while driving a
(185/65 R14) on
a combination of roads
For it's price it's 10/10.
Driving them for 1,5y (~15 000km) on a secondary/weekend car. Was driving on all types of roads, non asphalted, dirty rocky roads and through many potholes (F* Balkan roads). In dry conditions grip is good (actually very good) handling too but on very high temperatures (40+ °C summers) it's easy to loss a bit of grip with aggressive driving on rears but nothing dramatic just slight drift so 9 for grip and handling on dry.
Wet conditions F* amazing. Handling and braking is excellent though one thing if there's a lot of water on the road or it's raining really heavy staring becomes a bit heavier (again nothing to worry about) and actually i become liking that feel because in my opinion driver is geting more control and it's harder to oversteer and so to lose control. In such weather they are becoming noticeably louder (little bit annoying humming sound) so 9 again. Generally they are very quiet except in heavy rain.
They are doing fine about potholes(here's a lot of 'em) no deformation or what so ever. Not that quite on hitting them but again not much loud also doing fine job on suspending hits.
Snow, pleasant surprise again. Wet snow fine, breakin is excellent, handling too startin grip not sooooo good but still doable. No problem with acceleration. Dry snow same just without issues with starting grip and a bit better handling, breaking feels same.
Ice, ok this is tricky territory. I don't know any tire that's particularly good on it unless it's hardened with metal crampons (forbidden in my country) so i'll compare them with winter continental one I have on other car (195/65/R15).
Handling is actually good, i managed to go through completely frozen downhill with a lot of control and with breaking so let's say it's a good pass. Starting on ice isn't soo easy but experienced drivers shouldn't struggle. Grade 7
Only unpleasant situations was accidentally breaking on fresh mud on asphalted highway (mud was 2-3cm tick because truck carrying wet soil from construction site had accident with container door), not sure any tire (except those for off road jeep exclusive ones) would do any better.
For ALL-Season tires they are excellent. I buy them because i don't have room to store another set of tires and was very sceptical but after 100km my scepticism gone and i was thrilled.
Definitely buying them again except if somting better comes at same price.
I wouldn't recommend all-season tires for those how live in climate with heavy snowy winter (Scandinavia) or for those living in mountains, and definitely not for south Europe(Greece, South Italy, Spain) /Middle east countries with extremely hot summers, tires won't last long. But those in west/middle Europe with moderate winters and not extreme summers go ahead. Hope this helps.
