Porsche 986 2.7 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Accelera PHI given 27% (265-45-18-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 1000 average miles
I had these tyres on the rear of my 2.7 Boxster when i bought it, And contrary to the smug reviewers re lack of talent plus I'll never understand owning a premium car and putting on budget tyres The back end coming round on you at 20 mph on a damp, not wet, but damp roundabout has nothing to do with talent, and all to do with shockingly bad & dangerous tyres, and not that great in the dry to be honest. There was no date code on these, so they could have been quite old, they still had 4mm tread, I believe they may have been updated now so I have no experience of this new compound, but safe to say, if you have these older tyres, get rid asap before they cause you an injury or worse. Now on trusty PS4's like my last car which I went though 3 sets with many miles of great grip in all weathers.

Bought these for my Porsche 986. What a flexible, compliant ride! Gives good feedback when pressing on. Dry B road grip is enchanting and confidence inspiring. They are a communicative tyre.
Going to test them in the wet tomorrow, but so far, no bad thoughts on them.
