    After suffering Bridgestone and Uniroyal this tyre really put a smile on my face. Excellent tyre at reasonable price.

    Very good tyres on dry and wet. I think is one of the best. Only problem - wear, but Fulda Sportcontrol is a sport tyre.

    Latest Fulda SportControl Reviews

    Given 80% while driving a Subaru forester 2.5xt (215/55 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    These were fitted to the Forester XT 2.5 turbo when we bought it used.
    I cannot fault them for grip wet or dry, never once did the traction control light flash up, never once did the car feel light no matter how hard it was pushed or how fast one might pull away on a roundabout or junction wet or dry.
    They were not used during winter because we have a full set of winter tyres on wheels.
    However i have removed and replaced them, barely worn, and the reason is the hard ride and the road noise, but they were probably 6 years old as the car does very little mileage, even now it's only covered 33,000.

    If you don't mind road noise and ride quality then these are really very good.

    Just out of interest they have been replaced with Falken ZE914 (not yet driven on the road as it's January so still on the winter set) , purely because they have proved to have good grip in normal wet or dry conditions and are wearing well on my daughter's hard driven Civic.

    Great tyre. Have done 60,000 kms and still has half its legal tread left. Grips well and is quiet.

    Given 81% while driving a BMW 3 series (225/35 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
    Great combination tyres- Comfort and dry/wet grip is good.
    Fuldas replaced previous Falken912 so big improvement on comfort but not as good sharpness in steering.
    On an E90 320d Msport they take bumps well and grip is very good dry and wet. Very secure and smooth at motorway speeds.
    Wear after 12K miles is ok,,, prob 3k miles more to go.
    Would buy again.

    Given 37% while driving a Toyota Auris (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    These tyres were promised as good tyres in all conditions. Untrue. These tyres have no wall strength and feel as though the wheels are working loose. They give no confidence when going into any type of corner, if it's a long turn (motorway exit or run on) the back end wants to slide around in front of you. I have tried various pressures and weights and the only time they seem to perform adequately is when the cars loaded with 5 adults and the pressure is increased by 2lbs. Do not buy these tyres, especially when for another £8-£12 you can get a real performance tyre. The only good thing I have to say for these tyres is that I have curbed them on a few occasions and they are indestructible! Not even a scuff on the side wall. 5000 miles in and there is virtually no sign of wear, pity as I want rid of these wretched things. I won't make the mistake of listening to the small independent tyre dealer offering advise in future either.

    Given 49% while driving a Mercedes Benz SLK 350 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
    Got them with a used car, 7mm left on all 4, 2 years old. This tire is mediocre in all of its properties, except for grip on slightly wet roads, which is rather on the bad side of things. I do appreciate when a car lets me feel that it has a life beyond the stability gadgets but the Sport Control is losing grip way too fast on corners with residue humidity on the road, from some rain 1hr ago.

    Saving 100 bucks at the wrong end and buying cheap tires for anything better than a Corsa/Ka/Twingo class car is stupid and dangerous, even if the tires make it into the "mediocre" category somehow, like the Fulda Sport Control.

    Given 90% while driving a Skoda Octavia estate (225/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 14,000 spirited miles
    Much improved grip and reduced noise over the highly rated Goodyear Eagle asymmetrics I had before. Slightly poorer fuel consumption. No change in the ride. Fronts have lasted 14000 miles - never spun the wheels once - and I couldn't say that for the Goodyears. Some noise as they reached the end of their life, but absolutely no loss in grip, wet or dry - amazing. Have just re-ordered - an unsung hero of the tyre world.

    For the price these tyres were great. Fitted to a chipped Astra 5 door at the front end. Previously I had Falkens on the front but i found the tracking of them was disconcerting , once changed it felt like a new car and mush more responsive. Would recommend highly.

    Given 99% while driving a Opel (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,200 spirited miles
    Absolutely a great tire, in every condition of the road: it showed no weakness even under torrential rain (no sign of aquaplaning); it is accurate and reliable on dry asphalt. By visual inspection, after 5,000 kilometers covered, it still looks new. It's a German product, belonging to Goodyear-Dunlop Group: it's a secure purchase!

    Awesome tyres in all aspects... amazing dry and wet grip, super comfortable and quiet... had to replace a DISAPPOINTING tyre such as Bridgestone RE050 (stiffy/noisy) and now my car is like bing on a railroad.
    100% reccommended!

    Best tyre i've had, dry/wet grip is fenomenal. Wear seems pretty good aswell. Driven about 13k miles/20000km with these tyres, and i've got at least 50% left on the rears.
    Driven in Sweden, so much wet roads!
    (comparing to continental, pirelli, Michelin. And hankooks, but they were really rubbish)
