I have on my car the Michelin primacy 3 and I am very pleased with them, and recently fitted Michelin energy savers to the van to replace the Hankooks, again very pleased with them, I have also had the continentals on my Mondeo, I still think the premacys are better. All tests are subjective, if the results were absolute, everyone would get the dunlops and nothing else, the test is a guide, it will not suit everyone.

I have the Goodyears which came second on the Smax.

 

Can't fault them and when the Rio is due some new shoes I will be replacing the OEM kumhos with them as they are shockingly noisy.

I have always fitted Michelin but they do seem to wear very quickly (Energy savers), the Pirelli P6000 on my last company car where frankly dangerous. My new car came with Toyo's as standard and i am very impressed frankly.

The old days when Michelins lasted for "ever" AND were good in the wet, have long gone.

I would second that on pirellis. I had them on my Mini Cooper s and it was like driving on ice when the roads were damp. Could not wait to change them.

Had the conti 3s on my last Volvo and they wore quite well. My new Volvo has Pirrelli Scorpions on and they feel fine . Not had this long so will see how they wear. They are made for awd vehicles.

UniRoayl RainSport 3's were fitted to my E class in July - and they will be coming off this week! - the Caravan is all over the road with them! - this doesn't happen with my Winter (Pirelli SottoZero) or the Old Dunlop SP SportMaxx GT

I have never heard anybody EVER say anything good about Uniroyal tyres. .. Must be something about them?

A middle range tyre test not testing any high performance tyres.

 

Goodyear Eagle F1, Continental Sport Contacts, Michelin Sport 3's etc etc.

 

The tyres tested are aimed towards the average Golf or Focus but they aren't available in the sizes that many tow cars come in.

 

I'm in the same opinion as Milkymarsh and have a VW and BMW. Have tried other brands but keep coming back to Continental. Replaced the Conti-Sport 3's on the Passat last year with Goodyear F1 Assy2's. The F1's have outstanding reviews and are cheaper than the Conti's but I've found the ride harsh, lower profile than suggested so the speedo under reads and the fronts have worn unevenly and have vibration even when balanced.

The car's had a full hunter alignment and everything is spot on.

Even though they have 4mm left I've swapped them for some Conti's and everything is fine again.
