Few day's ago mounted this tyre model and was already tested on wet road and i can tell it's very good and much better than previously C1S which was complete disaster.CF2 is for my opinion noiseless.

I have to say after having these tyres and running for 18k miles on them, my friend, a tyre specialist suggested I replace them with just over 2mm left on the front ones, the rear ones hardly looked used, having 5-6mm on them! Sounds like not a lot I changed them for Goodyear Eagles. Boy did I regret that, I should haave stayed with the ST2's. I have had close shaves in braaking on the ST2's and you know they are good when the ABS doesn't kick in and the tyres actually stop the car. This wasn't the case on the eagles with the same weather and road conditions.... Get these tyres, they are superb in the wet/dry and are budget price for a superb tyre. I have even had my auto (without traction control) pull in the snow with little hassle. From a company who make the space savers for 911 porsches, yes, you will trust them now.....

Definitly good tires, but I had Tyfoon succesor 2 before, and CSC3 are miles ahead on handling and road feedback.
My biggest concern is the wear, as these tires are expensive, but at this time I would have to say, I would definitly but these again.

Writing about the Maxxis MA Z1 Victra given 84% (205-40-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 300 spirited miles
I drive a 300bhp front wheel drive 850 T5 so a good set of tyres are really important to me, I like to drive fast and feel totally confident with the rubber I'm using. Having tried other tyres such as some Avon sports tyres and a few other decent tyres I was advised to try the Maxxis MA-z1's and I'm happy I did !!, the first roundabout I pushed them on left me with a huge smile they gripped like hell !!, they a reasonably comfortable and I haven't noticed any real roadnoise. The tread pattern looks awesome for those who like a good looking tyre. They actually put the power down better than my previous tyres did despite traction being broke in the dry in second but all in all they are handling s rather larey car very well. Recommended.

Bought these secondhand and fitted to wider than standard wheels.
They are great tyres, the best allround I have had fitted to this car. (Rainsport, P6000, SportContact, Falken) The grip wet and dry is more than enough to cope with the 280 odd bhp. They provide good feedback and comfort. Bit noisy on rough surfaces and concrete but otherwise very acceptable. The fronts wear quickly but this is more down to the car as the rears are barely touched after 8000+ miles.
Overall a very good tyre and thoroughly recommended.

Writing about the Hankook Winter i cept evo given 76% (205-55-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2500 spirited miles
Decided to buy winter tyres and very glad I did. They grip very well in the lower temperatures and are better than I hoped in the snow. Never a problem getting to my destination. I have just swapped back to summer tyres (mid april) as the Hankooks were getting very squirmy in the warmer weather.
Overall a good tyre and showed me that winter tyres are worthwhile.

Writing about the Uniroyal RainSport 2 given 74% (215-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 spirited miles
Overall a good tyre, nothing remarkable about it but gives confidence in the wet. Only driven for 2000 miles so far, small amount of understeer in the dry but track true in the wet. Dry performance is not their forte, slight vagueness on the limit and lack of feel. They seem to get worse as they get hotter. However I am really unable to fault them in the wet. I would not hesitate in buying them again. Having said that I would prefer Contisports if I had the extra money.

Do not understand all these negative comments.
Mine performed well on my Volvo 850 and lasted quite some time !
