Top 3 Powertrac CityRacing Reviews

Given 39% while driving a Volkswagen Transporter (225/35 R20) on mostly motorways for 10,000 average miles
Started having an issue with judder from nearside front on a long trip to South coast, thought I had wheel balance issue.
Took it into a local garage on my return only to find huge bulges on the inside edge of tyre, could have been nasty at 70mph plus!!!
Bought this VW Transporter with these crappy Powertrac Cityracing tyres from a V.W. dealership in Leeds which I am a little surprised about.
Having tyres changed immediately and will try sending an invoice to the V.W. dealership to cover the cost.

Given 15% while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI MK7 (235/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 200 average miles
These came with a Golf GTI I bought from a non main dealer, suspect the dealer put them on there just to be able to sell the car. Oh my god, I have never experienced such a bad set of tyres. Even under very little throttle input the tyres would spin in the dry. Thankfully I didn't get to experience these tyres in the wet properly and I suspect these would be just dangerous. Avoid these and get a better brand.

Given 10% while driving a Volkswagen Transporter (255/35 R20) on mostly motorways for 10,000 easy going miles
I had the same issue as the reviewer above. All 4 tyres have large bubbles on the inside wall. My van dealer has gone back to the manufacturer and they have denied responsibility. I am now looking at taking this to legal as the tyres had only done 10k miles. Avoid this brand like the plague, they are a danger to road users.

Given 10% while driving a BMW X5 3.0d Sport (285/45 R19) on mostly motorways for 200 average miles
No option but to give bottom scores on everything for this tyre. I'm a small motor trader so I tend to see a fair few different brands and models of tyres come in, these were freshly fitted on an E53 X5 I bought in from auction.

On the drive back, the tyres felt fine - not particularly noisy, not the *worst* tyres I've ever driven on, but push the car a little and you could feel them give out pretty quickly.

However, on the journey back, I started to notice a grumble from the front left - which I assumed was a wheel bearing - until I then heard the same noise coming from the opposite corner. Got the car back to work, popped it onto the ramp, and got the joy of seeing first hand an almost continuous bulge having developed on two of the tyres, with small bulges already apparent on the other two - for context, these tyres were correctly inflated, less than a year old on DOT codes and the manufacturer paint markings were still just about visible - avoid these tyres like the plague as from reading reviews on here, this isn't the first instance of these Powertrac tyres doing something like this.

Given 44% while driving a Volkswagen Bora V5 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 7,000 average miles
This set of tires has been really poor performance and durability, specially on wet surfaces It was clear that they don't have the adequate design. They lasted not even 50% than others in the same range.

Given 14% while driving a Ford 05 Mondeo 185 (modded) diesel (225/35 R20) on mostly town for 5,000 miles
I recently bought a brand new transit custom with 20inch rims. I’m Totally aware that the sizes arnt ideal however after 5000 miles I had 2 blowouts on the fronts. Costing me over £700 to call out emergency tyre replacements. I don’t drive erratically or fast ( luckily ) and am disgusted with the situation. On both occasions I was driving on normal road surfaces and well under speed limits ( luckily ). I’ve since read reviews on the powertrac tyres and reviews are very concerning about this manufacturer. On both tyres the inner side wall has literally just popped. I’ve not even done 5000 miles yet. Stay away from this manufacturer. I’ve also contacted my van supplier and suggested they don’t fit their vehicles with this product. It turns out the tyres are relatively cheap but look good. Which is no hood to anybody if they randomly pop and breakdown with minimal use. Awful

Given 30% while driving a Skoda (235/45 R18) on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
Came on my car when purchased as a cheap front set to make it legal. From the off, the dry handling was bad and wet handling was even worse. Aquaplaning resistance was terrible and the braking performance dangerous. Do not trust the reviews on other websites, people buying cheap have low expectations. Replaced with Hankook Kinergy 4S2 all round and everything has improved immeasurably. Haven’t reviewed the wear as can’t give an accurate account, not on the car long enough.
