Toyota Prius Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Dunlop SportMaxx RT given 100% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly town for 20000 easy going miles
great tyres in dry and wet being a taxi driver i have had virtually every brand on various taxis and this tyre so far is the best michelin primacy 3 comes close but would recommend the dunlop maxx rt. fitted these tyres oct 2013 and having travelled 20,000 miles i now need to replace the fronts and the backs are still ok. most of my driving is in the city and the wear has held up well to all the cornering but i must say i barely get above 45mph may be this is why i have got good mileage out of them.

Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 average miles
Very impressive tyre. I have never experienced a mid-range tyre this good. My previous car was a Vectra SRI with michelins on and it was lacking grip at the front. To give you an idea, at one particular corner in a chelmsford single carriageway (60mph speed limit), I could only take it at 30mph max in the Vectra with Michelins. However, with the Avons on a Toyota Prius, I could easily take the same corner at 40mph with no problem at all. Even the arrogant A6 behind me couldn't keep up with me around this corner despite tailgating me aggressively for the previous mile or so. They don't like losing to a Prius! I don't know if the Prius is a better car or not but I am very impressed by these Avons. They feel extremely comfortable so maybe they are very soft tyres. Hopefully they will last long. Only time will tell. Good job Avon!

Driving on mostly town for 40000 easy going miles
Just bought my third pair of Bridgestone ER300's!
They are not perfect, but do most things very well.
Before the most recent purchase (Dec 12)I scanned the tyre reviews on this site. Goodyear / Michelin / Dunlop... Some said good things, others said poor things. But Bridgestone tyres didn't seem to get any bad reviews. (But they didn't get any rave reviews either.) I'd guess I'd agree with the other reviewers - they are not fantastic tyres, but they do everything quite well.

Good mileage - 21000 miles had the front tyres down to 2.5mm. Previous Dunlops and Continentals were down to the same depth of tread on 10000 miles...

Got this tyre after a traumatic wet+cold braking experience with Bridgestone ER30. This is a safe and confortable (I guess the central rolling band on sizes >195 might help with that), economical tyre that won't let you down when you need it the most. Suitable for moderately cold climates where wear is actually very good so far, but don't take it for a highway trip when it's 30C outside or it'll age much quicker. Fuel economy is plain bad (I suspect inversely correlated, just like wear, to wet road handling, especially on inexpensive tyres). 2 years after this Bridgestone scare that prompted me to switch to Rainexpert, I had the same type of emergency braking, only much, much worse (faster ~25mph, on 3cm of fresh snow rather than cold rain, steep descent + corner, fully loaded car) and came safely to a stop after a bit of ABS intervention. They're not "good" on snow, just not plain dangerous, which can be nice as I'm not going to buy snow tyres for one day of snow per year, nor do I want to have an accident on that day every year! Can't comment on feedback or handling at the limit as these are mounted on a Prius.

Outer edges are now worn on front. Mainly careful economic style of driving. Had to change inner rear tyre due to wall damage when hitting a kerb turning left

Good looking tyre sadly that is the best comment I can give about the tyre. These were fitted to my Prius when I purchased it, they were in as new condition. After approximately 5000 steady miles the tyres have hardly any wear but have started to crack in the tread pattern on the outer edges of both front tyres. The full set were fitted in 2013 and have covered 9000 miles since fitting. Hardly a good track record considering they need changing so soon but not because of wear but because of poor quality.

Driving on mostly town for 7 easy going miles
Let's be crystal clear: This tyre is outright dangerous in the wet and when its cold. I know it's an OE tyre but never thought Bridgestone would put their brand on a product that dysfunctions completely when operating just past the limit of it's official rating (7C for summer tyre is it? Got the scare of my life at around 2 or 3C ... and 15mph!!! Almost felt like black ice!). This tyre is fit for only one purpose, to be used on taxis for max wear resistance, at city speeds and in warm climate. Anything else, drive at your own risk. First time of my life I've described a tyre as dangerous, and never imagined it'd be a Bridgestone ... on a Prius! Would advise anyone to steer clear from these things, while they can still steer!

Toyota supply these tyres on the prius as standard. The dealer suggested that I kept to this brand. But after only getting 16k out of them on 4 of them I have changed over to Goodyear Efficient grip ( cant advise yet as new) The Turranza are not a cheap tyre and very overrated. As for grip they wheel spin in the wet in a low powered prius when pulling away . Avoid !!

Sorry to say that they wear to quickly to be a sensible buy.
Used on a Toyota prius so not a heavy fast car and was shocked to only get 18k out if the front set.
you get twice the mileage out of Michelin so they should be half the price !
