Given 50% while driving a Mazda MX5 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Fitted to a Mazda MX5 mk2.5.The dry grip was ok, somewhat spongy in cornering. They are very pressure sensitive, 28psi was a good pressure, 32psi and you even up with the car jittering all over the road. Wet grip is scary, I had the fourth spin out and the tyres had to go in as little as 10k miles. Some road surfaces in the wet I could not accelerate from standstill taking off in 2nd gear without them wanting to slip.

Swapped for Uniroyal RainSport, they cured the wet problem but soon faded to awfulness after 10k miles. Then went with Goodyear Eagle F1 and they ride great on the 16 inch wheels.

Given 44% while driving a Alfa Romeo 1.9 JTD M (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
Truly awful tyres. Let go on me in the middle of a very dry day through a bend i've driven a million times with no issue. Huge road noise, useless in the wet,and scary in the corners. So glad they dont make these anymore but if you buy a car with these on, get rid sharpish!! Matador MP46 Hectorra 2's were superb.

Decent tyre for urban driving.
They are very noisy on sprinted driving, screeching out of every corner.
Sprinted driving in the dry is decent with them, feedback is nice and they grip when you want them to the most.

In the wet though they are a nightmare. They loose grip with very little warning and you have to drive with caution.
Heavy rain is even worse and Icy conditions shouldn't even be attempted.

I did 2000km of sprinted driving around Tasmania with these on the front. Loved them every little bit in the dry but every time it was wet the car did not want to stay on the road and was sliding all over the place.


If you live in an area where its dry then I'd say go for them otherwise cross them off the list.

Given 57% while driving a Fiat Stilo (215/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 17,000 average miles
good tyre with good grip in dry and wet. The price is the big let down not worth the extra over cheaper tyres like the kuhmos of this world

Great tyres, except that they don't do the job so well at heavy rain. Other then that, the tyre wear was something unexpected in a bad way. They were gone at 20000 to 30000 kilometers (~15000 miles). Since the price is a little high I don't recomend these (anyway, I think they are not being produced anymore).
