Brilliant tire if in the wet you are amused by wheelspin, sliding around and ESP systems going crazy. Fine in the dry but downright dangerous in the wet. You effectively are forced to drive everywhere at the pace of your stereotypical 80 year old Rover driver in order to make safe progress.

Had these tires on the rear of my car for approximately 8 months, car has always been extremely tail happy in the wet which I found puzzling for an AWD car. It was only when my front tires needed replacing and I moved these Autogrips to the front did I realise how shocking they are. My previous front tires were absolutely nothing special at all but I got caught out a few times plowing into the opposite lane driving at my normal driving speed after moving these to the front. You do not have to be driving like a maniac for these to slide, it's genuinely impressive that they managed to make a tire this awful and is still legal. When they were on the back of my car I've no doubt people have seen me sliding around thinking I'm the local boy racer when in reality I'm just trying to get to my destination.

Positives are they are fairly quiet, and don't seem to have worn down at all since fitting them. I suppose if you were doing motorway driving (and only motorway driving) they would probably be fine if you really can't afford another £20 a corner for something decent.

In short, they are great if you want the excitement of near death expreiences every time it rains, not so great if you like being able to keep up with traffic without crashing.

Just another review to confirm what everyone else is saying. Hopefully this can actually save someone’s car/life. These tires were fitted to a set of wheel that I purchased and I decided to keep them as they had some amount of thread left so I get my money’s worth. I had them on for about 10 days in the dry and thought they are alright. Nothing special but will get the job done. Oh how wrong I was... These tires are outright dangerous in the wet. I nearly crashed my car 3 times with these tires. I don’t have a powerful car or an aggressive driving style. Incident one was in a large roundabout doing about 20mph - the rear end just went. No warning whatsoever. I put it to me going too fast or an oil patch. Incident two was once again a roundabout - I again thought I’m going too fast. Incident three is what made me decide these are coming off - B class road where I make a slight turn - the rear of my front wheel drive Civic simply slid out. VSA (Honda ESC) managed to save me and the car. Overall if you take one thing from this, please get rid of these tires ASAP. Even if you only do the grocery run with them. Don’t be a cheapskate and wait for the thread. You might just save your life and your car. No idea how these are legal.

Given 21% while driving a MG ZR (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 100 spirited miles
Bought these tires a few weeks back, going against reading the bad reviews on this very website as I thought "how bad can they be?, they must be eu approved". Well how EXTREMELY wrong I was.

I had driven no less then 20 miles on these tires fitted to the rear of my vehicle. Gripped fine in the dry, absolutely fine. As soon as there was rain it was like driving on ice.

One day I was coming home from work, took a corner I have took multiple times over the last few years before at my usual speed in wet conditions. These tires gave way, shot my rear end into a mad sliding frenzy, snapped back and shot my car the total wrong way. I ended up hitting a 2ft barrier, on the wrong side of the road. My car was a total write off, front end fully smashed in. I am extremely angry but I have no one to blame but myself for ignoring advice. These tires are NOT safe at all.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not buy or fit these death traps to any vehicle, especially with children, luckily I was okay. Shame about my car. I have pictures of my vehicle and these tires fitted to the rear should anyone want to see what these tires do. NEVER AGAIN.

email me at should you wish to see. Thanks

Given 38% while driving a (205/50 R17) on mostly country roads for 15 average miles
Only driven with these tires for approx 1 hour, these are absolutely dangerous in the wet. Like driving on black ice. I'm now forced to take way more caution around roundabouts / tight bends. These tires need to be taken off the market.

Given 37% while driving a Fiat 500 (185/55 R15) on mostly town for 1,000 easy going miles
Came on used Fiat 500 car with a lot of tread depth. Basically sound until cold winter day with sleet falling. Came to a gentle right hander at 20 mph that I have driven for years in all conditions and car simply let go. Never experienced anything like it in 30 years driving. Might as well been on ice. Car driveable but write off.

Do not buy these tires. If fitted change them now before someone dies.

Given 40% while driving a Volkswagen Passat Estate 2.0 TDI (170) (235/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
All that others have said really.

Put on if you like near death experiences in the wet.

Don't wait for them to wear out to get rid of them. They will never wear down. Horrible compound and flabby weak structure will have your fingers embedded in the steering wheel from fear.

Given 36% while driving a Volkswagen EOS (235/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 200,000 miles
Bought a used car that came with these fitted. Why anyone would fit them to a 200bhp car is beyond me. Awful in the wet, you can’t accelerate either from stopped or to overtake without the wheels spinning. The slightest bit of frost and they are outright dangerous. Had them changed out for safety reasons for winter.

These tires are fitted to the rear of my RWD is250. The front tires are Autogrip P308s. All four were fitted by the previous owner.

Dry grip: My driving style is quite gentle, and the tire grip in dry conditions is good - nothing special, but good. I can drive with reasonable speed and the tires cope well.

Wet Grip: This is where things appear to go wrong. I have been driving for over 23 years. I have driven multiple types of car, both manual and auto, front and rear wheel drive ... but I have never known tires to have so little grip in the wet. The F107s fitted to the rear of my car are an eye-opener. Incident #1: making a left-hand turn at a junction, in wet conditions, at approximately 5-10mph - I applied light throttle power, and the stability control kicks in/starts bleeping .... what the ......?! I put the incident to the back of my mind. Incident #2, a month later: carefully negotiating a large roundabout at 15-20mph, in moderately wet conditions ... I apply light throttle ..... the tail steps out approx 20 degrees, and the stability control kicks in ... thank God there were no cars alongside me! This can't be right?! There was no warning .... the back end just went! I will have to drive very slowly in the wet from now on. The front tires (P308s) seem to be better in the wet. I have driven a RWD W124 Mercedes in the wet ... with completely different tires ..... no sliding ....

Wear rate: good - the tire compound must be quite hard .... hence the above problems!

Comfort: reasonable. Maybe a tad firm!

Conclusion: A reasonably good dry weather tire with a good wear rate ... but I wouldn't trust these tires in the wet!

I'm puzzled. If all tires have to be made to a particular standard, just how low is the bar set? These were on the car when I bought it. If you like excitement and thrills at remarkably low speeds in the wet, then these will be ideal. Otherwise - buy something else. Like a Spacehopper or a Pogo stick.

Given 25% while driving a Fiat Grande Punto 1.9 sporting (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Had these on the rear with some Falkens on the front. For a laugh, whilst doing a trackday I took the car out for a session at donington park in the wet; it was utterly terrifying. Snap oversteer at pedestrian speeds. Highlighted just how poor these budget tires really are - I'm replacing all 4.

Given 51% while driving a Vauxhall (235/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
We run 3 rear drive cars which are used on road and track. One car has these tires fitted. The car can only go out on the track in totally dry conditions, whereupon good competitive speed can be achieved but still with rear wheel burnout above 200bhp. In the wet on public roads at 20mph , in neutral gear, the car can go into oversteer. Conclusion good tires for drifting off the public highway. Dangerous on the public highway in anything but dry. In my opinion only suitable road with a great deal of care and skill !

I see a lot of negative feedback about this tires I own a Toyota avensis and had my tires changed recently,originally I used 215/50/17 but I bought the Autogrip Grip 200 in 225/45/17 and what a smooth and comfortable drive. Wet or dry conditions the tires brake like a gem. Will definitely buy them again once they worn out. Am in Africa by the way,RSA.

Volvo v70 D5 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
These combined with some Fullrun tires on the front (I tried switching them around but always the same tire on the same axle) show them to be a truly dreadful tire with very poor wet weather performance. My car came with these, fitted by the previous owner for whom "a tire is a tire": wrong.

Fitted to a torquey car, these had negligible wet grip and couldn't put any power down at all: junctions became a nightmare and cornering grip was dreadful. They would even lose traction accelerating at 60mph in the wet. I am no boy racer, driving a Volvo V70 D5 but these tires are borderline dangerous regardless of how light-footed you are.

I am not of the 'must buy premium' persuasion and regularly use Hankook and Barum tires - these are a different matter. Regardless of price, no sane person would compromise safety to the extent that these 'black circles of death' ask you to.

At the risk of repeating, I am not heavy footed or a boy racer and I 'drive to the conditions': these tires are however, bordering on dangerous. You have been warned.
