Opel Astra H GTC

Very comfortable and quiet tyre also very affordable. Definitely show their best on wet roads but on dry, for my taste, too soft rubber. You better have good working ABS on your car when it comes to a bit harder braking.
I had shorter braking distance with my prehistoric Hankook Ventus S1 evo2.
Handling is average and don't expect that car will go exactly where you want them to go every time.
Take your time and get to know these after fitting them on a car, don't try to drive them like your previous set or if you tend to drive a bit "sharper".
After not even 1000 miles front tyres looks like disaster, I will easily give them 10k hard driving based just on visual inspection. Rear tyres are almost like new and I hope will do 5k with these set.
Definitely not recommend this tyre if you live in a country with hot climate because you will watch them vanishing.
Don't want to say it's a bad tyre in general but for warm climate and hot asphalt they are big NO!
I'm sure they are more suitable and give their best on a colder places with lots of rain.
Definitely will not make same mistake again and buy another set of these.

Fitted to an MX5 NB / MK2, these replaced Michelin Pilot Sports.
Plenty of grip but soft sidewalls means the car flobbles about like a big lass on a trampoline.
Pity, as these were good tyres on a different car. (E36 323 touring.)
Will take these off and put the Michelins back on in the summer.

BMW 3 series

Pretty disapointed with this tyre. The wear rate is atrocius and after 12000 miles they where close to the wear indicators and I drive slow and easy.
It is a touring tyre and not a sports tyre so it is confortable but also a bit noisy due to the pattern design. The sidewalls are very soft so the steering is not very precise.
Grip in the wet is good especially aquaplaning resistance however wet handling is nothing special compared with sporty Michelins I had before. I have to say price/quality is not good in the end because wear is high.

Rover 45

Had many types of rainsport before and I have some old uniroyal rain tyres on the front of my car so I thought a pair of these on the back would be a good idea.

Unfortunately these come with a ridiculously soft sidewall, so the back end of the car wallows around like the tyres are really soft, this does not inspire confidence at higher speeds, it's so bad a gust of wind can make the rear end feel like it's sliding at 70mph

But once the tyres have rolled over the grip is really good, but, the grip is not worth the sacrifice of an incredibly unstable car.

Wouldn't recomend in this size to anyone, might be better as a lower profile.
