Top Accelera Alpha Review

Given 80% while driving a Infiniti Q45 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 900 average miles
I just finished a 900 mile trip through the smokey mountians in the rain, I did not experience any drift, aqua planing or any loss of traction. Tires did fine in the dry as well. They are just as good a tire as the Bridgestone Potenzas they replaced.

Given 86% while driving a Volkswagen Polo 1.4 TDI (185/60 R15) on a combination of roads for 38 easy going miles
When I bought my VW Polo new four years ago it was fitted with Hankook tyres, I don't know the type.I was very pleased at the minimum rate of ware. This week I noticed many small cracks had appeared at each side of the tread above the tyre wall and on the entire circumference on both sides of the tyre. All the four tyres were the same. The depth of tread is 4.2mm which is very good for 38,000miles. Now the tyres are scrap due to that defect after only 2.8mm of tread wear. Due to it being MOT time and in case the police should stop me for some reason I have had to buy four new tyres. It means that Hankook are expensive tyres when they have to be replaced after only 2.8mm of tread wear. I showed the tyre fault to the VW dealer and they were not interested. N Mould

Given 39% while driving a Mazda MX5 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Bought a Mazda MX5 NB svt with these tyres on. Almost killed me twice.
Undertseers like crazy in the wet, literally have cars pilling up behind me in winter time when i'm turning.
I know the car is a little tail happy in the wet, especially since it has an LSD, but this is ridiculous.
However, more or less okay in the dry.
I would 100% not recommend these tyres to anyone unless you only take your car out on sunny days or you're a thrill seeker who loves to drift around the place.

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 36% while driving a MINI Cooper S Works (205/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Outright dangerous in the wet. Massive understeer on wet roundabouts, and have to be extremely careful.

Dry grip, wear and price are fine.

Comfort is awful and so is road noise.

Very excited to be replacing them, going for Michelin PS4 after this experience.

Given 36% while driving a Mazda 6 Sport 2.3L (225/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,000 easy going miles
Recently bought a Mazda 6 2.5 sport. the handling on the Mazda is supposed to be brilliant but have noticed the car has these Accelera tyres on it.
the car is terrible in the dry especially in the corners. Hit a little hole etc then the car is thrown towards the hedge even at low speed. In the wet it is like ice skating. These have to be budget tyres? Getting some P zero's put on soon. In my opinion. AVOID!

Given 27% while driving a MINI One D (205/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Had these on the rear of a mini when I bought it and vredstein sportrac 5 on fronts
At about 5mm they’ve totally given up in the wet
Makes for great oversteer but a bit on the dangerous side
Wouldn’t get these again
