Vauxhall Insignia CDTI SRI 160 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Michelin Primacy 3 given 100% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 10 easy going miles
I fitted these tyres to my wifes Vauxhall Insignia estate 2013 160 BHP. Her car had budget tyre on and when we got it I changed them immediately for a complete set of Michelin Primacy 3 tyres. These tyres transformed the handling of the car. We live in a remote rural area with country roads and the tyres perform extremely well in all conditions. They wear very well and I would strongly recommend these tyres to anyone considering them. The only downside is they are expensive but I feel that you get what you pay for when it comes to tyres.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 given 97% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 10 average miles
Been through many brands, lots of mid-range such as Kumho and Vredestein, - all very good but never seemed to get past 10k on the front. Fitted the Assymetric 2 to my Insignia VXLine in 19s, superb all round with 25k covered on the front. Now fitted the 3 and seems marginally better. Although looking at another £20 per wheel, they result to be a much more cost effective option with far better handling, noise and performance characteristics. Superb tyre

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 given 94% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2500 average miles
Having done a lot of research, I have found these tyres to be of exceptional high quality for road feedback, comfort in ride, handling in both dry and wet weather. As for wear I can see little sign of much wear to the tyres and as for prices, yes you may think they are a little high but shop around and find the best price you won't be disappointed. I got mine from Quicksave tyres in Blackpool. their prices are very good.

Writing about the Davanti DX640 given 94% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 average miles
I got these from my local garage and admittedly I'd never heard of them, but he had them on his own car and I've been going there for years so went with his recommendation. I must say I'm really impressed by them. I've had continentals on from when i bought the car new and I actually think there are better tyres. The weathers been really wet and I haven't had a slippy moment at all. I can't say I throw the car round, but I drive fairly aggressively and the tyres feel really good. I've called back into the garage and told him how good they are.... I got that "I told you so" look from him. A good bit cheaper than replacing them with the Continental's and as I said, I actually think these are better. They also don't seem to have worn at all, granted I've only had them on about 3000 miles, but so far so good. I've marked things down as a 9 as there's no doubt other drivers who'd give them more of a test, so I can't speak for how good they'd be with a maniac behind the wheel!

Writing about the Barum Bravuris 3HM given 91% (245-45-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 spirited miles
For the price can't be beat. Last longer than continental and 40-50 quid cheaper per tyre. Grip in both wet and dry is also not far off the contis. I like to test a tire in all conditions....can hardly budge them even on roundabouts in the wet ....only after 15,000 miles and down to 3.5 mil are they starting to move a little but still feel safer than cheap brand new budget tyres I tried before. Only issue is for some reason recently I'm finding them hard to source!

Writing about the Intertrac TC525 given 90% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 average miles
Intertrac TC525's fitted to the fronts.

For a real budget tyre they are excellent value. Got them through Black Circles as their budget choice and I must say they were right.
Excellent grip in the dry and wet, good feedback in cornering when near the limit, just a little understeer, road noise is not excessive.
Will definitely buy again.

Writing about the Avon ZV7 given 89% (215-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 24454 spirited miles
Not bad at all if u do say so myself Great dry grip in cornering and is strong in braking performance. Wet weather is a much the same and can really stick it in on the corners but sadly bought new tyres continental premium contact 5’s which were a big mistake

Writing about the Goodride SA37 given 87% (245-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 average miles
So far, so good, a little noisier than I'm used to but not too bad. Fuel economy seems ok even when towing a caravan. Good grip in wet and dry conditions.

Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 average miles
Fantastic tyres. Great grip wet and dry and transformed my car from hopeless in the snow to awesome. 15000 miles in and heaps of tread left. I am massively impressed - so much so I have just put a full set on my wife’s car.

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta PS71 given 83% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 500 spirited miles
same kumho problem... balancing & egg shape. 245/45/18 100Y XL
I've always used kumho because the price well reflects in proformance if only they didn't need constant rebalencing.
I've had 4 duff pairs, ku31 x 2 pair, ku 39 x 2 pair that had to come off in the end they were so bad.
No amount of balencing can sort an egg shape tyre.
These new ps71 are very soft, squishy, feel like running on 20psi with 30g wheel wobble even after twice rebalencing them & 1 of them is egg shape.
I am worn out with trying to get them right & think after years of kumho on various different cars I'm giving up on them.
Changing to Dunlop.
I always feel bad going back to the shop to moan they must think it's me lol but kumho have let themselves down & I will say so.
PS71 is more expensive, lower spec & lower quality, not for me, I like a tyre to be not thought about coz it's getting on with it's job instead of feeling there's a 60mph side wind blowing me around & the steering wheel hammering out of ny hands not to mention the amount spent on rebalencing & hanging around tyre shop waiting for my turn.
