    Very good tyre with new pattern design. Handles very well on dry and wet asphalt, especially for its price, and has decent handling on snow. I am very satisfied with this buy and this tyre can match power and torque of my highly tuned TDI. This tyre offer very good value for its performance.

    Dry grip is very good. Wet grip is good, very predictable and you always know where the limit is. There is a part of road with short wooden bridge- in the rain at 10°C my summer 2017 Conti completely looses lateral grip, but Sava sticks firmly. Grip on the snow and ice is exceptional - it goes and goes. Trye wear is low. For the price exceptional tyre.

    Given 86% while driving a Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2018 (225/40 R18) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
    Probably best value tyres i have ever had. They are not the most sporty or responsive tyre, you definitely feel "lack of road feel" and lightness through the rim but since it is a winter tyre and i drive mostly in town with moderate speeds in winter months, i couldn't care less. Amazing grip and traction on snow, very good and in the dry and wet, it doesn't fall apart in the wet like some other budget winter tyres. I had nearly done 15000km's with these and wear is pretty decent as well. They don't so far off from a premium winter tyre for half the price. Definitely buy again.

    Tyres performed excelent on all types of roads. The dry grip is superior and on wet,snow and ice also superior. Comfort is also really good, they are not too noisy. Overall the best tyre for the that amount of money and can definetly compete with other premium tyres like Mich Conty ext.

    Awesome handling in snow. For the price best tire you can buy. Its not best on dry and high speed, but on snow great!

    Second winter on these tyres. Very good for the price, solid when dry, better than most competitors when wet, haven't really had a chance to test it in real snow, but at what little there was they were good. Feedback is good, better than expected for a winter tyre. It's comfortable, a bit noisy but the frequency of the noise is not anoying for me, it relatively high piched hum. I recommend this tyre and I will buy it again.

    Given 83% while driving a Skoda Fabia 1.2 (165/70 R14) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
    Excellent Value. is the easiest way I can describe these tyres. They do perform above their price class, quite a bit. There are really not many complaints I can make, maybe they are not the sportiest tyre in the cold dry but they are not meant to be that kind of tyre anyway. When I switched to these tyres my car had older set of kelbers (if I remember correctly) from the previous owner, but I had 2 close calls on snowy roads so I swapped to SAVA mid winter, and the difference was night and day. They even grip better in wet then my summer set of Matador Hectorra 3s. I highly recommend these tyres as viable and safe budget winter tyre.

    very nice tyre according to the price.
    Positive: Low fuel consumption, dry and snow grip, price.
    Negative: Bad comfort. (maybe caused xl version)

    Very good tire especially for the price. My family buys sava and continental tires, continental is good but in the winter conditions especially in the ice sava beats anything. I reccommend this tire to anyone that has a lot of ice or snow where they live:)

    These tyres are excellent. The grip is good on both surfaces, dry and wet. I have tested them on a race track for a safe driving lessons (abs braking good, dry cornering good, wet cornerning good, no front side wheels understeering, no back side wheels understeering) . I have made about 10.000 km in the winter and there is no sing of wear, tyres are the same as new.
    They are not noisy tires. I recommend them.

    Excellent tyres. Very gripy, no noticable increase of noise level - and I drive mostly with radio switched off. Not have a chance to drive in deep snow yet, but so far - very satisfied.

    Noise...OMG NOISE! Have them on Audi A4 and they make some iritating whistle like noise on nice smooth it especialy iritating on wet roads. The better quality of road,the worst sound they make. On rough asphalt they are nice and quiet but on smooth roads its unbearable. This is second yeer i have them and wear is not notisable. They are ok on wet roads,nothing special,and more than ok snow i would say good. Fuel consuption is increased 5mpg. Only problem for me is that stupid noise they make,its not normal noise like other winter tyres make compared to summer tyres.
