Given 83% while driving a Ford Focus MK1 (195/60 R15) on mostly country roads for 22,000 average miles
These tyres gave me enough confidence mostly in torrential rains, no hydroplaning at all. Under dry condition, they had enough grip for a pretty dynamic ride. They were supposed to be "fuel saver" but according to some tyre tests, they had the biggest rolling resistance from all tyres in the test. Luckily I did not experience any fuel economy issues, at lest not coming from the tyres. Probably their high level of rolling resistance was the reason why they did not last long. If they had not been discontinued I would definitely buy them again.

Too weak in the rain. Broke a bumper, almost had a heart attack! Firestone, never again!

Given 64% while driving a Ford Fiesta (mk4 facelift) 1.3 Flight (175/65 R14 T) on mostly country roads for 290 spirited miles
Had 3 of these on my car when I bought it last month (2 on the front, another on the rear passenger side).

So far they seem ok when the car is moving, but seem to have a tendency to break traction & spin-up unexpectedly when pulling out of junctions from stationery without hardly touching the throttle.... and this is with a Ford Fiesta that only has a 59bhp 1.3 Endura E lump under the bonnet.

Considering replacing with some Uniroyal RainExpert tyres later on in the year.
