Top Laufenn S fit EQ Review

Given 77% while driving a Volkswagen Golf R32 MK4 (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
Had these tyres fitted when we got our Golf R32. Tread pattern is very similar to the Hankook H452 that I run on another car in the exact same size.
Compound is also very similar at a fraction of the cost. They look almost as if they came out of the same factory (with the same font and size stamping).
In terms of driving feel, I can’t fault these tyres. Excellent dry and wet performance with good low road noise. Car also had brand new rotors, pads and fluids so this helped benchmark the test.
They feel very similar to the Hankook S1Noble2, no surprise since they both made in Indonesia by Hankook and very likely to be from the same factory.

Given 58% while driving a Audi A4 Avant 2.0T Quattro (255/35 R19) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Fitment - 2014 A4 B8.5 S-Line wagon, 2.0T Normal city driving, all year around Dry weather performance - no issues, grip fine, low noise, good wear Wet weather performance - poor. Front tyres lose traction under moderate corner acceleration resulting in low speed understeer. No problem with straight line and sweeping bends grip but would not recommend pushing these tyres in the wet. Recommendation - summer-only tyres - ok. Winter or all-round use - avoid.

Given 91% while driving a Land Rover Range Rover Sport (275/40 R20) on mostly town for 7 easy going miles
I bought s used car with a mixture of Blacklion and Hifly tyres. I taught I needed a wheel bearing until my mechanic said it was the road noise. He offered the Laufenn and the car was transformed into a quite cruiser. I dont do big mileage or drive hard so I dont need a premium performance tyre. Just something quiet, stops me in the rain and doesnt feel detached from the steering wheel, Laufenn does all that at a good price and my fuel consumption is a little lighter. No issues with 12,000 kms todate.

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 70% while driving a Volvo S40 1.6d (205/55 R16 H) on mostly motorways for 20,000 average miles
I own the tires on VOLVO S40 1.6 116 horse power The tires have their advantages: Excellent grip on dry, Very well grip on wet with almost no sliding on heavy water. Low noise levels and very good feedback on the steering wheel. Disadvantages: The tires wear is average (that is expected considering the good grip levels) They perform not well at speeds higher than 170 kmh. The rubber is soft and higher internal temperatures makes the tire lose the ground. Not recommended for heavy vehicles or high speeds.

Given 37% while driving a Mercedes Benz A45 (235/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 9,000 spirited miles
Had a brand new set of 4 of this tyre come with the car when I bought it. Not a tyre Ive enjoyed at all. Really loud road noise which progressively gets worse and worse as they wear. Grip was very sketchy at times with the car skipping out on me a few times in the dry and worse so in the wet. After 9,000 miles of moderate to hard driving (with launches) the front has around 3 to 3.5mm left and the rear is around 5 to 5.5mm left.

Im replacing them early due to the noise and the lack of suitability for this car, they may perform a lot better on something with less performance.

Given 61% while driving a Honda Accord (205/60 R16 V) on mostly country roads for 1,200 spirited miles
I purchased 4 of these tyres to replace the Michelin Primacy LC's which were due for replacement. As my car is getting a lot older I decided that it may not be worth paying the extra for Michelin which I have been using on this car for 8 years. I have only done approx. 2000kms on them and it was very noticeable that the turn in response was poor and that the tyres could be heard scrubbing on the same bends that the Michelins just gripped and felt like you were driving on rails. The Laufenns are a quiet tyre when new but even after 2000km they have become a little noisier and have a feeling of vagueness in the straightahead position and the smoothness of the Michelins is absent.
Laufenns are good value for money as the Michelins are nearly twice the price and they would suit an average driver.
