Lasted well 85k and just reached the wear bars on the outside of fronts

These were fitted as OEM on a Honda Jazz. Traction and grip seems fine to me compared to any other tyre I have used in 45 years.. Having just reached the wear limit and about to be replaced I have just noticed (once) some slipping momentarily in the wet starting up hill when I was a little aggressive with the clutch. The only other times they have lost traction was in the dry up a steep gravel hill and once on tarmac with full throttle in 1st up a 22% gradient. They have never lost grip cornering or braking. Noise seems reasonable. I would buy same again except I am looking for something ECO to help economy which is good at 5.9 l/100km average but I always want more. Show details

Slides in wet weather

Ok tyres i guess. They came oem on a jazz, i am shocked to see they are worth $120 per tyre. They are dangerous in wet weather and not too bad in dry weather. Very noisy as well when driving above 80km/h. I don't like them and i want to change them as soon as i can, i do not feel secure driving on those.

It is now 70k and still doing quite good

These tyres are on my Jazz since day 1. It is now 6 year past and 70k but they are still strong. I am surprised to see other comments regarding this tyre. I never have any problems during wet.

I am thinking to get these again when the time comes but having read others comments, may just try other brands to be safe.

I'd give them minus if that were possible

These tyres are the worst I've ever had in the wet. They still have most of the tread - probably because they are made of some hard compound which does grip at all in even the slightest damp conditions. Every sprinkle of rain becomes a terror trip! Avoid these tyres at all costs.

Bad...Very Bad

Specs:

1999 Hyundai Excel

175/70/13

First, the good:

Long life

Dry grip

Second, the overwhelming bad:

These tyres are pretty much crap! These tyres given a little moisture on the road, slip and slide whenever they have the chance. From taking off (less than 2500rpm) and going through round-abouts (especially here in the A.C.T.) is a fun game. Basically driving these in the rain is almost asking for trouble (regardless of PSI too and whether they're on the front or back). To contradict this though, you need to run them higher for the sidewall not to wear so either way you're screwed! Noise and ride is horrid too.

Goodyear brand tyres seem to have been getting worse but the prices rise?

Advice - avoid.

Wet weather disaster

165/70R13' 25 000km, even wear across tread, 3 to 4 mm tread depth left, and these tyres became unpredictable in the wet to the point of being dangerous. Ok in the dry but nothing to write home about. In the last 6 months I'd conditioned myself to fear rain on corners, hill starts and orange lights, lest these babies let go. It felt weird getting new tyres while these still had tread depth, but I was all outa confidence. So glad I ditched them! got Yokohama bluearth ae01s and can drive like a normal person again.

Worst mileage of any tyre used in last 40 years

Lasted less than 24000 kilometres to minimum tyre tread wear marks?

Ride was Ok a bit soft at times on bumpy roads

Handling was good for front wheel drive vehicle

Wear was even over entire tyre

Handled well in the rough and on wet bitumen

Would not recommend due to poor tyre wear
Ride was OK
Failed to last more than 24000 kilometres
