    Given 99% while driving a Ford Galaxy (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
    I have used many tyres and this one is surprisingly good in both wet and dry.
    I have full confidence in this tyre and I'll be buying again.

    Given 84% while driving a Vauxhall Insignia CDTI 160 (245/45 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 1,500 average miles
    From the moment I put them on the car and drove in the wet and only 2 degrees outside they fill you with real confidence great rain dispersion pattern good road holding even on the twisty roads my driving is mostly family type a cross between motorway a roads ect the feel like a premium tyre but the secret is they actually are!!! there just kept in the background as most people looking for the name not the performance trust me if considering a new brand give these a try I took 4 hours going through reviews and finally took the plunge... Glad I did.

    Given 29% while driving a Vauxhall combo van C 1700 1.3cdti (185/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
    Fitted to my works van. The tyre noise is significantly more, the grip in the wet and dry is poor, the van understeers horribly now. So glad my company paid to have these fitted!

    Given 63% while driving a Volvo S60 D5 (185) (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 10,000 spirited miles
    In normal driving these are fine, I have had to emergency brake 4 times for deer in the forest and every time they stopped very well and my car escaped unscathed. Wet performance isn't the best, but not what I would consider unsafe or below par. Aggressive driving and going round roundabouts quickly is a little bit worrying, admittedly only twice I've had it understeer and tramline, but it was still a little surprising still. Very, very rarely I've momentarily had wheel skids when planting my right foot, but I would expect that with diesel torque. On the rear these tyres were fine though.

    Given 50% while driving a Volvo V90 D4 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 300 spirited miles
    225/55/R17 tyres fitted by the dealer when I bought my 2017 Volvo V90 D4 Momentum. Car weights nearly 1.85 ton and got 190PS diesel engine, front wheel drive. These tyres often lose grip when I accelerate quickly even on dry road with the slightest imperfect surfaces. On wet road these do not give me confidence at all. Tyre noise is acceptable when they are new, no idea how it performs when wear down. I can't comment on the wear rate just yet but seems to lasts. They are soft tyres so the ride is comfortable I give you that. Other than this, there is not a single thing that I would recommand. I can't wait for these tyres to wear down so I can buy something else.
