Volkswagen b5 1.8t Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Goodyear Vector 4Seasons Gen 3 given 83% (-65-15-)
Driving on for 15000 miles
I have fot it on an old VW Passat. In Winter it behave like an Winter Tire. The only slightly disadvantage in Winter is during fast cornering. Than it start to loose grip but in what a predictibly way - I am SO impressed. Predictibility is the key Word for Winter. In summer it behaves like a normal tire. The Best abilities are when temperature is near 0 Celsius, wonderfull and well holding corners tire then. Talking about milage, after whole one year of use in Middle-East Europe front tires tread looks like it was hard biten, (25k km) but it still holds the grip. I will rotate front to rear. I think that my set will hold 3 years, maybe 2 and a half. For me it is fine. I think that I may buy and swap tires for summer month and put back Goodyear gen. 3 for spring, autumn and winter. Great tire for 3seasons. I think summer overhits and fastens the wear.

Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 average miles
Strangely one tyre got worn out much quicker than the others, I thought the tracking was out but no.
It was just the tyre which appears to be softer than the other three.
Just out of the warranty period!

Writing about the Kleber DYNAXER HP2 given 49% (195-65-15-H)
Driving on mostly town for 10000 average miles
Easily and unevenly deforming. Too noisy and started losing grip at about 10k miles causing abs to kick in more often
