Fiat Seicento 1.1 MPI FIRE (sporting) Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Falken Sincera SN832 Ecorun given 83% (155-70-13-T)
Driving on mostly country roads for 500 spirited miles
For small sizes (12"/13"/14"), only a few manufacturers develop good tyres with modern technologies. These are one of those, and it shows. Grip is really good on both dry and wet roads. While the sidewalls aren't as firm as i would have liked, the outer shoulder blocks in the tread are rigid enough to provide a good steering response and stable cornering. In the wet they are probably the best tyres for this size, also proved by the A class EU rating for wet braking. In my opinion comfort is just slighty above average. I won't judge wear or fuel consumption, as i haven't used them a lot.

In summary, while these can't be considered sporty/high performance tyres (155/70 r13 is not a sporty size), they are miles away from the eco/long life models available in this size, in terms of grip/handling/feedback. I highly recommended them.

I decided to try these tyres after a positice experience with a set of Falken summer tyres, the sincera sn832 ecorun.

I found these pretty good especially on dry and wet roads, they have good grip and the steering response is nearly as precise as the sn832.
Comfort and noise are more on the average side, but they seem to wear quite well at the moment. Snow performance is quite good but not fantastic.

In summary this tyre is quite dynamic and more dry/wet oriented. I would especially recommend them for milder climates where snow is rarer.

Good tyre for the price. At this size it was only this or the Pirelli P 700z. The Pirelli is a 1995 design so i chose the Nankang. Got theme after some 175/50/13 Yokohama A539. I believe the lack of grip in the wet is due to wear as i dont remember i had any wet grip problems when the tyres were new.
