    Given 84% while driving a Skoda Suberb MkII (205/55 R16 H) on mostly town for 0 easy going miles
    I'm a taxi driver in Dublin, doing very high annual mileage. Already on my second set of Constancy tyres and I absolutely love them. They are cheap as chips, but they do perform as good as so called mid-range brands.

    Given 69% while driving a Lexus IS220D (205/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 12,000 average miles
    These came on my Lexus IS220d when bought used and i was sceptical as i don't buy tyres ever However they were brand new and i thought i'd see how i got on with them I have to say i have no real complaints, the dry grip, handling and wear are good. I have had traction control in the wet when you use heavy throttle even in a straight line but if you are smooth then no issue I use the car on the motorway and its rock steady with a little tyre noise, but i think this would be much worse if it wasnt a Lexus ie quiet Overall surprised, likely would but something better when they needed it but have to be considered on this performance

    Only driven on for 150 miles roughly. Had numerous issues spinning them up trying to moderately set off from junctions and understeer coming off roundabouts at 20mph. Shouldn't be sold whatsoever. It's not like I'm driving a bloody sportscar, it's a 95hp hatchback!

    Given 30% while driving a Ford Transit Courier (195/60 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
    Got to say these are the worst tyres I have ever had in 43 years of driving. They do have some comedy value though, they make me laugh as they massively understeer when there is the slightest hint of moisture on the road. They slide even on modest bends in the dry too. I'm not driving a powerful monster car either, just a small Courier van with 95 HP! They would be good for you if you have too many speeding points though, because you simply cannot drive too rapidly with these on, well not if you value your time on this Planet. Only plus point is their longevity, they just don't appear to be wearing down, amazing really when they spend so much time slipping over jagged tarmac. So the next time my Garage phone me and say "shall I just fit you some budgets on it" I shall tell him where to insert his tyres!

    Given 33% while driving a Toyota Yaris 1.5 ts (185/55 R15) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
    Hit a roundabout in the wet with them on the rear in my yaris t sport usually fine with any other tire .going round at about 40mph and the back end slid out. I shit myself to say the least these tires should not be legal. Have done multiple burnouts and they wont wear down so the wear is brilliant. Ps these tires had a shit load of tread they look brand new.

    Given 44% while driving a Honda CRV (225/65 R17 H) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    alright in town and on dry roads but try and pull away on wet tarmac and you will be left standing. I'm in two minds as to go and get these replaced when winter arrives as I have absolutely zero confidence in these tyres on wet roads. They are also incredibly noisy, at first I thought it was my roof bars / box but after removing them the noise has not gone away. The only upside I suppose is that i am desperately trying to wear them down to justify buying some new tyres but they are lasting ages!

    Given 20% while driving a Ford S Max (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
    Dangerous, I discarded my very worn rear tyres for a set of these that were brand new...Something was wrong so i thought maybe they didn't set the tyre pressures properly. They were slightly out so i adjusted and to my amazement it was still the same. I then done a little bit of research which i should of done before and saw the reviews. This company shouldn't make tyres!

    Given 36% while driving a Dacia Sandero 1.2 16v (185/65 R15) on mostly motorways for 4,000 average miles
    Paid £35.50 a tyre for these and they're miles worse than tyres I got for £31.50! It's like driving on a washboard roof. The noise is horrendous, It sounds like a tube train and the braking performance is frightening. There are decent tyres in this price range but these are certainly not one of those. Avoid these tyres at all cost.

    Skoda (205/55 R16 V) on mostly country roads for 0 average miles
    These were on my new to me Skoda Octavia 2ltr 150hp diesel model fitted to the front.They are noisy and even in the dry I feel only mildly confident putting them into a fast bend. But in the wet they are awful or on new shiny tarmac. You get wheel spin as you try to pull away. Even when going to overtake in the rain they wont put the power safely on the road and spin. Luckily I have not had to brake hard yet but needless to say I have had the car three weeks and will be changing the tyres to Goodyear fishers. A much better and safer choice. If you did city driving only these tyres might be okay as travelling at low speed and no twisty roads. But for country roads and dual carriageways I would not recommend them.

    Given 86% while driving a Mercedes Benz E class 2005 (225/45 R17 R) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
    I’ve hear this brand many years ago but never got a chance to try it, until I bought my Mercedes eclass, put these Constancy at the rear at a fantastic price, fantastic tyres, noise was low, wet grip very good. Great tyres for the money. Never buy expensive premium brands again, no need to pay for the brands commercial cost.
    Highly recommend these Constancy brand.

    just had these fitted to my Picasso, and the noise is dreadful, I am in two minds weather to go back and query this or just go else where, either way they have got to go. slowing down is like being on a tube train there driving me mad

    Bought a pair for my Ford Focus and had them on the rear. Handling is poor don’t even try to go on a bend on a motorway slip road in the wet as you can feel the car slide.
    You get what you pay for these days and that just about sums them up cheap.

    Brilliant tyres for the money £45 a tyre, had a set of 4 on my Renault Espace. Good grip and wet handling. Recommend to anyone other than high performance cars.
