Given 64% while driving a Daewoo Matiz (155/65 R13 T) on a combination of roads for 15,000 easy going miles
Very quiet tyre, much quieter than Avon ZT5 and quieter than Barum Brilliantis. You pay for that with very high wear though. Grip is better than Barum Brilliantis but not as good as Avon ZT5.

Not very impressive tyres no good on wet wis roads

Given 89% while driving a Suzuki CELERIO (175/70 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 7,000 average miles
Bought cheap second hand alu rims, that came with these nearly 10 year old worn down to 4 mm. Bought them after seeing the incredible difference the winter tyres made to the car compared to the stock eco summer tyres. I have to say I was very pleasently surprised. These felt the most staple yet at highway speeds, with great roadfeeling and some sportiness that reminded me of a set of Dunlop SP sport 01 that I once had on a Peugeot 206. Tradeoff being less comfort, (nearly harsh), and considerable roadnoise, but a very fun tyre to drive. Even at 4mm they felt safe in the rain, never aquaplaned nor had the ABS kick in. Only used them for 11000 km, as the valve on one of them started to leak. The rubber on it was ripped as a sign of to hard twisting. Decided to retire the set do to age. Didn't see any wear of note, during those 11000 k's. It's worth mentioning I had very similar gas milage compared to the never Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 the car came fitted with.
There are never options out there, but I would be tempted to go for these again if I find a good deal of a not to old set.

Do winter tyres really work on supercars? Watch this video to find out!
Hyundai (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 49,000 average miles
The tyres have been excellent on road stability. Going over hills with lots of cornering. In the dry they are great. Not so good on corners in the wet. Fairly hard on the road but not uncomfortable. Probably a bit noisy compared to some. I believe the mileage I have got from these tyres to be very good.

Given 60% while driving a Honda CRV (205/70 R15 T) on mostly motorways for 13,000 average miles
The tyres are quiet for the first few thousand km but after wearing down, the road noise becomes more noticeable. The grip for these are good but they significantly drop after around 20k km on them, I realise that without proper tyre rotation the handling is hampered. I was initially satisfied for the first 15k km on them but as they started to wear down the handling characteristic and acceleration deteriorated and I was forced to rotate them (FWD car). For the price I paid for them which is AUD580 (2 pairs), I expected them to last at least 50k km but unfortunately, I might have to replace them before that mark as the threads on the front tyres are 2-3mm shallower than the rear tyres. Overall,they are good tyres but I would not buy them again because of poor longevity and ageing characteristics.
