Mostly Town for 2,000 Average miles

Hyundai i30

I'm not happy with these tires. In dry weather, dry road, low speed the abs was activated even though it's the H speed category and they are almost brand new (less than a year old). This never happened with michelin or continental tires to me. Since they are unreliable on dry, I wonder what I have to expect on wet... I don't know about other hankook models, but thisone is not premium at all.

Hyundai Accent

Had them for over 2 years now with 15000+ km driven on them. The wear is definitely noticeable compared to tires from the past, but the grip and comfort you get for the price point, it's worth it to change them a season earlier than usual.

A Combination of Roads for 8,000 Average miles

Dacia Logan

I've had these tyres for almost two years and I can say for sure I've made a good choice. In around 8000 miles, done in different summer conditions (extreme hot weather and pouring rain), these tyres didn't let me down.
Dry grip is good and I allows for fast cornering without worries. What really impressed me was wet grip and braking, which are a plus for these tyres. Dry braking is also good. The tyres stick to the road and they never squeal even on brutal braking in emergency situations, even though they are fitted on a car without ABS.
Overall conclusion: good tyres for the price range. However, do not expect them to behave like high performance tyres. If you own a powerful car and enjoy spirited driving, there are better (and more expensive) options to choose from.

Mostly Country Roads for 2,000 Spirited miles

Volvo V40 1.9D SE

Went for these on my Volvo after being extremly satisfied with Ventus tyre from the same manufacturer.
Had them for about 2000 miles so far and the tyres are excelllent. Driven them in every kind of condition (from sunny hot day to very bad rainy weather and even some frost). Was worried due to some claiming bad grip in wet weather but quite the opposite I found them very good in the wet. Very happy so far, the price is great and would definitely recommend them.
