Volvo V70 2.5 T awd Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Radar Dimax R8 given 75% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 800 spirited miles
Got these after Michelin Primacy 225/45 17W. Radar is cheap, comfort and quiet. Havent drive much with these so dont know about how long these will last but so far just positive feelings. There was MUCH more tramling when driving Michelins. Sure, Michelins were worn tyres and Y speed but anyway: car was tramling quite baddly with Mich´s but no tramling at all with Radars.

I havent got any problems with grip in any conditions, not even in cold, rainy conditions. In wet road conditions i could keep same speed in hard turns than i drove those curves with Michelin.

Volvo aint a sport car so i dont drive it at the limit but the limit comes via car, not via tyres in this case.

I give "thumbs up" for Radar.

Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 average miles
Half worn down on a Volvo V70 and the wet grip is absolutely horrible. On fresh wet pavement, the AWD system has to kick in almost every time you accelerate quicker because they lose grip so quickly. Feels scary driving if there's water on the road, even though there's a lot of tread left and the pressures are all normal.

Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 easy going miles
I am an advanced Police driver in the UK, I put 4 of these on my AWD V70, I would class them as a dangerous tyre on a wet or damp road. Average on dry roads, fair bit of road noise. Definately would not recommend and would not buy again.
