A Combination of Roads for 19,800 Spirited miles

Lexus IS 220D

Actually a review for the factory fitted RE030 that came on my Lexus IS220d-SE from new. Just changed all 4 after 19,800 spirited miles. Fronts had about 1.5mm above wear bar, rears actually had about 4mm left (OK to sell as part-worn!) Fronts exhibited some outer edge 'tearing' and shoulder rounding. Rears have probably been saved by the traction control? Lexus state 3 pressure ranges for tyres and I've used the lowest generally (the dealer recommends the middle or higher to save wear), to give good wet weather grip and smooth ride on some appalling local roads. Overall very pleased. Replaced with Toyo Proxes T1-R and will report separately. Changed all 4 otherwise I'd end up replacing the rears even closer to handing my lease car back when changed next March. Thought I'd get my money's worth!

Honda Civic

Stock Tires on my civic drove 57K kms front ones are off, rear ones still have 3-4mm. Dry grip is good, not excellent, good, wet grip is kind of poor.

Mostly Town for 30,000 Easy Going miles

Suzuki Swift 1.5

Those are original, lasted 4 years and could be used longer but I did not like the way they made the car drive. they where hard, made the steering very hard job without improving the feeling which made long distance very tiring. Good road holding duo.

Lexus IS 220D

Hard wearing, but also noisy on the road, making every ripple audible. Very grippy in the dry. Looking for better wet grip, and less road noise.
