Mostly Motorways for 90,000 Average miles

Fiat Grande Punto 1.3Multijet 75bhp

Had them as stock fit for Fiat GP 1.3 diesel. They were very noisy (winter dayton dw510 were a blessing for comfort!). They had bad wet grip. But the durability... 140 thousand kilometers. Thats like 90 thousand miles! They weared down to 2-3mm depending on tyre. To be honest if I'd made a switch to have the 2 better tyres on front I'd do an extra 10 thousand km without a problem.

After they had worn out to 4-5mm they started to have a better wet grip (worse aquaplanning of course), and started to be a bit more predictable.

They never had a good grip to start with, but honestly, as they wore out - the grip didn't change too much.

Won't buy again, since I really need a quiet tyre. And these tyres also were a bit expensive when I checked them

Peugeot 106

No feedback whatsoever. The only feedback I get is the fact that I can see my car turning when I move the wheel. Sure the car turns as expected but the lack of feedback gives me low confidence. They have essentially ruined any enjoyment I got from driving this low powered reasonably lightweight car.

They seem to provide similar levels of grip and turn to my previous set of tyres except for the lack of feedback, so I cannot tell where the limit is. Pretty sure I was understeering at one point but couldn't tell with these.

Can't comment on their wet grip, but the lack of feedback in the dry makes me think that the first I'll know about it loosing taction in a corner will be when its too far gone and I'll be going in a direction of no return.

Wear - well I've only had them for 5 days and I hate them, I couldn't care how long they last.

Comfort - well they are quieter than my last set of tyres.

Mostly Motorways for 35,000 Average miles

Fiat Grande Punto 1.3Multijet 75bhp

The only good thing about these tyres are that they cover high mileage. I drive many miles on the motorway, and in the wet they do not give any confidence especially on slip roads from one motorway to another. Most cars can do in-excess of 50mph, with these tyres at 50mph I feel the car is under-steering considerably.

The tyres have done 35,000 miles with 6mm left on the back tyres and 3 mm on the front.

These are great tyres had some on a Rover 25 and it was really nice to drive on country roads. Changed to Continentals and it lost some progressiveness in corners.
