Ford Cmax Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear UltraGrip Performance Gen 1 given 100% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 average miles
Superb tyres, one of the best you could ever fit to your motor, nothing I've tried before comes near to these for grip and quality and believe me I've tried several makes over my years of driving. Fit these with confidence and make sure you never become stuck in the winter months :)

Writing about the Michelin CrossClimate Plus given 98% (225-55-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 45000 spirited miles
ONE LINE = BUY THESE. They are fantastic for all round weather - from the dry roads, muddy fields - also ice & snow! Fitted at 71k miles (excactly on the ODO) and currently at 116k (45,000 miles approx so far) and the rear still has 3.5mm tread and the fronts are 2mm which are being replaced next week. You want to go shopping with thick snow on the ground but dont have a 4x4? = No problem. These will do the job on your front wheel drive ford cmax (guaranteed by me as proof!) Watching faces of those while your passing them as they are struggling up hills in their posh "4x4" cars while your driving past, 100% grip and not even a slip. Perfection.

Driving on a combination of roads for 40000 average miles
I was very happy with the low wear with 45.000 km on a 7 seat car.
Not keeping them as they are the most expensive tires I found locally in my research.

Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 average miles
I've owned Michelin Primacy 3 before the Falken and , apart for the wear , the Falken were very good for the wet and dry grip. never had any issue and I was impressed by their performance. As the second set of tyres the falken were expected to last less but I was expecting to make at least 40K Km with them... but it was not the case as I have now them with 35K km and they are exausted...I'd probably need to change at 30K.

Apart for the Wear tyres are really good, I'm going to buy them again because I prefer to spend less and change the tyres after maximum 2 years.

Grip on slushy ice was not as good as grip on fresh snow.

Writing about the Pirelli CINTURATO P7 given 57% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 average miles
Have normally had the P7 tyre on my Ford C-Max, it came with them and so have always opted for the same, swapping the front to rear and putting new ones on the front. Only this time the road noise is just awful! I have a diesel so not the quietest car but these tyres literally drown out the noise of the engine, the radio and the kids (perhaps not a bad thing!). I can feel the vibration through the pedals and steering wheel. We've had the alignment/tracking looked at, etc. but they are just not improving. I can't understand it as all the previous Pirelli P7s have been fine. Dud batch maybe? In any case I'll be moving away from them next tyre change (if I can bear it for that long) as they are obviously not consistent in their manufacturing of these tyres.

Driving on mostly town for 6000 average miles
Had these tyres twice. I bought a full set, I still have the two rear ones, they are wearing well. The front ones only lasted me 7 months. I put it down to my driving and gave them a 2nd chance. The new ones are 6 months in and I'll be lucky to get another 2 months. I also found them quite noisy and slippy. The grip isn't great. In short, they are fine for the back but definetly not the front.

Writing about the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 given 0% (215-50-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 13000 average miles
About 75% of my driving is on rural roads and the rest on dual carriageways/motorways. I occasionally like to push the car to put a bit more fun back into driving but am mostly sensible with little rapid acceleration/harsh braking, so I'd expect my front tyres to last in excess of 25k miles.

I have these tyres on the front of my C-max. The original Goodyear EfficientGrips I had on the back had lasted very well (>40k), so I stuck with Goodyears when those needed replacing.

These Hankooks started off well with low road noise and good grip in dry and wet conditions. However, the grip, particularly in the wet, has been deteriorating for the past several hundred miles. On top of that, the wear rate is awful compared to the tyres these replaced (Kumho Ecsta Le Sport KU39 - which lasted about 22k) - I think I'll be lucky to see 16k on these before they reach the legal limit. Won't be buying again - I'm trying to find something that will last me a little longer than the Kumhos - 25k would be good. If I can't find anything suitable within my budget (up to about £110 each), it'll be back to the Kumhos as they are far better value for money (these Hankooks look to be costing me around 70% more per mile!).
