Given 81% while driving a Citroën C5 (215/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 30,000 average miles
Excellent grip in the snow. We live in rural Aberdeenshire which has plenty of snow and ice thro' the winter. We do high mileages also and these tyres make sense as all year round tyres at £54 a tyre from Mytyres, they're cheaper than many ordinary summer tyres. I know they should be V rated but who's going to drive at 136 mph or in a style likey to heat them up to that temperature on rural A roads??
If money is your thing, go and buy a pair of verdistines and pay £120 a tyre, otherwise these tyres make good sense and are an excellent all round tyre. (I had a pair of old Vredistines on my Forrester and they were very slippery in the wet and the dry).

Best cheap tyre. Better than some other cheap that adds braking distance rather than keeping it 10 percent from the best tyres like this one, I keep distance while driving, I could use the worst crappy tyres but as Ive aged I rather have the extra safety, therefore I bought what I thought was the best cheap winter tyre and it can take it all. Will take you forward on 5" deep snow , wet and dry average. Best usage for tyre is below 0 C degress because these tyre are very soft.
Tyres only used one season and two more months ahead.

Given 77% while driving a Volkswagen Touran sport TDi (225/45 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
We had it on our family car Touran Sport with DSG. Mostly town driving by wife however we also do quite a bit of motorway driving. This year will be the 4th season and we have driven around 15 in last 3 years. Their handling is wooly. Absolutely no feedback when it warm (above 12C), acceptable in cold. Grip is second to none. I have driven these in heavy snow on motorways un-gritted lanes and never miss a beat. Not bad at all in wet and frosty weather. Never skidded and have been thoroughly reliable. Also lasted well. At £47 they are a bargain and do the job. Why spend a fortune on big brands.

Given 33% while driving a Kia Motors Rio 2 (195/55 R15) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
Tires were my budget choice for winter. Live in hilly place so we have snow and slush quite often winter time and as we do not have Siberia here i was looking for something cheap that will last for 3-4 seasons.
Tyre is performing well in the snow and mud but what happens when is wet either dry can make you feel scared , goosebumps guaranteed while breaking on wet or dry with temperature > 0C. These have no grip whatsoever in wet , car easily spins wheels on 2nd gear. Although designed for s+m should perform in temp up to +7C wet and dry condition but they don't!
Simply dangerous
