Brought car 4 months ago from networkQ tyres have lots of tread but ride is a tad firm but road feedback is ok but they are quite noisey on the motorway.Will look at tyre reviews site when I change tyres again.

Given 24% while driving a Citroën DS5 2.0 Hdi (225/50 R17 R) on mostly town for 6,000 average miles
Garbage! Don’t hold a seal, so have to pump tyres up constantly. Wear is shocking. New to used in less than 6 months, average mileage a week. Handling is poor, makes car feel like a boat. Never again!!

Had two of these tyres on the front, nearly binned it going round a roundabout at 15mph. Safe to say I'm buying new tyres ASAP. Do not buy.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!

Really good tyres from my experience, have had them for a year now and have done about 7000 miles on a mixture of roads, Still have plenty of tread left. Came from Goodyear tyres and struggled to notice the difference. Would definitely buy again and recommend.

Given 54% while driving a Mercedes Benz C220 CDI Blue Eff. auto (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 11,000 average miles
Tyres were fitted on rear of car when I bought it from a Mercedes dealership. Have driven 11,000 miles on them since February 2017 across all sorts of roads from single track country lanes to motorway. No noticeable problems in the dry and the tread on the tyres is still great. However, in the wet they give no confidence at all with the rear end sliding around when going around a roundabout in particular. Although there seems to be many miles left on them, they are being changed for Continentals tomorrow as I'd rather stay alive! Quote from a private tyre fitting firm I've dealt with for 15 years - 'I wouldn't fit them to a wheelbarrow'. And that was before I told him about the sliding!

Given 31% while driving a Volvo v70 D5 (225/50 R17) on mostly town for 800 easy going miles
Awful tyre. Grip was almost non existent. Rear end of family estate started sliding out on a slow large roundabout and I'm a cautious driver! Wife and family weren't impressed. I've never experienced a tyre this poor, they adversely affect your confidence driving. Had them removed for Sailun Attrezo's (impressive tyres). These are a false economy, steer well clear.
