    Given 44% while driving a Opel Signum 2.2 DTi (205/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 20,000 easy going miles
    Minerva tyres like a plastic. Very slippery on the road. Will never buy again.

    I have driven on these tyres for 5000 km and have never experienced any problems. They are great for the price.

    Given 46% while driving a Citro├źn c3 Picasso 1.6 diesel (195/55 R16 H) on mostly country roads for 2,500 easy going miles
    Perfectly ok grip in dry and wet, with good resistance to aquaplaning. Quite comfortable. I would recommend this tyre if it weren't for two serious drawbacks:

    1. Sidewalls are too soft, cars feels insecure in cornering. My car is small MPV.
    2. Rubber gets too old too fast. Treadwear is not a problem, I have 5 mm left but I had to replace the tyres because of rubber getting too old. Cracks and uneven tread, making vibrations and an unstable drive.The tyres are 6 years old.

    Given 28% while driving a Lancia Ypsilon 0.9 Twinair 85 (185/55 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 1,200 easy going miles
    Girlfriend had these on the rear of a Lancia Ypsilon 312. Already on the car when she got the car. They were horrible.
    In a wet turn the car suddenly oversteered.
    Also they were noisy, and seemingly extremely snappy..

    The tyres were 2 years old, but already had many cracks in the rubber.

    Replaced them asap after the spin with Vredestein Sportrac5 which were already at the front.

    Given 63% while driving a Mazda 2 SP (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
    My demio is light in the front these are an improvement on the original set but being a front wheel drive it has better traction on acceleration but still ploughs when decelerating and turning into corners. not recommended for Winter conditions.
