Volkswagen golf plus 1.9tdi se Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Continental AllSeasonContact given 93% (195-65-15-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 spirited miles
Sunday morning 07:00 in the rain (my favorite) the tyres preformed almost as good as winter tyres... a lot of grip even in beyond "the limit" situations, that's why I wanted to try them... In the dry they let go when pushed but still keep the car where you want to go. Also, silica tyre squeal is very high sound frequency, almost inaudible... this is normal and it allows you to focus on cornering... Tyre has somewhat stiff sidewall so it has less "float" feel than "comfort" competitors but without being too harsh. If you change and balance the tyres yourself an all season tyre simplifies your work even if they last a few thousand km less than dedicated summer tyres... 9/10 If they make it last longer than what the tests show it will be 10/10... We'll see.

Driving on mostly motorways for 1000 easy going miles
Got these tyres on special offer for winter driving & work a treat on the motorway and very resonsive. Around the awful city of Sheffield these tyres are a bit to keen and can feel the abs kicking as the tyres grip to the gravel on the road. Not a bad thing and proves how good at gripping they are. Tyres only 1,000 miles old and not driven hard so virtually no wear at all. Can't really comment on driving in dry conditions and will swap these back to non winter tyres when it warms up.

Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 average miles
I'm not a fan of budget tyres but these definitely buck the trend. I wouldn't rate them as budget now I've had them for 15,000 miles. On the front of a quite heavy car they still have 3.5mm left without sacrificing grip and feedback. They are going on the rear next make way for a new pair on the front. Brilliant value for money.
