Volvo V60 D3 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Roadstone Eurovis Sport 04 given 59% (235-40-18-)
Driving on mostly town for 15000 average miles
Purchased 4 of these for my Volvo V60 R Design and was surprised how queit they were. Pottering about they're fine and in the wet again, fine. If you push on when wet they do tend to lose grip easier than others I've had but on a family shuttle bus they're adequate. I have unfortunately had to remove them with 4mm tread because they have developed cracking between the tread. Would I buy again? Probably not, my next tyres are Vredestein Ultrac Satin ready to go on tomorrow so I'm yet to try.

Driving on mostly motorways for 19000 average miles
I've used a Avon's for years now and quality has certainly done downhill. I can't fault them for breaking and aquaplaning resistance is very high. The main issue is really strange wear pattern that has caused me having to change the tyres prematurely, I think that this might be down to them using a softer compound in the middle of the tyre however it is way too soft if it is the case. Yes I have covered a distance in his tires, however the outer bands still have 5 mm of trees left. And the tyres are anything but over inflated, and the wear has only occurred within the past 6 months If these tears were the same quality as years ago yes I would say buy them. However they certainly are cheaper. However still got the price tag.

Driving on mostly country roads for 5000 spirited miles
Initially an ok tyre. Now after 5k miles acceleration in wet weather my vehicle struggles to put the power down. I don’t think the tyres will last longer than 10k miles

Writing about the Pirelli CINTURATO P7 given 84% (235-45-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 29000 average miles
Factory fitted tyres from new. Comfortable tyre used for mostly motorway driving, but also A/B roads. Handle well under normal driving conditions both wet and dry. Have worn well, 29k miles on the front. Rear tyres still plenty of tread left.

Driving on mostly motorways for 0 average miles
Great tyres, and been used in the snow. Perform very well, and very impressed with the price and quality here. Used on a Volvo V60 & a SAAB 9-3. No problems at all, if a little noisy at times but not really a problem. Will look to buy same brand summer tyres also.

Very capable tyres. Nice handling. Liked them a lot. Except the comfort. Changed to Primacy 4, which not a miles ahead, but step better in terms of comfort. Smell from Michelin is better too.

Driving on mostly country roads for 6000 easy going miles
Awesome 4 season tyres, manufactures have improved the quality of these kind of tyres and they are almost similar to a winter tyre. I am impressed about grip on all scenarios, specially on wet roads like the ones that we have in luxembourg, nice comfort, almost no noise if you compare them with my old uniroyal winter tyres...

Driving on mostly country roads for 5000 easy going miles
Normal tyres in dry conditions, far from a top tyre but decents. With water/rain grip is not good at all.
Not recommended.

Writing about the Vredestein Ultrac Satin given 88% (235-40-18-)
Driving on mostly town for 1200 average miles
A the the moment i have the tires for about 2000km. I drive a Volvo v60 D3 AT 163hp.
I compare them to a Contisportcontact 5 and i have to say that the vredestein are much more comfortable and a much quiter.
As for the grip, the conti's on dry were better, i didn't have a situation that the tires loosed traction at start. The ultrac satin looses traction on start on high revs but only for a split of a second. In corners I can easliy feel the car and the grip is and road feed back is ok. Probably in very aggressive driving the tire will not be as good as HP tires.
On wet i can't see any diffrences, but i try to drive safe so i can't test it on the edge of loosing grip.
Fuel consumption is at the same level as the contisport5 (C vs F) and this is the only disappoitment of it.
As for the price, I bought 4 tires for 440€ (110€ per tire). In this price I couldn't find and alternative in mid range tires.
I'm very satisfied with this purchase and if I have to i would by them again.

Writing about the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance given 86% (235-40-18-W)
Driving on mostly motorways for 20000 average miles
My car was delivered to me with Conty 5 and those were great for spirited driving but way too stiff on b-roads, junctions, steps in the city etc. Moreover, not impressive on wet. I live in Switzerland and bulk of the mileage is a weekly commute of 400+ km motorway journey weekly, plus some transfers toward the seaside and mountain trips.
GY Efficient Grip has been a sensible solution to improve comfort with no compromise for normal use. I tried both on autobahn and indeed the Conty are better when speeding. Nonetheless, found that superior there only and pretty happy of the change: comfort, wear, noise. mpg all improved in this order.
