Given 70% while driving a Citroën berlingo (175/70 R14 T) on mostly country roads for 5,000 average miles
Been running with two CP661s on the front since last year. Very satisfied with them for so reasonably priced a tire. Noticeably better grip in the wet than the Michelins they replaced. Rears need replacing now.. so Arrowspeed it is.

Given 83% while driving a Citroën C5 Estate (225/55 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
Had these fitted at my local Kwik-fit prior to touring England and Scotland had no problems on motorway runs and in some pretty apalling weather.

Tires made little noticeable road nose and fuel economy has remained good having checked pressures fortnightly.

As for wear rate will need to cover a few more miles to comment but there seems to be a good trade off grip to wear rate.

In summary I would buy these again!

Given 80% while driving a Toyota Yaris (185/60 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Drive a Toyota Yaris 1.3 VVTI 2008 model. The previous owner had Pirelli P6000 on the front and Yokohama at the back. On the MOT Advisory it said back tires perishing and the front tires near legal limit. Did not fancy points on me licence if I get stopped or the tires bursting so thought lets change them well before the next MOT. Live in London but was driving to Yate in Bristol. Thought whilst I am in Yate get them changed there and drive back 130 miles back to London and wear them in. Spoke to a nice chap in Kwik Fit in Yate and booked an appointment - was told prices over the phone and the Arrowspeed suited my budget. Some tires were £70 to £90 price range - Arrowspeed were £50 each. Was told Arrowspeed was a budget tire and part of the Goodyear group. Once fitted it totally changed the handling and the grip and was well impressed. Thought as a budget tire will have them on till next summer then go for some Pirelli's but think I will just get Arrowspeed as it drives better and does not break the bank. Dry grip is great, in the rain has good grip, Good feedback from tires, the tires have done 946 miles and has not been great weather recently but so far and no issues - only 1 thing is that doing 70mph on M4 tires are a little noisier than the previous ones. Would definitely buy these tires again. Lessons learnt do not let the big brands fool you.

What to know the BEST tires for 2023? Click to find out!
Given 66% while driving a Mitsubishi Spacestar (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 48,000 average miles
My yearly mileage is very high as I travel 70 miles per day for work and so my tires tend to wear out fast. So I opted for budget tires from Kwik Fit and got the Arrowspeed CP661. The road handling in the dry is good for the spacestar which is not the best anyway. The car tended to wallow a lot so cornering was always an issue, but the tires appear to handle the soft suspension. The only issues I had was the excessive wear on the inside of the front tires. The car itself was the issue with most handling but then it is a family car and designed for comfort and not throwing around corners like your on brands hatch. Overall, these are excellent budget tires for the high mileage non-sports type driving. If you drive like an idiot in a Bema, avoid these, they are not designed for your car or driving.

Given 87% while driving a Fiat Punto 1.2 8v (165/70 R14 T) on a combination of roads for 50,000 spirited miles
I have now had 2 full sets of these on my old Punto 1.2 & cover 25k miles a year.
They have proven to be really hard wearing and totally predictable in both wet and dry conditions. Fronts are lasting approx 25k and the rears I've just replaced lasted 50k +
For a light low powered car they're really good. Just replaced all 4 for under £200.

Given 84% while driving a Ford Focus mk2 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 7 spirited miles
Quick update on my last review bit loose for the first month now on 7,000 miles still full of tread and driving very well should last around 30,000 on front wheel drive .

Given 79% while driving a Ford Focus mk2 (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 5 spirited miles
As said before dont think these tires are made by nexen , cant really fault them for the average everyday driver stable in the wet , smooth enough in the dry and road noise the same as old conti tires taken off . Over all a very good buy for £51 per tire from kwik-fit wear rate seems very good as an added bonus .

Given 84% while driving a Vauxhall Corsa (185/65 R15 H) on mostly motorways for 30,000 average miles
I have had these tires fitted to my last 3 cars and will fit them to my current one very soon
I went for them first time because they are Kwitfit's budget option and I wonder if I will ever spend money on some of the Premium brands
my last set did 30,000 miles and could have probably done more
They were also quieter than the Firestone's which they replaced
I dont think you can go wrong with these I would rather these than any other budget tire

Given 80% while driving a Ford MONDEO (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 9,000 spirited miles
Firstly didn't know these were made by Nexen far as i know they are a tire sold only by Kwik-Fit made in Korea , was a bit wary about getting these as a few people were saying they were rubbish far from the truth. Fitted on the front of a mondeo driven on a combination of road as varying speeds in all types of weather, i don't chuck a car round corners but neither do i drive too slow on motorways ?? can honestly say these tires have never let me down not bad for £52 each . Also still full of tread after 9000 miles will be getting these again .
