I purchased these tyres last July and wrote a review in oct 14. I had only coveed 3000 miles at that stage but was very pleased with them nevertheless.

I have just this afternoon replaced the front pair after covering well over 18,000 spirited miled from a modified 220bhp high torque Audi TDi engined car.

Not once did they let me down and only gave me a slight shivver when I was driving in absolutely torrential rain last thursday for hour after hour. And then it was only a very short aquaplaining episode which came straight back under control as soon as I lifted off. And that was with tread in the 2.0mm region.

Since purchasing these tyres I have had nothing but praise for them. The grip is unbelievable in both dry and wet, even when worn close to the legal limit. The noise is slightly higher than others I have fitted in the past but the radio goes up a fraction and the issue disappears.

The price has fallen by 20% too so they are even greater value than they were a year ago.

I have marked these 100% in every catagory for a reason. Thats because in my hands, they have behaved 110% in every possible catagory. Shame they wont let me mark them as such.

I have bought these again and will yet again when these wear out.

Have ordered some for the MGF Lotus so will report on these when I have done a few miles on them.

Best tiers I've used so far. The very best for cornering.

Good allrounder with predictable characteristics and superb wet handling, but they are a bit weak on the sidewalls, much more than previous Uniroyal RainSport 2. On heavy car like mine, they tend to deform a bit too much, especially on the rear. The biggest problem is wear. One and half milimeter of thread gone after 4000 miles, that's a bit too much for my taste. The Rainsports 2 took three full seasons to get to the psychologically safe limit of 4 mm. With these I am looking for two seasons maximum.

Run flat tyres so not very comfortable. The Nokians are better than the latest tyres from Continental and Goodyear. I have driven many other tyres and usually dissatisfied so not sure why Nokians don't win more tests?

Have only done about 2500 miles so far no sign of wear, great grip wet and dry, will be buying again.

best tyres on BMW X5. I removed run flat tyres. Fuel Consumption average from 12,5 l/100km to 10 l/100km. Best for extryme driving.
