Good quiet tyre, which doesn't tramline or squiggle on uneven British country roads whose surfaces are getting worse every year.

Only concern is the speed of wear.

Driving on a combination of roads for 300 spirited miles
Only had these for a few hundred miles but I drive hard and these tyres respons well! I can't fault the grip (yet) and they are much quieter than the (very worn) P7000 tyres that were on the car when I purchased it.

Writing about the Barum Bravuris 3 given 77% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 average miles
Fitted a pair of these tyres at the front replacing Bravuris 2. Not felt any real differance to the car. Have used High Brand and Mid Brand and can find little real differance - except price. Can't comment on wear - only 1000 miles in but got 15000mile from B2, will be happy with that from these V70's are heavy on tyres. Will happily but again.
That said would not put them on my AWD R it runs Eagle F1 or Conti.

Driving on mostly motorways for 12000 average miles
Don't over inflate the sunew tyre and it won't crack, they are a summer tyres and have a very hard compound which is perfect for hot tarmac roads and that means very poor handling in the wet on cold tarmac NOT ROCKIT SCIENCE,have these on my CHIPPED T5 306BHP work fine for me ( ex police driver class 1 )remember made for a very hot climate "CHINA" so slow down on a wet road they dont work well in the cold but will out perform most other tyres on hot tarmac more expensive tyres tends to be duel compound a mixture of hard and soft rubber' nylon' neoprene'so they are all weather types in effect giving all round performance but don't last as long, i use these tyres because the volvo is very heavy and they last a lot longer being hard compound

Driving on mostly country roads for 9000 average miles
Initially these were very good: grip in the wet and dry was good. They are quiet.

However after just 9000 miles, the tread is down to 3mm, and on the wet autobahn in the slow lane (which in Germany collects lots of water), the grip was poor (wheel spin on accelerating getting onto the motorway at relatively low speeds) and risk of aquaplaning with not enough water dispersal when tread thickness is low. Dry grip when the tread is low is still very good, but some tendency also to get wheelspin on hard accelration which never happened when the tyres had more tread.

So initially very pleased, and now disppointed that they have worn out so quickly and will need replacement so soon.

Fitted 4 of these on my V70 T5 replacing the P6000s that came with it. Chose them due to the very high ratings and group test wins and I'd previously had some GSD3s on a 850, which were pretty good.

On the plus side, they're better than the P6000s (not difficult), dry grip is good, (warm) wet grip is good, ride is better than the P6000s, less tramlining, fairly quiet etc, better on-centre feel. BUT, the cold, wet grip is dreadful on the sort of greasy cold road that is typical of a winter morning - a few degrees above 0. The car just washes out with very poor grip recovery. Even the P6000s were better in this scene and my Pilot Exaltos on my other car are like poo to a blanket in these conditions. Really dented my confidence in the tyres, though as I say they are fine in warm conditions.

The 2nd problem is that they flat spot if the car is parked warm and left over a freezing cold night, so the first umpteen miles are spent shaking away until it gradually improves. Not what you'd expect these days. If you run winter tyres (which I will do next year), then the summer performance is undoubtedly good and you'll probably not experience the downsides. For an all round tyre, however, I wish I'd gone with my experience and got a set of Michelins.

On the car when I bought it - Astonishing - Turanza ER300 on the rear and Enduro on the front .- Had seen the budget tyre choice on buying the car but obviously fitted after the decision to sell . Absolutely horrific road noise - sluggish road / cornering response .

Have suffered for 700 miles and will be changing immediately .
