Nokian zLine Reviews

Given 96% (breakdown) while driving a BMW X3 (235-55-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Best tiers I've used so far. The very best for cornering.

Driving on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
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?

Driving on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
Drove these tires (235/40 r18) last summer on my OZ Alleggerita. My car came with Michelin PS2, wich were great, but just too specific and would just be wunderfull under sporty conditions, but way too harsh on country roads. Good for the fun bad for the back :). The Nokians changed the whole car into a touring car. Under wet conditions these tires are ok but in the dry these tires just give the feeling of gliding on country roads because of the comfort. Had some really nice moments driving in the sunshine and just gliding along in the country. The are still somehow sporty but less precise than the PS2. However these tires just work really good in an narrow space of tirepressure (unless the Michelin, they always work). Overall i would buy them again, even if the comsumption is a bit high and the wear is noticable on the front tires. For me these tires are underestimated. Second pair of Nokians and always been happy.
