Summary: I put these onto my 350SLK, after driving it for 10 months on the tyres it came with when I bought it second hand. Wow what a difference they made. They are really grippy, the back wheels no longer wheel spin if you pull off quickly, I no longer have to ease the accelerator in when wanting to overtake (it would spin and skid with the old tyres) and they grip around corners, are quieter and feel really positive when you're driving.
Summary: These are great tyres. The added grip has made the car much more fun and the road feedback you receive means you can push it into a corner knowing what grip you have left. Standing starts on these don't lose time and grip spinning the wheels, they just hook up.
Summary: Do not compromise when buying replacement tyres for your vehicle as they connect your pride and joy with road and ensuring the added safety you and your family require in all weather conditions. The combination of my 2012 VW Touareg and Goodyear F1 SUV tyres is total satisfaction providing both road handling and quietness..
Summary: Excellent tyres! And long-lasting! Loads of grip wet or dry - though most of my experience is from dry. Had these on my previous car (FWD) also, and in comparison to Continental SPs, more grip in the dry acceleration. What are the complaints about abnormal wear?? Half worn after 20k miles (32 000 km), had about 3-5mm left. As listed, I did mostly motorways. Perhaps the 4WD system (despite all the power; which I surely used btw!!
Summary: I was pushed towards vredstein by my local dealer when searching for replacements to the stock Pirelli tyres my car left the factory with. Thankfully, the supplier sent the wrong size so he did a good deal on these Goodyears which have transformed the car. Not sure about wear yet but initial feedback is very positive.
Summary: Blew the old Bridgestone's out of the water. Comfort, Grip, steering. Transformed the car completely. Now have the asymmetric 2 on, another step forward. Decent wear too for a high end tyre, two years from the rears (approx 16,000 miles) after having to put up with lots of torque
