No idea myself, but the reviews seem favourable as they're in the top half of the tests I found. Were they, ahem, affordable? Letusno what you reckon.

Anyway, you're meant to ask before you buy, it's a bit late now if someone tells you they're crap :|

EU tyre label is C (efficiency), B (wet), 68.
C is a bit low. 68 is excellent.
So I'd expect those to feel nice.

I got sick of searching through the interweb for reviews and prices. I did not fancy buying winter tyres and having to change them after the winter was over so for the first time I have gone for all season tyres on the front, it has good goodyear performance tyres on the rear ( I carry my tools etc in the boot to hold the rear down)
paid about £62 apiece fitted so lets hope they are worth it ? :roll: :?

I have generally found the EU tyre labels to be a good guide.

That's a bargain for new premium tyres.
Bloody double that for the 215/55/17 XL on the 407.

Current: 407 2.2 HDi 170 & C6 2.7 HDi.
Former: 406 1.9 TD; 406 HDi 90; 407 2.2 160; 307cc 180; 508 HDi 140.
