Poor handling

Slee - July 2, 2020

Replaced tyres on mx5 nd and these tyres give very poor handling. I would have put on pilot sports but they didn’t come in the correct size. Costco recommended these but do NOT put on a mx5. I now need to replace all tyres back to factory spec. Waste of money.

Pity they don't last

Chris - April 2, 2020

I have no real complaints with these tyres that were original equipment on my BMW G31 5 series Touring MSport 2017. They didn't inspire confidence in any small amount of snow and they have worn badly (scrubbed on the nearside front and I must replace the fronts at 38000 km. I normally expect to get at least 50,000. I would prefer to have M&S tyres but I can't find any to fit.
