No obvious bad points.
Our tests examine the difference in performance between tyres in extreme conditions. In daily driving you probably won’t notice it, but how your tyres perform in an emergency or wet conditions is when the difference really counts. Our tests are performed by a trained driver under controlled conditions on a closed track.
Overall score is calculated from wet cornering (30%), wet braking (30%), dry cornering (20%) and dry braking (20%).
Cornering assesses how well the tyres keep the test car in a set lane at speeds of 80km/h and 85km/h in dry conditions, and 75km/h and 80km/h in wet conditions. We use a right-hand corner with a radius of 55m. The tyres are tested twice in differing orders.
Braking measures the distance it takes to come to a complete standstill in emergency braking tests from driving speeds of 50km/h and 80km/h in both dry and wet conditions.
Rolling resistance measures the distance it takes to roll to a stop from a starting speed of 25km/h. This is completed 5 times, and the shortest and longest measured distances are discarded. The 3 remaining measured distances are then averaged.
Noise (where listed) is measured at head level while driving on coarse-chip seal. Where 2 measures are given, they are at 50km/h and 80km/h.
Price is per tyre (including fitting and balancing). The price guide is drawn from online prices, RRPs and quotes from tyre fitters.

Fits our Korean Hyundai Veloster car better than other brands.
Solid tyres that handle steep Wellington roads well, also the steep tight corners, even in the rain
Lasting longer than the much more expensive tyres.
Due to where we live the tyres on our car were getting thrashed. We were struggling to get he right size tyre and the tyre man reluctantly recommended these tyres as they were available immediately and were well priced. We are very happy with them.
The size we have is an R18 which Conusmer do not appear to have reviewed so this is a general review of
None we have found. The drive well on steep hills, flat and around twisty steep corners in the rain. No problems as all.
Yes, I recommend this product.
