  • Positive - Good grip in the wet and dry
  • Negative - Low level of comfort
  • Overall - Matador tyres success in its segment is easy to predict,the Slovak company Matador is 100 percent owned concern Continental. Previously, the Matador and produced by the joint venture Matador Omskshina in Omsk, but now the company will produce for the Continental part of Russian models at its plant in Kaluga, and part - supply of Slovakia. According to the brake test on wet roads, the Matador is in third place! And on the road handling can go fast. Slightly quick transition to slip, but the car remains under control. On dry pavement tyres Matador also work perfectly: good braking characteristics, the turns can go quickly and without fear of slides - the car continues to uniquely respond to the steering and traction. Noise and smoothness - average. Overall a very good combination of price and quality. Recommended.

Given 77% while driving a Opel Astra H GTC (205/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 0 spirited miles
Good tyre, made some research, this page convinced me to buy them, very good in dry, good in wet, not bad on wear, litle bit noisy. Excelent price, for 205/55 r16 some 45 euro/piece with install. Driving style not agressive, but sometimes on the open road and corners a bit speedier, allways confident with this tyre. Some 20000 km on them, still good.

MP 44 Elite 3 tires are great for a reasonable price! Drove 2000 km and I am very pleased with their behavior, both dry and wet. Good job Matador!

Given 91% while driving a Volvo S40 1.8SE (205/50 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 200 average miles
Excellent tyres. Fantastic wet and dry grip! Quiet as well with sufficient road feedback. They are excellent value for money and perform very well.

Highly recommended.

For the money these Matadors have proved to be an excellent buy. I was running on Kumho Solus KH17 and I found they wore out quickly and weren't great in the wet. I researched these at length and I'm well pleased with the end result.

Given 90% while driving a Rover rover 200 turbo coupe (195/55 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 4,000 average miles
on the back of an old rover 200 turbo coupe(nexens reviewed for the front)
good honest tyre and no complaints
on all but something special a fellow would not know the difference between these and much more fancy tyres
+ i would not say the turbo is slow either and older fashioned handling(hrumph)
