while driving a
(225/45 R17) on
a combination of roads
Very, very loud and they ride hard, really hard, even at 2.2 bar (the lower limit of the tyres). You literally feel every bump on the road. I bought them last year and drove them on a Mitsubishi Outlander XL. Had to replace 3 tie-rod ends on the front suspension (2 left, 1 right) in 4 months. Also, the brakes started rattling (the holes where the slide pins go widened and changed shape from circle to ellipse). On top of that, for such a hard tyre, it wears super fast.
This winter I got Michelin Pilot Alpin 4 and oh boy, the difference is night and day. They ride super quiet and very soft, a total pleasure... unlike the Nokians, which I plan to replace every minute now, because I can't stand how bad they ride.
