(205/50 R16) on
mostly country roads
Better than expected!
I was in the market for used tyres as an emergency buy but the opportunity arised for these brandnew WinRun.
First 500Km i was a bit scared of what might happen since i tend to drive fast, curb faster and 99% of my daily driving is done on secondary roads with poor or dirty asphalt. Sometimes gravel, maybe on a weekly basis.
Right from the beginning i was surprised at how well they behaved while curbing, not only because of the great grip but the most surprising aspect was how robust the sidewalls are. They don't flex at all and the car behaves splendidly.
In the wet, since reviews were poor for this tyre i was a bit concerned but having them installed in December 2020 i still had time for a few weeks of below freezing temps and road ice. And of course, lots of rain!
They behaved quite splendidly and i'm not giving them a 10 for "Wet Grip" simply because i'm afraid someone will crash because of my positive review.
Î drive a 4 wheel drive car, symmetrical and i'm sure that makes a difference in the wet but i've had Bridgestones before and they were not even closely as good as the WinRuns.
Strange? Yeah, for me too.
They're now just above 3000 Km and are still behaving as they were when new.
Wear seems to be stable, i have them a bit over-inflated but the only thing i would complain is that they're noisy.
Anyway, not much of a problem for me because i drive listening to the car and the road. Radio is aalways off.
Would love to try Pirellis and will do so if i can afford them when the time comes.
If not, it'll be WinRun all over again.
