SEAT Leon FR 2.0 TFSI Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta PS71 given 77% (225-40-18-)
Driving on mostly town for 1000 average miles
These tyres were already fitted when I bought my car and are brand new (front axle). They are perfectly adequate and can easily handle the 190hp of my Seat Leon. Traction is good, as is handling, and comfort seems to be quite good too. These are a sporty tyre, and the car does feel quite agile and well connected to the road. The sidewalls even look pretty good I think. I can reccomend these, especially at their low price point, but will likely go with a more premium offering when the time comes to replace them.

Writing about the Michelin Primacy 4 given 67% (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 40000 average miles
I bought Primacy 4 just after when i bought my Seat which had Potenza tires. They was horrible and Michelin at that time (4 years ago) was still better. However after 4 years and 40 000 km later i can say that Primacy 4 are at most average. Ok, hadling is good or even very good, but comfort is totally crap. Tires are loudly basicly since 40km/h and trasfer vibration from road to car. I could live with that but the worst is loudnes of those tires. I swap front with rear tires side by side - nothing help. I know that Seat is loud car but my freind has same rims in his Seat and have Goodyear and it's much more quiet. Today even i went to tire shop to check whats going on and specialist suspects many things but probably i will change tires for Bridgestone or Goodyear. i realize that profil 40 is not the most comfortable but come one.

I honestly don't recomend. Gum is to hard for comfortable riding in Seat Leon and with time getting louder.

very good tyre in wet and dry road!! Previous dunlop sport maxx rt 2 is very poor in feedback, this tyre is Fastanstic in road feedback. Low noisy, good confort, good wear....only fuel saving is poor

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport given 87% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2500 spirited miles
These tyres were on the back of my Seat Leon FR TFSI when I bought it and after 2500 mainly wet miles they are very good. Dry grip and wet grip is excellent with plenty of feedback. When pushed hard they start to drift slightly but it is progressive with plenty of feel as to what the tyre is doing. In fairness I've not pushed them too far in the wet as the Kumho Ecsta XTs on the front offer very little grip, but they feel fine especially in comparison.
Road noise is acceptable, they drive well and don't tend to follow changes in road surface and the only real criticism would be their tendency to squirm under heavy braking.
Tyres had about 6mm tread when I got the car and they only seem to have used about 1mm in 2500 miles, will probably put them on the front when the front XTs wear out and buy a new set for the rear.

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta XT KU37 given 69% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 2500 spirited miles
These tyres were on the front of my Seat Leon FR TFSI when I bought it and after 2500 miles mainly in the wet I'm looking forward to changing them. Not a bad tyre in the dry but do scrabble for grip under hard acceleration and cornering. In the wet the tyres lose grip far too easily and fail to inspire any real confidence especially when cornering even on just damp roads.
On the plus side road noise is minimal, they drive well, don't suffer badly from changes in road surface and at least when they start to lose grip it is progressive.
The wear seems average for the use and is probably made worse by the lack of grip.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 given 87% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 10000 spirited miles
Fitted all 4 on a SEAT LEON FR (200hp) a year ago. At first i was rather cautious as it wat my 1st time with goodyears ever. Progressively i started pushing the tyres even more and more and they've proved to be far better than conti sport contact 3 and p zero nero's and michelin pilot sport 3 i had before. Braking, cornering turn in, they are great on the dry and equally on the wet but they always need some warmup. I recommend them and i would put them on again.

Writing about the Pirelli P ZERO ROSSO Asimmetrico given 59% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 spirited miles
Worst "premium" tyres I've ever used.

Fitted as standard to my Leon FR

Horrible wheelspin and wheel bounce pulling out of junctions and even accelerating in 2nd gear. Very poor in the wet. Wet cornering is dreadful, you can feel the tyres start to slide on roundabouts at relatively low speeds

Would definitely not recommend. I'm replacing the fronts with Goodyear Eagle F1 well before they are worn out.

Writing about the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 given 93% (225-45-17-H)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20000 spirited miles
This is great example of how the contemporary tyres are improved over the previous generation in every area, left aside feedback. Replacing the SportContact3, a tyre that really suited my driving style and my car's dynamic characteristics, was a gamble between the brand new SportContact5 and the F1 that paid off at the end, especially considering the noticeable improvement over the wear, at least 20% over the conti. Probably the only reason for grumbling is the limited amound of feedback, a deliberate choice in order to offer high level of comfort.

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta KU39 given 83% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 300 spirited miles
Well, I have had these tyres on for about 300 miles so far and they are just getting scrubbed in. I suspect the reviewer below in the Fabia has not worn the tyres in enough at 100 miles. For the first 300 miles mine were pretty average, but now all the mould release agents etc have come off and the tyres are worn in a little I'm impressed.
Dry grip is on a par with the Pirelli P zero Rosso I had on before, but wet grip is far far better. Noise is down compared to the Pirelli and they seem a more comfortable tyre. The car certainly feels more planted on the road than previous
In regards for value for money, they are amazing at £83 a corner fitted from black circles, compared to £120 a corner for the Pzeros.
