Summary: Compared to the Continental DW's these tires are decent. But for the price and longevity they seem to be a fairly decent tire. Would I run them on a race track, of course not, but for a commuter tire they are a good choice.
Summary: Running this street tire on my motorcycle was a gamble that has paid off. This tire still looks brand new whereas I would have had to already buy another motorcycle tire. It handles a little different but it was not hard at all to get use to. NO it is not rounded on sides but I still lay my goldwing way down in the corners with no problems at all. It stands the bike right back just like a motorcycle tire would have.
Summary: Comparing with Continenetal SP3, FD2 feels very soft and comfort. Very low noise and steering is lighter. In curves not slippy but feel soft and bendable. I would not recommend to sporty driving but to town and highways feels comfoftable.
Summary: Not a sports tyre in any way, but having very acceptable handling and grip including wet. BUT â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦.. whilst the ride quality is good, the road noise is awful and shows a very marked difference between different road surfaces. Great with a newly surfaced road with fine tarmac, the drive is almost silent BUT here in Northlands that isnâ€™t 90% of the roads! In my Subaru Outback 3.0L the noise is terrible......
Summary: Far better than they should be for the price, not a sports tyre in any way, but having very acceptable handling and grip including wet. They excel in ride quality and noise, very quiet on the road, find a newly surfaced road with fine tarmac and the drive is silent. Nice to have non directional tyres again, will be able to rotate much easier. Will buy again, they really are cheap at half the price.
Summary: I replaced my Yokohama Advan, that the car came with for this tyre. I am very pleased so far, not only are they quieter. The overall handling of the car does not seem to be different, than when the Yokohama tyres were on the car. Also I have been keeping an eye on tyre wear, and they seam to wearing better than the previous tyres. I have not driven in the snow yet, so cannot comment on that. But wet weather grip is good.
