Great tyre very impressive wet grip even in standing water, dry grip is good but not impressive especially above 7degrees C. fitted on my mini cooper gp2 as winter tyres i would buy these again.

Purchased a 2019 Mini Cooper John Cooper Works for my wife which cane with these tyres. I thought they would have been great tyres based om the brand, however I was so wrong, my wife doesn’t even want to drive the car anymore with those tyres. Our main complaint about the tires are the road noise, very harsh ride, sidewalls are weak and poor feedback. After 2 weeks (less than 800km) of owning the car, we damaged 3 of the 4 tyres, 2 potholes caused the tyres to burst (sidewalls had big holes in them where the rubber was just flapping) while travelling less than 40 km/h, the other tyre was lost from a sink in the road were the sidewall rubber tore away.
I will never buy these tyres again, we are from Jamaica and these tyres can not hold up to our conditions, looking to purchase Hankook Ventus evo2 instead, the run flat nature ruins the ride of the car. I don’t understand how a high performance car can come with touring tyres which are so inadequate, these tyres ruined the experience of the Mini Cooper JCW.
