    Given 29% while driving a Toyota Avensis (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
    Thought I would try a set of cheap budgets on my car and ended up with these. They are a terrible tyre. Traction control light would start flashing on my car when it never used to - that is in the dry too. Didn't even need to try particularly hard in order for it to happen! Bear in mind I drive a petrol Toyota Avensis, which is not exactly a powerful car. Do not buy these. If you do need to buy budgets because you are low on cash, there are better brands to get than these.

    A good cheap tyre that will stick well in dry conditions once up to temperature. Doesn't shed water like a Michelin PS4 but you do realize this is a Firemax tyre. An excellent tyre if you need a set to last for a while without paying a Frenchman's mortgage. Adjust expectations accordingly.

    Given 27% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (215/55 R16) on mostly town for 3,000 average miles
    I was in a bit of a problem with cash needed to get some tyres for mot. local tyre company said these were high end of budget range. these are terrible tyres i would never buy them again. slides in wet very low traction they squeal in dry conditions even at low speed around a roundabout but grip is ok wearing fast done about 3000 miles i would guess about 1/3 down on front. i drive a 1.0 ford focus so not a very fast car and can really tell these are poor on it. paid £280 for 4 tyres which isn't a lot and yes they are budget but should have paid a few more quid and got a mid range tyre.

    Given 43% while driving a Nissan Juke (225/45 R18) on mostly motorways for 6,000 easy going miles
    Overall not to good. Slides in the wet it’s the worst budget tyre I ever had. Mileage 6000 , dry fair. I do 30000 miles a year most Tiers I get 25000 to 26000 out of a Tiers. Working out the price. I would need 4 tiers to do the at least to do my 25000 two tiers that’s a cost £580 . Would be better to buy tow top of the range one. And save money cost £300. Do not buy is what I say.
