Skoda (205/45 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 2 easy going miles
My Skoda Fabia 1.9tdi was bought second hand eight months ago and came with these tyres fitted to the front.
I thought they were ok. However, I recently noticed some cracks begining to appear in the sidewalls and decided to keep an eye on them. A short while after, while carrying out a front brake inspection, I was shocked to find a deep crack all the way around the inner sidewall of one of the tyres. The other tyre just had a small (3cm long) crack in the outer sidewall. Strangely, I am unable to find a date stamp on them, but from what I can see in the cars service history, I believe they were fitted in 2017. 4mm of tread remain so in theory there should have been plenty of life left in them. Although only one tyre was badly affected I felt I couldn't risk the other tyre failing, so have had both tyres replaced with a different make. Coincidently, the tyre fitter said he had exactly the same problem with these tyres on his own vehicle after just a year. The company refunded his money.

Given 43% while driving a Skoda Superb MK3 (2015 Present) (235/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
I bought my car with these tyres fitted. The first thing I noticed was juddering from the tyres at speeds between 70 and 80, really inconvenient for motorway journeys. Had the balance and tracking checked but no improvement, it seems that the tread design on these tyres contributes to the effect.
The next thing I noticed, when trying to turn from a junction, on an incline, in damp conditions, was that the performance in the wet is shockingly bad. Lots of spinning, a bit of squealing but precious little forward motion. This was confirmed when having to brake more heavily than usual on the approach to a roundabout in the rain. The tyres had virtually no grip, causing the car to slide even with ABS activating. It is possible to drive more cautiously in the wet, as I'm sure some readers will suggest, but there is always the risk of having to brake unexpectedly and I would not trust these tyres to keep me safe.
I will be replacing them with something more dependable just as soon as I can afford to.

Given 65% while driving a Honda CIVIC 1.6 VTEC (205/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Dry grip was acceptable and response was good as long as you have a bit higher tire press.... As for the wet, forget it. It has the worst wet grip and my wheels always tend to lock up when braking or I could feel the rear fishtailing at high speed. I actually got into an accident due to the extreme lack of wet grip. will not buy again just because of the wet grip.
