda vRS when my wife had to do an emergency brake & swerve in the wet at 50mph to avoid someone pulling out in front. No loss of control and my wife now won't hear of anything else on the car! According to the tyre fitter this is the Hampshire Police tyre of choice on their fleet of Skoda's (traffic & local cars).

Ran these to replace the PS2s on Civic 2.2EX when purchased, was getting between 14 and 20k miles out of them but mainly motorway cruising. Satisfied but as a premium tyre they should do a good job

Driving on mostly motorways for 14,000 average miles
Replaced with PS3s to match the existing ones after changing the car. At first very pleased with the reduction in road noise and handling both in wet and dry conditions.
I drive mostly motorway journeys both here and on the continent easily with a view to my fuel consumption.
As the tyres have worn, the road noise has increased, but the grip seems to have stayed.
I've now done 14k with these tyres and the fronts need changing again, the rears don't seem to have worn very much at all.
I won't be replacing with PS3s but looking for something that wears better.

Given 74% (breakdown) while driving a Jaguar XF (225-45-18-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 35,000 spirited miles
Good performance in dry and wet. BUT VERY LOUD. Changed from OEM pirellis and the Tyre noise was so loud that I almost gave them back to the dealer. tyre wear is excellent. I have done 25000 miles and there is still tread on all 4 tyres. Side walls are tough- have hit the curb a couple of times- no damage. The deal breaker is absolute lack of grip in snow. Was stuck 100 yards from home last year with the first snow. nothing more scary than a heavy rear wheel drive car doing a pirouette at a junction.
