For a budget tyre, these are excellent value for money. Just about to change front tyres, which have done 26,000 miles. That is marginally better than I got from Michelin and Bridgestone, in the past. They may be a little noisy, but not irritating. The last week or so, I have noticed some wheel spin when accelerating away from stop, but they've done 26k, so probably fair enough. the back should be good for another 20k, but I have noticed some minor cracking in the tread grooves. I've been assured this is nothing to worry about, but I'll keep my eye on it. Overall, I would buy again, but I'm going to try the Dunlop SP BluResponse this time.
