    I bought the tires two weeks after production. Brand new. I can not imagine how such piece of rubbish can be on the market at all. For it's money you can buy Kormoran which is great.

    Dear all, I am from Serbia, place where this tyre are actually made. They are absolutely the same compound, thread,whall.ext as Tigar, Orum,Riken and Kormoran. These tyres are made in Michelin factory in the city of Pirot. I wouldnt reccomand it for heavier cars and for cars with engines with 100+ hp. I have them on Octavia vrs tfsi. These tyres are not for racing if you drive normally they are ok. Wet grip is horible, on snow grip is sufficient. wear is ok.

    Given 67% while driving a BMW 323i 1997 (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
    This tyres came with car as winter setup (seller was mehanic and he just replaced it so DOT was fresh when car was bought). I was very sceptical but on wet you can't go sideways with this tyre, that's how much grip it has. :) Dry grip is ok but you don't have any feeling on steering wheel with them, also you can drive with confidence, especially RWD cars. Also never had problem with grip in snow (bare in mind that it's on RWD car). Negative side is noise, the faster you drive the noiser they get, so I wouldn't recommend them if you are mainly on motorways. Also, the wear is very high, so after two seasons they have about 5 mm tread depth (less than 10 000 km). If you mainly drive in city and country roads this is ideal. For the price, and everything else considering, I would recommend them, just depends what are you expecting from them (they are not premium and they are not perfect...).

    Served good on road in a family car, and the grip offroad is very good, same in the snow.

    Awful tyres. The car was skidding even at the lowest speeds when wet. Very rigid, really bad tyres. I can’t imagine how someone would pay anything for this quality. I wouldn’t accept these tyres for free.
