SEAT Ibiza FR TDi Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Nexen N Fera SU4 given 79% (205-40-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 11000 spirited miles
Absolute top for dry grip and handling, but wear... Inner edge worn after 16k km, it is also a thing of too much negative camber I run on, but overall, they are at 60% after 16 000 km.. N7000 were better I would say.

Driving on mostly country roads for 10000 average miles
A good mid range tyre, bought for my Ibiza TDI FR with 200bhp and the grip is good in both dry and wet. However when pushed its hard to find the moment of progressive grip loss, you either have lots of grip or none. Wear is acceptable to very good, they have lasted 10k on the fronts so far and have 4mm left so id expect another 5k before being replaced. Main reason i bought these was to reduce tyre noise which admittedly did help compared to Bridgestones, but im have just found quieter ones with theHankook ventus prime and trying those next.

Writing about the Barum Bravuris 3HM given 84% (205-45-16-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 6000 spirited miles
I've done moderate power diesel hatchbacks for a while. I know how hard it is to find decent tyre for this type of a car, not going crazy price wise.

Running those tyres on Ibiza Fr TDI with upped power and torque is excellent. Light FWD car with more than 350Nm of torque and short chassis, gives a good test for any tyre.
Barum 3HM give almost unchanged strong grip in wet and dry. Hard to push them past the limit and you can gradually feel it right before they go. They wear very slowly and once balanced at fitting just starting to go off, after a lot of uneven roads and pot holes. Road noise is normal, nothing special. Overall Best price-quality tyre you can get in low profile 16s for less than £65/tyre fitted (East Midlands area, thanks National Tyres).

Satisfactory. Got this set as I had to replace a whole set for a used hot hatch I bought. Light fast hatchback cars are not very well insulated so the tyre noise gets through. These tyres are loud.

Performance is good and I recommend these on more heavier well insulated cars (Volvo, BMW or Merc). I will be buying a little more expensive but very quiet set of Vredersteins for my car next time. But looking at the way this set is wearing its going to be a long way away.

Writing about the Vredestein Sportrac 5 given 100% (215-45-16-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 3000 spirited miles
Fantastic tyre, excellent grip, great feedback and pretty quiet. Far better than the Continental Premium Contacts they replaced, which made the car a bit numb. These really bring the car to life and and massively improve confidence and momentum in the bends. Fuel economy is also good so far, as is wear. Perfect for keen drivers in quick FWD cars.
