Brilliant guidance from the guys at your Aylestone Road store. Can’t wait to get rid of the rear tyres and change them to Bridgestone.

Nothing other than the price! However they were very competitively priced..

Good price for a run flat tyre, especially the price for front ones.

Rear wider tyres nearly double the price of fronts. But happy withy purchase.

I like the idea that I can still drive on a flat, good in the knowledge when I embark on long journeys.

Tyre roar is quite loud... and ride is quite hard, the only downside to run flat tyres!

I tow a caravan and can found theses tyres offer outstanding traction. It has been possible to tow out of muddy fields with our front wheel drive car. Bridgestone are a popular original fit by many manufacturers and it would seam reasonable to replace the tyres like for like. The Bridgestone tyres I replaced had covered 35000 miles with 2.5mm of tread left with only been changed round once. I have bought budget tyres in the past but have found them to wear down withih 15000 miles if left on the front. I would definately recommend you consider Bridgestone tyres if you drive average distances.

Quite expensive and probably not worth it if your driving is mainly in a town and you cover a low annual mileage. Otherwise nothing.

Able to keep the same brand and Porsche approved by the factory, happy with the performance and price.

They dont seem to be available from National Tyres in the larger size for the rear when they need replacing.

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.
