My mechanic put these on, because I forgot to remind him I prefer a mid range. They are the worst tyres I have ever had. My Kia 1.5 diesel puts down a lot of power in first, and these tyres cannot cope when pulling away unless you are going straight. At roundabouts and t junctions they are prone to spinning even in the dry, and it is impossible to avoid that from happening in the wet. Twice I have almost lost control on a roundabout. luckily at low speed. I would steer clear of these, they are unsafe.

Good allround tyre would suit low powered petrol cars, as dont feel too good on a diesel , wet roads forget about it seems like you cant have power and turning at same time.
They do good on snow and ice though thats why i think its a good tire for the money. Been on the car for a year and still about 70% tread left .potholes havnt affected the tires yet either which surprises me given the amount of craters on the road network.
