Given 58% while driving a Opel Astra H CDTI (195/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 200 spirited miles
Had fitted these tyres for over 200 miles now. Initial impressions are as expected from a budget tyre. Rubber compound is not extremely soft, might be slightly noisy at speeds over 75mph. Handling and road feedback is not great due to soft sidewalls. Also had to perform emergency wet braking and felt that it could have performed better. On the positive side they were good resisting aquaplaning at speed of 60mph and did perform good in a slush giving confidence in ability to control the vehicle. Most likely these tyres would not be my first choice for highly powered vehicles and would not be suitable for spirited driving. Overall considering the price I would recommend these tyres.
