Skoda (205/45 R16 W) on mostly country roads for 4 average miles
I've had Avons, Kumho's, Hankooks and now the Generals on my 1.2 Fabia htp. The Avons and Kumhos were very noisy ( the Avons sounded like a worn wheel bearing) and tram lined over any rough surface, the Hankooks were much better but still noisy and only lasted 15k miles on the front. My usual tyre dealer had started stocking Generals as Kumho were no longer the bargains they were and he highly recommended them. I can report they are excellent all round tyres for my Fabia and so quiet! They are not quite up to the Hankooks for road feedback but as good as the others in all other respects and much cheaper, and they are looking like being long lived. General have been owned by Continental for many years so I have confidence in them and will definitely buy them again

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
CitroŽn (225/55 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 7,000 average miles
I put these no my C5 to replace the Michelin Primacy HP which were OEM.
A revelation!
They are Quiet, Comfortable, Grippy, soooooo much better than the Michelins.
