CitroŽn berlingo Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Sunny Wintermax NW611 given 96% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 average miles
I bought these tyres for my Citroen Berlingo Multispace as I was about to tow the caravan for 8 weeks through England and Scotland - between November and December. Although I didn't realise it at the time they are rated XL, for Extra Load, ideal for the extra burden of the 'van. I bought them online and had them fitted at my local deal for £10 each, in total 4 tyres bought and fitted for just under £200.
The tread pattern looks rugged enough to deal with winter but it wasn't until they were fitted that I was able to appreciate how good they are. Living in North Wales there are enough hills, twisty roads and rain to test any tyre, and initial reaction was surprisingly good. They felt very competent on both dry and wet roads but wheel spin on hill starts was noticed with less than 100 miles of use, since scrubbing them in, this hasn't happened again. Towing the 'van was a revelation, the rear of the car seemed much firmer and overall feedback through the tyres was very positive, it was as if the rear suspension had been beefed up - I can only put this down to the XL rating and the stiffer tyre construction. The trip covered 2000 miles and the overall MPG for the towing and solo use of the car was 34mpg, slightly better than with previous tyres. Solo use since being back is just under 50mpg, which is about the same as usual.
In the wet, and there's been a lot of it at this end of 2015, is very encouraging. Driving through flooded roads and standing water has been uneventful, never any sign of aquaplaning. Grip has always been exceptionally good in wet and dry conditions so far but there was another area that really surprised me - these are budget price tyres that claim to be low on road noise - given the tread pattern and the cost - they REALLY are quiet, I've have never had such smooth, quiet and well behaved tyres as these. I was planning to keep these as winter only tyres and put summer tyres on later next year, but I may keep these on now and see how they cope as multi season ones. Tread wear so far is not evident.
I was hoping to comment on how good they are in the snow, but that is not happening in this abnormally warm December!!
Overall, if you're looking for a great all round winter tyre, give these a go.

Absolutely nothing wrong with these tyres. They're cheap, last a long time, and work perfectly well. People who give them a bad rating obviously can not drive very well.

Driving on mostly country roads for 2500 average miles
I bought four Quadraxer's a week before last Christmas,basically because they were the only winter tyres I could get hold of at the time.
The Michelin Primacy's fitted to my Berlingo XTR were absolute rubbish in the snow and ice that we were all suffering with at the time,in fact the Michelin's were downright dangerous,no grip,poor steering and poor braking.
The moment I drove away from the tyre dealer I noticed the diffrence,the car felt more sure footed and safer.
Throughout the following winter months they performed extremely well,and I had no problems at all,even in 8-10ins. of snow,they just gripped and bit in.

Although the Quadraxer's are an all season tyre,I put the Michelin's back on for the summer,as they had plenty of life in them,but the Michelin's are much more noisier than the Quadraxer's.
I would buy these tyres again and certainly reccomend the Quadraxer,I fitted all four,not just on the drive axle,which I think gives even better performance.

Cheap tyres but do the job here on the east coast of Scotland.Makes the hill up to my house easy rather than park a 1/4 mile away and walk up.Main roads a dawdle if ploughed and ok on hard packed stuff with a little care.First time on winter tyres and I wish I had done it years ago.Only had them a short while so no real idea of long term wear etc.

Writing about the Primewell PS850 given 86% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 easy going miles
When I purchased my car 18 months ago these were fitted and new. When I drive I don't try to brake any land speed records, they perform well for the average driver. Dry, wet and snow they perform as they should. My previous car with premium branded tyres in the snow could not get me up the to my house, my new car with these fitted has no problems handling the snow and ice on the hill that I live on. I have driven 15,000 miles and the fronts still have 5.5 - 6mm of tread left on them. I would think about using these tyres again.

Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
I drive in europe often, and wanted an all season tyre which had to comply with my list of specs. It had to have the mountain and snowflake symbol for winter, to fully comply with winter tyre laws in europe. Have good grip and road handling all year. Very pleased with tyre. worth every penny. I have slung the car around in the dry and in heavy rain to find its maximum traction. The price, ?5 more than a crappy budget tyre from your local supplier

Writing about the Firestone TZ300A given 81% (185-65-15-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 average miles
I replaced my Goodyear Excellence with these tyres following recommendation by my local garage. They suited the Berlingo Diesel very well, giving excellent feedback, improved straight line stability and reasonably quiet, even when compared against the Goodyears. Found them to be very progressive and easy to tell when the limit (which is low on a Berlingo!) was being reached. Wet grip not as good as the Goodyear Excellence, but much better cornering feel due to stiffer sidewalls. Good for safe towing. Wear rates seemed low; in fact when I sold the car, the tyres still had loads of tread left. I would buy again for sure.

My experience is that they are very good grip tyres but wear too quickly. They lats about 1/2 the life of other tested tyres in the same vehicle.
