Given 89% while driving a Volvo 2.0 T5 Saloon (215/65 R18 V) on mostly country roads for 40,000 spirited miles
Volvo XC70 AWD better and quieter than Pirelli Scorpians they replaced. Car is heavy with high center of gravity but these tyres make high speed driving safe and the braking distance is improved noticeably. Liked them so much bought a set of Nokian Winter tyres. Hence summer tyres have lasted four seasons and still have a couple of thousand miles in them. Chech pressure regularly and rotate tyres front to back. These have proved quiet on good surfaces and returned great mpg and comfort. They are cheaper than many comparable makes. The winter tyres are fantastic too.

Given 69% while driving a Mitsubishi shogun sport (265/70 R16) on mostly country roads for 7,000 spirited miles
As usual a very thight fit to get them on the rims, so be aware if your ride is bumpy, it might be that they do not sit correct on the rim. When properly done, they are accurate circular.
Grip is absolutely approved. On my Pajero Sport they perform beautiful in all conditions on tarmac.
Except from wear. Approx 5mm left after less than 10.000KM is not pleasing at all.
Still, I consider these next time. Never I had better all-purpose-tyres. At 100KM/h and full brake (newly serviced quality brake parts) the ABS hardly work at all, and the 2 ton car stops really fast, at dry lukewarm tarmac. In wet they slip a tiny bit, but better than several premium tyres. Turns, curves and hills are all done excactly as I want them to, no surprising understeer.

Given 54% while driving a Mitsubishi Outlander (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Very, very loud and they ride hard, really hard, even at 2.2 bar (the lower limit of the tyres). You literally feel every bump on the road. I bought them last year and drove them on a Mitsubishi Outlander XL. Had to replace 3 tie-rod ends on the front suspension (2 left, 1 right) in 4 months. Also, the brakes started rattling (the holes where the slide pins go widened and changed shape from circle to ellipse). On top of that, for such a hard tyre, it wears super fast.
This winter I got Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 and oh boy, the difference is night and day. They ride super quiet and very soft, a total pleasure... unlike the Nokians, which I plan to replace every minute now, because I can't stand how bad they ride.

Given 54% while driving a Subaru Forester (205/70 R15) on mostly motorways for 9,000 easy going miles
At first I was very pleased. The tires run silent with excellent grip.
I use the car to make longer trips in modest speed, Rarely over 100 km/h
After 1500 km three of the tires turned oval, they "separated".
Sent the tires to Nokian but they did not recognize my complaint. They could see that the tires was oval but they were not to blame!?
I've been driving my car the same way for 15 years, 200000 km. Not even ONE tyre has turned into an egg. With Nokian i got THREE.

Never Nokian again!

Given 73% while driving a Honda CR V III (235/65 R17 H) on mostly motorways for 15,500 average miles
Only positive words for grip and handling but very fast wear, after 25000 kilometers there is 1mm of tread left.

Given 74% while driving a Chevrolet Tahoe (265/70 R16 H) on mostly motorways for 15,000 average miles
Excellent tire for the first 20000km. Very comfortable ride, excellent handling in both dry and wet, low rolling resistance.

However things change in the negative direction after 20k, even though there is plenty of tread (6mm) left. Especially the emergency braking suffers dramatically and they get noisier. Now that two of them went out of round and can't be balanced successfully, I will have to get rid of them way earlier than expected.
