(RENAULT ESPACE RT-X)
Good quality tyre at excellent price point, appear to be wearing well, perhaps better than the XV3's, but not run for long enough to judge properly!
Excellent grip wet or dry, not experienced 'junction wheelspin' or the ABS chattering in either conditions (except on rutted roads) - unlike the XV3's they replaced!
The XV3's lasted approx. 20K on the front wheels which we now swap front to back annually to even out the wear, will be interesting to see what these will do!
Whilst I appreciate these are a Summer grade tyre, there is far too great a divide between acceptable performance levels regarding Summer/Winter use,
Driving under the lightest frosty/icy road conditions, these tyres felt shockingly unsafe with borderline directional control similar to severe aquaplaning or overinflated tyres making them feel positively Dangerous!
Absolutely the WORST tyres I've ever driven on in this respect and certainly bettered by the XV3's they replaced, Fortunately we don't do much motoring in these conditions, but when we have, it's much more slowly than which we're accustomed and well below any speed limits!
