Top Apollo Aspire XP Review

Given 86% while driving a BMW 530D M sport (245/45 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 1,000 average miles
I bought these for my bmw 530d for the front.
i used to have Hankook ventus s12 evo2 and then goodyear f1 as 3 which lasted a good 43k miles and were very good tyres, low noise, comfortable so i was hesitant to try a make i have never heard of before.

These tyres feel fantastic. they are pretty much the same ratings as the goodyear, they handle very good, they are a soft tyre which suits my car but handles me throwing it around without any issue or squeal.

the tread is nice and deep which inspires confidence.

If you are not sure if you should try these tyres, i highly recommend them.

(all that being said, i do have a vibration on my car but it done it with previous tyres also even after a road force balance.)

Given 77% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 6,000 average miles
After 8000 kms the situation is as follows: Comparing to previous OEM tyre: Conti PremiumContact 2, H rating Pros: - more comfortable, softer sidewall - more economical - noise went missing in action Cons: - much more weaker sidewall although it's an XL, tyre therefore spirited cornering is an issue. For normal driving, commuting, on not so good and bad roads is perfect. In the matter of dry/wet grip there is no difference between the last tyre.

Given 85% while driving a Honda Civic Type R (235/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
After running the premium tyres for the last two years eagle f1s and Michelen ps4s I thought I'd try something a little more cost effective as doing 410 miles a week and 22 roundabouts a day its hard not to push on a little bit where you can. So far I've been impressed with these tyres so far wet and dry traction have been good no issues with braking or even when there has been alot of standing water in the road If they get decent milage by the end of the life of the tyre I go for another set. they was 30-35 a corner cheaper at the time ordered through black circles than the normal tyre I would choice ps4 I'm sure I've read they are a sub brand of verdastein which are a decent German brand if tyres. If I could be nit picking at a negative not that I've really found any the response of the tyre if your chucking it left to right is slightly slower than the Eagle f1 but that's only if your absolutely on it and the other seems to be availability seems to be a little sparse when I was tyre shopping. These are decent value for money

Given 64% while driving a Vauxhall insignia elite ecoflex 160 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
Running 245/45/18 at 40psi
I have tested these in the dry only,
They handle well in the dry did good in emergency stop on motorway.
Handled well on country roads hitting corners at 40mph no slip or sliding.
In my option these are good if you driving in the city good grip good mpg. But if your doing motorway miles a lot I would avoid they handle well up-to 74mph but soon as you go over 80mph you get a lot of feed back from the road including vibration and steering shaking and lot of noise .
