while driving a
Nissan almera gti
(195/50 R16 V) on
mostly country roads
Having used the Ultra Speed 1 version, I 've noticed a significant improvement in dry handling, whereas the wet grip is just a step below its predecessor. Regarding my car is a Nissan Almera-Pulsar N15 with SR20DE (143hp) front wheel drive - no ABS. Ultra Speed's 2 side walls are pretty hard, providing a nice feel during aggressive driving. Another improvement is dry braking (remember, no ABS) where wheel locking is reduced significantly, having in mind that I live in Greece, where asphalt quality lacks of grip.
Compared to Nokian Line, Ultra Speed 2 informs way before sliding, driving aggressively on b-roads.
Only "con" is the tread wears quite faster than Nokian Line, but the same as Ultra Speed 1.
Tyre pressures: F/R 35/32, car weight: 1140kg.
I would buy it again, cause its price beats tread wear.
