Mostly Town for 15,000 Average miles

Volkswagen

Had these on a VW Jetta 147 in Australia (known as GLI in USA, similar to Golf GTI) with factory sports suspension with fairly aggressive negative camber. Can't really complain about the grip as it was to a standard I expect without being exceptional however after 25,000km the tyres were badly scalloped (uneven wear) and the noise was unbearable especially on the rears. Whilst tread was only slightly worn they are junk and needed to be replaced. I will get my next set with a higher wear rating than these (at 140) rotated more but generally disappointed as I have never experienced wear and noise like this before.

Tyres were fitted with the car. They have served well and almost 60,000k. They've never really been pushed hard.

Mostly Motorways for 10,000 Easy Going miles

Audi A6

My first experience of Brridgestone tyres. I replaced the OE Continental tyres for these. Good grip wet and dry but fallling off fast now that they're 1mm above the wear indicator. Noise is no real difference. Very dissappointed with the wear for an expensive premium tyre. £750 for 4 and after 10,000 the fronts need replaced. Mainly motorway with a 60mile daily commute with a top speed of 70 (if I'm lucky).
