I have had them for 51.000km (31K miles) as my front tires of my Peugeot 407 2.0. I was a bit worried initially because I lost 2mm too quickly to my taste but then the deterioration stabilized and I had a good driving experience in all conditions (particularly with rain). After 51K kms the tires are
I just can't score these any higher. I have them on a 2006 Saab 95 Aero Combi and I got 30,000km from them which is the most I ever got on that car. I always used Goodyear Eagle F1s on it before but they were getting very expensive so tried the zLine. In the wet they are so much better than the Goodyear, the water they throw up is massive compared to the Goodyear F1 and they actually aren't bad in snow either. I found their ability to hold air much better too, I check my pressure twice a week and they may drop 1psi in a month where the Goodyear may drop that in a week. Don't get me wrong, the Goodyear Eagles are fantastic but they aren't as good as the Nokian zLine. The most mileage I got from a tire on my Saab was around 11,000km until I got the Nokian tires. In the dry they are very good, great feel and they wear better than anything else I've had, they wear perfectly to be honest. I live in Ireland and the roads here are probably the worst in Europe I reckon, the motorways are good but noisy but they drain water here better than any other European motorway. Some reading this might say I'm over stretching this review but seriously, the Nokian zLine is THE BEST tire I have ever used.
I use the 225/40/18 on a remaped Ford Mondeo 2.0 tdci with 8.5j rims. Comparing them to my 'ex' tires (Falken Ziex 914 EcoRun 205/50/17 on 7.5j rims ) I can say the following after 3.000 km: - 1 mm is gone already, I don't do street racing . I hope that the wear does not continue at this rate. - the sidewall is not that good, when coming out of a corner I feel that the car is being thrown out (I did not have this feeling with the Falkens) - they are a bit noisy - the dry grip is pretty good, wet grip also good . For the money (approx. 100 Euros) I would recommend them .
Great tyres. Changed the back last August and done around 12K on them - showing very little wear at all. Excellent in the wet and responsive and full of grip on dry roads. Just ordered another two for the front now my Pirelli Scorpions have worn out - the Nokians are the best tyre I've had on the Dodge, much better than the OEM Goodyear Eagle RSA.
Very sporty tyre, quite hard but precise handling. You can drive an SUV as an sport car. Because of spirited driving they wore out in three summers, driven approximately 25000 km. Very good in the wet (even with litle tread) and aquaplaning. Didn't have any truble with the tyres, so yes i would buy again.
I bought the car along with the tires, drove 20.000 km on them, and they are relatively good tires, getting a bit old and noisy, they have a good grip on dry roads, but on wet they feel slippery, especially with aquaplanning they don't do well. Don't know how new ones feel like, these are 2 years old. The ride is hard, but that might be due to low sidewall of the tire. Looking to replace them with Nokian Weatherproof SUV tires.
