Ford Focus Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 given 96% (205-60-16-H)
Driving on mostly town for 1000 spirited miles
Very good in the dry and completely exceptional in wet conditions. It's as if they come alive it the worst wet conditions... imagine driving through standing water and feeling as assured when in the dry. The comfort levels on road humps were a big improvement over the Continental ECO Contact 5 which the 2019 Focus MK4 came with. This new rubber could be the benchmark for Premium Touring tyres.

Half the price of the premium tire but NOT half the performance. Dry grip is pretty good after running in tires.

Writing about the Continental ExtremeContact DW given 51% (205-55-16-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20 spirited miles
Upside: the grip is outstanding. Both dry and wet. Downside: 1- Sidewalls are weak. Hit a pothole and you'll need a new tyre. 2- Sidewalls are extra soft. Feels like you have a way softer suspension. Not a good feeling for sporty tyres. I used to inflate a few psi over to get the handling ok. 3- wear very fast. 20k km on the rear axle of an fwd and it was on twi. Conclusion: you get a fair amount of grip, but the subjective handling is shit. And very low km/$. Wouldn't recommend.

Poor braking distance, lots of understeer, dangerous in the wet

Writing about the Falken ZE912 given 49% (215-45-17-)
Driving on mostly town for 30000 spirited miles
Fitted a set of these tyres in a Ford Focus 2.0 N/A with not a lot power, but these tyres were terrible back in 2009. The standard goodyear eagle nct5 with 15" wheels had better grip better and more progressive than 17" wheels and 215/45 R17 Falken Ziex 912 tyres. The Falken 912 on the dry will understeer easily and not very progressively, very abrupt (almost terminal understeer into a wooden pole) and very slippery on the wet too. These Falkens 912 were dangerous, probably similar to cheap Chinese or Indonesian brands. At least, those Indonesian brands (Achilles or GT Radial) have great dry grip when new, but wouldn't last long with cracking, uneven wear, etc. Used the tyres for 30K before selling them with plenty of tread left. Got Kumho KU31 which was better everywhere and understeer progressively

Writing about the Michelin Primacy 4 given 67% (235-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
In January 2020 I did get a new Focus ST Line (182 BHP) fitted OEM with these tires. For some reason Ford has switched from Pilot Sport3 to Primacy4 on all new ST-Lines with 18" rims. I know the PS3's very well from my 2 Peugeot's 308 GT's I had before the Focus. Perfect tires with the only disadvantage they wear faster. But back to the Primacy4. From start on I had vibrations on all conditions at nearly all speed (tires cold and warm, warm lesser vibrations but still there). The wheels where balanced and the car drove straight perfectly, so that could not be the reason. After approx. 3000 miles the garage switched under garanty the tires to Continental PreniumContact6. The difference could be feld immediately, apart from a little more road noise with the Conti's and a little bit less feedback, esp. turn in, the Conti's where much more comfortablee (no vibrations) and much more grip also (inner wheel didn't slip anymore in same conditions). I think that the combination of hard wheel suspension bushes of the Focus im combination with the longtidunal laminated profile of the Primacy4 its results in more vibrations, the reason why none of the Focusses I did testdrive (they had all PS3) had the same problem. I did testdrive a Peugeot 208 II with 16 inch rims and this car had also the same vibrations but lesser due to a more comfortable suspension set up. For me never again Primacy4 tires.
