Initial Review, 15,500 Miles on Tires
October 29, 2012
Car: Seat Leon 1,6 Reference
I know that I buy this tyre as a oversized tyre for my car. But? The first experience was: wow! What tyre! This tyre has a very good and nice grip on a dry surface, with fantastic steering response. You can feel every move of your steering. This tyre is not a tyre for more than 60% city drivers because, in that case, you should consider to buy some cheeper tyre. On the open road and on the highway, you can feel that this tyre is not some entry level tyre. On your steering wheel you have "safety feel" and you don't need to worry that you will lose your grip in some "heavy situations" on the road. A several times, I go a little bit to fast in the curve on the road, and I have a feeling that only tyre saved me from the Crash (dry conditions). I must notice, that I'm not a sport driver, and my Seat Leon have only 100HP. So, I write this rewiew only for the tyre and my experience.
In wet conditions, I didn't have any "The Situation on the road", but also I feel a plenty of safenes feeeling.
Also, I must say, that this tyre is a powerfull in brake situations. No mether how strong you will make a brake, this tyre will be under control and they will no lose the grip.
I spend three seasons with this tyre (5000 miles per season) and I can recommend this tyre for sure. Because of my personal curiosity, I will try something else, but this tyre is one of my favorite.
NOTE:I could not choose my real car (Seat Leon 16V reference, 2005), so I choose VW Golf as a similar car of mine.
