this is a tire for bad summer, like snow in the top of the mountain, frosted morning. heavy summer rain, mud and outback country road.very ggo for the people who like put his summer tire early and late to put winter tire in automn.
I have had many tires on my vehicles, this is the overall best tire. Over 100000Km Have had these tires in the worst of snow storms and the hottest of days...rain, sleet and ice. I will be replacing them with another set of Toyo Celsius CUV. Does what it says it will do.
These are the worst tyres I have ever experienced, by far. I would even say that they are dangerous. They replaced 4 Uniroyal RainExpert tyres which were very worn-out. Apart from the fact that they were noisier, the worn-out Uniroyal tyres were much better than the brand new Toyos. Positive: -they are quiet -quite comfortable, although not as comfortable as you would expect from such a soft sidewall Negative: -slow steering response and poor grip on dry, wet and snow -very long braking distances in all conditions -very soft sidewall which gives awful handling characteristics -imprecise steering with very little steering feel -unstable feel at all speeds, dangerous almost. In corners, the back end is all over the place -the car is leaning much more into corners, compared with other tyres It may sound harsh, but this is my honest experience. I am replacing them after 10000 miles, even if they seem to have tread left for another ~15000 miles. There is nothing wrong with the car, these are the first tyres that made the car behave like this. The results are the same with any tyre pressure. I know that you can buy Toyo Celsius tyres made in different countries. These 4 have written on the sidewalls: Made in Japan.
