Volvo 2.0 T5 Saloon Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 given 100% (235-45-18-W)
Driving on for 100 spirited miles
Only had these tyres 2 hours when I realised I had made the best choice of tyres ever.
Comfort miles better than the Bridgestone and Dunlop tyres I had on the car before.
I have now had the tyres on the car for 2 weeks and can easily say that now it's a pleasure to cross a road hump without thinking the wheels are falling of the car or the suspension has seen their last days.
I can go into a curve in a roundabout with 50 miles per hour and feel absolutely safe while at the same time feeling how the tyres bite into the tarmac.
Wet drive is also noticeable better with much better breaking distance.
Just the best tyre ever!

Writing about the Avon WV7 given 90% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 5000 spirited miles
I was very surprised at how good these tyres were in the cold wet and snow (snow once for about 20 miles), especially considering that they're classed as mid priced.

I drove from Kent to Glasgow and back once per month throughout the winter and found these tyres to be confidence inspiring in all weathers. I took them off when the weather turned fine again, just to save them for further winters although, I found them to provide excellent feedback and grip in the spring/warmish months too.

I was also surprised at how little they had worn over 5000 miles. They will be good for at least two more winters, maybe more.

Writing about the Nokian Line SUV given 89% (215-65-18-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 40000 spirited miles
Volvo XC70 AWD better and quieter than Pirelli Scorpians they replaced. Car is heavy with high center of gravity but these tyres make high speed driving safe and the braking distance is improved noticeably. Liked them so much bought a set of Nokian Winter tyres. Hence summer tyres have lasted four seasons and still have a couple of thousand miles in them. Chech pressure regularly and rotate tyres front to back. These have proved quiet on good surfaces and returned great mpg and comfort. They are cheaper than many comparable makes. The winter tyres are fantastic too.

Writing about the BCT S800 given 84% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 average miles
Good looking tyres which perform well in all conditions.
Other than the noise I have no real negative comments at this time.

Writing about the Nokian Z G2 given 81% (205-50-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 spirited miles
I am very pleased with these tyres. Amazingly quiet which I really appreciate after my long suffering with some industrial plastic sh.t they called "tyres".
In my size (205/50/16) it has the profile of the V but it is a very small difference and its compound is a Z.
Dry grip is excellent, it doesn't make a noise even in very hard cornering.
Wet grip is much better than my previous tyres and I have a very safe feel on the straits, however it is quite good in long curves also.
My fuel consumption is also better now. Not that much but it is noticeable (let's say about 5-8%).

I have to say that Nokian really CAN make summer tyres. I would definitely buy them again.

Writing about the Firenza ST22 given 79% (245-35-19-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 average miles
Generally meant to be a performance tyre, has delivered good dry and wet grip thus far, wear rate is also rather good based on current 10000km usage. Good value for money tyres

Writing about the Michelin Primacy 3 given 76% (215-50-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 18000 average miles
Very good dry and wet grip. Replaced P7s on front, slightly less mpg. Wear not that good 18000 miles got to replace soon,I'm not a boy racer but give it the occasional squirt, the P7s are not that good in the wet the michelins are much better but the price you pay is faster wear. Not sure what to buy this time.

Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 spirited miles

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Directional 5 given 72% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 31000 average miles
I bought 4 of these tyres to replace my Bridgestone Potenza RE003 and I instantly felt my ride transformed to a more comfortable ride. It does so but soaking all the bumps. It performed very well in the dry and relatively well in the wet when new. The tread patterns looks aggressive and makes me admire the pattern every time I come out of my car. The best part about buying this tyre was the cost, it was the cheapest premium tyre I could find and lasted me nearly 50,000KM. I expected to get 40,000KM out of them but was impressed that I got more. Considering I drive a heavy car like Volvo, this is remarkable!

Now comes the downsides of this tyre. Firstly, this is a directional tyre and you could only rotate it front to back and vice versa. The tyres did not wear out evenly even after rotating and balancing every 10,000KM. Secondly, as the tyre wear, these tyres emit more noise than usual and more prone to slipping in the wet. Overall, I would recommend this tyre as a mid-range option but if you can afford higher end options, go for it. I opted not to buy again because I wanted to try something else and have moved on to Michelin Pilot Sport 4. Those tyres are entirely a different breed!
