Top Radar Dimax R8 plus Review

Given 81% while driving a Volvo S60 D5 R Design (235/40 R19) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Bought 4 of these for S60 D4 VOLVO.All in under £200 just over a year ago.
They replaced used set of PZEROs that were on there. And I tell you what, I cant spot the difference.....

Wet and dry handling is just as good. Never felt scared of as if they are going to give way or break away.
Wear also looks good for a 10,000m after a year.

Only one problem was the front nearside developed a puncture in the sidewall which was the only downside to these.

Brand snobbery has gone a long way.

Given 77% while driving a Audi A6 2.0 TDIe C6 model (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 37,000 average miles
OK guys I don't normally do reviews but maybe it will help someone. I got 4 of Dimax r8+ put on my car 27 months ago just before I went for a long trip from UK to Eastern Europe, 3 weeks = 3500 miles. On my return to the UK there was a storm in Germany rain was pouring and we didn't have any spare time to stop and wait otherwise we would have missed our ferry and even in the heavy rain at the motorway limit speeds these tyres performed extremely well. In the dry no issues at all. I covered 37000 miles in 27 months and fronts have just over 2 mm left (ready for new ones), rear ones got about 4.5mm left. The tyres noise is average not too noisy but not very quiet ether, when it comes to rate the noise it also depends what car in mine average noise is present at low speeds with the windows down, but for the tyres ratings I would say the noise is acceptable. I had softer tyres before slightly more expensive on a different car that performed really well and very quite but only lasted for about 20k. I do recommend these because they will not break the bank and they do good mileage.

Given 49% while driving a Infiniti Q50S Hybrid (245/40 R19) on mostly motorways for 12,500 average miles
Got these tires new when I bought my car. After barely 20,000km, there was absolutely no tread left on my rear tires (I've got the pictures to prove it). I use my car for commuting, mostly highway. This is absolutely the worst tire I've ever seen when it comes to wear, stay away from it !!

Given 97% while driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee (265/50 R20 W) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
These are great tyres. Can’t believe how little I paid for these compared to “premium” brands.
I genuinely can’t find fault with them.

Given 18% while driving a BMW 520d M Sport (275/35 R20 W) on mostly motorways for 600 average miles
Done 600 miles in these tyres so far and they scare the heck out of me. The car is now unpredictable and the handling is scary to say the least. would never under any circumstances buy these again even for half the price. Probably OK for Town driving up to about 40 MPH but above that and they seem in conflict to the car and its suspension settings (Main Dealer Serviced 3 year old BMW). The last time I had Tyres that handled this badly was with Cross Ply's back in the late 1970's. In terms of experience I have driven over a million miles in all sorts of vehicles in all weathers and conditions all over the world from old bangers to brand new Beemers and Mercs and these tyres are unlike anything I have ever experienced. I have no idea how long they will last but I hope they wear out quickly because at the moment I am considering writing them off and putting it down to experience and buying something safer albeit more expensive.
