Latest Barum Bravuris Reviews

Given 57% while driving a BMW 530i e34 (235/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Maybe I'm just not used to marshmallow tyres anymore but these tyres were pretty damn vague and puddingy. Fitted to wheels from a car I bought and only used as I had a flat on my main set of wheels. On the motorway reasonable enough but a tyre is a tyre when going in a staright line. Feedback and handling were quite shocking considering Barum is not a small brand, car didn't turn in with confidence and the feedback was like a three year old on an etchasketch. Would I buy these tyres not a chance, there are better tyres that are CHEAPER out there.

These tyres lasted no length of time . Less than 20000 miles. 6 months. Paid a high price for them and I am disgusted. Never again

Put these on the rears as I needed something cheap to replace my T1R's so I got these both fitted, new for a silly price.

For good reason.

I am now unintentionally a pro drifter. I'm doing reverse entries and getting sideways around almost every corner because these tyres are utter petrified dog shite.

Going round roundabouts requires great care and attention as 1/10th of using the throttle will kick the back end out.

This one time in the dry I turned a corner and I was all jump drift like Daigo Saito on Ebisu circuit. I wasn't expecting the rear to slide but I figured I'd make the most of the situation and get mad dorito's on.

I've had them on for about 5k miles, and they haven't really worn down at all. I guess that's because they're made of forged plastic.

-4/10 they've still got over 6mm tread left and I've already bought new tyres.

Given 84% while driving a Honda Accord Euro (195/60 R15) on mostly country roads for 1,000 average miles
Very good tyre that grips well, espessialy on the dry. Extremely precise steering if inflated around 40psi. Cannot comment on wear because they were fitted on a second hand car I bought, but seems good. Not the quitest, but that may be because they are more than half used and poor asphalt.

Given 67% while driving a Mazda Xedos 9 (EU), alternative model names: Millenia S (205/65 R15 V) on mostly motorways for 30,000 average miles
I am writing this review from the country where those tyres are manufactured (Barum was based in the Czech Republic, EU :) This brand is economic one and many local drivers use it because of low price without any special requirements for performance. I used it on my 210 BHP Mazda. They were good in straight direction in dry conditions, very good in high speed over 200 km/hr. On the other hand, the car has low grip in turns (dry) and realy very bad grip in turns in wet conditions. Forget to use them on the snow. I tried it several times but was realy very slipy and no chance to take a turn safely. However, those tyres lasted aprox. 50 thousand kilometres on my car which is more than majority of competitors! Barum Bravuris were tested also by several magazines and professionals and ranked as good middle. Every test observed bad grip in wet conditions but overall good performance.

Dry grip is OK, but soft side walls means you need to be careful if you push them to the limit.
Wet grip is next to useless with standing starts being difficult enough, let alone going round corners.

Given 90% while driving a Audi A6 S line, LeMans 2.0 TDi 170 (255/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 17 average miles
medium to High performance car, capable of being driven hard into corners. very low profile tyres and this is the second time I have chosen Barum tyres for this car. They are a very capable tyre and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. This tyre is made by Continental and wears very well. The first set have done 17,000 miles so far on the front wheels and this is a front wheel drive car so will tend to wear more quickly than if fitted to the rear. That first set have just been swapped to the rear wheels and a new pair of Barum tyres fitted to the front. The tyre tread left after 17,000 miles was approx 4.5mm. Good in the dry and in the wet. I have no complaints, and will buy this tyre again without hesitation.
