They were priced as budget but exhibit premium tyre performance

Will be interesting to see how long term mileage compares to premium tyres

nothing. they are rubbish.

These tyres are rubbish. 2 new tyres were totally bald within 2000 miles and 3 months. I have been driving for over 40 years and have never experienced such a rubbish tyre as this. They have been back to Bridgestone for testing, and surprise surprise, they deny a problem. How can they test that the tyre is "up to standard" when all of the tread is worn away? You cannot test what is not there. Avoid these tyres and Bridgestone at all costs.

I like the profile and pattern. Look good on the car. The grip is excellent given their size. Good noise level. And Nationals price and lifetime damage benefit is excellent value. Beat the rest by £21 per tyre - bought 4.

Nothing really to dislike.

Mostly driven on rural roads which are for driving but also sometimes rough in texture. Tyres cope well. No issues. Car feels planted on the road when cornering with good feedback and response. Replaced around the 21000 mark which I think is OK considering rural roads, lot's of bends and the CRZ being front wheel drive Good online price as well and local NT branch very helpful and fitted them without problem

Nothing that I can think of

These tyres are really suited to the car. I did 168mph on the autobahn and the car was totally stable, conditions varied during a 3000 mile tour of Europe with harpin bends at speed with absolute confidence and traction control kicking in. I would recommend these to anyone driving on the roads but not driven in ice and snow as yet. You need winter tyres or even snow socks / chains if you do.

Good reliable tyres even when partly worn. They instill confidence in your driving, even in the wet. This is the second set of tyres I've replaced on the front. They both have averaged 15000 miles. The tyres on the back are still ok after 31000 miles.

cost obviously, but worth the extra. poor grip in snow.
