    Latest Imperial Ecodriver 5 Reviews

    Given 57% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (205/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 12,600 average miles
    Good performance on dry roads (urban/motorway) in warm conditions. Seems to perform well in cornering and acceleration. Braking performance is not so good compared to better brands (see: any brand priced above Imperial). When conditions become cold and very wet these tyres are quite poor when cold and do not provide much confidence in handling at all. Road noise is very loud unless set to high pressures. The benefits of high pressure means good rolling resistance behaviours at high pressures though (Front 38 psi, Rear 44 psi). The noise doesn't decrease much if setting pressures to manufacturer ratings (Front 32 psi, Rear 36 psi). This applies on motorways and urban roads above 60 km/h. Comfort is not good under any condition at any reasonable speed (>30km/h) as all impacts are felt even at lower pressures. Feedback is okay but nothing special beyond the tyre making you very aware that it's slipping a lot in wet conditions on corners. Fuel economy is quite good under dry conditions and high pressures, as noted above. Overall would not buy again, only had the chance to test these tyres as they were fitted new by dealer upon taking ownership of vehicle.
