while driving a
(205/65 R16) on
mostly country roads
Confidence inspiring tyres.
Covered over 100 miles on them in mostly wet conditions.
The old tyres with approx 3mm tread were always spinning on roundabouts when accelerating from stationary.
Conversely these tyres are sticking to the roads well, I have had only 1 small spin on the left tyre. Considering the state of the road surface and my acceleration, this is acceptable.
Compared with other vans, I have found the Vivaro to be quick to spin front tyres and sometimes under steer.
Therefore it is good to have tyres which are grippy and responsive for a reasonable price.
Can’t comment on road noise/mpg - it’s a van so it is noisy and seems to average 33mpg whatever.
I would definitely buy this tyre again.
