while driving a
(225/45 R17) on
a combination of roads
Fitted on front axle only.
My driving style is absolutely normal.
On dry surface they are very good and quite good on wet as well, despite the tarmac of the roads where I live is not water draining at al.
Handling and steering are not very precise because the shoulder of the tyre is not stiff enough, despite it's XL rated. Even if inflated at max load pressure and XL, the tyre feels the weight of the car.
But the BIG downside is the noise. They are extremely noisy, even more than previous Riken that I replaced because old and noisy due to too hard and cracked compound.
I would by these Platin only if much less noisy, because I like the grip they have on tarmac.
