Brilliant. For the money they handle so well. Better than Rainsports for me!

Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 spirited miles
Its awesome good at winter.
It can grip well even on ice, or iced snow, or deep snow, do difference. best wintertyre ive ever owned.
Its a bit loud, but IMO its a common wintertyre "feature".

This is the best tyre you can get for real winter conditions for an affordable price.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 given 94% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 average miles
Good Year F1 Asymmetric 3, Changed all four tyres. My ST is standard with no modifications & it's transformed the cars handling & gives you much more confidence & feedback in the corners giving you a more relaxed driving experience. The grip feels excellent in the dry & to be honest the same confidence in wet conditions, Road noise is fine to hold a conversation at motorway speeds this depends on road surface. The wear looks fine at the moment after 2000 miles but I've not had them fitted that long. I used to have Continental Sport Contact 5 fitted which were good but all four tyres were worn out after just 8000 miles which I thought was pretty poor so I changed to the Good Year Tyres so far so good.

Writing about the Uniroyal Rainsport 3 given 93% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly town for 500 spirited miles
Simply put, they're the best tyres iv ever had, my car is running around 280hp and 350Ft of torque and i can now full throttle accelerate though 1st gear in the dry with very little wheelspin and 2nd gear in the rain with no spin at all, compared to my old tyres which would lose grip straight away in the same circumstances, goes round corners like you wouldn't believe now and very progressive when the do eventually lose grip. only had them about 500 miles so cant say anything about wear.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 given 92% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20 spirited miles
Although just fitted and only tested in rain these tyres have transformed the feel of my ST224, previously I had Pilot Sport4's all round but from around half worn they just didn't grip so well in wet. From the off the GY tyres bite into the wet tarmac and have given me more confidence in the cars handling, was well worth ditching the Michellins.

Driving on mostly town for 10000 spirited miles
Outstanding grip on wet, perfect on dry. Used on a Ford Focus ST225 for 3 years and already changed them and put again the same. I suggest them!

Driving on a combination of roads for 1500 spirited miles
Having put these on my Stage 3 Focus ST (320BHP) and they work very well. Dry grip is fantastic considering the amount of torque this car produces.
Wet grip is pretty good too, You do get some wheelspin but with the correct throttle you can pull off with minor spin.

Can't comment on wear and comfort seems like any normal performance tyre.

Writing about the Nexen N Fera SU4 given 89% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Usually i am a tyre snob but i heard a lot of good things about nexen and about how good value for money they are so i thought there worth a punt.
First off i bought the SU1's and fitted them to the front of my Focus ST which is running 350bhp and 400lbft. These tyres where good a good all rounder for the price but i wanted better traction in the dry so i decided to go for the the SU4's after reading some of the reviews.
The SU4's are fantastic for the price grip is up there with the big brands they are also very comfortable and relatively quiet with good road feedback, i can't really comment on wear as ive only had them a month but the soft compound big named sporty tyres are hardly hard wearing so if im getting 6-8 month of spirited driving out of these for the price its a no brainer.
Over all im over the moon with these they are well worth the price and i would recommend them to anyone.

Writing about the BCT S800 given 83% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 7000 spirited miles
I previously had a set of Potenza's on my st225, so when I came across these bct's for AU$60 each I honestly didn't expect much at all. Price of a set of 4 cost the same as 1 Bridgestone.
Honestly they were very impressive from the get go, My ST only works properly when it's driven like a track car. I didn't have any of the for aforementioned problems, no significant noise or lack of grip in dry or wet weather, I do regular track days in Melbourne and I've done the same lap time around Winton with these bct's, I've had them of for about 6 months now and they maybe dropped 10% of its tread. If you drive decently on these things they'll perform more than good enough.
