Writing about the Michelin Energy Saver given 76% (195-55-16-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 36500 easy going miles
I bought a four years old car with only 10.000 km and the original tyres. I travel 50.000 km since then and the tyres thread still have few millimwters. I believe the rubber become old and hard (8 y.o.), infact the adherence and traction in wet is now very poor. My driving style is mostly quiet, except very very few times on mountain roads. I appreciate the confort in term of noise and the ability to absorb road roughness. The fuel consumption was also very low, but also due to my driving style.

Swapped from Michelin pilot sport 4 and the potency sports are completely different animal. Could notice the difference straight away.

Driving on mostly country roads for 8000 spirited miles
Have had 2 set of these tyres on my Peugeot 208 gti with 208bhp standard I struggled to find a decent tyre for good grip, handling and value until I was recommended them, I find them incredible for the price cannot fault them apart from premature wear but u have to sacrifice the wear for the grip and handling (obviously) they are far superior tyre compared to the pilot sport 3 that come factory fitted wich fell rather roapy and unsteady once half woren at 136 quid a tyre compared to 74 quid a tyre it's devanti all day long for me 👍

Writing about the Continental UltraContact UC6 given NAN% (205-55-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 18000 miles
This tyre is very well-balanced in terms of dry/wet performance and also overall comfort. I have used both Michelin PS4 and Primacy 4 tires in my car, so i could confidently say the UC6 outperforms the Primacy 4 in almost all aspects except for tyre wear which i couldn't comment for now as it still has about 5mm thread depth left after 30k KM. (Primacy 4 lasted for 42k KM). In term of tire performance, for comparison purposes I set PS4 as the benchmark (100%), i would rate UC6 in relative to PS4 as following:- Dry - 85/100 Wet - 80/100 Handling - 80/100 However, this tyre has a relatively softer side wall so it's definitely more comfortable and the noise level is lower compared to PS4. Taking into consideration of UC6 is not a high performance tyre, so generally im happy with this UC6 and it's much cheaper than the Michelins, definitely recommended!

Writing about the Pirelli Winter Sottozero 3 given 93% (205-45-17-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8000 average miles
Bought these for my late 2015 208 GTI, and they are absolutely amazing, they are good in the dry and not too bad in the wet, in the snow they are utterly amazing in fact the 208 in the last 2 bouts of heavy snow the south of England had this Feb (2019) and last year in March (2018) the car was just drove and stopped like it was just on a wet road... it had more grip than my 4x4 Grand Cherokee with proper Cooper AT3 chunky tyres! I would absolutely recommend them and will be buying a set for our F11 BMW 528i for winter.

About average in dry, but very bad, even dangerous in wet especially in lower temperatures.
Good on wear.

Writing about the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 given 86% (205-55-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 average miles
Great tyre with reasonable price. Excellent performance in the dry and wet, very comfortable and silent as well. However, it has a noticeable body roll perhaps due to the tyre profile. Have it fitted for 30k+ km and still clocking. Could last for 45k km with my driving style which is 60% motorway and the rest 40% are combination of city with stop and go traffic drives. Very satisfied overall!

Writing about the Momo Outrun M3 given 87% (205-55-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 spirited miles
Been driving these momo outrun 3 for 16000km. I would say it's outstanding with this price considering the price range falls under budget tyre.
Dry grip is solid and wet grip almost on par, steering feedback is not too bad compared to Bridsgetone RE002 as re002 has a very hard sidewall. Thus, it's more comfortable than the re002 and very silent on most road surface. Wear is super good, i barely see any wear compared to when they were new.
Highly recommended if you're looking for tyre with reasonable price with good performance yet still have comfort in it.

Writing about the Linglong Green Max given 77% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 average miles
My Peugeot 207 was fitted with a brand new set of greenmaxes when i bought it last year. I've now done just under 20000miles and they are now reaching the point when the fronts need replacing. These Tyres are excellent and i wouldnt hesitate to buy another set.
