    I usre the tyres on my Ford Focus estate. I have this car since September, so I have no comparison of its behaviour on other tyres. Previously I used a Partner on popular Kelly tyres. After the first snowfall I got a little scared when I had to drive out of my driveway. I had to go about 70 metres to the main road, uphill all the time. The Partner was driving without any problems, and the Focus fitted with Barum Polaris 3 had a bit of problems. I had to take the hill a few times. Apart from this situation, the tyres are worth recommending. They are much better than Kelly on the road, quieter, provide better grip on wet and on slush. For such price Barum Polaris 3 are definitely worth recommending.

    Ive tested the Barum Polaris 3 in heavy winter.Ive done 20,000 km of which 10,000 km in the middle of winter with snow and ice. The rubber proved to be very good and strong. Nice tread pattern. The car has always been kept up very well to the road and with the thick snow and icy roads. Never had a problem with the discharge of mud and water. When driving on dry asphalt you hear a slight noise but not too loud. The second car I have fitted that tyre and it has always been very controllable on wet snow. The tyre well behave even with a more dynamic driving on snowy roads. Ive already recommended that tyre to many of my friends and I can recommend it to you. Barum Polaris 3 is a tyre to go for!

    Tyres Barum Polaris 3 are performing very well in my car. Especially in the wet. On a dry very quiet ride even on bold tyres. With these tyres the car is literally glued to the asphalt. I have no fear that i can lose traction with these tyres. They are just perfect for AUDI. Previously, I had Michelin and to be honest I can not see the difference in driving. For the price at which they are available, no one will buy better tyres. My driving style has always been aggressive but for several years now I ride with small children so I switched to safety and these tyres give me the satisfaction and sense of safe driving. I would recommend Barum Polaris 3 with my hand on heart :)

    The winter was unusual but while driving in such variable conditions I have decided to perform various maneuvers like braking at different speeds in different weather conditions, turning left and right at different speeds in different weather conditions, even tried to slide! This was not Certainly a professional test but I wanted to see what are the possibilities of my car fitted with Barum Polaris 3 tyres with my style od driving.Im very happy because I have found that I am able to control the car in some unusual conditions when i got the Barum Polaris 3 tyres on! I can easily recommend these tyres for any winter.

    I can safely recommend Barum Polaris 3 I use them in my SUV and after driving 7.500miles in different conditions i didnt have any problems with grip and driving stability. Both on dry and wet surface the tyres behave predictably,in slush the breaking distance has extended but this is understandable in such circumstances. On the ice with the recommended lower tyre pressure the Barum Polaris 3 behave extremely good when accelerating and braking. Due to the rear-wheel drive in Suzuki Grand Vitara you need to be careful when entering a turn at snowy or icy roads, because in this case any tyre wont help.
