Fitted these to my wifes Mini clubman S as I had previously had them fitted to my Audi RS4. They are an excellent tyre for the money and few tyres can match them in the wet. Road noise is also very good on them. Like all tyres what works on one car doesn't necessarily mean it will work for all, but at the cost of these they are well worth going for. The rate of wear is a little high, but then its a soft compound that enables high grip levels and its this that leads to the wear rate. You could spend twice as much on a Michelin PSS or just buy 2 sets of these IF you find they wear out quickly. I still find it staggering that people put wear above grip. Frankly I'd rather know that when I take a corner in the wet or dry, or when I hit the brakes hard (in an emergency for instance) that my tyres will not brake traction. These tyres will out perform alot of higher priced tyres, and will out perform alot of similarly priced tyres that have lower wear rates. I will definitely buy these again.
I have these tyres on my Golf running 340 bhp (fwd) and they are great for launching and straight line grip due to the soft tire walls. They also perform well in the wet and feel safe on the motorway even in heavy rain. However due to the side walls being very soft they do not inspire confidence through corners. Have worn better than expected for a cheaper tyre.
Tires drive better on rain than on dry tarmac. Considering the price it is well worth it. Would buy again
