I bought passat 2004 diesel with those tires.
Thread almost 90%.

Review based on March wether, temp. around 8 degrees and damp/wet road.
Can't rate wear so 5 points.

Even when driving very easy and focused on fuel economy they miss grip.
On the large roundbound with speed limit 60 kmph can go only 30 kmph.
And rear of car is skidding a little bit.

Another roads with speed limit 80 kmph: can go max 65-70km, sharper bends 40-50km. That was in light drizzle and wipers set to approx. 7 second interval...

Motorway: accelerating to 140 kmph during overtaking of truck is the limit in the same conditions.

Braking distance is not worst in straight line, but trying that in bend is suicide.

If you go 100kmph on motorway and try to move steering wheel left and right by 3-5cm then you can feel understeer. Like driving on snow...

Last car (Ford Mondeo Estate 1.8 petrol) fitted with Continental Premium Contact 5 could go even faster tran are speed limits in medium rain.
No problem to go 140 on motorway during heavy rain.

Changing to Continentals rated wet grip A, fuel economy C this week.
