Excellent grip of the tires. I expected more comfortable, and safe. I would recommend, quality tires

Given 71% while driving a SEAT Ibiza TSi (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 30,000 average miles
Good grip on dry and wet, but average grip on snow. Wears less than summer Bridgestone tyre. Excellent tyre for price.

Totally terrible tyre. Bought because of encouraging tyre tests results but regret it every single mile. Maybe in larger sizes they perform better, but at 195/55 its a tyre to avoid, especially on wet surfaces. At least wear is fantastic, but Id rather see those tires finally wear out 🙈

Trying to pick the very best all season tyre? Watch this!
Given 89% while driving a Mazda 2 SP (195/45 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 7,000 average miles
I bought 2 of these last winter because I got stuck in snow the year previous. As luck would have it, I didn't experience any snow last winter. There was a lot of rain instead at, or below, 7 C. At this temperature winter tyres are supposed to grip better. My experience at this temperature, in the wet, is that these tyres are superb. They just make you much more relaxed and confident in these conditions. The guy that fitted them for me said (several times) that he really liked the tread pattern. So my driving is Monday to Friday urban - motorway - urban. Weekends, it's A roads and urban. I've just bought another 2 for this winter (2019/20). In the dry, I honestly didn't notice any difference from the all weather tyres I've used in the past. But I don't have a fast car and I don't go to the limits either.

Given 76% while driving a BMW 120d M sport (205/55 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Very good winter tyre for combined conditions, with generally wet roads.

For the price, it won't disappoint. Unless you want a sporty edge, with progressive manners near the limit, in which case I suggest trying another brand. (Goodyear Gen1, for example.)
