Van Summer Premium Touring Tyres Tyre Review Highlights

Firestone Vanhawk 2 rated 73% while driving a Mercedes Benz Vito
Driving on mostly motorways for 6000 spirited miles
I fitted these to 2021 Merc Vito 116 SWB.
The stock tyres were Continental Vancontact 200, which were well worn by 50k kms.
My first thoughts of the Firestones was that I'd made an awful mistake by having these fitted.
I was almost going to turn around after a few 100km and see if they would replace them with something with better traction.
However as it turns out the break in period for these tyres is unusually long, I would say at least 1500km before I felt that these tyres gave sufficient grip to be safe.
Now after 10k kms I have either developed a tolerance for them but objectively they offer great grip for me in most conditions and even in heavy rain have delivered good handling characteristics.
If you require good grip and handling straight after fitment then these may not be for you but as a driver with many years of experience with many vehicles and tyres I can assure you that after a while these tyres will start to feel much better, maybe its a lot of mould release compound trapped in the rubber but I have never experienced such a long break-in period as with these tyres.

Apollo Altrust rated 69% while driving a Renault Master (2018)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 spirited miles
Grip is great when accelerating on dry or wet, even on wet uphill starts!
But it doesn't do so well when cornering, grip loss happens suddenly and with no warning, and slides are hard to recover from.
