Top Rovelo RPX 998 Review

Given 87% while driving a BMW 330 Ci Sport (255/35 R18) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Bought full set for 220 pounds. Other priority makes are that much for one tyre. Had them on for only about 2K miles in various conditions in England and Wales so far - I am a very experienced and enthusiastic driver. MPG has improved from 29 to 34 average. Quieter and absorbing uneven/holed surfaces with greater comfort, but perhaps slightly less feedback. Grip is fine - I have no intention of attempting the lap record at the Nurburgring !

It was a risk - however I believe they are really good tyres for the money and I am very pleased with my decision. Definitely recommended.

Given 80% while driving a Skoda Octavia estate (205/55 R16) on mostly town for 40 easy going miles
Excellent value for money. By rotating the tyres they last 40 000 Miles on my car with wrong wheel allignment. I would buy IT again.

Given 49% while driving a Audi A5 2.0 TDi (2017) (255/35 R19 V) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
These tyres were fitted to an Audi A5 black edition coupe I bought. Although they are new. They are dreadful in the
wet. You cannot put any power on in a bend or you just slide. They also give wheel spin in wet conditions. I was a Police driver for 30yrs and would not recommend in the wet

Given 37% while driving a Mercedes Benz C200 Kompessor Coupe Auto (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
I've Got just over 5k miles on these tyres. Awful really as i'm a careful driver. They still have a few mm of grip but the car is sliding all over the place so i need to get them changed.

Given 84% while driving a BMW 525 TDS (245/40 R17) on mostly town for 14,000 spirited miles
£45 a corner

Excellent all rounder, handling is crisp and feedback is good. Nice progressive tyre with plenty of grip wet and dry.

Puts premium brands to shame.

Only replacing rear tyres due to budge cause by me hitting a kerb.

Have just ordered a new pair.
