Ford Focus MK1 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Uniroyal RainExpert given 99% (185-65-14-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 350 spirited miles
I was looking for tires that performe good in dry- and wet conditions, and I just found them. Enormous grip, way better then my last set of tires: continental eco contact
Even in wet conditions, no wheelspin and they give me a safe feeling.
They are even more quiet and more comfy.

Driving on a combination of roads for 7500 spirited miles
I like to go around corners fast push the car to its limits changed old cheap tyres that were fitted when I bought car. with the dunlop. they more quite on all surface hold to the road well. excellent braking in wet or dry. I have the confidence to go faster in turns then before. There only on the fronts will change back tyres with these once worn out.

Driving on mostly country roads for 30 average miles
Had these fitted today, at National Tyres, I had ordered the Westlake SP06 tyres but after fitting I noticed that it was these tyres fitted, anyway they seem to be really good, they are quiet, respond well to the road, all in all a great cheap tyre.

Writing about the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 given 96% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
The car's ride felt comfortable and the tires were very well connected to the road, grip levels high.
At 70 mph the planted feeling was going away but it did not feel unsafe.
and there is some tyre noise as you go towards the speed limit.
If you use the Motor-ways and duals a lot I think it is best to leave fitting till its 7c or below, town drivers will get longer use of this great tyre.

Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 spirited miles
Excellent grip and I gained 5mpg after switching summer tyres for these...
Noticeably more longitudinal grip than just lateral I had before... improved braking accelerating and cornering speeds

Writing about the Continental WinterContact TS 850 given 96% (195-60-15-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1100 spirited miles
I can only afford to run one set of tyres a year. So last year I fitted Winter Tyres and drove them all year round, (Kormoran SnowPro B2's to replace ContiSportContact2's) and they lasted 21,120 miles (+/- 1000 miles) in 12 months November 2011 to October 2012.

The main reason for investing in winter tyres was that I covered 13.9k motorway miles commuting to Derbyshire from Hampshire every weekend all year round and 7.2k miles on A & B roads commuting to work in Hampshire during the week. Majority of the time British weather is wet and cold and roads in general are slippery, seemed like a no brainer - there is significantly more road noise with winter tyres than summer tyres but the pay off is grip and confidence.

I decided to fit the TS 850 after reading all the positive reviews in auto express and various other sites. I've covered 1100 miles so far and I have noticed that there is significantly more grip than summer tyres (my set of snow pros were nearly bald and only 2 TS850's arrived at the start of november so I fit them to the front and the part worn contisport2s on the rear for 4 days); I found that the TS850 handled very well in the variance of wet and cold weather we have had so far. They offer a lot of grip and only noticed that my back end was slipping at higher speeds (only controlled by ESP) on wet or oil/slippery roundabouts and country roads as well as motorways.

I will update the review in January 2013 but all in all - I am happy with my investment so far as grip has been noticeble and that was my main reason in purchasing these tyres.

Driving on mostly country roads for 800 average miles
It's early to say something about wear and snow after 800km, but in all other conditions, this tyre is absolutely winner. Car grip on wet and dry is very good, comfort is perfect, and rolling resistance is amazing, which is better than my summer Kleber HP3. Don't think too much, just go for it.

By my standards these tyres have behaved without fault for over 20,500 miles. Both wet and dry performance has been worry free

Driving on a combination of roads for 1500 spirited miles
Cant complain about these 'budget' tyres, 30 quid a corner, work very well on a Focus estate diesel, both in the wet and dry! Would'nt put them on my Mitsubishi Evo like. Saying that Does a surprisingly excellent job. Depends what car you put them on I suppose!
