    These really are a very good tyres. Grip on the dry surface is perfect for my experience compared to other brands. Also grip on the wet surface is not bad and I am impressed. I would definitely buy another set of these tyres at any time when required to do so and I will highly recommend to anyone.

    If it's warm and dry these tyres seem ok, however in the wet they are down right dangerous. Even in a modestly powered car, in third gear acceleration can cause the driven wheels to totally lose contact. In the wet my traction control is permanently cutting in.

    I would not recommend these tyres despite the acceptable dry performance as they are too much of an issue in the wet. I will be dumping them part worn when I swap back to my winter tyres in a few months.

    Given 37% while driving a Volkswagen Scirocco 2.0 TSI 210hp (235/40 R18) on mostly country roads for 8,000 average miles
    Driven on a 2010 2.0TSI 210bhp Scirocco GT, all four wheel fitted with Mythos'. Front tyres have lasted 8000 miles, I may get another 1000 miles from them but it'll be tight, rear tyres will last 10000. Offers average to good levels of grip in the dry, my nerves go before the car in most occasions. They allow the car to grip in the dry with a small progressive tendency to under steer giving a feeling of confidence. In the wet the story is totally different- cannot put the power down at all spinning the wheels in first and second under normal driving conditions and in third when accelerating hard. Under steer is much much worst in wet conditions and I have no confidence to approach a corner carrying any momentum. Would not buy again. Tyres came fitted by approved VW garage when buying second hand (3 years old with very low miles). Disappointing that the VW garage fits such a poor tyre to a performance car.

    Given 30% while driving a Ford Mondeo Titanium X (235/45 R18) on mostly town for 8,000 easy going miles
    These really are a very poor tyre. Grip in the dry is (just) ok for normal running around town, although the tram-lining is becoming worse as the tyres wear. But as soon as the road becomes damp they become dangerous. It is almost impossible to pull out of a junction without spinning the wheels, even with very low revs and a feather touch on the throttle. Wet cornering and braking inspires no confidence, with a feeling almost like driving on ice. Would definitely not recommend and I'll be changing them very soon, even though they are only half worn - I value my life too much to continue taking this unacceptable risk.

    Worst and most dangerous tyres I have ever fitted, and one ruptured it's casing on a very small pothole. In one word? Rubbish

    Audi A4 3.0 litre TDI S Line Quattro (235/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
    Probably the worst tyres I have ever fitted to my car. Poor in terms of wear and handling in the wet was uncertain. Tyres come with a good warranty and are fairly cheap. Wont be buying again.

    I bought a full set of these tyres for my Vectra 2.6V6 and suffice to say they were good at first but have only lasted 4 months and are worn out. Ive only been driving locally roughly 3000 miles and dont drive to extremes. I,m very disappointed with the quality of these tyres. I,m now looking at an all season tyre as they have a better lifespan.

    Decent tyres, very good value for money and including a puncture warranty. Can't go wrong at less than £100 fitted for a 235 40 18 tyre. Decent grip wet and dry and lasting quite well.. Possibly go for the Barum Bravuris 2 next for comparison, but these are a little more expensive at £110 fitted and don't have a puncture warranty.

    Given 81% while driving a Honda Accord iVtec Type S saloon (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 18,000 spirited miles
    Medium range price for premium quality/performance/wear. Never achieved 18000 miles from a set of four tyres on any car before so very pleased with this mileage on a full set of Marangoni Mythos over 20 months. Just renewed 4 of these with fronts just at the wear blocks an rears down to 2.5mm, having rotated front to rear at 12000 miles. I debated spending more for other premium brands but the clincher was the lifetime free puncture repair, valve and balance, plus damage replacement guarantee........ this kind of confidence speaks volumes and I have to say is backed up now by my own experience of nearly two years driving on a full set. I`ve had premium tyres go out of shape so to my mind the guarantee just demonstrates the quality. Am not a nutty driver caring to comment on driving at the limit.... race driving is for race tracks but I`m also not a Sunday driver and like to get where I'm going without wasting time...... these tyres have been fine under `enjoyable spirited`driving... hope this is helpful.

    110,000 miles of motoring in this car and I highly recommend the Marangonis. After finding the original Michelin Primacy HP's dissapointing in terms of grip, I went through, 2 sets of Bridgestone Potenza's and 6 sets of Goodyear Eagle F1's on my 280hp E Class Merc. I am an enthusiastic driver and enjoyed the grip from them. The car has a lot of torque and with the power only going through the back wheels and me enjoying the car, the last 2 rear sets of Goodyear's lasted 6k and 8k respectively. After hitting harder times I fitted the Marangoni's purely because I couldn't afford the Goodyear tyres. However, after 4 sets of 4 I am very impressed. The grip, accuracy and feedback is as good if not slightly better than than the Goodyears IN THE DRY and they wear around 40% better than the Goodyears(about 12k from the rears when driving like I stole it and then 26k for slightly less enthusiastic driving).

    The only thing is that the wet grip is probably 20% less than the Goodyear's but I am not suggesting for one second it is anything other than good (but there isn't a tyre that can touch the Goodyears in the wet). As for snow... forget it, like all the rest, they are a performance summer tyre so you shouldn't expect it.
