Given 59% while driving a Skoda Fabia 1.2 (165/70 R14 T) on mostly motorways for 12,000 average miles
The tyre is only suitable for desert areas. On wet it is not only bad, but dangerous.
I got a Skoda at work with these tyres on. They might be some 4 years old. The rubber went hard. Despite having still some 4-5mm, they are really dangerous on wet road. They dont brake at all.
Now I'm lucky that there is a winter season and I drive winter Nokians.

Simple and long lasting tires.
Bought a four of them second hand with less than a half of tread left and got some 10K miles out of them.
Good grip on dry and slightly worse on dry (losing some grip on hard starts and hard stops).

Pretty good in the wet and dry, but they do have a big problem during the hot summer days. The ABS just kicks in too soon, and your stoping ditance is much longer than ussual. I'm sure it's not the car's fault, as the Continental and Barum tyres I had after that didn't have this problem. The wear was good, they lasted for about 70.000 km, but I would never buy them again.

These were fitted to the rear of our Almeara when we bought it, they don’t have a hard life as rear tyres on this car, but have lasted vey well, no complaints so far.
