    I have these tires for almost a year and I'm happy. I drove over the sea and the mountains, including motorways, really all about. We know that if someone drives aggressively is not its segment, but for normal driving about the most. Moreover, I used this summer tire also in the winter and with careful driving was a zero reservations from my side. After a year of operation, the tire has no significant signs of wear, so I think it will help a little. I highly recommend, before buying used tires for 80 - 100 zł, really worth a little bit and make even have a new lower class. New is always new, from what I know is these tires are produced in the Netherlands and belong to the corporation More > Hankook. They are not as bad as some people here write for normal driving really recommend it.

    Forced purchase of two tires choice fell on Kingstar. Firstly, new tires, secondly, the price quite ok, thirdly opinions inninnych drivers on Oponeo. To sum up, a good buy! After the assumption of Tyre once had to drive a distance 2000km route - a fairy tale for such a cheap Nowki'm surprised durability and a good coefficient of resistance. It is true that urban toy car because it's just Corsa and tire size does not knock 13.

    I put these in service on a taxi and we had first major snowfall last night. I was quite impressed by the feeling of sure footedness. With traction control it's next to impossible to spin, turning it off and I found they grip in fresh snow 3 inches deep very well. To feel them out I went and played in a giant snow covered empty parking lot. The tires hung in and gripped very well on sharp corners and stopping from city speeds rapidly was very impressive. (new premium brake components didn't hurt either) Road bumps felt very close to the summer tires that came off and road noise seemed minimal, mind you the hiway had a skif of snow covering it. They do throw a lot of snow, slush, water but I More > suppose that's far better than not and having them fill in with packed snow. No they are not the high end tire on the shelf but they have performed very well for me so far and will definately get my nod of approval.

    Tyres bought in Germany a year ago. I bought because it was the cheapest and had to do a review. Przejezdziłem all season and I'm pleasantly surprised. Tread August holds no traces of wear, zchowanie on the water and dry very well. Maybe a little louder at 150km / h on the highway but the radio interferes with the volume. :) If you have a dilemma such Kingstary or used from a friend that it is no wonder. New tyres are new and none Drug Minimum Age will not be better. Kingstary recommend to people who are looking for a compromise price / quality. Rating 4! More >
