Do not like them at all. Put a set of these on my TT in a moment of skintness and it was a huge mistake. The car now has no lateral grip in the dry and the tyre walls are so soft that it wobbles and leans around corners and exhibits massive understeer.

The ride is extremely floaty, vague and imprecise, yet every single bump seems to be transmitted into the cabin. Car doesn't feel like it's travelling in a straight line and doesn't ride smoothly.

The only saving grace is they're very good at dealing with wet roads.

Will be replacing the front tyres with something decent as soon as I can put the funds together.

Driving on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
I've used this set of tyres for a month or so.

The dry grip is there but it's just not enough for me. The tyre really shines in wet condition. I can drive up to 160-170KM/H during heavy pour. Thanks to its large grooves.

The downside of this tyre is the sidewall is way too soft.They should categorized this tyre under comfort not UHP.

Driving on a combination of roads for 11,000 average miles
The tyres were bought to replace Nexen7000 which gripped well wet or dry but wore to the point of needing replacement after just 8000 miles, being driven by my wife and myself at a steady pace. The other problem was cracking around the shoulders and tread. Unfortunately the nexen 8000 is cracking just the same. At least were getting to 11000 miles now the tyres need replacing again. Looking for an alternative now.

Driving on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
These are great tyres, better in most respects over the Dunlop SP01's they replaced. Only Mpg suffers in comparison. Otherwise, handling, feedback, comfort and noise are all better. Incredible as they were less than half the price. The wear seems good, with no change to tread and resisting picking up nails/metal shards in the 8 weeks I've had them (the Dunlops were magnets, maybe I was unlucky with them!)

Absolutely love them. I bought them for the back on my e46 M3, pushing 362 bhp, my car has never gripped so well, we or dry. I had michiline ps2 but they didn't last much.. Couldn't be happier with these

These tyres are amazing, really, I had michiline ps2 on the rear and had worn all too quickly, this tyre was a great surprize. I had read the reviews and decided to give them a go. Once the initial break in period had passed, these tyres gripped like a mofo on wet and dry, I really recommend them

Given 19% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda RX8 (225-45-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Fitted to the rear of a Mazda RX8 the stability on these tyres is appalling. They 'tramline' so badly the car can travel 30cm (that's a foot in caveman measurements) sideways uncommanded even in dry conditions. It feels as though they are flat.

Also the grip is so bad they cause the DSC (dynamic stability control) to activate repeatedly. I suspect the reason for both of these shortcomings is that they have enormous gaps between lines of tread which means the tread is able to flex laterally.

I am taking mine back to the tyre shop tomorrow!

Given 23% (breakdown) while driving a Honda Civic Type R (205-45-17-W)
Driving on mostly town for 100 spirited miles
Had these fitted as part of the deal having bought a car that needed new tyres. Test drove the car on bald under inflated bridgestones yet once I changed to the nexen I think I would have rather took my chances! Simply the side walls are too soft. The construction is cheap and the roll in the tyre is so noticeable you think your on flats and that's just normal driving. Don't dare push them! Maybe ok on the family car but a firm setup car shows this up immediately. They will be on eBay next week! No confidence in them at all. Don't buy cheap I usually don't!
