Good in dry, not so good in wet. Last forever!
These tyres came fitted to a Toyota Prius Plus (7 seater) and were 6-months old when I bought the car. They looked like new. In the dry they have good grip but the first time I went out in the wet it was a different matter. The drive wheels spun at a junction with the car being driven in eco-mode. There was no pressure from traffic and it was a slightly uphill junction. I started to pull away and they just spun. I then went onto a motorway (in the rain the same day) and the car started to brake automatically when the traffic in front started to slow down (active cruise control). The car did not slow down but just slid towards the car in front. Pumping the brakes to get rid of the water under the tyres worked and no accident occurred. On the next motorway the same thing happened and once again I managed by the skin of my teeth not to crash. Both hydroplaning incidents happened at 70mph on good road surfaces. So, in the dry the grip well but in the wet they are prone to being lethal. I am not a fast driver, who pushes the limits. I stick to the speed limits and try to maximise the MPG whilst making progress. I have ordered some 4-season tyres to replace them and I cannot wait to get the Bridgestone tyres off my car.
ER33 are fitted on Lexus and Premium JDM Toyotas in Asia..these are the worst tires ever, i cannot still believe these tires are standard on Lexus IS, ES and JDM camrys..its pretty wobbly during cornering, its very unresponsive during high speed..planning to get Hankook S1 Noble 2 which are standard on Benz and BMW in europe/asia...
