while driving a
Mazda 8 (MPV) 2.3
(235/50 R18) on
a combination of roads
The dry grip seems to be ok, they're not Bridgestone Adrenalin Re003 or Michelin PS4 sticky, but they're more than enough for a family mpv (I did use Potenza RE003 and PS4 on a family mpv), but they will aquaplane dangerously on road with poor drainage and puddle.
Aquaplaning at 100km/h on a highway isn't fun and scary, but these tyres will aquaplane easily at more 80km/h and would actually lift both front tyres without any grip whatsoever. Aquaplane once at an 80km/h bend and needed to counter steer the oversteer moment in a FWD family mpv, which is not usual with my other set of tyres (Bridgestone, Michelin, Yokohama).
Dry grip is not bad, they're better than the Yokohama that was an OEM tyre from the factory, could lean on it and progressively understeer with enough warning so you could control the understeer. They're noisy after 20,000km, but they will last a long time. If I'm not mistaken they're in the 500 treadwear, but replaced them at 35,000 because I got a puncture and sidewall was destroyed because of that.
