Honda Civic 1.5T Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Hankook Ventus Prime 4 given 89% (215-50-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 12500 spirited miles

I had left a review a few months back and want to share my updated mid term review.

1) the tyres still hold/handle like they did when new
2) they are still smoother then any competitor I have used
3) though smoother then competition they are somewhat stiffer when compared to brand new state, I did replace them with a new set to check and I can confirm the new set is about %20 smoother but please dont be fooled from this comment they definately are smoother then any competition period.

4) the only area I would give them 6-7 stars is wear, they arent your typical 60-70k km tyres like bridgestone or pirelli with hard compound,they are a much smoother compound and obviously wear faster, I would say you would probably get 30000km's out of a pair without signs of wear and by 40000km they would definatley need replacement, not bad but not great either however again compaired to the price and what it has to offer this is actually a very good result.

Driving on a combination of roads for 27650 spirited miles
From Malaysia here, this is my first time using performance tyre on a performance car (Honda Civic FC 1.5 TCP). For dry grip I would say no problem for speeding up to 205km/h. This tyre has a Z rating which means can go up to 240km/h safely. For wet grip, I am not brave enough to speed in the rain, the fastest I go in rain is 110-120km/h because I have bad experience or even trauma of Aquaplaning with my old car (Proton Saga 2011 made in Malaysia). Comfort aspect, I would say above average since this is a performance tyre, not an Economic or comfort tyre. Unfortunately, the downside/ disadvantage or weakness of this tyre is that It wears down pretty fast and lasted about 3 years only. Also, this model of tyre is relatively expensive in Malaysia (SouthEast Asia)

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 given 92% (235-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 spirited miles
I've only covered around a 1000 miles since fitting, all in perfectly dry conditions, so obviously very limited in some respects. I previously ran Michelin PS4's, which I was happy with bar two issues, first being comfort and the second and probably the more important, lack of fun, for want of a better word. Those tyres had grip in spades, but just no fun on turn in. I'd read this in a few reviews and opted for an extra load spec to see if sidewall flex was the reason, all it did was predictably ruin the ride quality.
Which brings me onto this Goodyear, a standard spec side wall, what a difference. Quieter by a huge margin and so much more comfortable, not a surprise I hear you say? The surprise is how these are so much better on turn in, way more up for some fun on B roads, heavy braking is also spot on. There's a little more lateral movement from these tyres at the rear, but that could be down to having 3 times the tread block height than the set that's just come off, but could also be the side wall, time will tell in that respect. At no point does the rear feel like it will slide out, but wet weather conditions might change this opinion. I'm currently more than happy with these Goodyears in the limited scenarios I've used them, I'm really looking forward to seeing how they perform in the wet. The cherry on the cake is a not insignificant saving over the Michelin as far as price goes.

Driving on mostly motorways for 2000 spirited miles
I'am using these tyres on a 2022 Civic Sedan 1.5 Turbo 182 unit, having used the OEM Bridgestone,Michelin Primacy +4 (+ version) I would like to say the following:

1) far and I mean it far more smoother then the bridgestone and in fact even smoother than the Michelin which aids to a better ride comfort.
2) noticeably lower tyre roar when compared to the bridgestone and unexpectedly even better at this when compared to the Michelin as well
3) Dry braking,handling cant find any weaknesses does it all very well
4) Wet handling is behind the Michelin's but not to a point to be worried about as is aquaplaning behaviour
5) wear, too early for me to judge but will perhaps return to this site to comment on that again.
6) some sites noted this tyre to have slightly higher road resistance when compared to the Michelins but I purposely noted many details (how long it drove at a certain speed in the same area and how long it took for it to come to a full stop as well as average fuel consumption etc) and noticed not even a bit of a difference (please note Michelins score extremely high in this field so that's a good thing :) )

overall definitely happy and will definitely buy this tyre again.

Driving on mostly motorways for 62000 easy going miles
Well past the 50K warranty and still going but it's about time to replace. They are 90% highway at a very easy going speed to get great MPG's. With consistent rotation/balance as well as alignments these tires have been great. Much better than the stock conti's. Much more quieter on the highway in the beginning. Around 20% tread they have become more noisy.

Writing about the Continental ContiMaxContact MC6 given 80% (215-50-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 1000 average miles
Drove it for about 1000 km, initial thought right after putting it on, wow this tire is stiff, kinda regret driving it on for about 100kms, but after 200kms, the tire feels more compliant to bumps. guessed that was the "break-in period". Grip level is excellent, no issues with tire squealing when taking fast highway on ramp exits. High speed stability is good too, no issues there. The best aspect is the noise level, significantly less compared to the Dunlop SP Sport Max 050+ that I had before and almost as good as the Continental Ultra Contact 6 on my other car. Also noticed that my fuel consumption is decreased too, normally would get 17kml to 18kml on my commute, but now I'm getting 18kml to 19kml with average of 120kmh. The only gripe, is wet performance, feels a bit "twitchy", no issues with grip but not a great feeling during high speeds around 110 to 120kmh. For sidewall design, IMO Continental has the second best sidewall design. Bought it because this is the second best option, was planning to get Michelin PS5 instead but the price difference is too huge almost 60% more doesn't justify putting it on a "daily commute car".

Factory set tyre comes with my Civic 2020, on 30,000 km tyre started to crack. But still manage to use till 60,000 km in very bad condition. Performance is good but can't last long.

Driving on mostly motorways for 16000 average miles
I have Continental ProContact tire on my 2022 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport Touring model. It is the standard tire from factory. My impression is they has quite a bit of road noise after 100 kph. It is more echo sound generated with the road surface. The grip on dry is okay. The sidewall is a bit soft, so during hard cornering it leans a bit. Have not tested in winter with ice and snow. It has the M+S rating. But I am not sure how it preforms.

A noisy tyre, but wet performance is very good, dry grip good. Wear rate is the best tyre tried ever.
