  • Positive - High resistance to aquaplaning
  • Negative - Poor grip in the wet
  • Overall - After Pirelli acquired two Russian tyre plants, the need arose and a new brand under which Russian refineries would be issue "second line" tyres. Formula tyres made ​​on the new equipment in Voronezh, and in the same factory also produce tyres for Pirelli. Asymmetric tyre tread Formula Energy means the Formula resists aquaplaning almost as well as Pirelli, but the wet asphalt, where the rubber composition is important, the Formula lags behind, but are good for the second line subgroup. On dry roads the performance is average, and for acoustic comfort and smoothness they are better than more expensive tyres like Nokian and Bridgestone. And in the final ranking Formula tyres are higher than Bridgestone: on one step with tyres Yokohama. The debut is a success.

    Given 41% while driving a Volvo V70 2.5 T awd (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
    Half worn down on a Volvo V70 and the wet grip is absolutely horrible. On fresh wet pavement, the AWD system has to kick in almost every time you accelerate quicker because they lose grip so quickly. Feels scary driving if there's water on the road, even though there's a lot of tread left and the pressures are all normal.

    Given 83% while driving a Renault Clio III 1.2 55kW (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 500 average miles
    Our five year old Renault Clio Sport Estate 1.2 75bhp petrol had covered only 36,000 kms since new, but the original fitment Goodyear tyres on the front were about 70 worn. The main problem was they were cracking/perishing a bit and the r/h/s front had worn on the shoulder a bit due to the number of roundabouts in fhe Treviso area. The car is driven mainly on short to medium length journeys only. The Clio does seem to be quite kind to tyres and the tracking well set up at the factory, unlike other new cars I have bought

    165/65 15 is an odd size, so you are automatically restricted on your choice. A large tyre centre offered us Pirellis or Formula brand which we were told is a subsidisry of Pirelli and made in Europe. Tyres are a rip off in Italy as unlike France or the UK, there seems to be a resistence to an Internet sourced tyre supplier being started. So comparable tyres for the Clio were about 30% more each than what I would have paid via AlloPneus in France.

    The Formula Energy tyres were €145 for two balanced and fitted.

    The precious Goodyears were not very grippy in the wet, and the day the Formula tyres were fitted the weather was terrible with a lot of water streaming across the roads and pooling too. Driving around the same roundabouts and other stretches of road the Formula tyres demonstrated good grip in the slippery conditions where the Goodyears would have let go. Aquaplaning resistance was excellent too as the tyres cut through standing water.

    The Formula tyres have an asymetric tread and look really good. They are much quieter running than the Goodyears obviously because they are new and have more rubber, but also because the tread pattern consists of two deep sipes to disperse water and a continuous type pattern rather than a block type. I also noticed that directional stability was improved with these tyres, and the car responded more enthusiastically to steering inputs.

    Long term I am not too concerned about wear as we cover so few kilometres, but for the money if you do not have a high performance car, these tyres are to be recommended.
