Renault Clio 182 Trophy Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Exalto given 89% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 100000 spirited miles
Depending on what you're looking for these are the best all round tyre money can buy.

Have driven 100k miles on them (clio 182)and they outlast the discs! Approx 25k+ out of the fronts and 50k+ out of the rears. In the dry on a warm/hot day they'll match anything the competition can throw at them and will not overheat. In the wet on the road they perform well enough but it's not a soft compound so they will let go (kept up with Evo's and Wrx through the twisty's around Nurburg - they were running wet race tyres).

On a cold very wet track in winter they just won't heat up so if that's what you want them for then they're not for you.
If you do most of your driving on the road and don't want to open your wallet every 5k to 10k miles then you really won't find better.

Sadly they're getting hard to get hold of.

ps - they screech like buggery pushing it hard in the dry, so be warned, any undesirables will hear you coming.

Writing about the Kenda KAISER KR20 given 26% (205-45-16-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 2000 spirited miles
A very poor tyre. These were fitted to the front of my Clio 182 Trophy. I tolerated them for a while but moved them to the back to replace the worn Contis there when a Conti got a puncture. I fit Dunlop Sportmaxs to the front and like a similar review about a Civic Type R, the back now wants to overtake the front when turning in at speed. I'll be replacing these despite there being plenty of life in them. Also having changed on to the Dunlops the ride has improved and the feel and progressiveness is vastly better. Also the tyre roar is hugely muted. My impression is the Kendas are made of a very hard rubber which results in a crashy, noisy ride with little road feel or grip. Avoid unless you're just selling the car and then let it be on your conscience!
