Volvo V40 T4 AUTO Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear UltraGrip Ice Plus given 90% (195-65-15-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 average miles
Have had them on my Volvo and can’t imagine another wild winter as we have in East Europe without them again. Never ever could take slippery roads, corners and bends so fast with any other non stud winter tire. For fist month or so when road still was dry tire was a bit noisy, but then on dry and cold performance was just unbeatable. With good reason it was announced as best non studded tire for Nordic winter. And if it is one of best for East Europe and Scandinavia where are sill real winters going on for 4 months in non stop with ice, snow, wet snow and ice underneath. Then for rest of sunny and warm winters as in West Europe it is more than best tire. Overall rating 9/10. 30/09/2011

Writing about the Pirelli P6000 given 66% (205-50-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 58000 average miles
I've driven 58,000 miles on Pirelli P6000s on my present car and before that about 40,000 on a Volvo V70 2.4 auto. Both cars came fitted with Pirellis when new and have always had the same fitted when new tyres were needed.

Pluses: they don't do anything very badly in my experience. They wear very well i.e. they last a long time. On my Volvo V40 (which has 200 bhp) the fronts do 20,000+ and the rears 35,000+. The dry grip is very good, and the tyres give a comfortable ride and handle well if not pushed to the limits.

Minuses: wet grip is worse than in the dry but in my experience still good - though I tend to drive a bit slower in the wet rather than trying to push on at "dry" pace! They are a bit noisy on anything other than smooth tarmac. They also perform less well in the last 2 mm before they reach the point for being replaced - they feel worn out before they reach the legal minimum of 1.6 mm.

Overall: satisfied with these tyres and would buy again but for the recent steep price increases. Relative to other premium brands they now look expensive so I will probably be driving on different rubber before clocking up a full 100,000 miles on Pirelli P6000s.
