Given 89% while driving a Citron (195/70 R14) on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
I have driven this model on various tyres, some of them very expensive. I am utterly amazed by the Mohawks.
Compared to Michelin MXV they grip and steer just as well in the dry, are definitely quieter and less harsh on
bumps and provide quite remarkably tenacious grip on a wet road. They are stable and vibration free in high
speed cruising right up to the cars 120mph maximum. The CX carries 70% of its weight on the front wheels
so they tend to wear the front outer shoulder when driven hard. The Mohawks seem to resist this quite well so
I am expecting a life at least as long as the Michelins. If they were the same price I would still pick the Mohawks
based on performance. The fact that they are a budget tyre makes them incredible value for money. I would
buy them again in a heartbeat!

Given 86% while driving a Volkswagen (195/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 36,000 average miles
These were on the front when I bought my Golf TDI and I as I had not heard of them I didn't have high expectations. Now over 2 years and 36000 miles later they still have 4mm of tread and have performed really well in the dry, wet and snow. The rear Bridge stones are now in need of replacing and I am getting Mohawks to match the front. A match underrated tyre.

Given 66% while driving a Vauxhall cavalier td (195/60 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 50,000 spirited miles
For a budget tyre these are brilliant especially in the wet and cheap enough. Think my last pair cost £70 fitted. Don't last very well on the front of heavy cars. Mine did about 10k miles. Grip deteriorates as they wear obviously but the compound seems to harden as they age. Played hell with my ABS when worn down to 4mm. I wouldn't buy any other budget tyre other than these now though as I've grown to trust them.

Given 78% while driving a Fiat (175/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 250 spirited miles
Got an advisory warning at the M.O.T station 15 days ago so purchased 4 M716’s after reading all the bad reviews! They suited my budget and am glad I got them, these tyres should be praised for there dry and especially there wet handling abilities. I just replaced all 4 Michelin Energy Saver that came with the car but at £89 each just can’t afford them. I don’t value safety over money just need to keep my car on the road. These really should have a “very good in the wet” branded on the sidewall.

Given 80% while driving a Toyota Corolla (175/70 R14) on a combination of roads for 800 spirited miles
Got these for my corolla diesel as they were the only ones available prior to car test. Very impressive. No traction code on the wall but the compound is very soft. I dont care if they ware fast , I drive hard and these tyres are 70% as good as my proxies I use in my integra.
