BMW 435d Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Hankook Winter I cept iZ2 W616 given 86% (225-45-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
Very nice feeling driving long distances. Comfort and steadiness is excellent. Superb grip on snow, a bit edgy when on the limit on ice. Priceworthy tyres without a doubt!

Writing about the Yokohama BluEarth 4S AW21 given 95% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2000 easy going miles
They have been excellent over the winter months, they feel very solid on seriously wet roads and motorways and when it has been icy there hasn’t been any slip or loss of traction when accelerating or braking. No use in snowy conditions or warm hot weather as yet. Very glad I swapped my Primacy 3’s, nice in the dry but to me they didn’t feel solid particularly on wet motorways, these are a vast improvement in the wet.

Writing about the Bridgestone Potenza Sport given 99% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
Just tried the new Potenza Sport, a great leap forward compared to the past. stable tire safe and very sensitive to change of direction. kept at the impressive limit, a little noisy but average. very robust and communicative side, less flexible than ps4s, this is an advantage in sporty driving. Compared to the S001 wider footprint, better road holding. for now I am very satisfied.

Writing about the Jinyu YU63 given 31% (255-35-19-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 7000 easy going miles
BEWARE New set of Jinyu YU63's came with the used car (BMW 435d x-drive - 2 years old at purchase). As the tyres were new, I ran with them, knowing they were not a top brand (potentially a big mistake). No problems for 7000miles, or so I thought, but at the next annual service/MoT both rear tyres were condemned; one with inner face sidewall failure - bulging, not visible from outside - and one with delamination of tread - again hard to spot during routine care and maintenance. The car now has a full set of new boots - the BMW recommended Bridgestone Potenza S001's - they are excellent. I run Conti Sport Contact on all my other cars and the Bridgestones are as good or better. I will never have a cheap set of tyre's again. Not Recommended - potential disaster waiting to happen - imagine a complete side wall failure at 70 on the motorway. Cheap tyres are a false economy.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 given 89% (255-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8000 spirited miles
A good improvement on the AS3, great grip in dry and wet. Car only goes sideways when forced. Road noise is quiet, Been great in snow too. Can't wait to get them on a track. Car is 390bhp and the tyres handle it well though an awd system. Can't fault them. Definitely buy again

Writing about the Falken Azenis FK453 Runflat given 74% (225-40-19-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 18000 spirited miles
For a mid-range brand it is not a bad tyre. Surprised to read some of the other reviews about longevity as mine were down to 3.6 MM after 18,000 of spirited driving.

Dry handling is above average. Dry braking is average. Wet grip is average. Wet braking average. Lateral grip in the wet is where these are a let down. For an ‘A’ rated wet tyre you would expect better characteristics in the wet. Fast corners or sweeping bends in the wet are not fully compatible with this tyre.

Road feedback is okay. Handling could be better. It’s not a bad run flat for the money though. Given it’s price and it’s above average performance in most areas it’s value no doubt. It can be a bit hard or noisy at times but the progression makes up for that.

I would be interested in trying the 510 RFT version next based on my average experience with this. However, I may be swayed back to Michellin or Good Year depending on what offers are on at the time.

Writing about the Goodride SA37 given 48% (275-35-20-)
Driving on mostly town for 1000 spirited miles
Had these on just the fronts.
Went up in width and my first impressions was amazing.
Then came to wet driving and they are incredibly bad. you just cant tell when its about to slip or anything of the sort
Its either full grip in a corner or nothing.
Road noise did increase as well vs other budget tyers I had before
They are pretty good at smoothing out potholes ect consiering they are only a 35 wall tyre
For a cheap tyre in the dry they are pretty good.
Just terrible in the rain from my experience
If you dont care about performance and just want a crusing tyre these would be pretty good other than the increase in road noise
Again will state that only front tyers with these

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 given 80% (225-40-19-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 200 average miles
Early days as I've only had these on for a few trips, replacing Bridgestone S001 RFT tyres, and I certainly don't push my tyres enough to know where the limits are. However, turn in seems quite good.
However, on the Comfort front, these tyres are noticeably quieter than the Bridgestone S001 RFT tyres. These I changed away from with ~5mm left on them, as they had a definite drone even at low speed (~25mph) let alone on National Speed Limited roads.
I've also measured the cabin noise over the same sections of road at 30 and 60 mph and can see the improvement compared to previous.
They also take rough roads and sleeping policemen in their stride, absorbing sharp edges well.
All of this is perhaps unsurprising as they did replace RunFlats of course.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S given 93% (255-30-20-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 300 spirited miles
Bought the car a year ago with Accelera PHI tyres. They were fine in the dry but frightening in the wet. Now on Michelin pilot sport 4s. Just buy them.....night and day.
