Passenger Car Summer Max Performance Tires Tire Review Highlights

Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 rated 97% while driving a Audi A4 3.0 TDi quattro remapped
Driving on a combination of roads for 1000 average miles
Changed from budget landsails to these, fantastic tire balance and feel of the car is great, very easy to control the car at the limit. Tire loads up nicely, in the wetter / colder weather with greasy roads it's made the car more liable to oversteer (only when pushing it) Really quiet tire

Michelin Pilot Sport 5 rated 92% while driving a BMW M140i
Driving on a combination of roads for 1500 average miles
Every M140i owner knows - due to the tire size we haven't got a lot of options in regards to tire choices. I originally opted for the Michelin Pilot Super Sports but these were shocking on all levels - which led me to take them off after two months. I then opted for a mixture of Goodyear F1 super sports on the front and Goodyear assymetric 6 on rear (heard rave reviews about both). They were both great having done 11k on them - the rears needed changing. This is when I changed to the Michelin PS5 - and WOW I am amazed at how good these are. They have transformed this car from sloppy handling having fear in corners to now having my foot on throttle. It is like a match made in heaven. Everything is better than the goodyears and pss i had before. I just wish I got them sooner - I was just skeptical after my trial with the pss

Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 rated 61% while driving a Vauxhall Corsa vxr
Driving on a combination of roads for 2500 spirited miles
I love the feel of these tires and I'd recommend them to anyone who wants ultimate grip in all conditions assuming they don't mind how quick they chew through them. I have had my fronts on now for 2500 miles and are at just over 2mm. I'll be lucky if I can get over 3k milage out of the set which I find disgusting for the price I paid for them

Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 rated 43% while driving a BMW 320i
Driving on a combination of roads for 8000 spirited miles
Performance wise it is a good tire, BUT.... This tires come as OEM on my BMW 3 series. Less than 10k km, the inner steel wires protruded at the sidewall, like an inch long of 10-20 wires. Went to Hankook to lodge a complaint and apparently they were 4 other BMWs came with issues. Hankook insisted its not factory defect but normal wear and tear. I rest my case. My first and last using Hankook.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S rated 57% while driving a Honda Civic 1.5T
Driving on mostly town for 600000 easy going miles
Factory set tire comes with my Civic 2020, on 30,000 km tire started to crack. But still manage to use till 60,000 km in very bad condition. Performance is good but can't last long.

Bridgestone Potenza S001 rated 42% while driving a BMW 730d
Driving on mostly motorways for 150 average miles
Shockingly bad in the wet. I have new 7 series xDrive. Tires were produced 8 weeks ago and fitted 2 weeks ago. Drove through roundabout at moderate speed in the rain, under steer (in xDrive!) and slides 1 meter almost crashing into another car on the round about. On the way back on motorway standard 70 mph, some rain and when chanting lanes back or the car lost grip twice (oversteer). Premium tires recommended as best for 7 series by BMW!!! Those are the worst tires I ever had and it costed me £1500 (rear tires wider and more expansive). Stay away from those.

Continental SportContact 7 rated 97% while driving a BMW m2
Driving on mostly country roads for 50 spirited miles
This is a continuation of a review I did a few months back on these tires, but this time for the rears of my BMW M2. Having found the fronts to be so good compared to the OEM fit Michelin Pilot Super Sports, I knew I would be getting these SportContact 7's for the rears when the time came...and three days ago that time came. I don't need to have had the tires on any longer than that to know the difference in traction off the line and also the grip they have under acceleration. Where the PSS's would be spinning up and I'd be pulling a higher gear or having to lift off, these things just stick incredibly well. It isn't particularly warm and they just have grip from turning the key, they don't need to be warmed up. Their other trick is on a wet road. They grip in the wet like its dry, and again where the PSS would spin I can almost pin the throttle on a wet road and it just sticks. They do of course break away when you are too aggressive under acceleration on a corner as any tire will, but the SC7's grip for longer and are perfectly predictable when the rear does go. Overall the best tire I have ever experienced on a car, and they are a bargain price when comparing them to Michelin's offerings. The confidence they give, and the inherent safety factor in the wet, is something no tire on the market can match at the moment especially when combined with their dry performance too. 11 out of 10. Fantastic!

Hankook Ventus S1 Evo Z K129 rated 70% while driving a Vauxhall Corsa vxr
Driving on a combination of roads for 12000 spirited miles
Good all round sports tire, feels good under braking and cornering. In the wet it's good but noticeably less grip than in the dry, which is good as I have found with some other tires in the wet they feel great and then fall off. This tire feels less competent in the wet but it let's you know that through the car and steering wheel so you know your limits. In comparison to the bridgestone s001 and toyo proxes that I've had on this vehicle I would say its the best for dry grip and all weather feel and in my opinion the wear is similar to the other two options aswel.

Bridgestone Potenza S001 rated 93% while driving a Audi A4 B9 sedan 3.0 TDi 200kw quattro
Driving on a combination of roads for 50000 spirited miles
Tire came with my Audi from factory and it as awesome. Lasted 5 summers - about 75k km. Drove across Europe, on autobahn and on Nirburgring. Will buy again this or the tire that replaced it - Potenza Sport - whichever I can get the best deal on.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rated 89% while driving a Skoda
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 spirited miles
Overall an excellent performance tire for warm / hot hatches, saloons, coupes, etc. Handling is very secure in all weathers, though naturally it prefers the warmer weather. Wear is pretty good for a sports tire.

Falken Azenis FK520 rated 95% while driving a Skoda
Driving on mostly town for 1500 average miles
Amazing in the dry! In the wet it's just as good. I faced a slippery road with good traction. From a comfortable end, it's very quiet. A little hard in potholes on the Greek roads, but the hard sides are to blame. However, they make the car feel like a train on rails when cornering. You feel like you've changed the suspension more sports. braking is perfect in the dry and in the wet. it warms up relatively quickly and then it's a different tire!
