Comment:
I bought these for my car to replace the Goodyear Assymetric 2 runflats which were fitted when I bought it. Fitting these tyres has improved the ride quality dramatically as run flat tyres are very hard. However in terms of wet grip these are a step backwards compared to the Goodyears. They are predictable and safe, but they lack traction when pulling away in damp conditions and the car just doesn't bite the road on wet corners like it did with the Goodyears. In terms of dry grip, comfort and wear they seem good so far but as they are not much cheaper than the Goodyear Assymetric 5's I would probably buy those instead next time. Overall a good but not exceptional tyre which has left me slightly dissapointed.

Comment:
Very good at cutting through standing water. Grip is less impressive, in both wet and dry it slides early and feels mushy in the corners which doesn't inspire confidence. Wear appears good, but the tyre is noisy on all but the smoothest surfaces. Not as good grip as the earlier Rainsport 3
