    Given 71% while driving a Nissan almera 1.5 (185/65 R15 H) on mostly town for 20,000 average miles
    Goodyear duragrips started very well with excellent performance in snow when they were new. They've worn quite fast though and have about 1mm to the TWI after 20k miles. Performance really dropped off fast recently so will need to replace them before I get to the TWI.

    I have been using this model since I own my car (5 years).
    This is second set. I probably will buy new set next year. Can say just I am satisfied with durability. Although I did not have any other brand of tyre, for me this is best choice. And it has reasonable price.

    Given 80% while driving a Honda Jazz (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 40 easy going miles
    Best front tyre I've ever fitted to a Honda Jazz 2009. Excellent wear pattern and fuel economy. The Jazz (or Fit) from this era has a problem with edge-wear on the fronts. This seems to be much worse with some tyres than others. This eventually ends up effecting handling and fuel efficiency as well as (obviously) halving the lifespan of the tyres. It's taken me 140,000 miles and 5 sets of tyres (3 of which were prematurely worn out) to get to 'grips' with this.

    Given 79% while driving a Suzuki CELERIO (165/60 R14) on a combination of roads for 37,000 average miles
    This is a decent tire. I cross around 20,000 KM a year. The tire were perfect for two years. Tire sides are heavy duty with no problems at all. On the third year, I started noticing slip on wet roads. The rubbers started to show dryness too. I recommend the tire but not more than Max. 60,000KM.

    Given 79% while driving a Renault 5 (155/70 R13 T) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
    I bought these Goodyear Duragrip and made about 20.000 km in 4 years. In town, motorway and also curvy mountain roads. When they were new I was able to climb a hill even in snow, where my newer station wagon didn't make it even with winter tyres (Goodyear Ultragrip 7+, 2years old)! The grip was always very good.
    Then (after buying a new car) I parked it in my garage with still 6 mm of profile left.
    Five years later I re-registered that old Renault R5, tyres still look good, no cracks at all, I don't even feel any shaking at higher speed! But now they are about 10 years old and in a little faster driven turns it doesn't hold well anymore. It's time for a new set. For a higher millage i would defintely buy Goodyear, but for yearly max 2.000 of sunday-driven kilometers I will probbably choose a cheaper brand.

    Given 73% while driving a Mitsubishi (185/65 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 18,000 easy going miles
    My second set on the car, had them for 3 years and about 35000 km's.
    Basically nice tire, but it doesn't justify it's name, since mine got fairly worn and torn on the edges - guess that it's because of some macadam roads usage, mostly on holidays. I remember seeing them torn the same day when I failed trying (more than hour!) to get up the hill on some steep macadam road with sharp rocks - those sharp ends really torn the Duragirps, a little bit from every possible angle. After that they should be replaced, but I drove them a year more with no problems. Anyway, solid choice for Serbian roads.

    Managed to almost spin my car in a car park this morning, not even accelerating!

    They seem good in the dry, but I'm not keen on their wet performance!

    I wouldn't buy these again.

    Given 90% while driving a Toyota Yaris (175/65 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
    I have now had duragrip tyres for approx 18 months. Ride much quiter than old Goodyear GT2. After 10,000 miles front tyres had reduced from 7mm to 5mm. Rear tyres down to 6mm. No appreciable improvemnt in mpg. Try not to exceed the speed limit and potter along motoways between 65 & 70 mph. Car corners exceptionally well but no better than original tyres. Do not do fierce acceleration from a standing start and try to achieve good mpg figures. Pleased with tyres so far.

    Great tyre - Excellent grip whatever the weather.
    Pretty quiet even at 110 mph (on track of course ;) )
    They do wear down pretty quickly though. Done 9k and only have 3.5mm left.

    Most of my driving is twisty country roads at 40 - 50mph
