Result: Would you buy again? N/A
Fantastic tyres, from the way they look (curved profile, always makes them look more stretched than they are and lower profile) to the way they perform.
Very forgiving with potholes and poor road surfaces of today.
Incredible performance in the wet - just feels like the dry!
Tyres do need to have some heat in them before they perform - below 8degress ambient they really do! If you use these tyres do switch to a winter (especially with BMW).
Deal really well with big heavy cars and changes of direction, they are great tyres and I recommend all the time to people.
Great wear considering performance. They cost a little more than competitors but they outlast - I really give mine some hammer tbh and I will still get 15000 miles out of them.
Please be warned that these tyres are hugely sensitive to tyre pressure - I have never experienced this really on a road car / tyre but it's true. At first I was worried these weren't as good as pilot sports I had in the past (I actually found them only as good as my Alpines winter tyres) but it turned out it was just tyre pressure. If one or two drop 2 psi you know about it.
Buy these tyres - they will make you smile , first time it rains they will make you smile even more
