Grip, steering precision and comfort are premium-class, but wore out quite quickly (after 20,000km there is still 4 to 5mm left, so it's not too bad). Everything else was great. Driving has been "easy going" mostly, but sometimes I have pushed them harder on curvy country roads and I always accelerate quite fast.
One of the best tyres I've used so far. Perfect match for my Toyota Corolla. Managed to run for more than 40000km and still more that 1-2mm tyre is remaining. Used to drive hard on the car and harder on the accelerator. Once Bridgestone and always Bridgstone. (Y). Cheers
I've been driving on budget tyres for 10 years. 2 years ago, I decided to make a change and bought these. 2 years now, one is with 2mm thread and the other three were between 3 to 4.5mm. So with conservative driving and good alignments, they do last. In fact, if it wasn't for the 2 heavily broken ball joints, these tyres could have lasted 40'000 miles. (Yes, I driven on 2 broken ball joints for 10,000 miles, wear out the front heavily, then I rotate the tyres around.) In terms of dry and wet grip. They were good, but I just somehow felt wet is slightly better than dry. Handling? I rarely test the limit of them, so I can't say. Comfort? Good initially, 2 years now, average I would say, since no tyres can not resist ageing no matter their brands. Would I buy again? Depends on the price. I mean, I drives a lot (15'000 miles town driving per year). Sure grips are important, but wear and tear is what I valued the most. At its current price (£81.56), I would rather get Michelin Energy Saver Plus (£83.99).
