I wouldn't recommend this tyre to anyone. It may be a low cost tyre but I believe there are better options at this price point and there are definitely better value for money propositions in the market. Dry grip may be ok, but the main dissapointment was it's wet surface perfomance. Unfortunately I had been involved in a mild accident wearing these tyres. It was during slight rain that the car skid for more than 15 feet (5 meters), with medium brake input, and I slammed the car in front of me. I had them for about 2 months at that point and I learned the hard way that these tyres were dangerous on wet surfaces, let alone any good. (after the incident i used to go to parking lots to see the braking threshold of the tyre before sliding. it was about 1/4 of brake work) In terms of comfort I guess they were ok. As for wear, they were really good and I could use them for a good 4+ years, although for obvious reasons I changed them a lot sooner for some dunlop bluresponse which were better in virtually every category except for wear maybe. In conclusion, if you live in really dry climates you may give them a shot. If you live in areas where it rains even somewhat rarely, stay away from them at all costs.
