while driving a
(195/65 R15 T) on
a combination of roads
I bought new Berlingo van which had these tyres from the factory. First I didn't knew much about those tyres, I was just afraid when I saw that those are made in China, since I didn't ever drive on tyres from China. Those tyres have M+S marking on the side, but not mountain and snowflake, so it is definitely not all-season tyre, but simply just summer tyre.
Feeling in driving those tyres is not so good. You don't get much feedback from the road or on cornering, and on wet those are good until they have grip. When they lose grip, car slips on the nose. Well, actually, Berlingo Van is not car with which you would need high performance tyres, so for some users those may be great ones (Berlingo Van L1 had these, and L2 variants had Kleber Dynaxer HP3 fitted), and I would not consider these as next tyres.
Of course, Citroen/Peugeot for sure got great deal with GT Radial, so this is why these tyres are
At the moment I have 20.000 km on clock, so whole mileage is done on these tyres, and while you may see that tyres are used, it can be visible that there is enough profile for next 30-40 thousand km.
Nevertheless, if I want long lasting tyre I'd rather go with Michelin.
