Really bad tire I have ever seen. They come with car originally and I use them since 2012. No need to use that long. No wear or tear, so solid like stone. Yes they are stone. So much noise and road response. 67K km I used. No need that long. EE class tire need to be changed like 30K.

Drip is good in both dry & wet, noise is just getting louder over time, spirited driving style, worn ~51000KM. Not a comfort & quiet tire choice

I have these tyres on my car and they just need replacing now, having been on from when the car was brand new in 2006. Mileage done is a little under average, but very happy with the duration of the tyres. I'm looking to buy a new set of tyres, but looking for best value for money as they are roughly £70 a tyre. If I can't find suitable replacements, then I will buy the Bridgestone Potenza RE080 without a blink of an eye!

These tyres came originally with the car. It has just the perfect amount of grip you need on dry roads or in the wet. However they wore out pretty quickly( at about 25,000 kms). The tire roar sound also increased considerably as the tire grew old. Will be replacing them soon, I feel its worth considering cheaper alternatives such as the Westlake RP18 or RP26, they have pretty much the same characteristics and a breathtaking price ( nearly half the price of the Bridgestone).

Stock from new car.I use this tyre and it last 58,000km. But i always drive my car only around 110-120kmh max and rarely spirited drive

Drawback : quite noisy

Will buy it again in view of decent price and good experience with it

I clocked 48,700km with the RE080 on my ride and it was a good set of tyres if you are looking for comfort driving around the city.

The dry and wet grip were excellent and the response of the tyres at the steering wheel gave a high level of confidence to me when negotiating corners at even 90km/h. Humps and potholes were a breeze with these tyres at the correct air pressure.

The noise level was insignificant until around 30,000km of use, but even then it was tolerable. The tyres were also starting to squeak on smooth road surface (e.g. in multi-storey carparks).

However, being a Bridgestone, it is costly for a tyre in its class. I have taken off the 90% bare tyres that served me well and kept me and my passengers safe, but due to economics reason, I am going to have to look for a cheaper alternative.

Best tyres in terms of grip I have ever tried. Excellent in the wet or dry.
