I love these tires. Had them on my volvo s70 1999 this winter. They were perfect all around.

Writing about the Wanli S1063 given 34% (215-55-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 average miles
After buying a Volvo with these fitted to the back, I was apprehensive after reading reviews, and intended on changing them, but kept putting it off. Now I wouldn't even trust them to have enough grip to park the car on a hill in the rain...

Finally changed the rears to match the Kumhos I had on the front after leaving the road backwards on a wet, gradual bend. I was driving at a safe distance behind 2 similar sized cars at a steady 30-35 mph on a wet B road. £1000 worth of damage but luckily nobody hurt, and every other car seemed to get around that bend fine, even at much faster speeds.

The Wanlis still had 5mm tread all across their width, but the rear of the car broke away during gentle driving. For all those reviewers getting high and mighty about driving skills and attitudes, I am an advanced driver, have trained on skidpans and drive many miles in a 50 year old car so braking distances and cornering speeds are naturally kept in mind.

Ask yourself this, why are many taxi drivers in China not insured to drive when it rains?
