Given 10% while driving a BMW 335d (235/35 R19) on mostly motorways for 200 easy going miles
Bought a set of wheels after I shattered one of mine, came with these lovely sporty looking ditchfinders on. Car spins in every gear...in the dry, drove it for the first time in the wet yesterday, and I've honestly never been so scared to tap the throttle, literally uncontrollable. Aqua planed on the smallest of puddles. These are not the "high performance" tyres they're advertised as, my car is running some decent power, so finding tyres that don't spin is hard...but I would NOT risk putting these on any car... The only thing these tyres are good for is doing donuts in a maccies car park. will be getting som rainsport 5s back on ASAP

These tyres are grim,do not buy them,it's like driving on ice in the wet, weird tyre pattern no use for confident driving,only had them few weeks and then i looked at reviews (silly me)tyres are getting changed to some Avon's instead.Honestly if you have these tyres and it's raining be careful.

Given 33% while driving a Volvo S60T5 260bhp (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 500 easy going miles
Horrendous tyres !!!! fitted a set of these to my Volvo S60 T5 and overnight wet weather driving became a white-knuckle ride from the moment you turned the key !! Terrible, I’m fact no ! They’re dangerous !!! Cornering was like a computer game and braking was a guessing game of ‘will it stop in time or will it not!’ Never ever again and I would tell anyone to dig a bit deeper into your pocket or make sure your life insurance is up to date !!

Worst tyre i have ever had on a car!! These were on my type r civic when i purchased it, i nearly took it back to the dealer because whilst driving it sounded like the bearings were about to explode, read a review and realised it was the tyres!! Dry grip was bearable but wouldn’t trust them at speed, wet grip was like driving on ice, in fact really dangerous, never would i have these tyres on sny car again!

Volkswagen (225/40 R18 R) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Very poor tyres, dry weather it would wheel spin for fun and screech a lot!
In the wet, two words 'DEATH TRAP' these tyres cannot get traction in the wet and it's like as if your driving on ice.
Shocking tyre, also makes too much noise when I go over 40mph, feels like my wheel bearings are about to explode.

Had no choice but to fit these on my car as I needed tyres for MOT, next time I will stay away from these tyres even if they were for free.

Given 29% while driving a Ford Focus ST 225 (2003 2007) (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 2,000 miles
Shocking. Cannot emphasise how bad these tires are. They were fitted when I bought the car and the road noise is the worst I've ever experienced. Changed the front ones after 1000 miles to a pair of proxes. Made an incredible difference, and I've just changed the rear ones and it feels like a new car. Sounded like a wheel bearing was about to explode.

Given 18% while driving a Saab Automobile 9 3 linear sport 1.9TID (150) (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Horrendous tyre. No grip in the wet. Have them on the back of my Saab 9-3 (already on when purchased). The road noise is terrible, as soon as you hit about 47 mph; then it's time to turn the radio up!! Just to cover the droning noise. Only good thing is they seem to wear slow. However they have had to go!!!

Given 31% while driving a Audi S3 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 1,000 easy going miles
The worst tyres I have ever had the misfortune of driving with. SHOCKING grip. No feedback. Bordering on dangerous in the wet. Sadly they came fitted on a car i had bought.
I have a lot of experience with Tyres working in the Tuning industry and have driven many cars running cut slicks and track day tyres. These can be noisy. They however create a mere whisper compared to these tyres. I might as well have had logs attached to each corner. The road noise is horrendous and sounds like you have wheel bearings about to fall apart. Avoid. Utter Utter Shite.

Given 21% while driving a Ford Mondeo TDCI (225/40 R20 W) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Bought a car that came with 4 of these tyres and oh my gosh they were just AWFUL.

EVERY SINGLE SIDEWALL HAD CRACKS which prompted me to replace them immediately. Dry grip was OK but wet grip was non existent with constant wheel spin under light acceleration.

Braking was a different story. It would cause the steering to snatch violently in the dry (I've had replacement discs, pads and calipers)

I've noticed that some others have mentioned that they thought their wheel bearings were failing - I had exactly the same issue and since replacing the tyres, this has completely gone away.

If you value your life or anyone else's in your car, avoid these tyres at all costs.

The only reason I have given these tyres a 1 for wear rating is due to the sidewalls. There was still around 5mm of tread left on each Tyre at replacement.

Given 19% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 7 TDI (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 easy going miles
we purchased the car from Car shop Swindon, who replaced the front tyres before we purchased.
I always fit premium tyres to my car over the years (only thing between you and the road) but recently the tyre hit the kerb and split the side wall.
on inspection we found like many others the cracking in the tyre surface.
the noise has been horrendous and ride very poor I would never buy again and indeed we are replacing the other tyre.

if you love your family and wish to keep them safe replace the tyres.

DO NOT buy those tyres under ANY circumstances
they're dangerous and should be banned all over Europe
