    Hi. Before buying these tyres myself, I spent a lot of time comparing offers and later reading through Your comments. I drive a tall car as for a passenger car of course:-) (citroen berlingo II) and the tyre must be good enough so that the car does not swim. In the beginning, I chose Nokian Line in size 205/65 R15 (the original manufacturer's size for summer). After fitting them, I immediately felt uncomfortable driving! The car was skidding along the road, left then right, but I had the steering wheel in my hands and I knew I had to drive straight! It turned out that two of the tyres have a manufacturing defect. I made a complaint and (oponeo) found out that two of them were good and two were not. I got a refund for the defective tyres and the good tyres were sent back to me (oponeo covered the shipping costs both ways). I decided to sell the two tyres (because my confidence was compromised, and we all probably don't have time for such stories) and buy a new set of tyres. I looked through the comments again and finally decided to buy BFGoodrich G-Grip 195/65 R15 95 T XL. For my car this size is recommended for winter, but hey, what gives;-) And these tyres turned out to be a hit! I bought them in April. Now it is the beginning of October and I have driven about 10,000 kilometres. I live outside the city, I commute to work every day, then around the city, then back home. They have also proved their worth on longer trips of 500 km a day. After fitting, the car drove like a charm! (despite the fact that the precision of the steering system in the Berlingo is not exactly perfect) On a dry road it drives superbly. On wet I'll write frankly that somewhere in there I'm not entirely sure, but that's only at too high a speed (so above 120). Tread wear: after 10,000 on the rear axle (I didn't measure in detail), no wear is visible. The front a bit more, but to my eye they will last three seasons at my mileage for sure. Fuel consumption...the increase was certainly not there! Comfort...it depends on each individual...I have no complaints. I'm driving my family around and I feel comfortable not thinking about the fact that there can be something wrong with the tyres! So that's what it's all about! Regards.

    I have covered about 11,000 km on these tyres. I have had Michelin and Dunlop tyres before so I have a point of reference. The two mentioned were basically inaudible, and they wore out very quickly. BF Goodrich tyres can be heard in a certain range of speeds, in my car about 70-90 km/h, depending on the road surface, but it is not a tragedy. Above these speeds the noise of the car makes the tyres basically inaudible. What I can say for sure is that the tyres are superb on wet roads. In the pouring rain, the traction control system is not even engaged when I drive into a rut full of water, whereas on the Dunlops it was sometimes a bit funny. When it comes to rolling resistance - fuel consumption - the BFGoodrich does indeed have more resistance. In my car, which is quite heavy (205/60/16 tyres), the average fuel consumption increased from 6.5 to 7.3-7.5 litres (mixed 50/50 road/city driving, often more urban). If I were to choose tyres for the second time in this price range I would not hesitate, once again BFGoodrich. Exceptional grip/water evacuation - which was a priority for me and low tyre wear. Recommended

    I bought the tyres after analysing the opinions of other users, the labelling on the manufacturer's website, the professional tests carried out on different tyres (published on the internet). The choice was a conscious one. Definitely, the tyres behave very well on both dry and wet surfaces: confident starting and braking. Appearance is purely subjective, durability after 12,000 km - seems satisfactory.The greatest assets of these tyres are rolling resistance and noise. Noticeably lower than my previous tyres, and I have ridden on tyres from various manufacturers - after replacing the tyres, the fuel consumption dropped by about 13% I decided not to go for cheaper tyres, and was convinced by the braking tests on various surfaces carried out on different tyre brands (including Chinese). Life is worth much more than the few coins more spent on quality tyres, which are our (the car's) contact with the road and cannot fail even in the most extreme situations.

    I will correct some additional information at the beginning :). I have an Opel Omega A 2.0l. Rear-wheel drive, and these tyres are fitted to the rear. Driving style- when I drive alone, I like to go crazy:D. Place of use- outskirts of the city, mainly as a route. road surface- all types. The tyres are initially quite noisy, i.e. above 80km/h they make a noise as if the bearing in the hub needed to be replaced. This inconvenience disappears after about 3000km. I bought them in winter and I must say that they work well on slippery surfaces. I would highlight that no tyre will be good on snow or ice if the speed is not adapted to the driving conditions :):). The tyres react the same way on wet or dry pavement. I have not yet had a skid on them. Sometimes you can feel a slight resistance, as if you were driving against the wind.

    Despite their hard sidewalls, which give them excellent grip in corners, the tyres are quite comfortable. In addition, while in the dry I would like even more although they are really great, in the wet they lack exactly nothing! I was driving on the motorway in a downpour with most drivers in the right lane and calmly 90-100 I was doing 150 and the tyres had no tendency to float. Another time I had a cloudburst in a city I did not know, despite the floating roadway, the only thing I had to fight with was visibility, because there was so much water from the cloud or fountains from under my wheels. So on the water they are a real marvel. As for the wear, I've got about 17-18 thousand miles on them and so far they're draining like new, because it poured again recently on the motorway and I didn't have to slow down.
