Driving on mostly motorways for 4000 spirited miles
Comfortable tyres with very good grip in dry and wet. The tyres are starting to undesteer more and more at 6000 km. And the wear is high, 2mm already gone. Have to change them at 15000 km.

Had original Yoka's on and felt dangerous on the motorway.... changed to the Uniroyal and hey presto all good. However I do have a very small vibration that I cant pin down, seems to get a bit better if I reballance every 12 months.

A very grippy tyre both in dry and wet. The steering feel is great with nice oversteer in dry. Low roll resistance too. Some weaknesses in aquaplaning. Very noisy tyre when the road surface is not totally smooth.

I am impressed! These tyres have got me through two winters and look like they are capable of another 2-3. Usually go on around October when temperatures are below 7 degree C. Off by May the following year. Very assuring in wet conditions. Especially when snow melts and becomes sludge. Handle mud quite well too. Ice grip is good. I find when the tyres have been driven a while then they grip even more. Same brand on the rear axle and these inspire confidence. You cannot get too excited with them as the traction light says hello. It’s nice to see the look on faces when they think a rear wheel drive car will struggle or stay on the drive. Run flat form doesn’t feel too jarring or noisy. Very good tyres and that’s coming from a tyre snob. Once scrubbed in these were pleasant and haven’t let me down.

These tyres are lethal!!!even in slightly rainy conditions , I found my car fishtailing under moderate acceleration in a straight line and I just managed to catch two rear end slides at junctions and roundabout. Seriously do not buy no matter how cheap . I have been driving for 50 years and have had many performance cars, so I have a fair idea how to drive them. I have never been as frightened in a car before. I immediately went to another dealer and got Michelin sr4s ...confidence back now.

Driving on a combination of roads for 8000 spirited miles
Well, 2.5 years later im back to finish my review.
I will keep it short and sweet, 1st set performed wonderfully in every area, as per the professional reviews, except wear. With spirited driving i managed 8k miles out of my rear set, not great when i was getting 10-12k from the conti cs5 s before them. I must be right about the less 'rubber on the road' that i initially noticed. I also found they wore heavily in the center despite correct tyre pressures being used.

I then ran a second set, and found that they lasted even less time, with arguably gentler driving.

I was all round impressed except the wear, and when paying £140+ per corner, this was a let down. Maybe tyre manufacturers are reaching the limits of performance possibility?

I have since fitted goodyear ays 3's to the rear. Worryingly they have even wider grooves, but seem to be lasting much longer than the ps4s. The wet traction is noticably worse (but not by much) but at nearly £40 a corner cheaper i would rather suffer this, save a lot of money and have the tyres last longer.

I have also just gone through front 225/40/18 PS4s. Again, the performance is unmatched, but they have worn quickly, notably more quickly than the PSS i had fitted before, and have suffered severe shoulder wear - they certainly felt like the sidewalls were not as stiff as previous tyres I've used. I have regularly checked the pressures are correct. Shame.

Although with shopping around the PS4's are only £10 a cormer more than the goodyear ays 3 and conti 6, im tempted to go for the contis next in the hope they wear better/last longer. Too many reviews say the ays 3's perform poorly in the wet braking/aquaplane test for me to go for those on the front. (Shame, the ays 2's were great!)

I got 12.5k out of the rear tyres fitted from the factory. Front tyres are over half way worn but still some left. Combination of comfort and sport mode, town and motorway driving. Great tyres but I wish they lasted longer cos for my wide wheels they cost a bomb! If I mash the throttle on a corner in the wet the back will step out but in the dry I cant get them to let go at all with 205bhp RWD - Mercedes C250 AMG Line.
