Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 given 87% (225-40-18-)
Driving on mostly town for 15000 average miles
Bought these to replace a set of Dunlop SportMaxx RT and the PS4s were immediately superior in every way. I had them on the FN2 Civic Type R for over 4 years and approx 15,000 miles. They lasted really well IMO and the only reason for change was the PS4s had started cracking due to their age. I’m now on Michelin PS5s for over a year and approx 5k miles and I much prefer the PS4s.
Dry grip was always excellent and was progressive on the limit even during the winter months. Wet grip was also very good and gave me confidence. Noise; I will not say too much as I had the car stripped out for a significant time so my opinion wouldn’t be fair. Road feedback was fine, on the odd occasion I would push it on a corner I could feel how much grip I had and what the tyre was doing. I found the longevity brilliant and after trying out the PS5s I would rather swap the claimed longevity of the new model tyre for what I consider to be better wet and dry grip in the PS4.

Driving on mostly country roads for 10 miles
Once warmed up, very good levels of grip in the dry. On par with the Assymetric 5s I had on before, if not better. Not as good in the wet however, also wear alot quicker than the Goodyears. Wouldn't recommend for a day to day car, but if you've got a weekend car you take out on the occasional country road blast. If not, Goodyears are 99% as good in the dry, but much better in the wet.

Quite a bit better than the PS4’s I had previously! Great feedback and grip and only done a couple of thousand miles, but very to happy they are the best wearing tyres in the Bild test.

Writing about the Bridgestone Potenza Sport given 74% (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20 spirited miles
On wet road this tyre is brilliant. Very good on braking and handling. On the dry condition is very good also but my opinion the previous S001 was far better. The wear is high for potenza series also. I had 20.000 kilometres and the wear is obvious on the outer thead of the tyre. I drive most cornering roads and i want to get maximum performance. The tyre is comfortable for bridgestone potenza series. Also a compare with old s001 the Race are more comfortable.
If to buy again. hmm, i don't know yet. i need more kilometres but in general i expected something better from new Potenza's

Driving on mostly country roads for 0 spirited miles
On my 2017 civic type r these were very good , good handling and felt very fast rolling and quick sporty steering. Perfect sporty tyre on warm roads and preferred them to Michelin ps4s , but tread is going down quite quick now after 3 months of driving 5x a week. Want to try new Bridgestone Potenza Sport to compare as similar price but I think these hankooks will be better than them.

Driving on a combination of roads for 1600 spirited miles
Drive for some 1,600 miles, daily driven and spirit. Very good grip in dry, responsive in hard curves. In wet the performance is precise and some aquaplane but manageable, it's a 275 wide. The sound road is normal for performance tire with this trade ware. Still testing

Driving on a combination of roads for 12 spirited miles
After Potenza s001 I choosed the newest production of Bridgestone POTENZA SPORT. So, this tire looks very good choice for some one how have high expectations from his car. Very good both for dry and wet conditions, perfect handling to the limits, typical POTENZA'S hard side's with very good rim protection. The bad thing is the wear of this tire. At this point yes POTENZA SPORT doesn't looks so good like the previus s001's and RE050a's. After 12.000 kilometres SPORT'S looks bit tyred. General yes, i would buy it again

Writing about the Landsail LS588 UHP given 69% (245-30-20-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 spirited miles
The shop put around 41psi at the rear, so my first drive can be considered really scary. They felt unstable at the beginning the high psi did triggered the TPMS. Had to stop and deflate them to 33psi. At 300km breaking in, I still don't feel safe when entering corners so I pump another 2psi to give it stiffer feeling for the sidewall. I can now put a bit more throttle at the corners without the scary sliding/unstable feeling. Now at 1000km, a little improvement during cornering, however straight line pull is not stable. The rear is unstable and the car feels like floating at high speed. At 170kmh, you can feel like the tires are too soft and flexing too much even with straight line pull. Still manageable but not really as good as the Conti. I'm not expecting the LS588 to perform like OEM Conti Sport Contact 6, but they are night and day difference. However, at normal driving speed they can be quite comfortable. Low noise. Just that they are not really reliable/safe for spirited driving.

Driving on a combination of roads for 20 spirited miles
This OEM Tyre for my '18 Type R has sensational grip and response that take full advantage of the brilliant chassis. That said, they are a nail magnet, easily get out of alignment after a few potholes or bumps in the road, and while less than some alternatives are still dear. The ride and comfort level are quite good for a 30 sidewall, and they have not let me down in the rain. The good news? They are so rewarding to push hard you'll want to buy them again. The bad news? You will get to do that much sooner than you planned.

Writing about the Vredestein Wintrac Pro given 76% (235-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 22000 easy going miles
Life cycle end review of the Wintrac Pro. 4th season, about 35000km, maybe a bit more, various countries, road conditions and driving styles, mostly smooth, relaxed touring. High speed stability is great. Only tested it once, during the 3rd season. Speed rating W, so up to 270km/h(168mph), got it up to 262km/h without any problems. Handling is good, not great, but it's predictable and you feel, when it starts to wash out. Strange rubbing noise, when they do though. Rubber got noticably harder over the 4 years. Stones quickly break parts of the thread out or squishes them down permanently, leaving holes in the otherwise prestine rubber blocks. Smaller stones get stuck easily and cause for quite some noise, especially in corners. Dry grip is great, once the tyres are warm. When cold, grip levels are mediocre, fine for city driving. Sporty driving is not recommended until they have at least some warmth in them. Curvy b roads make for a good place to warm them up. Wet grip is similar to dry grip. Slightly difficult, when greasy. The tyres will grip after washing out a bit, making the turn in a bit jerky at slightly higher speeds or when still cold. Aquaplaning is hardly an issue, once the tyres have warmed up, at least at speeds, that are common on roads. 120km/h in pouring rain is doable. There are enough grip reserves, but any higher than that is not recommended, except for short amounts of time to overtake the truck, that sprays your wind screen. Snow grip is astonishingly good, only a few problems there. Up to 100km/h, the tyres are predictable in a straight line, and safe to change lanes, when there is slush and snow between lanes. Braking is good, especially at lower speeds. Rear wheels might break out in corners, easy to do lift of oversteer in a FWD car. Snow grip didn't get much worse over the 4 seasons, than it was in the beginning. Tyres prefer deep, fresh snow, rather than flattened one from other drivers. Ice grip is not good. Even thin layers of ice on the road can quickly lead to the front washing out, even in low speeds. Definitely not recommended. If the ice is rough, the rubber grips a bit better, but still makes for an unpleasent ride. Ice driving requires very gentle stearing input and thinking at least 100m ahead. Comfort and tyre noise is good, gets splightly worse over time, but not unbearibly so. Mostly due to the rubber becoming harder and the thread blocks developing holes from stones, that squished and deformed them permanently. Thread wear is absolutely fantastic. 35000km and still 6mm of thread left on all 4 tyres. Mostly gentle, economic driving, very few hard accelerations or braking. Greasy, none road surfaces are astonishingly hardly a problem. Went on a ferry to Sweden, where other tyres struggled for grip, the Wintrac Pro made it up the damp ramps easily. Sweden's rough road surface didn't inpact the thread wear at all, as it seems. Measured the thread depth before and after the 2500km trip, no difference measurable. Noise levels rose a bit, naturally. Steering was not impacted though. 22° decline on wet cobble stone was also no problem. Very little slip, if any. For middle European winter conditions, I'd give them an 8/10. Best for climates with little ice and either lots of fresh snow or hardly any snow. Winter climates with lots of rain are absolutely no problem whatsoever. Sporty driving is also no problem, but you have to be aware of understeer and sudden gains of grip. Excelent for long road trips.
