Volkswagen Bora Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Kleber Quadraxer 2 given 50% (195-65-15-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 22000 average miles
Got these tyres about three and a half years ago and at first they were comfortable and quite good in dry conditions. In wet conditions they were a bit worse, but on ice they were awful - sliding at low speeds. After about 20000 miles they started to slide awfully on wet roads and just were not safe to drive anymore. Changed them after an accident - went into a corner at about 20-25 mph and the road was barely wet, but the car lost traction and swerved I into the curb. Drove home and ordered new tires - Vredenstein Quadrac which are supposedly great in wet conditions so I'll be doing a review on those tyres pretty soon too.

Writing about the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons given 91% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 spirited miles
Ran these for a year before selling the car. Day to day driving in all conditions, from motorways, towns and a good few miles on back country roads they were fine. Couldn't tell any difference between the Vectors and the summer tyres they replaced. Good wet handling, good aquaplaning, and you'd only really know they weren't a premium summer when pushing them hard and regularly.

In ice and snow they were brilliant. On the usual UK mix of untouched, first one out snow and the slushy, semi re-frozen mess they gripped and gripped. Handled hills in the snow without issue. The only time they lost grip was braking to a stop on 2 inches of ice - they took a bit longer than normal to stop. Short of studded tyres I wouldn't have expected instant braking in any winter tyre.

Overall a brilliant tyre to throw on and know you're covered in all conditions.

Writing about the BCT S800 given 47% (225-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 average miles
With these tyres there is no room for error. You must be a confident experianced driver to use these as they are terrible. Yes they are cheap but for an extra £10 a corner you could get far better and less dangerous. If the road is wet you can end up anywhere going through a roundabout or even a easy turning corner. I have had to correct the car many times with these tyres.

These tyres were fitted on my 1.9tdi bora when i bought them, I would highly recommand this tyre as it is hard wearing and grippy.

Writing about the Avon ZV5 given 44% (195-65-15-V)
Driving on mostly country roads for 5000 average miles
Not a bad tyre when first fitted, I put two on the front of my Bora to replace well worn budgets (previous owners fault).
Tyres have been very mediocre at best and do not inspire confidence, under breaking the car feels nervous and has a tendency to slide (brakes all new and perfect).... not good!!!!
Wear rate is appalling and uneven, at just over 5000 miles they are right down to the blocks, especially considering cheap rears have only lost approx 2mm in the same time period!
Definately will not be buying again as had no real strong points and cost far too much for poor preformance
