    Review not verified

    Opinion from outside the UK

    A versatile tyre for high performance cars, good on dry and wet roads, and that's what it's supposed to be. As for durability, on average I change front tyres every year. I've seen comments criticizing durability, which is not true, I mean there are tyres that wear faster and don't offer as much grip and comfort, the critical comments are a kind of anti-advertising. By comparison I had Dunlop Sport Max, Bridgestone Potenza, Yokohama Advan A10, Good Year Asymetrico. Read more Collapse

    I am a daily driver, approx 40 miles a day. Fitted these on my leon fr. I drive spirited in a back road to work each day, they lasted 5k miles. If you want a good long lasting daily driver performance tyre do not buy these. However if it's your weekend car and yiu want excellent performance in wet or dry..buy them. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    They are a good quality tire with a lot of grip on the road and decent in recent snowfall. They are a noisy tire with low absorption due to the low profile of the tire. Read more Collapse
