A Combination of Roads for 55,000 Easy Going miles

SEAT Ibiza FR 1.2

Original equipment on my Seat. Very low wearing: after 4 years and 55000 km of (quiet) driving on far from smooth roads, I can still rely on 30% of tread before reaching the marker, and rubber shows no cracks at all. Very good grip on dry, not as much on wet. More sporty than comfy. I'll change them for aging, not for wearing, and I'll stay with Dunlop.

BMW X6 M

Driving in dry conditions and little to no issues as soon as it’s wet they are dangerous! Exiting islands and car loses grip and actually slides on all 4 wheels! Tyre wear is hopeless 30% worn in 3000 miles only, car just had first MOT so mileage exact

Lexus IS250 RWD

Had these Tyres as stock, as for tyre specs - nothing special. Quite good handling, braking and waterproofness but bad ride comfort.
As stock Tyres these are fine.

SEAT Ibiza FR 1.2

Just changed the fronts on my Seat Ibiza FR got 24,000miles out of them so cannot complain on how well they last. The car sticks to the road. I can however spin the front wheels from a if I am a bit sharp when pulling off.
Decided to keep with them despite the cost £90 each. This is more down to the odd size.

Audi A1

Hard ride and high road noise. Reasonable dry grip (poorer in the wet) and handling, with fairly poor road feedback. Replaced with Continental Premium Contact 2 which seem much more compliant and grippy, slightly quieter, and offer a smoother ride.

Mercedes Benz S500

Just replaced Pirellis on my S Class 550L. Asked the dealer what were best for comfort and noise and these were recommended. Very pleased with them so far. Can't believe how much improvement there is over the Pirellis especially in comfort. The S Class is very refined anyway, but much smoother now. Will have to wait to assess wear.

BMW 520d M Sport

275 40 18 are a rip off size made so made it a mission to compare makes. These are equivalent grip to Contisport 5 which came with the car from new, but much quieter. Grip of the Dunlops and Contis In wet or cold weather on RWD is poor spinning out of junctions with normal driving - POOR.

Had Hankook Evo 117 on previously, average wearing but WAY better traction no wheel slip - will be buying the Hankooks again
