SEAT Leon Cupra Tdi Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 given 81% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 spirited miles
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.

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.
