Mostly Country Roads for 10,000 Spirited miles

Jeep Grand Cherokee

These are great tyres. Can’t believe how little I paid for these compared to “premium” brands.
I genuinely can’t find fault with them.

A Combination of Roads for 10,000 Average miles

Volvo S60 D5 R Design

Bought 4 of these for S60 D4 VOLVO.All in under £200 just over a year ago.
They replaced used set of PZEROs that were on there. And I tell you what, I cant spot the difference.....

Wet and dry handling is just as good. Never felt scared of as if they are going to give way or break away.
Wear also looks good for a 10,000m after a year.

Only one problem was the front nearside developed a puncture in the sidewall which was the only downside to these.

Brand snobbery has gone a long way.

BMW M3 e46

These tyres constantly change shape as they warm up and cool down with speed changes. The vibration in the steering and noise when this happens is quite bad, though it goes away with more time driving. These tyres are probably fine for low speed town driving, as this problem occurs when transitioning between motorway/freeway speeds and town speeds.

Mostly Motorways for 600 Average miles

BMW 520d M Sport

Done 600 miles in these tyres so far and they scare the heck out of me. The car is now unpredictable and the handling is scary to say the least. would never under any circumstances buy these again even for half the price. Probably OK for Town driving up to about 40 MPH but above that and they seem in conflict to the car and its suspension settings (Main Dealer Serviced 3 year old BMW). The last time I had Tyres that handled this badly was with Cross Ply's back in the late 1970's. In terms of experience I have driven over a million miles in all sorts of vehicles in all weathers and conditions all over the world from old bangers to brand new Beemers and Mercs and these tyres are unlike anything I have ever experienced. I have no idea how long they will last but I hope they wear out quickly because at the moment I am considering writing them off and putting it down to experience and buying something safer albeit more expensive.
