    Given 69% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus (195/60 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 20,000 spirited miles
    Good in the winter but for me the compromise in the summer is too great.
    After 2 years of driving on these tyres, I can summarise my findings:
    Pros:
    - On cold to average temperature roads, excellent braking and cornering performance, progressive and predicable at the limits.
    - Cold and wet weather braking ability is huge, delivers some very stable and satisfying stopping power.
    - They seem to last just as long, if not longer, than my previous Hankook summer tyres. Which I was surprised by, since I thought they would wear in the hot weather.
    Cons:
    - Hissing noise on wet roads is very noticeable in the cabin.
    - On very hot roads (e.g. after a few days of 25 degrees C+) these tyres lose significant cornering performance. Braking is still strong, but cornering on hot roads quickly descends into squeals of understeer. I found this was much worse on my second summer of driving after the tyre was half worn out.

    Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Prius (195/55 R16 H) on mostly town for 24,000 easy going miles
    After only 24k in London worn down to the legal limit.

    Given 71% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Laguna 3 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 14,000 easy going miles
    I bought 4 Quatrac 3s for my Renault Laguna 3 to cope with the winters in the Pennines of N England - lots of long steep hills, sharp bends and narrow roads, and snow every winter. Performance was very good - grip quite satisfactory in wet and dry (though I'm a cautious driver), but excellent in snow even on steep hills - in fact I had to try very hard to make them slip even on snow. They've gone through two winters, and about 14,000 miles - and the front pair now need replacing. They wear quicker than summer tyres (which are totally hopeless round here in the winter), but then, that's the trade-off.

    Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus (195/60 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 6,000 spirited miles
    Found these to perform very well for the one snowy day we had in UK since fitting them last year. Very progressive on the snow. You still have to drive to the conditions but a 50% increase in grips helps.

    But for me, as a compromise tyre the compromise was too great. They are a little noisy in the dry, and on a damp road they get very noisy indeed - they hiss constantly. Under high cornering load they get noisy as well, and when doing a flying start in warm conditions the slightest skitter makes a burn-rubber smell, unlike my old summer tyres.

    Can't comment on the life but I usually get 15,000 miles out of my front tyres and they seem to be on track for something similar.

    But I found I missed my Hankook Ventus Prime summer tyre for my summer driving, with which I could also get around ok in the snow. I think the Quadrac 3's would be good if I had snowy hills to climb but I don't live in Scotland.
