Nissan almera gti Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Falken ZIEX ZE310 EcoRun given 81% (195-50-16-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 8900 spirited miles
Very impressive tyre. Most impressive is that I use it on a car whose only electronic on it is the ECU. No abs, no esp, no trc, no nothing... Almera N15 2.0Gti slightly modified outputting 161hp now, sending on front wheels 138.8 of them. A set of H&R and KYB excel Gs, merged with front and rear tower brace, along with front fender bars, trying to make things safer. Having in mind all the above written, I feel that "communication" between driver and tyres is a bit pricier than with all new era electronic parafernalia 2020+ cars. First of all, and I think my 50% value, is that these tyres are highly predictable. They do almost nothing without inform you first. You know some tenths of sec before when the tyres and which of them are to break traction point, through steering or full bucket seat I use forces. Dry braking performance (remember no ABS) is highly impressive and wheel blocking rarely occurs (F: 36psi/R: 33psi) on average+ tarmac. On slippery one, you must use your mind to brake optimally. On wet braking (grippy average+ tarmac) braking force is limited by aquaplaning resistance which I found to be a bit higher from average. Nothing special, just a safe wet braking. I don't know how do they name exactly this compound, but I found 310s very grippy with plenty of feedback on mountain b-roads. Being not exactly an everyday driver (I use my N15 mostly in weekends and mostly on b-roads) concerning this car, tread has been reduced by 2mm during first 4.000mi. But that's nothing special on my N15 gti, as I use it as mentioned above (an everyday Qashqai j11 1.7dci is my daily driven one). Over all 310s ecorun are pretty impressive during fast driving too, apart from a good comfort set. Their tread compound collaborates perfectly with a nonAbs etc car. Weel done Japs.

Writing about the Gislaved Ultra Speed 2 given 79% (195-50-16-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 4500 average miles
Having used the Ultra Speed 1 version, I 've noticed a significant improvement in dry handling, whereas the wet grip is just a step below its predecessor. Regarding my car is a Nissan Almera-Pulsar N15 with SR20DE (143hp) front wheel drive - no ABS. Ultra Speed's 2 side walls are pretty hard, providing a nice feel during aggressive driving. Another improvement is dry braking (remember, no ABS) where wheel locking is reduced significantly, having in mind that I live in Greece, where asphalt quality lacks of grip.
Compared to Nokian Line, Ultra Speed 2 informs way before sliding, driving aggressively on b-roads.
Only "con" is the tread wears quite faster than Nokian Line, but the same as Ultra Speed 1.
Tyre pressures: F/R 35/32, car weight: 1140kg.
I would buy it again, cause its price beats tread wear.

Writing about the Nexen N Blue ECO given 77% (195-50-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 average miles
These tyres had a lot of grip and were getting warm quickly. I don't remember having them to lose grip, ever. However I 've never pushed them to theit actual limit, but at least on every sharp turned I tried, they looked to have been adhered to road. Not entirely sure about wet performance. Good feedback from the road and comfort, tiny bit noisy but good at absorbing all these tiny high frequency road anomalies.
And the big BUT comes at this point. They wore out VERY quickly. The side corners and walls are not reinforced and started having cracks on the third of their total four years of life. One more note about side walls is that they don't have rim protection which can be a showstopper sometimes on dense cities.

Writing about the Bridgestone Adrenalin RE002 given 86% (205-45-16-V)
Driving on track for 5000 spirited miles
Really great tyre, nice follow up from the re050a.
Dry grip is really good, but missing some grip over the yokohama parada spec 2.
Wet grip is really good. They behave well on tracks.
You feel very good when oversteer/understeer is coming. They will scream a little bit. Buying them again for my dialy car.
The tyres are heavy compared to other brands.
They don't wear out fast, at the moment i drove 6000km on them and they look like new

Great tyre in dry. Leave your car at home when its wet.
i drove 7000km really sportive ( occasional track use) and i have now 1-2mm left on the tyre.

I dislike the softer sides of the tyre, thats why my next set of tyres are potenza re002

I agree with what others have said. If you have a light and powerful front wheel drive car - DO NOT BUY THESE.

In the dry, yes they are very grippy and predictable. In the wet, you are in serious trouble. Unless the tyre is unworn, the grip is pathetic. When the edges of the tyre start to wear (inevitable with enthusiastic cornering) its scary, if not lethal. you learn to drive in a whole new way just to compensate. In a car with no traction control, abs or any assists, you have to be seriously skilled to drive quickly in the damp / wet. they are like ice skates. Getting them off now as they are on the tread limiters, but i should have got them replaced them a while ago. as others have said - replace at 2/3 wear. They also wear down very quickly on a FWD car.
