    Given 100% while driving a BMW E39 520i Touring (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 300 average miles
    I had to try these. Very cheap and according to the EU-label they should be very good. Fuel: B, Wet: A, Noise: 68dB. I put Landsail Sentury Qirin 990 on the front (half worn Sava in the rear), and the first thing I noticed was how quiet the car became. Interior noise was significantly reduced. Comfort is also very good. They're soft and nice over bumps, not harsh at all. In turns they feel firm/tight and composed. When emergency braking, they also feel good. In the wet they're amazing. I've driven through pretty deep water puddles at approx. 70km/h, with no signs of the front wanting to aquaplan. Also if I'm attempting skids in wet roundabouts, there is no understeer. The car is on stock suspension, and that's usually a recipe for understeer. I'll give a updated review when I've driven them more, but so far I only have good things to say about them. Exceptional value!

    Given 53% while driving a Renault Megane Estate 1.6DCi (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 5,000 spirited miles
    These tyres were fitted to my old Megane/2012 130hp, to replace the old Dunlop SportMaxx RT -205/50R17Y, only used in summer season. I feel like they are decent in the dry if you are not really pushing to the limit. I cannot complain about the wear at all, as I drove only 8.000 km Not quiet as my old tires, even if a lower noise level is indicated on the label. But, even are rated on label as XL, ZR and high weight index, the tyre have soft sidewalls. Drawback: they seem deflated all the time even with higher pressure, and slow response to steering ! Due this, I felt insecure, especially at high speed on highways. To be honest, although it is an extremely cheap tyre, I will return to the pro range tyres and I will not buy again Landsail.

    Those are cheap tires. I am used to Premium tyres so my appreciation is based on my earlier experiences. The car was previously fitted with Continental PremiumContact6 and in the winter Pilot Alpin 5. When I fitted these tyres, I directly noticed the difference in noise compared to the Pilot Alpin 5. The Landsail are a lot noisier. The breaking distance on dry weather is really long compared event to the Michelin winter. At tires mid-life I noticed a real Aquaplanning difference. I felt unsafe and I need to lower my speed on highways under the speed limit which was not with winter Michelin and previously Continental summer. At 8.100 miles the front tires were done. I have now driven a few hundred miles in this configuration : Continental PremiumContact 6 4MM upfront and Quirin 990 4MM back. I am really scared when comes the rain. Dry handling is fine but not really sporty as I like them to be in this configuration I feel really the difference in grip. When breaking hard the ABS is really working hard to leave the back from the car behind the front axle... Emergency breaking need some focus on the steering wheel. The tyre wear is fine as I usually average those kind of milage. For the price, they last really well. Those tires are a consent to weight. But as tires are the only contact linking me to the road so I am a little demanding on the performances. It was my first experience on cheap tires and it will be my last.

    Given 80% while driving a Saab Automobile 9 5 2.3T Estate (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,243 average miles
    I review this tyre based on what it is and what it is meant to do, as well as how I drive my car. Which aside from the occasional pulls on the highway and red to green lights is just leisure driving focusing on quietness and driving comfort. To preface and to emphasise that I cannot comment on the sportiness of these tyres, my car is not set up for sportiness. It’s a big estate with a boaty suspension setup. These tyres were chosen by me based on the best statistics available for the lowest price. At 76 euros per tyre, with a noise rating of 66dB, B in fuel consumption and A in wet braking; this was the only tyre that compared to other tyres met these criteria. It’s quite hard to test tyres beforehand so these ratings were the only thing I could use as a basis along with reviews from other people, which for the average consumer were very good. I’ll being by saying these tyres are incredibly quiet. At speeds of up to 50km/h they are practically silent. Inside the car I can only hear the AC and music when I’m driving at these speeds. At speeds of 70km/h and above you do start hearing more road and wind noise and it really depends on the roads you’re driving on. If the roads are smooth, the tyres will perform more similarly at these speeds as they do while driving slower. But if the roads are a bit harsher then they do start to generate a bit more noise. I’ve tested the noise levels inside the cabin with my Apple Watch and generally they adhere or exceed their noise rating of 66dB or less. The max noise level I recorded was the official noise rating of my car inside the cabin at 72dB. As for handling, I want to preface this as well by saying that I do not have a lot to compare with. But I have tested these tyres with a variety of different pressures and compared the feel and handling. My car calls for 2,5bar at the front and 2,4bar in the rear. At these pressures the car feels very comfortable to drive, although steering takes a hit as it feels heavier and slower to respond and takes more steering input turn in. At about 15-20% higher pressures for both front and rear, 2,7bar at the front and 2,6 in the rear the handling becomes noticeably sharper and I would probably advise that do you run these tyres a bit higher than what the car calls for if you want a balanced set up of comfort and handling. At 3,0bar at the front and 2,9bar in the rear (which is still within specifications for my car, although intended for max load and max speed) the tyres to no surprise are at their most responsive state. However, this is where I thought comfort suffered the most. If you value comfort, I would not recommend these pressures. I will mention that I did do a long drive of around 11 hours with pauses with the car completely FILLED (as in stuff was literally falling off if you opened any door) with my stuff as I was moving back home after 2 years of studying at max recommended pressures. As you do, I got bored along the way and drove about 190km/h for a bit on a very wide and empty section of the highway (at night!). It felt great and I had no issues or gripes about the tyres at these speeds. Wet handling is something that I haven’t feared at all with these tyres. On rainy days I feel 100% safe going the speed limit (which in my country is generally a max of 110km/h) knowing that these tyres will keep me on the road. I also want to comment on the noise levels at higher pressures which I perceived to be lower. It might not be that surprising what with contact patches becoming smaller at higher pressures. People have commented on these tyres looking a bit deflated, which I have experienced as well. But I trust this is how they are supposed to look as I’m running the correct size for my wheel as well as the recommended pressure for my car. The sidewalls are soft as indicated by the touring focused nature of the tyre and perceived comfort. I cannot comment on wear as I’ve only had them for a couple of months (I do however drive a lot, but I haven’t noticed anything odd about wear.) All in all, for being my first brand new set of summer tyres I am totally satisfied with them. I would recommend them to people who prioritise low noise and comfort and I would definitely buy again.

    Given 83% while driving a BMW E39 520i Touring (245/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,500 average miles
    An update to my previous review, as I'm replacing the 520i with a sportier model. It's a tire I would highly recommend for an average driver focusing on comfort rather than sporty feel. I never tested the tires to the limit, as the (comfort) limit of my slow, stock, wallowy E39 520i Touring is reached before the limit of the tires. The tire doesn't feel sporty, by any means. It's a soft comfort/touring tire. Bad/harsh road surfaces, speedbumps etc. is pretty well absorbed by the tires, and doesn't transfer much at all to the steering wheel. Because of this, they're less direct (steering-wise) than sportier tires, but that is to be expected. Not bad at all. As the Megane-driver points out, they tend to look a little deflated because of the soft sidewalls, but I can't say I ever felt any insecurity at any speed because of this. It might have something to do with the higher weight and softer suspension of the BMW, compared to the Renault. I also keep the tire pressure around 2.7-2.8 bar / 40psi. I found wet grip phenomenal! Through puddles and wet roads at all speeds, I've never once felt aquaplaning or lost steering feel. I found myself looking for puddles and increasing the speed to see if I could reach the aquaplaning limit. The noise level is also very low. I haven't driven them a lot of miles, but they show nearly no sign of wear at all. For a daily driver that's driven easy/average, I highly recommend these tires. For a sporty car and/or spirited driving style, I would recommend something else.
