Volkswagen Golf V5 Tyre Review Highlights
Excellent Tyres. Much better than the Dunlop Sport SP01 that was on my golf before. Noise reduction excellent. Car feels more responsive. Great value for money. Would defo buy again!
Great tyres, cannot fault them really as they do everything very well. Wet and dry grip is excellent, they are quiet, comfortable and wear well. They are also very good value compared to other premium tyres. Highly recommended.

Driving on mostly country roads

USed Falkens on my cars for many years, FK452 is the best yet
Good price, excellent grip with progressive release when cornering hard
Can wear quite quickly when driven hard
Tried 451's on my daily drive (Omega) but didnt bother again as its a barge and the tyres didnt help performance any
Use these on my Golf V5 and my TVR in both cases they are excellent and I will be using them again

Very good !
Wet Grip and handling is twice better than my old Hankook tire.
Little bit "grinding" noise at very low speed but ok on highway speed
Also tried on snow and grip is very good if you have to use it in snow sometimes.
Comfortable, quiet tyre which grips well and isn't too expensive to buy. However the wear is terrible on my car, On my moderately driven Golf V5 the front tyres are nearly down to the wear indicators after only 9000 steadily driven miles.
Bit vague in the dry compared to my summer tyre but amazing grip in the wet. Only had light snow use so far but had no problems driving when all other cars seemed to be stuck. Good job Pirelli!
Wear out Before 30K After 20K wet handling bad but before that great.

Utterly appaling tyres. I've driven around on some rubbish in my twenty two years on the road but these ditchfinders take the crown as the worst.
People, be warned - THESE TYRES ARE LETHAL. THEY ARE AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN.
I bought a V5 Golf in really nice condition albeit with a galactic mileage on it (150k+) and a worn suspension. On the test drive I figured it wanted some shocks as on a damp roundabout about less than twenty mph, the tail was out. This is a front wheel drive car remember. I've learned to drive well within the limits of them but in the next week they're coming off despite having tons of tread on them. I'll ask that they're destroyed too as I don't beleive they should be fitted to cars and left for drivers of average ability to find their very low limits of grip by chance with their kids in the car.
