    Totally transformed my Volvo S80 V8 AWD UK & Ireland, March 7, 2017 These tyres turned my car from a "wallowing boat" into a precision driving instrument. True, the ride is not as comfortable as it was before, but prefer better handling to ride comfort any day. Highly recommend.

    Amazingly quiet and totally planted in wet weather UK & Ireland, February 23, 2016 I changed the tyres on my Qashqai 4x4 a couple of weeks before driving to the French Alps to go skiing. The previous tyres (Continental EcoContacts) were pretty good but down to the limit as I had wanted to change all four at the sames time because of the 4WD system. The new tyres are noticably quieter, but more impressively, superbly stable in the wet. Down around Geneva we have some of the heaviest rain and side winds that I have ever driven in but, only having a couple of hours leeway to get into our apartment before the reception closed, we had to press on. I have to say that the car felt amazingly stable with no hint of aqua planing even at 110 kmh with horizontal rain from right to left. Time will tell with the economy but for safety and relaxed quietness I would not hesitate to recommend these tyres.
