while driving a
(225/45 R17 W) on
a combination of roads
Had these tyres fitted on my mums car, she doesn’t drive fast or hard so they’re been pretty much perfect as they’re long lasting.
Last set of TL1000s lasted about 30,000 on the front and rears were still at 4-5mm.
I am a keen driver myself (track experience ect in my own cars ) and at first I was a little put off by the low scores of the tyres, however when driving on them they were surprisingly good. The car grips well in the dry and handles ok. On back roads they make the little A2 quite a competent car and I have upset faster cars through the corners.
Temperature is a big factor with these tyres, colder outside temperatures the performance drops of significantly.
In the wet they’re not as good, but in such a low power car they’re not too overwhelmed. I haven’t driven fast in the wet so I couldn’t comment on their performance with speed in wet conditions.
Overall surprisingly good given their low ratings, but are never going to compare to premium tyres.
