A Combination of Roads for 8,000 Average milesOpel insignia
The tyres are factory fitted on Open Insignia B Country Tourer. The car is set up mainly for comfort a much less for sporty driving. The tyres correspond with the setting nicely. Even though CSC5 is sporty tyre according to the name they are quiet and refined. The grip in dry is good and in the wet very good. The tyres are progresive at the limit in wet but the steering in Insignia does not give much information to the driver.
The only other tyre I can compare to at the same car is winter Matador MP92 in the same size. The comfort and noise level is very similar. To my surprise even the steering feel is somewhat similar. Maybe that is given mostly by the high sidewall profile of the tyres for Country Tourer version of Insignia or the SUV version of CSC5 aims for more comfort.
Many people complain about the wear rate. In my case the front wheels lost 1 mm of tread depth and rear wheels 0.5 mm of tread depth in 10,000 kms. In my opinion that is very reasonable wear for tyres with such a good wet grip.
Overall I am very satisfied with CSC5 SUV. The grip in both dry and wet is very good and they are comfortable and quiet. The only disadvantage is price. For the future Falken FK510 or Fulda SportControl 2 might be a good and cheaper replacement.
