Very impressed! Better than the mothers conti ecocontact, and no comparison to the fulda ecocontrol that replaced. Very quiet, stick on the road, no abs blocking at all, very nice on the wet also. If they last, they will be the best tyre for the size. No surprise that they are the only tyres with A on the wet. Definitely would buy again!
I didn't check the manufactured date of the tyre until recently. Shockingly, I found out the tyre already extended few months from suggested year of use. So, the time I've used the tyre in good condition was just about 1 year. I travelled on most road condition in tropical country which sometimes good and sometimes bad with sunny and rainy day all year. Mostly I drive for UBER which prefer comfort, fuel economy and safety over performance. The tyre did well as long as I follow the speed limit. After the tyre expired, comfort is gone.
For small sizes (12"/13"/14"), only a few manufacturers develop good tyres with modern technologies. These are one of those, and it shows. Grip is really good on both dry and wet roads. While the sidewalls aren't as firm as i would have liked, the outer shoulder blocks in the tread are rigid enough to provide a good steering response and stable cornering. In the wet they are probably the best tyres for this size, also proved by the A class EU rating for wet braking. In my opinion comfort is just slighty above average. I won't judge wear or fuel consumption, as i haven't used them a lot. In summary, while these can't be considered sporty/high performance tyres (155/70 r13 is not a sporty size), they are miles away from the eco/long life models available in this size, in terms of grip/handling/feedback. I highly recommended them.
