Fiat Punto GT turbo Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Dayton D210 given 84% (185-55-14-H)
Driving on a combination of roads for 50000 spirited miles
These Dayton D210 were my choice after using Premium brand high perfomance tyres, like Michelin, Bridgstone and Continental.

In truth, I've never expected much of these Dayton D210...But, I did choose them because they´re made at the Brigstone tyre Factory in Italy, and what a suprise they actually turned to be!

The tyres were (and still are) fit to a Fiat Punto GT, doing an average of 20000km/year. It´s my daily runabout car, long distance runner and also my favorite toy when the road is not a straight line - so they do have to cope with some serious amount of stress.

So, for the Dayton D210 , they are cheaper than the premium brands which is a plus, and are incredibly grippy, very progressive on the limit.

They are especialy good allround tyres, and tend to last about 25000km - on extremly demanding driving conditions. The other premium brands didn't last much more than that and the conti sport contact 2 were not as good as the Dayton on wet roads.

Fitted on to a car that's driven more calmly, the Dayton D210 can last for about 50000-60000km. I've seen better than that form Michelins and Continentals lasting 70-80000km, but those tyres were not as good as the Daytons on wet pavement (expecialy granite stone pavement).

So, these tyres are not the cheapest nor the more costly, and can deliver premium perfomance when you are expecting for a lower perfomance tyre.

It was a suprise to me, a very good one.

Not your usual UHP tire:
These tires cannot match the most expensive UHP competition gripwise. Steering response and feedback are average too - all due to the relatively soft sidewalls, which in turn make them really comfortable!

Wear is mediocre, but the price is reasonable.

These tires are very progressive on the limit, but you should drive conservatively in the rain. They prefer soft suspension setups on wet roads!

Excellent rim protection.

Overall, a top choice for a comfortable UHP tire on a budget! Not suitable for hard-core applications.

PS. Also running them on a Hyundai i10 1.2 (same size) with the same impressions...

On wet conditions these tyres are dangerous..

Worst tyres I ever had. Avoid them at any cost, don't get fooled by the looks of them. They don't grip at all, especially in the wet. They had a nice grip for the first 2000 miles, and they became like plastic. Utter robbish.
