Given 38% while driving a Toyota MK3 MR2 Roaster (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 600 spirited miles
Unstable at highway speed and especially during higher speed cornering. Never lost grip wet or dry, though it felt like the tire itself was made of gooey mush. It was as if some suspension part had come loose. It hadn't. Will never buy again. Swapped them out before 1000 miles. Fortunately was able to get credit toward new meat.

Given 73% while driving a Jaguar xf premium luxury (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
These tyre were fiited on the car when I bought it, so not my choice, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well the car handled and road noise was minimal.

Can't comment on wear as they came off after less than 3000 miles to be swapped for winter rubber, but they've been put in the loft and will definately be going back on next summer. Certainly there is no noticeable wear on them yet and they look like brand new tyres still.

Having looked up the price of them, I was expecting them to be truely arwful but was actually quite impressed.

Given 59% while driving a Peugeot 206 1.6 xt (195/55 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 333 easy going miles
I accidentaly run over a buss curb in 50km/h so my right front tyre blow its steel cords, so they are sticking out on that tyre 10mm by 20mm. Law says its illegal so I have to change that but there was no tyre in that size anymore, discontinued tyre. So I have to go and get two new ones.
8kg tyre rubber weight, 330aaa rubber for that size, ranges from 230-340aaa in the sizes

Given 37% while driving a Honda Fit (Jazz) (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 28,000 average miles
Fighting like hell to get 28,000 miles out of this tire on a Honda fit.
this tire is virtually a scam, at 20,000 I had a tire separate so bad it was unrunable.Had to buy another Formoza, Schawab only gave me 25%. Now at 28,000 I have steel cords showing on two more tires and the 3rd old tire has a band separating. (shakes at 60 mph) but still trying to get every short changed scammed dollar out of these tires.

Spend Your cash on a better tire...like Yokohama or something don't buy these.
