Rover 214 Si Tyre Review Highlights
Writing about the Toyo Proxes 4
Driving on mostly country roads
for 8000 spirited
These were my first set of decent tyres and theres a notable difference in comparison to cheaper options. The one let down was the wet/damp grip. Although not bad, its not an awful lot better than normal tyres, at least not the same as the difference in dry grip.
Wear was very good, done 8k on them now and they've barely worn! Also very quiet and comfortable.
Also quite an attractive tread pattern which is a bonus.
Writing about the Firestone TZ300
Driving on mostly motorways
for 800 average
Installed a full set of 4 tyres the morning before a trip down to Newquay, Cornwall (250ish miles from Birmingham).
I'll be breif: Extremely quite. Extremely 'sticky' (good grip). After 800 miles (after getting home) they barely look used.
They do seem to help eat up the petrol though.
Would definately recommend.
ive had these on for over 2 years now and they have been amazing. traction in the deep snow and heavy ice is unbelievable.winter tyres are a must have for me now. they stay on the car all year round and even run fine in the summer however i find they wear more in the summer than i think a summer tyre would
Writing about the Autogrip F101
Driving on a combination of roads
for 5000 average
Tyres(actually "grip 100") fitted a year ago, and since then nothing untoward until a few weeks ago when the front drive wheels spun, starting off as the lead car from the lights in my town, on a wet surface. Have driven for 46yrs without an accident, and have never gone over the line at a junction, but I did the other day at the fairly busy T junction at the end of my road.
This time there were no vehicles waiting to turn right, so I braked the car gingerly on the wet road to make a stop before the white line......or so I thought. A few yards from the line, and making no excessive braking effort considering the conditions, the car's wheels locked up as if on ice, allowing the car to slide into the main road, with little sense of retardation. So much so that the whole car seemed to have entered the carriageway before it finally stopped just feet from a transit van waiting to turn right into the junction.
Luckily for me, there had been a gap in the traffic coming from my right, so I was able to swiftly reverse back over the stop line, without incident. My brakes checked out o.k., so I'm blaming the Autogrip tyres, more than I am blaming myself. To have slid so far forward has to be the tyres, and not any gross miscalculation on my part, at a juction I know so well.
I'll be changing all my tyres to a premium set; if I don't, likely next time, I won't be so lucky.
