165/65 13 Tyre Review Highlights

Goodyear EfficientGrip rated 92% while driving a Fiat X1 9
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
Bought these tyres to replace budget brand fitted when I got the car. The old tyres were OK when newer but became lethal in wet conditions as they aged. Wear not an issue as I do very low annual mileage. Car is a classic for summer use only. The Goodyears have completely transformed the way the car feels. Handling and grip are worlds better and ride comfort much improved. A very good investment so far.

Dunlop SP StreetResponse rated 87% while driving a Ford KA 1.3
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
Tried many tyres on the KA, these replaced some budgets. The dry grip is as good as the budgets, the wet grip is out of this world! So much grip in the wet, good comfort. Very happy.

Radar RPX800 rated 84% while driving a Ford KA 1.3
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 spirited miles
An interesting tyre. Replaced a mix of Toyo 350 and Contis. More than enough dry grip, more comfortable than the Toyo and as quiet as the Conti. Seem to be wearing very well too.

Wet grip is variable. On normal wet roads they're good, and braking seems to be excellent (for a budget tyre) on any road, however they seem to suffer on the warm greasy roads we're getting in the UK at the moment due to a wet summer. I'm not sure if it's the tyres or the roads, but sometimes they'll randomly understeer.

For the price I'm pretty sure they're better than any other budget tyre and a lot of so called mid range tyres.

Nexen SB652 rated 79% while driving a Ford KA 1.3
Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 spirited miles
'Bit' of a car nut and have paced this tyre under allsorts of conditions. Finished off a front set in around 9,000 miles due to worn outer edges but I do work them hard alot of the time. Rears are blistering on the outer edges after 10,000 and tread is slightly worn.

In the wet the grip levels are modest but feedback and feel is really rather detailed and with no ABS on my car it makes it easy to judge and feel the start of an inside front locking up or the back squirming around. Oversteer is progressive and easy to feel and catch when it gets a bit lairy at speed e.g. 50/60 mph.

In the dry decent grip can be had even when pushing on. During 'highly spritied' driving down lanes etc they let go in a gentle slide when pushed though dont give as much detail as in the wet. Having done a track day with these they lasted 3 sessions at max attack with no sign of wear or noticeable handling change.

Overall a bloody good tyre for what it is too be honest. If your after a budget tyre and like your driving at all, i'd recommend this!

Kleber Viaxer rated 77% while driving a Ford KA 1.3
Driving on mostly country roads for 8000 easy going miles
bought for ?33 each
may fitters say its a buget brand but they wear and handle like a mid range
after 8-9 k miles they are less than half worn
owned by michelin but far better durability than kormoran and tigar

These are excellent dry grip tyres! Compared to other tyres on the market these hold the road well in wet and dry.
