The tyre is excellent in dry conditions, sharp reactions, superb handling. It has an unbelievable mileage! I have now driven over 7.000 miles and has used LESS than 1MM !!! Expected life OVER 30.000 MILES!!! On the wet, the tyre is not a s good as the premium brands, but still very effective. Handling is sharp again, and the tyre give a very good feeling to the steering. Could be a bit more quiet at high speed , and it is very hard. This is excellent for the track, maybe a bit less for daily home to office journey. Still, a very good tyre !! Good job!
These tyres came fitted to my 2015 TT TFSI Quattro when bought as an approved used car - They seem to be ok when the roads are dry and warm in these conditions the handling is reasonable. I have much less confidence in the wet though . In a straight line they are fine but are dreadful in corners. I'm not sure whether they do not suit my car with it being 4 wheel drive but they loose traction really easily in corners so much so I have no confidence in them when driving in damp/wet conditions. I think they must be a really hard compound as there are no visible signs of wear whatsoever and after 5000 miles are still showing 8mm on all 4 corners. According to the other reviews They appear to work well on other types of vehicles but recommend you don't use if you have a TT Quattro. Will be changing as soon as I can before winter sets in.
Couldn't justify the cost of Bridgestones that my Mazda 6 Sport came with at nearly £200 a corner fitted, so glad, as these new GT Radial Sportactive are far smoother with less noise and half the price. So far handling has been equally as good as the Premium Brand for the type of driving I do. At this price point will deffo look at these again for my next change, which is hopefully in a few year's time!
