Don’t last on low mileage

No nick name, stupid system saying I must put at least 4 characters - August 3, 2020

Look good to start with but don’t last. I have two of these on the rear of my Astra fitted in 2017, hardly done any mileage, certainly no where near average yearly mileage and they are both cracking like glory where the tread meets the wall.. both tyres. Not happy at all.

Poor handling

Slee - July 2, 2020

Replaced tyres on mx5 nd and these tyres give very poor handling. I would have put on pilot sports but they didn’t come in the correct size. Costco recommended these but do NOT put on a mx5. I now need to replace all tyres back to factory spec. Waste of money.

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.
