while driving a
(195/55 R16) on
mostly country roads
These were hard to find when we got them, but they were specifically chosen as a std, all season tyre to replace the back breaking runflats on the mini. What a revelation, they totally changed the handling, comfort and stability of the car all for the better.
They've only experienced light snow but handled this fine, as with ice, mud, wet and dry. They made the car FUN and gave my wife total confidence whatever the conditions.
I tried three different all seasons on three different cars, these Toyo Celcius on the MINI, Pirelli Cinturato (self sealing) on an Altea XL and Goodyear Vector A/S gen 2 on a Toyota hybrid (that are approaching 30,000 in 4 months with 4mm left). All of them were chosen for the specific vehicle use and all have performed well, with the Goodyear seeing the widest range of road conditions and proving almost faultless. I would buy any of these again for the cars they are on as they suit the usage of the individual cars (MINI for a great driving tyre (TOYO), Altea for self seal against puncture (PIrelli) and the Hybrid that travels anywhere in any conditions (Goodyear).
I hope this helps someone.
