SEAT Leon Cupra Tdi Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Uniroyal Rainsport 3 given 90% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 200 average miles
So far i have had these on for about 2 days all corners. They are fitted to a small car with over 200bhp. I havent took the car through its paces yet, as just letting the tyres bind in. I shall update this in the near future, but cornering has seriously improved and there are less wheel spins from 2nd gear, which i was previously getting with my previous tyres. I shall not mention their make and model, as they were used tyres that were on the car. What i did notice is the onboard computer showing more fuel consumption. Meaning the tyres before were showing 55mpg to 65+mpg. Currently they are showing 45-55+mpg. This maybe because there is more Rolling resistance compared to the previous tyres which had noticably less grip. And also the new tyres need to wear in.

Went through a few puddles.on the motorway, at speed and did not notice any aqauaplanning, so pretty safe in the wet and thats how they are meant to be. The steering wheel doesnt vibrate at all, which i was previously experiencing.

If i can i will add to this and inform if they have improved or if there was a regression in their performance.

Currently i am at a happy place with these tyres, and would fit them again and recommend them with full credibility, and they dont cost much at all.

Writing about the Toyo T1R given 86% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 average miles
I really rate these tyres and have had them on the same car for 5 years plus now (just replaced them again with T1R's) Due to winter tyres too I reckon the first set did 20k+ via rotation. The Leon came with Conti sport contact when when and were pretty much slaughtered after 15k (pre mapped). The T1R's lasted more than 20K on a mapped vehicle pushing out 200bhp as opposed to stock 150bhp. Torque is about 330lbs/ft. They are a good compromise between grip and wear. I would recommend the XL tyres too as these are stiffer walls. I couldn't comment on the std items as have always run on XL's

These tyres have lasted almost twice as long (20,000 miles)on the front two wheels as some other similar premium brand tyres and have much better wet weather grip.
They do give quite a firm ride which can mask the road feedback a little at times although they are quiet, but they are the tyre I've been most happy with so far.
They don't give fantastic forward grip in the snow but they are not a winter tyre.
I have also tried Goodyear F1 GSD3's and Vredestein Ultrac on the front of this car (Seat Leon TDi Cupra 150).

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric given 76% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 52 spirited miles
If money was no object i'd buy these time and time again, however getting 2500 miles from a set of 'road tyres' is not something I can afford when they're ?130 each.

It's not that they're no good or that the car doesn't handle well - it's just that you can see 4 streaks of soft rubber coating every roundabout you've just been round and when you're in Milton Keynes .... that's a lot of roundabouts.

In short if you are heavy footed, drive a car with a heavy front end and don't own shares in Goodyear - look elsewhere as these just don't last.

Driving on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
Prior to these I had always used Pirelli's and initially the difference was quite a shock, the ride was far better but grip much reduced, and the feedback through the steering was that of quidgyness and general imprecion. The pluses are good noise levels and slow wear, but if you enjoying outright grip then look elsewhere!

Writing about the Zeta Antarctica 5 given 73% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 5000 spirited miles
While this may be a combination of me being fussy and a characteristic of the softer compound, they feel a little bit spongy when going over speed blobs (the narrow blob-style speed humps) if you hit them off-centre, and pot holes on corners. Otherwise, they have exceeded my expectations of a cheap tyre. I had them on from around the start of December last year until about May/June this year when I got round to taking them off and the wear rate is much less than I expected, considering the condition of the roads I use.
