Hi Astra man back again, I had to let my Astra go this month as I had a lot of engine trouble that couldn't be cured so she had to go, but I am really gutted I couldn't take the tyres off and transplant them on to my newer Astra because its got bigger alloys so they had to go with the car.
All I can say is about the Newgens is they were brilliant top marks for the time I had them.. for wet and dry work they never missed a beat on bends and wet motorways and wide fast roundabouts not once did they every let the car down, they would have gone very well on mileage but I cant say to what now, at the time they had a lot of tread left front and rear and they kept their pressures well.
We still have them on the rear of my miss'es astra hatchback and exactly the same they are handling very well, I didn't put them on the fronts because I didn't want order again from Germany online as that's the only place I could find them and its a pain so Primacy 4's went on they're easier to get hold of. Newgens are not cheap tyres they cost the same as the Michelins on the 205/55r16 size. My review of these tyres is solely on my astra what they will be like on a different car I don't know.
I will continue to put my opinion on my new tyres on my new car here, I took off the ones that came with the car and got Kumho HS51 on 215/50r17 so far they are very good,,but then they are very new.
