Given 80% while driving a Volkswagen TOUAREG V6 TDI (275/45 R19) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Just replaced a set of these with the same again. VW Touareg V6 and over 2 tonnes. What a great tyre for the money (£70 each including fitting) Ignore the stupid ill informed warnings. These tyres are excellent in all regards and for the price I haven't found anything to compare. They don't wear as well as some others in terms of longevity, but retain good handling and grip right down to the point when they need changing. I found them to be quiet and on a heavy 4x4 seem very well suited. If you drive so erratically as to loose control with these fitted, you must be a complete loon! Would recommend without hesitation.

Is everyone crazy ? For the money I refuse to believe that you can better these tires.
I have just fitted my third pair since owning the car ( 5 years next May ) and as I purchased the most recent items only 3 days ago for £ 120.00 for 2 including delivery I am still a huge fan. My RX400h performance in the dry cannot overawe this rubber and in the wet they are more than capable with no dramas. My tyre fitter has also pointed out to me that he is surprised that a budget tyre balances so well with little weights !
For those interested I replace the fronts every 8,000 and put the ones I,m replacing on the rears. Wear rate is excellent considering the weight of the car etc.

Well I've just purchased a full set for my Q5 and wow. I was apprehensive to start but now so glad i did. The road noise is quieter than the Michelin Latitude i took off. And hold the road just as good.For a budget tyre they are a bargain.Well recommended

Ignore the silly dangerous do not buy reviews. It's simple physics - these tyres are a harder compound so grip less well than a softer compound which is used by most premium brands. However you get better wear because of this and if they are on a big heavy car or 4x4, they are ideal as they have as much grip as you are ever going to need in wet and dry, even if you are driving like a loon. Soft compound tyres are actually too soft for big heavy cars because they wear out too fast and give far more grip than can ever be utilised (except maybe Tesla's or a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S on a track). I went out in the wet and took my Q7 for a real pounding (as I had read all the doom and gloom reviews and was slightly concerned) and they are faultless, no slide, no skid, no lights on the traction control. Trust me when I say "took the car for a pounding" as I track cars regularly. These tryes are ideal for the big heavy car. Just don't put them on a rear wheel drive M3 and expect them be like a Pirelli - they won't! They might however make drifting a little easier!

When I purchased my Q7 it had these tyres new on the Front and the recommended P-zeros on the back. The original plan was the let the accelera wear down and replace them with the P-zeros. As it turned out the "budget" tyre lasted as long as 2 sets of rear P-zeros and ultimately the car now has a full set of accelera's now. Especially as one p-zero costs as much as all 4 accelera. Performed better than expected, not as good as the Pirelli as of course, but never an issue, only mild losses of grip once on the front, in the wet when they were near replacing. The pirelli's are too soft for a car weighing nearly 3t, these are harder, deeper tread and better suited in my opinion.
Very good the for the money, especially with the size of 295,35,R21. Would defo recommend.

My wife needed 4 tyres for the RR. We ere thinking if selling it, so just wanted to put something cheap on it to get it sold. Naas tyre dealer suggested these Iota as a cheap but ok tyre for me. We discussed the pros and cons as I didn't want to loose the jeep in a hedge before the new car. To my surprise and after 6 months, these tyres are good. Not too noisy as the rubber is more road going than chunky 4x4. Co oared to the original tyres, these seem very food value and good quality. I would buy again.

Given 59% while driving a Mitsubishi Pajero 4x4 wagon (295/30 R22) on mostly town for 1,000 average miles
Purchased these for my Shogun as there is not really any other option for budget 22" tyres. So far had them since November 2015 and done about 1000 miles. The dry is very good, as good as on my other car (bridgestone) and wet grip is very good for the price. Never had any slip or issues with braking, always on point and stops as it should. The MAJOR issue is the road noise...i have never had a tyre make this much noise once you hit 50mph!! I have used some really budget tyres (three-a, kumho etc.) and never had noise come out of a tyre like this. It cannot be 74db as stated it is more like 78db it really is noisy i had one person ask me is that your engine i said no ever since i changed tyres the noise from these tyres is crazy!! I travel once a month on a motorway and even around north circular and it really is noisy, i cant wait for them to wear down and change them!

Given 79% while driving a Nissan Navara 3.0L V6 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
These tyres were on my V6 Navara Outlaw when I bought it, they were brand new. I was sceptical and thought I would have to change them. How wrong could I have been.
I've had Bridgestones and Pirellis on my previous Navara's with the mindset of being a rear wheel drive pick up to go for the big brands for the grip. These tyres outperform the previous tyres on the road I've paid considerably more for. Yes wet rear end grip could be better, but they are way ahead of the aforementioned.

Had them on as replacement for my Continental Run flats; a fraction of the price.That was one of main consideration for change, cost and harsh ride.
No regrets and best of all, my X6 is lees bumpier and ride comfort amazingly uncompromised.
And no electronic warnings.....
Just punctures.

Dry grip is ok, terrible in the wet, even warm and damp conditions resemble driving in frosty conditions such is the poor grip. Very noisy on the motorway too. I bought my used car with 4 of these newly put on it, I will change them shortly before winter weather sets in as I have very little confidence in them giving any sort of capability in snow or ice.
