Pity they don't last

Chris - April 2, 2020

I have no real complaints with these tyres that were original equipment on my BMW G31 5 series Touring MSport 2017. They didn't inspire confidence in any small amount of snow and they have worn badly (scrubbed on the nearside front and I must replace the fronts at 38000 km. I normally expect to get at least 50,000. I would prefer to have M&S tyres but I can't find any to fit.

Disapointingly harsh ride

Fussy about comfort - March 7, 2017

Handling fine and not too noisy but you feel every bump in the road. Running them (225/50/17 98V XL) 3psi lower than specified pressures to improve comfort. They ride like uncomfortable run-flats. Very disappointed and wish I had bought Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance which ride much better.

    Totally transformed my Volvo S80 V8 AWD

    Lee69 - March 7, 2017

    These tyres turned my car from a "wallowing boat" into a precision driving instrument. True, the ride is not as comfortable as it was before, but prefer better handling to ride comfort any day. Highly recommend.
