while driving a
Toyota MK2 MR2 Turbo
(205/40 R17) on
a combination of roads
When I saw the reviews about this tyre I was quite shocked at how low their rating was, this is more than just an average tyre guys.
Iâ€™ve been running Enduro 916 Runways for about 6 years now on the back of my 1993 Toyota MR2 Turbo with 17â€ rims, my tyre size is 205/40 and they have worn incredibly well Iâ€™m now at the end of my second set of these and both sets covered just under 30 K miles each set which is quite an achievement for a rear wheel sports car but then again I donâ€™t drive like a loon, they have done me proud over the last 6 years and Iâ€™ve driven my little sports car in some of the hardest conditions known to man, they have performed absolutely brilliantly in all hardcore weather.
I went for this tyre because it carries the M+S label and I wanted all weather tyres because summer tyres on a rwd car is dodgy at the best of times even in the summer months and donâ€™t even go there when it comes to using summer tyres in the winter, lol lets put it this way when I first had my MR2 it came with summer tyres on and it taut me how to drive with skill in the winter haha it was like driving on a flipping ice rink, anyway getting back to what I was saying.. yea I wanted an all weather tyre that I wouldnâ€™t have to un-mount in the summer and the enduro seemed the perfect choice for my low budget, the only snag I would say might cause issues to others is they can be quite loud in the summer months but when you look at the tread pattern itâ€™s hardly surprising, I lived with it because Iâ€™m partially deaf lol but more importantly I know they were gripping the road well for which they did in all conditions.
One thing I would like to highlight about these are their ability in snow, I do a 60 miles trip to work and back every day and my rout is packed full of killer hills that would make Everest look like a speed bump! and in the winter this rout gets very dangerous and leaden with snow, ice and god knows what have you and I judge a tyre on how well it can perform on this route, I never once got stuck in 6 years, the car stormed through serious snow, itâ€™s quite funny when thereâ€™s me in a little rear wheel sports car going up serious hills and you have 4x4s stuck at the bottom haha Iâ€™ve had some looks as to say â€œHuuuhâ€ and yet my car sits quite low to the ground which is another plus for these tyres, so yea from my experience of these tyres I honestly cant say a bad word about them, Iâ€™m now changing back to my original Toyota 15â€ wheels as 17â€ are to hard a ride for me now, but smaller enduros are harder to find and as I mount my own tyres I canâ€™t seem to buy them online as well as the 17â€ ones so Iâ€™m fitting on 205/55 Toyo S953 all weather tyres so I wait and see how they perform against the Enduro'S
