Given 91% while driving a Kia Motors Cerato Forte (215/50 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Very good dry & wet grip, Low road noise on any road surfaces. Low rolling resistance while driving; mileage improved slightly. The overall ride comfort is fantastic. These tyres are amazing. Highly recommended.

the nice thing about them its that they are really quiet, good grip in wet and dry the only drawback is that they are not intended for hard cornering (tracks) but for long drives in which you an enjoy yourself and relax

Given 80% while driving a Hyundai I10 (165/60 R14) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
I bought these tyres for my Hyundai i10 around 2 years and am pleased with the dry handling, however these tyres can be a little unpredictable in wet or rain. I paid £200 for a set of 4 fitted and balanced, I probably would consider a better tyre but no complaints about the wear rate or value for money.

Very good on dry roads, very low noise and very good wear rate but very bad on wet roads (C rating on wet) that's why i won't buy them again.

Given 84% while driving a Opel Corsa (165/70 R13) on mostly country roads for 7,000 average miles
Tyres are pretty reliable on dry surfaces. Little weaker on wet but it can also be to the suspension. Overall very peased with the tire and would recomend it. Because i don't have the car to drive super aggressive but i tried to come to that stage and they stuck to road really good.
Hope this helps.

I bought a used car(proton Inspira)which has these on and there's quite a lot of tread left about 60% but after driving it around for 6 month the performance started to get worse and worse and eventually one day when i was driving through the around corner the back slip and have absolutely no grip and i hit the divider

Given 97% while driving a SEAT Seat Mii (165/70 R14) on mostly country roads for 2 spirited miles
These tyres replaced Michelin Cross Climate tyres and I must say what a brilliant tyre this is, I was sceptical being a midrange brand I've never used before however after purchasing two I noticed it completely transformed my car. I had endless alignment issues after replacing ball joints, tie rods and even having a hunter wheel alignment the car still wouldn't go in a straight line however as soon as I removed the Michelin tyres and replaced them with this Toyo Nanoenergy 3 the alignment issues vanished. The car drives wonderful no worries about wet or dry grip it gives the car a very solid feel and most importantly I would definitely trust them 100% These tyres can't be beaten especially on price, only £54 each compared to £80 each on my old Michelin tyres. I would definitely recommend these tyres to anyone who's after safe, fun, solid performing tyres. Well done Toyo

Been using for 4k KM. The tyres are quite good with 420 Treadwear, don't expect too much because it is a Economy tyre. The tyres are good in wet, no major problem with aquaplaning, good feedback in dry or wet conditions. This tyre is better than some tyre with the same price range. Tyre noise is acceptable. I will repeat using this tyre again.

Wearing rate is impressive even without rotation. Handling fair. I drive in tropical conditions roads which is hard and hot averaging 40 to 50 degrees Celsius road temperature therefore comfort and noise are poor in these conditions

Given 89% while driving a Vauxhall Combo 1.3 CDTI (185/65 R15 T) on mostly motorways for 32,000 average miles
I'm a same day delivery driver, mainly motorways and A-roads, and was looking for a sure-footed tyre with slow wear rates. The reviews for these seemed pretty impressive, and on the whole they have proved to be correct. This is an excellent tyre - I have the 92T XL versions as I do sometimes carry up to 400Kg pallets in the van. The tyres inspire confidence in driving spiritedly where warranted (B-road blasts mainly) and I've not heard one tyre squeal once in the 32K they've been on. I've never felt in perilous danger in wet conditions, even where standing water engulfs the M1 and M40 from time to time. For sure, there may have been a slight wobble in the really deep stuff, but nothing that resulted in my life flashing before my eyes. Due to the nature of my role, I am constantly on the road and sadly did not get a chance to rotate the wheels. This has left me with 4mm of tread on the front, whilst a barely untouched 7mm on the rears. I have noticed the road noise has worsened the further the tread wears down on the fronts. I managed to grab a spare set of steelies, so have swapped the rears with some low-tread Michelin Duragrips with a view to swapping the whole lot over to Cross Climate + now the colder months are here. The good news is I now have a back up set (the former rears at 7mm, and the Michelin Efficiency Grips on the other two wheels at 6mm of tread) so hopefully won't have to buy any new tyres for a while yet. Extremely comforting tyres at cruising speeds (for me that's the maximum speed limit for any road I'm on), although the compounds is quite soft. A screw went straight through one of the rears, but easily plugged by friendly local indie tyre place. On the whole, thoroughly recommended - cheap too at around £50 a corner.
