Aquaplane at 55 to 60 mph in heavy rain.
These were fitted to the front axle of a 2003 Nissan X-Trail. At the rear were Scorpion STRs. I've never been happy with the grip in wet. The car would struggle to hold a line on bends even at moderate speeds and understeer very easily. As I've only had the car a year and these tyres were fitted from the start, I couldn't be sure if it was the car or the tyres. Turns out, it's the tyres, as I've just swapped the STRs to the front and put Michelin Cross Climates on the back. No more understeer in the wet. In fact, it holds incredibly well now. The Toyos are more of a 50/50 on- off-road tyre to be fair. But if you spend the bulk of your time on-road and drive in the wet you should avoid these.
Okay at lowish speeds in the dry but going faster or in the wet you seem to vaguely float across the tarmac.The ride is also similalrly vague, fairly comfortable, but slightly wallowly. I didnt like the feel from the word go, but assumed it was the recently acquired car, a 10 year old Honda CRV and the higher profile to the tyres. However I was genuinely shocked to find out they had really poor EU label ratings - F for wet braking - and switched to Michelin Crossclimates. Night and day difference, lower fuel consumption too.
