    This tyre gives me the confidence I need when driving, It quietens down my road noise significantly and is a massive upgrade from the budget tires my car came with. Would highly recommend to anyone with budget tires

    Given 64% while driving a Toyota Yaris Mk4 Hybrid 1.5 (XP210, M15A FXE) (195/50 R16) on mostly country roads for 25,000 average miles
    While decent grip and resonable road feedback, they are very noisy and got worn out in about 25.000 miles on a small hatchback. I won't buy again, there are better alternatives at the same price or bit more.

    Given 49% while driving a SEAT LEON ST 1.6TDi SE DSG (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
    This tires came with the car when I bought it and I thought I would change them as soon as I can. But they ended up being better than expected, so I kept them for a year. They are good in dry conditions, but they are not uhp or anything near a sport tire. Feedback gets vague when you push them and you don't really have any precision when driving faster. But they don't just snap and lose grip, everything happens gradually. They are predictable and safe when driving normally. Things get worse in wet, but they are not deadly like some other Chinesium tires. You will still get lateral slip, abs on harder braking and spinning if you get aggressive if any way on wet, but they are good with aquaplaning and will keep you on the road if you careful. All in all they are faaar far away from the wet grip you get from premium tires or something like Nokian Wetproof. Would not buy them

    I bought my car and it had this tires at the front. But there really not good. They are good tires if you just want to make kms... I like to drive in the mountains and as fast as possible, and they couldnt keep up. I changed to the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT and the car was much better and Handling and Braking.

    I’ve had several sets of these tyres and for the price they’re great, not the best in the wet however this is probably made worse by my car being rear wheel drive and powerful. But on the whole I always buy these tyres as they do really well on my car I get about 15-17 thousand out of a set of rear tyres and about 30 ish from a set of front tyres (rear wheel drive bias) and they perform phenomenally well on my car even with it being a high performance vehicle. Would highly recommend (I find these better than premium hankooks.)
