Given 70% while driving a Ford Fiesta (175/65 R14 T) on mostly town for 20,000 average miles
Oem tyre for my fiesta. Good grip on wet and dry. But wear is poor.

Given 86% while driving a Hyundai I10 (165/60 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 23,000 average miles
This is a good tyre which lasted over 22000 miles on the front of my i10. Grip in wet and dry are both very good for this type of tyre. Also not bad in snow for a summer tyre but a winter tyre is much safer way to go in snow.
I have indicated in the review that I would buy again. The front tyres having lasted over 22000 miles have now been moved to the back and should last several thousand miles more. However I have been looking at replacement tyres and on performance, efficiency and price I have just ordered a couple more Hankook Optimo K715 tyres.

Given 59% while driving a Hyundai Getz (175/65 R14) on mostly town for 21,000 easy going miles
OEM tires on hyundai getz. Nice dry and wet grip and surprisingly they have some snow grip too (perhaps an all season tire?) but after 4 years of usage (or lets say neglect, as the car wasn't used much), cracks appeared between the points where the sidewalls connect to the upper thread (dont know how to describe it, I hope that's understandable). Perhaps due to low pressure, I don't know. I wouldn't buy these again even if that may not be the tire's fault. I have never seen this happening before.
