while driving a
(215/50 R17 W) on
Normally I have a set of summer and winter tires, but since the winters in the Netherlands are not that severe I deceided to buy beside the summer tires all season tires instead of winter tires. Another avantage is that the time I will change them for the wider summer tires is not that important. Standard my Focus (MK IV, 1.5 182 BHP) is eqquiped with 235/40-18 rims ET55, the std 17" has an ET of 50. Until now, I have driven the Klebers for approx 4000 kms and I am extremely positive about them. The all seasons are much quiter than the Conti Prenium Contact 6 tires, more comfortable, but strangly the feedback is as good as the Conti's if not even better. After 4000 kms the wear is not noticible. Mechanic grip is superb, and in the wet I have't experienced any problems. In february their was a lot of snow and ice. Immidiateley a lot off traffic problems, but the Klebers managed the snow without any problems, only a few days later when the snow turned to ice the grip was not perfect, but still good enough. I can only recommand these tires, they are much better then their price would indicate! By the way, Kleber is owned by Michelin, which should say enough.
