I bought the aforementioned tyres with DOT 0812 and the problems started on the following day after fitting and balancing, the steering wheel was vibrating at 60 MPH so I went to my garage for re-balancing, it turned out that after 200 miles all wheels needed 35 grams more each. The balance was good for two days and then I went back to another garage to check my balancing, and again it was incorrect. This activity was repeated 5 times in different garages, so I decided to make a complaint of two front tyres first, and it turned out that one tyre was faulty and was replaced, now it's OK but not completely because I put back these tyres on front the situation is the same again, these tyres change balancing value constantly, which is unacceptable! I will make a complaint for two more tyres, the total disnance I made with them is 1500 miles.
I sought for appropriate tyres for a long time. I considered buying Dunlop Sportmaxx RTs, Vredestein Ultrac Centos, and Nokian ZG2s. I read the reviews, analyzed the tests in automotive press and chose Nokian ZG2s. Nokian had sensational resulats in all tests, and that persuaded me to purchase them but after driving a few hundred miles I can say that it was a mistake! The tyre is hard, not very comfortable and the car "bounces" on bumps. As for performance on wet, I can't comment because I haven't driven in these conditions on these tyres yet. The desing also isn't perfect, and polished grooves are just a marketing trick. If I was to buy new tyres again, the choice would be Dunlop Sportmaxx.This tyre is relatively soft and thanks to that absobrs bumps well.
Although I did only one season on these tyres, I'm very satisfied, they grip well in corners and don't lose traction during sudden maneuvers. I also didn't have any problems with braking. They do sensationally on both wet and dry. I also don't have any complaints when it comes to noise level. I drive a Passat B5 FL Saloon, and the tyre size is 225/45R17, and that's why I have a mixed opinion of shock absorbing due to the tyre size. I recently did a distance of about 500 miles and the drive was sensational - I can't describe it, you just have to get in the car and feel it youself ;) The look on the S-Line wheel is brilliant. I highly recommend it! My rating is 5/6.
A normal tyre, stock tyres were Geolandars, very durable tyres, I did on them 120,000 miles, I use Nokians as winter tyres and got encouraged by their quality and usability, and I bought summer Nokians. They can be compared to the aforementioned ones, better traction on dry and wet surfaces, good stability and traction, and noise level - comparing to stock tyres there's a great difference as Nokians are quieter. I didn't use them off-road, but because of the difference in tread design I don't think they would do well. I recommend them for pavement driving, they give a feeling of security and stability, the car goes like on tracks.
I got them with my wheels in size 215/45/17 91 Y XL. As for the driveability and behavious, the car does well on both dry and wet pavement, quick starting, hard braking gets a 5. The only drawback of these tyres is as one of the users wrote: "The one thing that put me off them and make me certainly not want to buy more of them is that thy have cracked in many places and they look like they're 10 years old."
My tyres are from 2008, and a year ago (after three seasons) the edges of the tyres looked horrible, like that rubber was cracked and stored incorrectly. Now one got damaged, and the time has come to buy something else :)
