Driving on mostly town for 500 spirited miles
Oh la vache. Amazing. On my 325 convertible bought one year ago, I replaced last owners' Nexen N6000 and it changed the car for half the price of Michelin or Bridgestone: 388 € (Belgium) for 225/45/17 and 245/40/17. They glued the car on dry. I pushed cornering on wet and hell, it works so progressively you want to try harder. I just have some tramlining sensation at hi speed (germany) on straight line, but this is due to the shitty alignement made by the moron BMW dealer who sold me the car. And yes, they made confortable enough my sport suspension to the taste of my wife. Thanks to all of you for your reviews and comments.

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Altezza RS200Z (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles

Honestly... i have had these on my toyota altezza RS200Z and they are absolutely fantastic! I drive hard on a daily basis, have driven to lemans and to east germany covering over 8000KM on one set and they are absolutely amazing.. I have only ever experienced slight understeer once whilst on positive road camber due to moderate braking. so fun to zoom about on and quiet when you drive about slowly too :) i love them! :D

Driving on a combination of roads for 3,700 average miles
Great tyres on dry and on wet or water in heavy rains. Very good on lower quality roads also. Very good and stabile in braking (tried normal, not limit braking, yet). A little bit more noisy (subjective hearing with open window in tunnel). Driven about 6000km yet so cannot say much about lasting.

Just replaced Khumo with Nokian and what a difference. Nokian feel more direct, grip better in the corners, very comfortable and quiet, don't track and in general handle better all round; I would say that these are the best I have tried to date.

Great tyres on my peugeot 407. Much better grip than my previous Pirelli P7.
If the mileage is good I will buy them again.

Driving on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
Superb Tyre! I've put them on the car to replace the Bridgestone RE050. What a difference. These tyres are perfect on the road, but also on the track.
Did 3 hrs trackday with the ZLine, and the wear was only 1 mm.
I've been using them for 22.000 km and the wear is now 3.5mm's.
In wet these tyres are the best i've ever had.
I will buy them again.

Driving on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Have put 2 nokian z lines on the front to replace conti sport 3's on my clk 320 cdi sport, only done a few hundred miles, so early days but very impressed to date, they really are as the other reviews on here say about them, quiet, ride well, very stable, a considerable improvement on the conti 3's, have tried pirelli and michelin in the past, these are better to date, if they see a sensible mileage too then highly recommended

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 159 (245-40-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
Tried these Nokian z Line after what others have said on here and a little online research of the company. They replaced Michelin PS3's so had something to live up to. And they did. Really impressed with them wet or dry.
The only detractions has been the roughly 1mm per 1000 miles wear. But the 159 is a heavy car and notorious for its appetite for front tyres so I've rotated them to the back now. And also the finish. One of the pair I have has a paper thin strip of rubber along the edge making it look unfinished. That should have been removed at the factory on final inspection to finish the tyre off.
Also would like to mention the brilliant idea of the wear indicator on these Nokians. This tyre has a series of numbers in the tread that as you drive wear away so you know exactly how much tread is left at a glance. Brilliant idea and should become mandatory.
So I will most definitely buy again as despite the cheaper than the big brands price, I personally don't feel the performance they offer is any lesser.
