while driving a
(225/45 R17) on
a combination of roads
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.
