Given 96% while driving a Volkswagen Polo 6N (185/60 R15) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Came fitted on my used VW Polo 1.0se. They lasted 10000 miles and still had 2 to 3mm left. Never let me down in Scottish weather not even a squeel, even with some spirited driving when alone in the car. Very impressive for a budget tyre only changed to a premium tyre for passenger safety and insurance worries. Good product.

Given 70% while driving a Toyota Avensis estate 1.8 petrol (215/55 R17 W) on mostly town for 4,000 average miles
This review is for Toledo TL1000 tyres 215/55ZR17 98W XL from SD International. . I got my Toyota Avensis 1.8 CVT Estate second hand (ex Europe car hire car) and it had a pair of these on the front. Not knowing that much about tyres at the time I decided to put the same on the rear which had been the OEM Dunlop Efficient grip. At the point the car had done 42K miles. We mostly drive in London with the occasional long trip. For the price of around £40 a tyre you can't fault them. I can't do a direct comparison to other tyres on the same car but the wet grip and dry grip in warmer weather is very good. When it drops below 10C the tyres tend to harden up and being XL tyres and seemingly a hard wearing compound (7mm still on the rear after 4k miles) that probably isn't surprising. You are definitely going to get a bit better handling, comfort and safety with a £100+ tyre but I don't think you will find much more durability.

Given 46% while driving a Mazda MX5 (185/60 R14 H) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Came fitted fairly fresh on the front of a used MX5 MK1 I bought last year and I thought I'd run them through to the end of their life (the rear had similar mileage Uniroyal RainSport 3s fitted).

- The wear level appears fairly low likely due to the hardness of the tyre compound. I'd expect mid to high 10k miles on a low power lightweight car with average driving.
- Decent straight line aquaplaning resistance, 70mph on motorways in the really wet without feeling too light on the steering

- In the dry they are below average on nearly all handling remarks - squealing every time they get the chance
- In the wet it is questionable whether I'd be better off just running on the rim; my wideboy track semi-slicks are grippier and they're made from materials that are inherently afraid of water
- When fitted to the front they would under-steer minutes before the rear at hilariously low speeds and when fitted to the rear the car would turn into a spinning top

I've never driven a car where the grip balance between the front and rear has been so hilariously different. I would strongly avoid these tyres if you live anywhere where the ground gets a little more than moist and strongly recommend that you spend that extra few quid getting a tried and tested tyre.

Latest Pace Toledo TL1000 Reviews

Given 70% while driving a Audi A2 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
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.

Given 79% while driving a Ford Fiesta 2009 titanium 1.4 (195/45 R16) on mostly motorways for 20,000 average miles
Have had them fitted to my diesel fiesta for 4 years. Do motorway miles and they wear really well. Normally get 25K per set.
Good value for what they are.

Given 37% while driving a Volkswagen Golf MK7 R 300 BHP (235/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
Tyres came with a set of alloys I bought, they had quite a lot of tread left on them so figured why not use them until they're worn down. Fine in the dry but show them some rain and they let go very easily, two lots of understeering at relatively slow speeds on roundabouts later and they're getting replaced. Will maybe keep them as back ups for the summer but definitely not for wet weather or winter driving.

Given 20% while driving a Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 CDTi SE sport (205/55 R16) on mostly town for 1,000 average miles
I would recommend avoiding this tyres. They come on a car that I bought and I did not know the brand. On the dry road they are just ok but whe it is raining they are dangerous. I have almost done a U turn while rounding a roundabout in the rain as the car lost control even at a low speed. I went to replace them and the garage told me these are one of the cheapest brands available. I'd recommend to spend a few £ more for something a little better.

Given 64% while driving a Peugeot 306 HDI (195/55 R15) on mostly country roads for 12,000 average miles
Found grip wet and dry to be good. Fairly quiet tyre too, only downside is they only lasted 12,000 miles and driven sensibly... so based on quick wear won't be buying again..

Given 49% while driving a BMW 520d (225/50 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 20,000 spirited miles
Avoid these tyres. They are absolutely awful in the wet, I’d go so far as to say unsafe. I cannot trust the car at all in the wet. I have these on the front, fitted by the previous owner. They still have around 6mm of tread left after >20k miles, so they are extremely durable but that’s only a good quality if they provide you with decent grip! I noted the speed these stopped gripping on a wet roundabout the other day: just over 20mph with a fairly gentle lateral load.
In fairness to them, the dry grip is not terrible, just a little spongey and feedback is fairly numb. Noise is reasonable but that might be more about the car than the tyre.
Despite having so much tread left, I will be replacing these soon for something that I can actually rely on in poor conditions - well worth £100+ a tyre in my view.

Vauxhall (225/45 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 10,500 spirited miles
Wet and dry grip are excellent for a budget tyre. Also very acceptable levels of road noise. However, on my Astra GTC the front pair are nearing replacement at just under 11000 miles, so not wearing well.
