Wet grip limit very low

For everyday use, it is mostly adequate. It is relatively quiet and the wear is good. However, two problems worth noting. The sidewall is a bit weak and very soft. And the lateral grip in wet is marginal. The wet grip issue may need extra attention as the dry performance is good and wet brake is also not bad. You may develop a false confidence with the tyre’s lateral grip performance. Show details

Dangerous in the wet

I bought these when they came on sale and had my first chance to drive them any distance in the wet over the weekend. Starting out (in november so not cold ambient temp) there'd be wheelspin in first and second and even after an hour when they were warmer the car had a 4 wheel slide at one point but thankfully I caught it before going into a barrier. Dry grip is reasonable but wet driving is dangerous and wouldn't recommend them at all. Show details

Definitely not Toys

Two front Michelin Energy 205 65 R15s started to wear on the inside after 70K. Went to Tyrepower Torquay and was given a thorough recommendation to replace them with Toyo 205/65R15s for $30 less for each.
Went on a 600K round trip, mostly at 110K, in hot and then wet conditions and no way you could tell the difference from the super Michies.
Road noise, ride, fuel consumption, all perfect. Show details

Do not buy these tyres if you value your life!

Trust me. I have them fitted to our beetle and they are downright dangerous in the wet, providing no grip. They are noisy and unpleasant on the road. Their grip even in dry is very questionable. I would NEVER buy them again. After a couple of very dangerous situations on the road, I'm changing them first thing in the morning if I live that long. Show details

We've found them to be very good

Bought these to replace a worn out set of Pirelli's on the wifeys Suzuki Swift Sport. Found the grip levels to be very good in both wet and dry conditions. They are quiet, track nicely and are wearing evenly. Done 20k on them so far and very happy with them. Show details

poor grip in the wet

Nice tyre in the dry. These seem to be hard compound, hard wearing, hard ride, so the the trade-off is poor grip in the wet and that's the real test of a tyre. I've lost confidence in them with all the rain we've had, they might need to be replaced early for something softer if it keeps raining, and we have another year of LaNina forecast!
These would be a good drought tyre. Show details

Excellent value for money

Got a set of four for our SUV. First thing I noticed was how quiet they are the moment I left the dealership. The following day did a 3hr drive north in the rain; these things stick to the road like glue. Return trip three days later was in dry, sunny weather and again, superb handling. Have only had for a few months so can't discuss longevity but definitely stoked. Show details

Pretty good, really

Despite many reviews here stating that these tyres have poor grip in the wet, I have found them to be pretty good, really.
I live in Far North Queensland, one of the wettest areas in Australia, with 2500mm average rainfall per year.
Fitted to my 07 Forester, I have never lost traction or spun the wheels EVER....
I don't speed, but I'm a "nippy" driver.
And I got 60,000 km from the last set...!
You can't ask for much more than that.
Just replaced them with another full set from Tyrepower in Cairns, who give exceptional service. Show details

Good quality tyres

I left a review on the Dunlop Sportmaxx tyres that came OEM on our FG XR6T Falcon in 2012. Once the Dunlop tyres (SP3000A's), we replaced them with wore out, we replaced them with these. It is now on its second set of these. The current set have around 15k on them and they look and handle like new. We got around 60k out of the other set. They handle well in the wet and dry, but if you want it to break traction, it will. I also own an FG-X XR6 one tonner cab chassis. If I could use these instead of the Goodyear Cargos that are on it (weight rated), I would, as they are more suited to that type of power output. Would definitely recommend. Show details

Good in a straight line on a dry road

Fitted to a T31 X-trail, ok in the dry but terrible in the wet. I don't drive aggressively, but had to seriously nurse it through corners and roundabouts on wet roads. Stopped on a hill at lights? Forget about it.

Very slippery on wet roads

Replaced 2 rear tyres on a ford falcon 2010 fg , have to agree with a previous poster here very slippery on wet roads. Trade off hopefully high mileage with harder compound . Looking forward to summer Show details

Wears well over time

Have these on a Nissan Dualists and They seem to be lasting and wearing better than than others I’ve used (pirelli, Dunlop, Goodyear). They were a bit cheaper which made me a bit weary, but pulled the trigger based on reviews and have not been disappointed. Show details

Toyo Tyres

I updated tyres on my Toyota Camry to Toyo 205 tyres recently.
Im finding them slightly different to the Camry factorie standards, but they drive well to date and were good value on a deal.
Ive not had any problems with them and happy overall.
Good in all weather conditions. Show details

Question to Toyo tyre reps. It seems from some of the reviews that the tyres are not good in the wet conditions. I was looking at fitting a set to a 2015 Subaru Liberty sedan, but from some of the negative reviews I am now not so sure.

I am not a Toyo rep, I bought them for my GT86. Yes, in the wet they do lose traction. They also break away under acceleration of you do not apply power very smoothly. In the dry, no issues at all and they have good wear quality.

Thanks Phil
From your reply and others I will look at other brand options.
