Tyres dated from 2013 to 27th week 2015. All have cracked really badly. Wet grip awful. Failed an mot bad. All 4 being replaced tomorrow. My mot man advised never to buy Michelin tyres as they crack. Last tyre purchased cost £83.50. Waste of money. Totally gutted. I run a merc on continentals. No problem whatsoever. My astra is getting well rated budget tyres tomorrow. All 4 for £210 inc fitting. Avoid Michelin at all inflated cost!

Just an update on my tyres after a trip to Cornwall, my overall advice is don't put these on the front of the car, the deflection ( bulge ) is too great this is a straight line tyre it does not like sweeping bends at all. It is a very comfy tyre its good in the wet its good in the dry but only at low speeds do not push this tyre it cant take it. Even my partner has commented are they low on pressure, they are on eco pressures at the mo 36psi and they still look low the sidewall just pushes outwards they are weak. The other tyres I have used are of a stiffer side wall and hold themselves on bends and I am not concerned but these on moderate fast roads are a nightmare on the front.

Tuff Tyre to review, its a very soft tyre compared to others very soft sidewall I am on 36psi on the front to decrease tyre deflection should be 31psi in summer and its still a sponge, dry cornering is noisy because of the tyre flexing straight line is fine also its a very comfy ride. In the wet its brill coz its a soft tyre and is not a worry at all. One thing because this tyre is not sold outside of the UK there are is no information on the sidewall apart from size and speed and load there is no maxx cold psi at all they are not obligated to put any information on the side wall. I spoke to Firestone and they said if you need to know anything about the psi loading you have to phone them to calculate axle weight load rate for them to tell you what air pressure you can inflate the tyre to and they will not tell you treadwear at all..I know its pants.

I will not buy this tyre again because i like to read the information I require from the sidewall, and not have to contact the manufacturer.

Excellent tires, very comfortable fitted to my Vauxhall 1.8 16v. Estate. Set of four from new - hardly any wear and road noise ! Excellent grip. They are now 3rd year on my car and the wear is consistent and they look exactly the same as on the day of purchase- still new ! It doesn't matter if you driving trough the snow or in a hot summer days, tires are doing great job and giving excellent performance because they are made of rubber and silica compound !!! Simply perfect tire without any doubt !
I personally would recommend these excellent tires
