while driving a
(205/45 R17 V) on
This is the worst tyre I have ever owned. I recently bought a used Mini Cooper, which the previous owner had kindly fitted with 4 of these tyres. They were fine in the dry (ish) as soon as the roads became slightly damp it was like I was driving on ice. No control over the car whatsoever at any speed. I could go round an average roundabout at max 20 mph, as any faster and I would have no control over which direction I was needing to go.
I have just recently had 2 winter tyres fitted to the drive wheels at the front of the vehicle, and this morning on my way into work, ended up facing the wrong way and nearly had a car drive into me on a roundabout. These tyres are a death trap.
They were also very noisy, and offered the hardest ride. The Mini may have sports suspension, but my 2 new tyres on the front have offered such a quieter and softer ride.
