while driving a
(245/35 R18) on
a combination of roads
I've had these tyres on a BMW M140i now for about 1000km of driving. As soon as the tyres were fitted, I drove up to the high country region of Victoria, Australia, the tyres have done a bunch of motorway, B road and sporty mountain driving in dry and wet conditions. They replaced Pilot Sport 4s which I had zero issues with.
First impressions, the tyres are much quieter/comfortable than the ones they replaced. Road imperfections, ruts, bridge expansion joints etc feel less jarring through the car. So comfort when on cruise control on the highway is better.
Taking the tyres up the mountains, they feel more precise and have stronger "bite" than the outgoing tyres, which should be expected. Dry grip is great and wet performance is just as confidence inspiring as before. Some might feel they are a little vague but I felt they were more precise than the old tyres. I think it's more a matter of the tyres really needing to be pushed to find their limits, which I never did.
If you have a HiPo car and don't track it, but like some great tyres that don't break traction and give confidence on country roads, these are the tyres for you. These will deal with anything you throw at them.
