    I have used Star Performer summer tyres for years now, and I'm very happy with them, so I decided to try their winter tyres. Unfortunately, chalk and cheese. While they are perfectly good in snow, able to drive up surprising hills with no problem, they are a nightmare in the wet. Even from new, with maximum tread, I found them sliding on wet roads and the ESP kicking in whenever I put the foot down. I ended up using these until they were done, all the while having to take great care on wet roads, and then I switched to Continentals and all was well. So not recommended at all due to their very poor adhesion in the wet.

    I must say I bought them new for 45euro each, and not for normal street driving, but to have fun with my rwd is200. So i put 2 of them in the back, but they are much more grippy than I expected. Dry handling is very good, very hard to make the lose traction with the 155hp the is200 has, very stable. Also the wet grip is incredibly more than I expected, they perform as much as makes no difference as a premium tire. To lose traction you have to kick the clutch. Also snow and ice performance is more than average, I made a roadtrip to the mountains during a snowstorm and they performed very good, managed to get moving under all conditions, and they feel safe on any surface. I was expecting some shitty unsafe, sliding around with these chinesse cheap tires, but they managed to wow me. In the front I run some Nokian wrd3 from 2016, so i can say that they are almost the same level of grip over all surfaces.
