SEAT Ibiza Cupra 20VT Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Bridgestone Potenza Sport given 81% (215-40-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 15000 spirited miles
This is an end of life review.

The Bridgestone Potenza Sport is an excellent sporty tire. It has good grip in the dry and resists the hot 35C summers here in Greece well. They are neutral at the limit, allowing me to control the rotation of the car with the accelerator if needed. Steering feedback is above average (though my Ibiza with its electrohydraulic rack is not the most communicative platform. Braking distance is excellent both on dry and wet surfaces. Wet grip is decent for the low tread the tires come from the factory, and handling balance there has a tiny hint of oversteer, but its so little that even the ESP doesn't activate.

Comfort and noise take a step back, but I don't really care about such trivial things. Tire life is also shorter compared to the PS4, but the upsides make up for it. Lastly, the price is very reasonable at around 420€/set. I'll fit them again next month when it's time to change tires.

Driving on mostly town for 12000 average miles
I do 95% eco driving and the other 5% is very sporty in a mountain pass.
The eco driving is great, very low rolling resistance and low noise as well. In the wet this tire is awesome.
As for the sporty side, and I mean taking the car to its max, very good but not perfect because after 10 kilometers the tire starts to overheat.

Driving on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
A fantastic tyre so much better than the pirelli p zero Nero where the p zero was noisy hard riding and rubbish in the wet and didn't last long.the hankooks are just amazing so quiet i am getting hardly any tyre noise at well past normal speeds they are much more comfortable as well my car is lowered but these make the ride so much better and the grip is brilliant wet or dry and they are supposed to wear better than uni rs3 (result) I would recommend these tyres to anyone who wants a quiet grippy tyre that's cheaper than the competition

Writing about the Hankook Ventus V12 evo k110 given 84% (245-35-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 spirited miles
I bought these tyres originally out of necessity, due to the not so popular tyre size that I wanted to try.
After I got rid of the factory alloy wheels with 205/40/17, I have installed the WORK CR-KAi 17x8 and in the 8 inches width I wanted to have a tyre that took advantage of my wheels!

The first time I have put the K110 I was pleasantly surprised by their overall performance! Very good at dry, very good at wet and they have also seen some track use during the summer.

Overall it is an excellent value for money tire with good mileage and unless you drive like a hooligan, this tyre will never leave you down!

So now I am on my second set of k110 and I confirmed my original conclusions. It is an excellent and honest all around summer tyre, nothing more, nothing less!

Writing about the Uniroyal RainSport 3 given 91% (215-45-17-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5000 spirited miles
I now run these on both my cars and can say they have been perfect over the winter so far. I had these on one of my previous car and ever since tell myself these are the best tyres around.
The grip in the wet is god like comparing to any other tyre in the wet, nothing compares, its not like you are even driving on a wet surface!
The Dry grip is just as good, but they do get hot quickly, so spanking it around a track will cause them to start melting away!
They don't last a huge amount of time and grip does start go downhill with the tread, but don't let this put you off.
Overall, awesome tyes, currently have bought 10 in total now.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 given 67% (195-45-16-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 30 spirited miles
These tyres grip amazingly well in both wet and dry. You get a lot of feedback from the road and they have lasted forever - outlasted my Toyo T1-Rs twice.. however, they are rock solid and you feel every bump. When they started to wear they made a lot of road noise. They're not available "new" any more - some garages still stock them, but i'd avoid if you want any comfort while driving at all.

I'd go for the Toyo T1-Rs over these as they handle a bit better in the dry, softer so a smoother ride and less noisey, but they do wear a bit quicker.

Writing about the Pirelli PZero Nero given 46% (205-40-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30 spirited miles
Awful tyre... Designed for 30+ mediteranean heat and sticky Italian/Spanish roads.
They have a very hard compound as a result and so while their wear rate is good they only grip in the height of summer when the heat loosens up the compound.

They also track terribly and bump steer leads me to constantly correct the steering on UK roads. The off the line grip is atrocious regardless of whether its dry or not and they give up when exiting corners. They're braking performance is comparative to an average Tyre.

i will never go near these again, and they will be replaced with Kumho's KU31 for less than half the price for a much much better tyre

Writing about the Yokohama Parada Spec 2 given 69% (205-40-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8500 spirited miles
These tyres really are a night and day tyre.

Seat Ibiza cupra running approx 230bhp

In the dry they are incredible no matter how much I throw at these tyres they stick to the road. I can easily take corners putting on the power extremely early and I have trusted them fully in every corner.

However in the wet these tyres are abysmal rarely am I amble to pull away without wheel spinning and looking like a complete idiot. On hill starts they are even worse with literally having to wheel spin to get any forward movement. Under steer is shocking in all corners and if I do boot it the lack of traction is horrific. It got to the point where I disliked driving my car in the wet due to my lack of confidence I these tyres.

Wear rate is pretty impressive having done about 8/9 thousand miles there is still plenty of tread left (Over 5mm) and the tyre walls really do respond well to my chemical boys tyre gel.

The ride is rather ‘crashy’ but that said I am on coilovers running 17s on a 40 profile so I can't complain.

Overall I realise these tyres are not developed for the UK climate. Takes a lot to warm them up but when they are it's also embarrassing how good they are compared to their wet performance. Would I buy again? no not in England. A warm climate with lower precipitation? Yes, defiantly.

Writing about the Pirelli PZero Nero given 76% (205-40-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 27000 average miles
Really good dry grip as long as you reach desirable temperature. Wet grip is not the best I've experienced, however it shouldn't worry you so much as the car does not lose contact with the road unless driver becomes really careless. In snowy conditions, forget it. You need to be really careful.
Amazingly durable sidewalls. After 43.000 klm, all 4 tires did not show any damage, even when climbing on pavements to park.
Performance in dry grip was still high at the end.
Decided to try Toyo's T1R, but would definitily buy P Zero's again!
