    Given 74% while driving a Subaru Legacy 3.0R (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8 average miles
    Don't worry about the brand - they are actually made by Avon in Wiltshire. They are great in the snow and ice (dispatched the "beast from the east" no problem on a Subaru Legacy 3.0R), and for the price, can't be beaten. Don't look bad either. Will definitely buy again.

    Given 62% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 6 GTI (205/55 R16 T) on mostly town for 1,000 spirited miles
    First off, note that the WM SA2+ actually refers to two different tyres, produced by two different plants by Cooper. Sizes 13-16" are made in a factory in Serbia, speed rating T (190km/h), while 17" and above with higher speed rating are made in the UK. The two models have different rubber compound and tread design (this can be seen on cooper website) and in my view should deserve different name, this is not a transparent marketing approach by Cooper. Anyhow to the review, my tyres are 16" T-speed rating fitted on a golf GTI. Overall the grip is surprisingly good in both dry and wet the car sticks to the road much better than I expected (haven't tested in snow or sub-zero temperatures). The comfort is pretty good and noise level average. On the bad side of things, the road feedback is really not the best and handling is rather underwhelming. In a spirited entry to hard corner the car nosedives. During the usual spirited drive in and out of the city the suspension feels "wobbly", and the steering feedback is nothing more than passable. Overall I would not buy this tyre again for a hot hatch, but it should be a perfectly fine choice for a small city cars.

    Given 56% while driving a Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2018 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 0 spirited miles
    Very good grip, but the car handling and road feedback with these tyres is absolute nightmare! It's very scary turning a corner fast with these tires.

    Given 73% while driving a BMW E46 330i (225/45 R17 H) on mostly town for 30,000 easy going miles
    Great winter (standard compound) tyre at reasonable cost. It's very comfortable,soft and stable in the wet. Snow and ice performance average. After these tyres I switched to nordic (soft) compound for extra grip on ice and snow.
