Given 39% while driving a Renault Megane (205/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
fitted on the car on 4 corners when i bought it. they were a little less than half worn
i don't drive that fast (you can't anyway with this car) but i don't like to slow down for corners. i wen't to track once with them (nogaro, france)

compound is hard so they wear slowly but are noisy and crashy
dry grip is ok for a low power car but they are difficult to heat (don't buy them in a cold/rainy country)
wet grip is low and they let go without warning and take a long time to grip again which is frightening even a low speed. i never tried to reach the motorway speed limit (130KM/H) in standing water because of fear of aquaplaning

as they wore too slowly even after one trackday i ditched them before they reached the limit and replaced them by michelin ps3
and it is such an improvement
noise and comfort are noticably better with ps3
the car does not understear anymore on the dry and are very progressive on the wet
braking even in the wet is impressive
made 200 km of motorway at 135 km/h gps speed with governor under heavy rain with great confidence
i was surprised my fuel consumption even went down about 0.5 L from 10 to 9.5l/100km and wear is good so far (30-35000 km estimated)

sure michelin ps3 are around 2,5 more pricey but i value my life and peace of mind
you get what you pay for ...

Were on the back. Grip wet/dry fine but very noisy especially when worn.

Given 70% while driving a Subaru Impreza WRX STI (230/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
Wet grip more impress than dry grip, heavy tire noise after 50% wear. Overall good but not the best budget sport tyre.

Given 63% while driving a Honda Honda Civic Hatchback (215/40 R17) on mostly motorways for 0 spirited miles
Affordable tire, average on dry and don't expect great performance with low price tires. Noisy but still bearable.

Given 73% while driving a Honda Honda Civic JDM (FD2 Type R) (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
I've been using this Evol8 tyres into my Civic Type R (FD2) for street use. The grip is good during during dry condition and super good during wet condition (straight line). All i can say this tyres suits me for my light spirited drive and value for money as well. If you have budget issue for street use(perfomance tyres), would recommend you Evol8. Clocked about 10000KM and the grip still intact. Surrounding temperature, average 27 C.
