    Dangerous! Impassable in my car when wet. When it's dry, the rear also goes away as soon as you want to accelerate through a tight bend. Unfortunately, the previous owner had brought it, apparently only for sale, since the tires still look like new. At first I thought it would be a shame to change it directly, but it has to go as soon as possible. It might be enough for a city polo, etc., but on the Honda S2000 it's just suicide if you want to drive it ambitiously. But that's what the car was built for and it's a shame to devalue the car so much in terms of performance.

    Given 50% while driving a Volkswagen (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    I bought 2 used VW Passats that both came with these tyres. A W8 followed by a 3.2 FSI. Both 4 wheel drive and the dry performance was acceptable but they were unpredictable in the wet. I enjoy karting and wet roundabouts at normal speeds produced 4 wheel slides reminiscent of my karting days. Crazy that the previous owner put these crap tyres on cars that were 275 and 250hp. I replaced them immediately with Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres. Never skimp on tyres, especially with performance cars.

    Amazing Dry Grip, exceptional wet grip, don't expect $200 performance out of a $50 tire, but pretty close for what it is. It really struggles in wear; I ate through 2 tires in about 14k miles, not the greatest.

    Great Value economy tire, sport appearance without the performance. Its just an average tire: not good, not terrible... you get what you pay for. Sidewalls are a weak point. Under-inflated driving will quickly damage this tire.

    Pretty decent and grippy when dry. Not too loud. Very unstable at highway speeds in wet conditions. I would only suggest for cheap dry track day tires.

    Given 83% while driving a Holden Ute SS (275/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    Bought these again for the ute which is cammed, otr, exhaust, higgins heads, 3.9 diff gears with 387rwkw with staggered Simmons.... Of course any V8 will light these bad boys up but i paid AUD$90 each and they are awesome in the dry. Any car putting out big power will drift easy in the wet. Nice and quiet and much better than the Federal 595's they replaced. Read comments that some people have bad handing in wet, maybe slow down. Also comments of poor wear and noise. Maybe its the tyre mob who fit them because mine are awesome. Happily buy again.

    Ultimate crap tyres, fitted on my 2004 Toyota Celica GT-S. I didn't buy them, so must've been a previous owner's work. It's impossibly cheap, they DON'T GRIP WELL IN WET OR DRY and are absolutely rubbish to drive with. They're noisy, and might result in brown pants if you're speeding with them. Absolutely do not buy.

    Given 46% while driving a Infiniti G35 Coupe (225/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    First 1000 miles are a death scare... Once they get broken in, they are alright. They have very hard sidewalls so the performance is pretty good, responsiveness is good. Balancing is a problem at high speeds, steering wheel shaking/feedback. I came off Brigestone tires which I was pleased with but were too expensive. Tried going cheaper, but got what I paid for with these tires. Probably won't purchase again. Overall, sweet looking tire, performance is OK, but don't trust them at high speeds. Good for a everyday driver if you aren't going to push them to the limit. If your looking for a cheap tire to drive moderately, they will work. Just don't expect them to be a high performance tire.

    Wet grip was very terrible. Driving during raining and/or wet surfaces are not recommended by using this tyre. Extremely dangerous and no confident in taking corners even with a speed of 50 km/hr. Side wall soft. Very regret puchasing this tyres. Will not buy again!

    Have been using these on my cars for years; not the best in terms of high performance but a bargain when looking for a performance tyre for your daily driver. Have run them on VZ Commodores with no problems, now on an modded and tuned Mazda6 MPS. Awesome off the line grip and corner capability. 10/10 would recommend.

    I have had these tyres for 15000km, 275 rear, 245 front, tyre wear is great. Traction in dry is good, but they are absolutely horrendous in the wet, so bad im replacing them as they are dangerous. Will never put these on a car again.

    Very good for a dry road no problem even 200+km/h, but really bad for the wet road. For my SLK 250, even a normal pushed on the gas pedal made the wheels spin and always slips on the water, the most dangerous tires I've ever tried on.
