MINI Clubman Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Falken ZIEX ZE310 EcoRun given 74% (205-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 26333 spirited miles
Grip and handling are astonishing but the tyre seems prone to damage. I have had a puncture in first year and a bulge in the second. Not sure what to make of this, since the tyres still endured and I have not had a sudden break.

Very hard compound. On track squealing on every corner, squealing on hard braking. It isn't an real semi slick. Cheap Federal 595 pro has much more dry grip.

I have a fairly long commute, and Scottish morning icy conditions this time of year aren’t great for summer rubber. After spending way too much time deciding which winter tyres to fit my mini with ended up going for the Yokohamas hoping they would hit the sweet spot in terms of price/quality tradeoff. So far I’ve done about a thousand motorway and b-road miles. Very happy with it. It is way better than the stock mini summer tyres in everything but dry grip (which you would expect). But even there the difference is smaller than I expected. Happy so far.

Driving on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
Just had these tires fitted on my 2005 Mini Cooper S Chilli, so far I’ve done about 100km, I’ll update the review once the tyres have been worn in. So far they seem OK, although I probably wouldn’t get them again on this car. Dry grip seems more than fine, a hell of a lot better than the old Pirelli Cinturato P7 runflats that were on the vehicle (although these tires were on their last legs when I bought the car), and seem to handle 170fwhp and 220nm of torque easily. So far I have not experienced any understeer when accelerating hard around a corner, which is fairly impressive in front wheel drive sports car. From what I have heard, wet grip is also more than adequate. Tires are 380 treadwear so should last for a decent amount of time. My problem with the tires are road feedback, are lack thereof. The steering feel has become noticeably lighter and less direct since installing these tires, I don’t seem to be getting any acceptable level of steering feedback which is somewhat disconcerting in a high performance vehicle. The car feels less connected to the road, although does have noticeably more grip than before, without having experienced the car on fresh tires previously, I can’t say if this is normal or not. The tires are not yet broken in, so I’ll have to see if my experience changes over time. So far I’m not super impressed. One merit of these tires is that road noise is absolutely non existent.

Replaced set of run-flats, greatly improved overall feedback, feel so much better.
OK a Mini Clubman drives like a roller skate but now these tyres have reduced the crash bang ride, it's almost like a normal car. Wet & dry grip inspires confidence, wear is very good for the time these Michelin cross climate have been on the clubman.

Car feels like suspension worn out and or has wear in ball joints!!! No grip in the wet, tyres are on the back of my car and I have experienced oversteer on roundabouts and when turning!!! Very dangerous tyre, like driving on slick when pouring down with rain!!

Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 average miles
Fitted these to my wifes Mini clubman S as I had previously had them fitted to my Audi RS4. They are an excellent tyre for the money and few tyres can match them in the wet. Road noise is also very good on them.

Like all tyres what works on one car doesn't necessarily mean it will work for all, but at the cost of these they are well worth going for. The rate of wear is a little high, but then its a soft compound that enables high grip levels and its this that leads to the wear rate.

You could spend twice as much on a Michelin PSS or just buy 2 sets of these IF you find they wear out quickly. I still find it staggering that people put wear above grip. Frankly I'd rather know that when I take a corner in the wet or dry, or when I hit the brakes hard (in an emergency for instance) that my tyres will not brake traction. These tyres will out perform alot of higher priced tyres, and will out perform alot of similarly priced tyres that have lower wear rates.

I will definitely buy these again.

cheap - I have or had these on a mini cooper S JCW - they are very good street tyres particularly for the money - bit noisey but safe and fun - but - they are no R spec tyre - on hill climb and circuit they sound like a hollywood sound effect, the car will not just to turn in with them no matter what pressure is run - I was blaming myself but a guy with a Toyota 86 and a guy with a golf gti both volunteered the same problems - I think the compound is maybe a bit hard so they will wear well - but for track and hillclimb I now use the Toyo R888-R

Balanced grip on dry and wet conditions.
Not the best confort but definitely some of the best wear/price ratio, i've ever had (experience with Conti Sport Contact 2-3 and Bridgestone RE050).
