Ford 05 Mondeo 185 (modded) diesel Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Michelin CrossClimate 2 given 94% (225-50-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 11500 average miles
Great touring tyre with very predictable handling characteristics in all weather conditions. The quietest tyre I've ever had with the exception of a few different cement surfaces.

Had them fitted in my Mondeo mk4 and vw polo. They’re incredibly good on wet and muddy surfaces also grip very well on dry. Can’t complain about the noise or fuel efficiency they’re are all round good tyres that last long. I would very highly recommend! Personally I think those tyres are one of the best on the market

I haven't had chance to test them in the snow or ice, however in the cold/rain they grip well enough for the price. very progressive feel, with plenty of feedback, and again decent enough grip concidering the price. only thing is they are wearing slightly quicker than i would expect, and they are slightly noiser - especially when it's cold.

This new Goodyear series “Comfortdrive” is the best tire I have ever owned, and I was a tire dealer for over 20 years. Smooth, quiet ride. Very nice road manners and handling. First day we had flooded roads and great traction with standing water on the road. A measurable difference from the OEM Michelin latitude

Really good UHP All season tyre, replaced Michelin Pilot All Season 3s and these feel more sporty. They're not amazing in the snow compared to a winter tyre but seem better than the Michelins I've taken off. Very happy. Highly recommended and will be buying again.

Driving on mostly town for 4000 spirited miles
Update: we had some winter weather this month and the tyres were very good on snow and ice as well as on wet and dry roads. I think it's a premium tyre performance for 2/3 price. Very good value for money!

Driving on mostly town for 3000 average miles
I bought a second hand Ford Bantam pickup. It was fitted with brand new Goodride PR28 tyres. No complaints till the rainy season started. Handling is not so bad but when you brake the car just slides. First time it happened I thought there was oil on the road but when it happened for the third time I realized that it is the tyres. Just no grip when you brake. After sliding sideways into an intersection I decided to get other tyres. Only 5000 km on them but will not take chances. Will never buy goodride again.

Driving on mostly country roads for 14000 average miles
I replaced a set of Goodyear's up front on my 1liter turbo Ecosport after 32000km. 30 000km later and the Rapids are halfway. I am very happy. Just replaced the back tyres with 2 Rapids.

Writing about the Autogrip P308 given 37% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
I've given these a fairly low score but, for the money they are not bad. They were fitted to a st155 mondeo estate so a pretty heavy and fairly torquey car, and in the cold wet they were downright alarming- understeer in corners was abrupt and wild, and they would spin up on mild power. Care needed pretty much all the time. But in the dry they were pretty competent and miles better than the random no-names that you'll often find on a used car at the low end of the market You could definitely do worse, and it'd easy to see them as good value. But IMO you should spend a bit more if you possibly can. The difference in price between these and say a Kumho Ecsta, once you take into account fitting, is really very small compared to the difference in performance. I don't think any tyre this cheap is really a good option but, if you have to, then they're worth considering- they will do the job, but they will stop your car from working very well. (and it's absolutely baffling to me that pretty much all used Subaru WRXs seem to have at least one of these on it...)

Driving on a combination of roads for 42000 average miles
I'm going to review this tyre on 2 cars having mentioned previously that they were fitted to my '58 Mondeo 2.0 Tdci and my wifes '58 Focus 1.6 Tdci though my scores are based on the 215/55/16. Firstly my Mondeo: I made my initial review about 4yrs ago having bought the first set for my Mondeo and enjoyed them so much, I bought a second set (215/22/16) 2 yrs ago in August 2018 and almost 2 yrs down the line they are still on the go. Even if the rear tyres are almost on the limit (having swapped front to back every 6 months) and done pretty much 42k miles on them as I do 20k miles per year. I've been through every weather condition and never had any issues. Driving mainly on A roads to and from work I'm not a racing driver and I'm not Miss Daisy but do have a blow out (not the tyres...) every now and then. Don't we all!!.. I have to say they have been great on the Mondy and would buy again with my ratings reflecting so. I'm now looking at getting a third set.. :) Secondly, the Focus: The first set (205/55/16) has just seen out its life after nearly 4 yrs... I have to say they have performed performed almost as well as the above except in wear. It may be 4 yrs but the wife does probably 7k miles per year with varied road travel but mainly shorter trips. So, they have only done around 25K miles, which isn't bad but I would have expected better wear. So does this show that a different car wears in different ways or is it the driving road conditions. Sadly, I didn't buy again for the Focus as I took up an offer through Tyre Shopper on an alternative and saved quite a few ££'s, so time will tell on these new ones. However, the Three A P606 gets my thumbs up..

With tyre's that have only done 12000mls on my wife's eco sport fitted on her new car when delivered, the service plan has just failed them at MOT . The reason given was tread to side wall crazing on all tyre's. Shorley they should last longer than this. Any idears ?
