225/70 17 Tyre Review Highlights

Ovation Ecovision VI 186HT rated 86% while driving a Toyota Landcruiser
Driving on a combination of roads for 54000 average miles
I had 4 tyres fitted new in Dec 2016 at 76k and now at 131k on my 2007 Toyota Landcruiser 3L d4d. I have been very impressed with them over the last few years. I have taken my twin axle caravan 10k miles round Europe in 2017 and the Ecovison H/T did a great job. On French/Spanish mountain tracks and riverbeds in the summer to -20c snow/ice in Poland they were great. I took them on a quarry 4x4 play area in the summer of 2017 and they performed great there too (nothing too crazy - they are not mud terrain tyres!). Good on motorway too. I didn't loose traction or get stuck anywhere (partly good tyres and partly great 4x4 car). I've had them back in Scotland for anther winter and they have been great here too in the snowy side roads. They look like an all-season to me as they have little slits in the tread like winter tyres to help them warm up. The Landcrusier is not a race car but I've only had them break away traction on roundabouts a couple on times in 54k miles when I'm really pushing it proper hard. I have to really slam the brakes on purpose on packed snow to get the LC to skid a little.
I'm actually trying to buy another set right now as after 55k miles the fronts are getting a bit low.

Durun A One rated 40% while driving a Ford Fairmont
Driving on mostly town for 3000 easy going miles
Tyres were ok in the dry but dangerous as soon as it rained. Understeer, oversteer and wheel spin in the wet. Tyres were on the vehicle when it was purchased we have since replaced them.
