switched from primacy 4's to these out of necessity.. to put it lightly these tyres feel downright unsafe in relatively any condition

Most of the very negative reviews on these tires are bs maybe from the same people who feel undercut. Great deal, quality good. I've driven them in dry wet and snowy conditions.

My very well treaded maximus M1 tyres have nearly killed me in wet weather due to no grip in the wet and taking off at lights is a gamble as your not sure weather you are going to collect the car next to you due to lack of traction I wouldn't recommend these tyres to my worst enemy stay clear if you drive in rain frequently regards a pissed off customer

Low speed corners in wet conditions the outside tyre simply cannot handle it, high speed easy going corners on other tyres this ones simply loses grip and goes wide. Good thing is you can easily feel the limit although is a bit abrupt

Decent in dry conditions but absolutely terrible in the wet weather, really easy to spin setting off from traffic lights and on certain occasions I could feel the car let go.

Given 30% while driving a Toyota Corolla T Sport E12 (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Easily the worst set of tyres I’ve ever had on a car, fine in the dry but once it’s wet you have to be very careful you will lose grip very easily.
You can almost feel the car trying to lose grip as you go round any sort of slight bend in wet conditions. On a wet roundabout all you get is major understeer unless you drive around really slowly.
Spent the extra few quid on a decent set of tyres.

They feel good on dry and wet. Good tread. Use this car for mainly city driving but also good for highway driving. Does the job

These tyres handle ok in the dry, but would have to be the worst tyres I’ve ever driven in the wet. It’s like you’re driving on soap. Very sketchy dangerous in the wet. I don’t recommend at all!!

They’re a good cheap tyre but slip in the wet particularly on tram tracks they do the job but the road noise is pretty bad.

I had a Max Trek that was only 3 years old and the tyre separated AND there was a gap developing in the tyre side. When I took it to a tyre retailer he said this was about the cheapest quality tyre you could buy for this car (Lexus hybrid). I replaced the front tyres with Michelins. The rear tyres (2 years old) will follow soon.

No problem in dry but in the wet it's another situation. I feel the back of my car slide on wet road...( hyundai i30). There cheap and as they say you pay for what you by. I wouldn't recommend these
