Volkswagen Golf 7 GTI PP DSG Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Triangle SporteX TH201 given 49% (235-35-19-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
Had a set on a Mk7 Golf GTI for a short period of time and can categorically say they are one of the worst tyres I've ever driven on. Dry grip is acceptable but wet grip is an absolute joke. Road noise is noticeable and road feedback is dull. Switched to a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S and they immediately transformed the car. If you actually care about driving and the safety of your vehicle, I wouldn't recommend cheaping out on a set of Triangles.

These tyres are nasty. Poor in the dry and borderline dangerous in the wet. Noisey, provide minimal feedback and when they slide there is next to no warning or progression. They came on a new Golf Mk7 GTI and then a MK8 GTI. Removed from both cars once the engines were bedded in (circa 1,000 miles) and replaced with Pilot Sport tyres instead. Why VW fit this garbage on a ‘sporty’ car I have no idea. Presumably they get a good deal on a 12 year old design from Bridgestone.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 given 63% (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30000 spirited miles
Probably one of the best tires you can buy if you need some amount of snow and cold weather ability but still want excellent sporty performance. The dry/wet performance is about 80% of what you'd get with a summer tire, but you can run it in the shoulder seasons or in light winter weather. My main complaints are that the steering response isn't as good as the previous AS3+. The right quality is pretty average for an all season tire, but its OK. All around great options.

Writing about the Pirelli CINTURATO P1 given 43% (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
Used to have potenzas s001 which were not the best tyres, but enough for my driving style.. when i bought these i knew they were going to lack the dynamic driving, but i never thought they would put the car all over the place on highway speed or even at slow speed. No grip at all on wet surface, only thing good is wear tread. Changed to PS5 to recover the usability of my GTI.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport 5 given 91% (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Having used potenza's s001 and pirelli cinturato p1 plus, i have to say these are by far the best in every aspect. The most shocking difference apart from dry and wet grip is the comfort of the ride. I can drive around with 38/40 psi without having to pay a visit to the dentist. The handling may not be as dynamic as the best of best tyres, but its way more than what the other two offered. After having used pirellis for 5k kms i can say i have recovered the dynamic handling of a GTI.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 given 83% (-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8600 spirited miles
Dry grip is exceptional for an all season tire, while wet grip still exceeds my expectations. Hydroplaning has been virtually nonexistent since this tire has been fitted. Even more surprising are the wear characteristics. I've done a few days of light tracking on these tires and it still looks as if I could get another 20,000 miles out of them. While I have not yet experienced their capabilities in the winter, given their superior performance across the board when compared against the tires I had previously, I maintain a high level of confidence.

Writing about the Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 given 80% (235-35-19-)
Driving on mostly town for 1000 spirited miles
Bought these tyres based on this websites reviews and videos on Youtube. Fitted approx 1,000km ago to my Mk7 Golf GTI Performance to replace the original Dunlop Sport Maxx tyres which were past their used by date. Tyres are too new to comment on wear and wet weather (has only rained once when I have been driving) but in the dry I am very happy with the grip and feedback from these tyres. The tyres are quiet and grippy, and with a treadwear of 320 they should give a good life/grip balance. They also have an attractive sidewall and tread pattern.

Driving on mostly country roads for 500 spirited miles
These tyres were already on my MK7 Golf GTI which has around 320bhp thanks to a few upgrades, but these tyres are not capable of handling the increased power. Straight-line acceleration in any gear up to 3rd and sometimes even 4th causes the traction control light to come on and taking dry corners I would usually do at 60mph in my much slower Scirocco causes a lot of squeal on these tyres at a tame 50mph in the Golf. These tyres are also incredibly loud. Considering my Scirocco before (workhorse) had a mix of budget tyres on it including some Avons which cracked within 12 months of having them and I thought they were noisy, I was looking forward to a quieter, more luxurious drive on these premium tyres in the Golf, but unfortunately I've been quite disappointed. The tyres are just too hard for fast road use, and are not a good solution for putting the power down on a mapped GTI, though I'm sure as a result the mileage would be great. Unfortunately I'm not getting on with them so will be changing to something grippier when I change wheels in the next few weeks.

Original equipment but in my view a poor choice. Some of the poorest wet weather performance I have experienced in 47 years of driving

Do not be a tyre snob . I have had Contis , Michelin and so forth on my cars and these Falkens are just as good and a lot cheaper . On the road you will not tell the difference . They are in the top five in most tyre reviews and only a small percentage adrift the winners .Try them you will not be disappointed

Writing about the Nexen N Fera SU1 given 84% (225-35-19-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Surprisingly these tires are very good. I was doubting them before i bought them, but after the sales man convinced me, i went for them. Plus they are a great deal cheaper than the Pirrellis that i had on my car. I have only had these tires for a day, but i am impressed already. immediately after the tires were fitted on i took the car out for a drive (dry road conditions) and performance of these tires is really good. Honestly there is no difference between these tires and the Pirelli, although i feel like the Nfera SU1 handles better in wet. Later at night it rained very hard, so i took the car out again to test the tires and i could comfortably do 180km/h - 190km/h in heavy heavy rain. Quite impressive !!
