Ok, but not brilliant
Hyundai i45, 2.4l, 225/45/18 These tyres came with the car and they were pretty good until I had them rotated the second time, front and rear at my car's second service at 30000km. The vibration and noise was so bad that I took the car back to the dealership as I was afraid something had not been properly tightened! (You could feel the vibration through the steering) The mechanic took a drive with me and said that it was due to feathering of the tyres. I have tolerated the noise for the past 10000km and the two on the rear are now at their legal limit. The two currently on the front will move to the rear for a month or three while I save up to replace them as well (probably not more than 3000km) I do check my tyre pressures every week.In their defence, their grip-levels are very good, wet and dry. I enjoy sticking to the speed limit - even if the stated limit is posted on an extremely twisty bit of Adelaide Hills road. Tap the paddles to drop it down a gear or three and hang on! I hope the replacements offer the same levels of grip - just more quietly!

Noisy and Seem overated.
I bought two of these tyres for the front of my E38 7 Series BMW. Although I think they are better then what I had on there when I bought the car (Bridgestone Turanza) I think they are much more noisy at freeway speed, Developed bulges in the side wall (after less than 100km on a sealed freeway and didn't hit anything), Kuhmo wouldn't warrant them but Bob Jane did and replaced both of them. Less than 50 kms later the same thing happned both tyres on both inside and outside walls. The steering's been checked, car had a wheel alignment when it got the first set. Maybe a bad batch? They wouldnt warrent the second set. Will never but these again.
