    Given 82% while driving a Lexus IS250 RWD (245/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 12,500 average miles
    Marshall tires are made and owned by Kumho. Seems to be the their "budget" make, thread patterns look really similar to defased/discontinued Kumho products. Got a pair of these at the rear of my Lexus IS250 RWD. Dont know for sure when exactly the previous owner installed them, but ive done around 10.000 miles on them and they look good as new, save from a small chip on one of the outer sidewalls. They are really quiet and I have not managed to get them to break traction. Punctured one around 2.000 miles in and got it repaired with no further issues. Quite remarkable since the Dunlop's DZ102 wich the car has on the fronts are past their mid life with less mileage Dry and wet grip fells really good, they are perfectly capable of putting down the power of my IS, granted its not the most powerfull car out there, but judging by feel I would be perfectly happy to fit these on my 350 F Sport. Seem like a traditional korean tire to me, great wear, perfectly acceptable in everything else if not a little dull, overall great value.

    Given 71% while driving a Jaguar XF Sportbrake 2.2 (200) (255/35 R20) on a combination of roads for 700 average miles
    The tyres generally seem very good with no difference between these and the previous Pirelli's on a Jaguar XF, however someone in another review noted soft sidewalls and I have just suffered a puncture after only 700 miles on them, drove through a pothole at relatively low speed and the tyre sidewall has pinched and split so is not repairable. Now hunting for a replacement as the original garage seems to have stopped doing them.

    Given 90% while driving a Toyota Avensis (215/40 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
    Very impressed with these tyres. As a cheaper option than the tyres I had on before (Goodyear Eagle F1), I expected to notice some differences, but have not. Loads of grip, comfortable and durable. Tried to generate some understeer on a wet (& empty) motorway junction roundabout, to see if maybe it's only my relatively sedate driving style that makes these seem good, but no - nothing doing. Held on throughout. Will fit these again when need the next set.

    Given 76% while driving a BMW 3 series (205/55 R15) on a combination of roads for 2,000 miles
    After much searching I bought these tyres due to their excellent ratings and sensible price. Had them on an old BMW for 6months now only done just over 2000 miles and they still look brand new! I really can't fault them they are quiet and provide excellent dry grip and also feel competent when pushing the car in the wet. Didn't experience the noise problems I saw in other reviews and inflated correctly with a standard suspension setup I didn't find the sidewalls soft as others have mentioned. All in I can confidently say for the money £60 a tyre you will not find a better mid range for anywhere near the money these cost, brilliant tyre for a budget price!

    Given 41% while driving a MINI Cooper D (205/45 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 2,000 average miles
    Fitted to a Mini Cooper. Like all run flats, they are stiff and make the ride noisy and hard. These are much worst than standard fit Dunlops.
    Plenty of grip in the dry although a sudden snap into a scary drift when pushed.
    However, the slightest sign of moisture and they are scary and dangerous. Slippy, very slippy. Lots of noisy understeer and no grip to speak of. My big Land Rover Discovery can go round wet corners faster and safer.
    Cheap and nasty. Very nasty in the damp.

    Given 89% while driving a Ford S Max (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 44,000 spirited miles
    I bought these tyres as a mid range replacement when I'd just bought the car. Probably one of the best decisions, these were inexpensive and have lasted for ages. I was expecting to have to change them within 18 months but they've last three years and I'm just about to replace only the front ones, the rears could probably last me another year.

    Given 49% while driving a BMW 320d touring (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 2,000 average miles
    I've put them on a back of my 3 series estate, (255/40/17) and cant't wait to take them off. It feels like the back end has a life of it's own. Side wall of the tyre is very soft and deflects a lot in a corners, giving a very weird feedback.

    Given 77% while driving a Mitsubishi Evo 4 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 700 spirited miles
    Recently put four of these on my Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and have been pleasantly surprised, they offer plenty of wet and dry grip but i have to agree with the other review that there is some road noise. I push my car hard, especially into and out of corners and the Matrac's really do work well, maybe they just suit my car and wheel combination. Overall very impressed for the money spent.

    Given 59% while driving a Vauxhall Astra SXi (205/50 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
    I had Marshall Matrac FX's fitted (front only) in Dec 2008 and now they are just about legal so replacing with Uniroyal RainSport 2's as I have read the reviews and alot of people think that the Uniroyal RainSport 2's give better wet grip and lets face it, in England it rains most of the time.

    The Marshalls give a very hard ride as the tyre walls seem very rigid. The road noise is average. The only thing I really dont like is that they follow patterns in the road rather than the direction you want them to.

    Hope this helps.....
