Given 93% while driving a Opel insignia (215/50 R17 V) on mostly town for 15,000 spirited miles
I've used these tyres for 4 winters for 15000 Miles (25000 Km) in Turkey. The best thing about them is the confidence when you're climbing uphill in the snow. The worst thing was the road feedback and numbness on steering.
Tyres were very comfortable and durable against big pot holes.
Overall it was a very good tyre and I would buy them again. (I've sold the car but the tyres had at least 3500 miles left)

Given 87% while driving a SEAT 184hp TDI Leon (215/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Bought these part worn with 6mm tread left. They have been fantastic in the snow and ice in 2019. Good in the wet (better than my continental summer types) and mostly fine in the dry. I live in the peak district in Derbyshire, so there are many opportunities for going quickly on national speed limit roads. Both braking and turning have been excellent in the snow, to the point where i was able to get up hills other 4x4's and smaller vehicles could not.
The only negative i'd say, is that if you are driving with gusto, overcrest hills are a nightmare and the sidewalls fold in. That said, my summer tyres are much lower profile and handle perfectly, so the winter tyres didnt stand a chance. My driving style is 90% economy to work and back, 10% nutter on the country lanes at the weekend. I must say though, this is the only set of winter tyres i have had on the front.

Given 93% while driving a Honda Jazz (185/55 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 2,500 average miles
A real boost to bad weather driving. Wet grip is exceptional; emergency stopping from 60+mph is excellent; no fuss, no skidding, no drama. Really inspires confidence. On snow and ice grip and traction is noticeably enhanced; just remember to also keep revs low and (if necessary) gear selection high. Dry grip seems the same as my summer tyres; however road noise is a little greater and my MPG seems to have dropped by about 4mpg. Very happy to trade these small issues for the security of increased grip in adverse weather. Fitted these 2 months ago and the moulding pips on the tyres edges are still present on all tyres after 2500 miles, so confident that they will wear well (as all Michelins do).

Given 79% while driving a Mazda 6 (205/55 R16 V) on mostly country roads for 5,000 average miles
Given that the car is used for commutes, most of the time it's less than 5 degrees, and so these have been fitted from November to the start of May (Climate change, eh?)
Pulling out of junctions with front wheel drive is the biggest test of tyres, and these cling on just great, although I've detected a slight drop off from new. Maybe I'm being more cocky, though.
Day to day, they're surefooted and accurate, and the tread is holding up well after two winters. No detectable wear, which is what you'd hope for.
I think they've been a good purchase and although I've not had much chance to drive in the snow, light coverings and frosty roads are easily managed. I rate tyres as a major safety device and that's why I fit winter tyres to the family car.

Given 74% while driving a Audi A4 2.0 TDI 140 SLine (205/65 R15) on mostly country roads for 35,000 average miles
I found these tyres very helpful on hard packed ice during two extremely cold and extreme winters in Ireland just a couple of seasons ago. Was able to travel country roads, slowly, and with great care, that I could not travel with my other car using normal tyres. The only negative I found with these tyres was, that I attended a race meeting in Ireland, had to park on a solid grassy field, where the ground was relatively solid, but the grass was wet, and the car would not travel on that surface at all, or take off from stationery, using Alpine A4 tyres. Car type Audi A4.

Given 90% while driving a Renault Megane (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Excellent tyre for wet and snowy roads. Even on mountain hills in ski resorts, tyre proved its speciffications. Very reliable.
