Volvo V70 D5 AWD Tyre Review Highlights

Driving on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
Just got them fitted as an all year alternative. Aqua planing is very good, so is the low noise level. Have not tried them in winter conditions yet, but here where I live, its typically 12 degrees celsus and rain all year round. So tarmac and specially wet tarmac skills are what counts the most. Here them are safe in the wet, very steady in the grooves, and no drama. The only bad thing is brake grim on dry tarmac. I belive theese tyres are very good in snow... on ice... not so much, studded tires are of course better on ice, but you have to choose to what surface you drive the most.

Feedback from the tyres are not easy to tell, because the light steering and wobbly set ut of my volvo v70 takes away all feedback (I am spoiled with bmw feedback, chassis and steering, so theese tyres on a bmw would be great to try out)

This tyre is one of the best all year tyres I have ever tested. Works as a summer tyre in cold countryes. In warm countryes they will be too soft! Also its not the most hardcore wintertyre, but good enough, specially if you have 4x4.

These are the OEM tyres for my car. I am not impressed at all. They are prone to tramlining especially as they wear and the road noise and vibration is very poor. I can see why they are near the bottom of the league. Very twitchy when pushed in the wet. My first set needed changing at 17000 miles and at 40,000 I need a new set. The AWD on the car means they wear evenly. I will not be getting these again.
