while driving a
(205/55 R16 V) on
i was surprised by some negative reviews i read about these.
i bought them in december 2011, and they lasted until october 2013. i almost got to 30000 miles on them. not far off. after an initial bedding in period of around 500 miles the car drove well. whilst they were noisey the car drove well. it was comfortable, didnt have to jam on breaks. it handled very well in the dry, rain and snow.
there was a tiny bit of vibration towards the end of the cycle but i felt i got what i paid for given i drive a lot of miles.
i deducted marks above for occasional vibration and the noise, but other than that it was a brilliant set of tyres.
