Given 49% while driving a Ford Focus (215/45 R17) on mostly town for 30,000 spirited miles
Fitted a set of these tyres in a Ford Focus 2.0 N/A with not a lot power, but these tyres were terrible back in 2009. The standard goodyear eagle nct5 with 15" wheels had better grip better and more progressive than 17" wheels and 215/45 R17 Falken Ziex 912 tyres. The Falken 912 on the dry will understeer easily and not very progressively, very abrupt (almost terminal understeer into a wooden pole) and very slippery on the wet too. These Falkens 912 were dangerous, probably similar to cheap Chinese or Indonesian brands. At least, those Indonesian brands (Achilles or GT Radial) have great dry grip when new, but wouldn't last long with cracking, uneven wear, etc. Used the tyres for 30K before selling them with plenty of tread left. Got Kumho KU31 which was better everywhere and understeer progressively

Given 49% while driving a Mitsubishi Galant (195/60 R15 T) on mostly motorways for 2,000 average miles
In 2008 maybe 2009 I swap set of 4 tires brand new of this model (not sure but I remember the shape very good), dry grip is good and also in wet, pretty quiet and so comfort. But I got some major issue with this tires, after 2 years of use I start notice that the shoe rubber stat break apart, immediate I swap to other brand set. In shop thy was shock about that and don't know what really happen. Before that happen I did a balance for the steering. Looks like it was defective production or bad model.

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 59% while driving a Volvo C30 2.0L Petrol (215/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 20 spirited miles
Had no choice but to replace my front pair of Continental SportContact3 with this. Prior to that I also had a pair of Dunlop LM Sport 703 at the rear due to a really bad tire puncture beforehand. No choice for the tire since the tire size was rare for the market. Rotated them regularly and felt that overall, this was better than the Dunlop. You can bring it to the limit. had 3 puncture repairs and it was still performing OK. Quick accelerations caused it to slip but it maintains the direction and does not affect the steering. It delivered way better performance than my Dunlop but my only gripe was the wear. Noticed that it was dangerously worn and was showing the inside already but the tire held up well. Sidewall is indeed strong. Run it with an almost flat for 5miles and it still was OK. The rubber compound though was soft which contributed to its performance and had bad wear characteristics.

Given 59% while driving a (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 12,427 average miles
Tyre was fitted 20k km before around early this year and now it has come its end. In terms of comfort and grip, it has served me well even though this is a more regular car bias than an SUV. I was referred to this tire from the Chinese GT Radial which comes stock with my Chinese and it is horrible and noisy. This tyre however, is able to take the whole weight of the car without a problem. I have even squeeze 8 passengers in this 5 seaters and nothing happened. Grips are great as well on both wet and dry conditions.
Wear wise, it is very quick, considering I fitted this on my FWD SUV. Right now, after 20k km, the front tires are left with less than a cm depth while the rear had barely wear.
