Summary: Decided to scrimp on tyres again last year, as my motoring interests lay elsewhere. The tyres were recommended by the garage, read a couple of reviews and they seemed ok. Got a set fitted, they were cheap. The dry grip on these tyres is good, they had a lot of feedback in the dry and could confidently corner at speed. The wear on them is excellent as well, I would note however that they do squeal a bit on some surfaces.
Summary: These tyres were fitted on the front of the car when I bought it, and I was not overly impressed with them. Dry grip was ok, but nothing special. I wasn't concerned with outright grip or how the tyre felt at the limit, as I very rarely pushed the car's abilities. What did count was wet grip - and these failed.
