    Great tires. Changed the back last August and done around 12K on them - showing very little wear at all. Excellent in the wet and responsive and full of grip on dry roads. Just ordered another two for the front now my Pirelli Scorpions have worn out - the Nokians are the best tire I've had on the Dodge, much better than the OEM Goodyear Eagle RSA.

    Given 70% while driving a Land Rover Freelander 2 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 18,000 average miles
    Got these tires back at the March 2016 and now middle of Jan 2017 they're down to 2mm & just about finished. Previous Hankook tires I'd had on a Hyundai Santa Fe were 30k + when I sold it on and they still had about 4mm of thread.
    Although they've preformed well in other ways I'm disappointed with how quickly they've worn in comparison the Hankook tires

    Given 71% while driving a Volvo XC90 2.5t AWD VOR (255/50 R19) on a combination of roads for 12,500 average miles
    I bought the car along with the tires, drove 20.000 km on them, and they are relatively good tires, getting a bit old and noisy, they have a good grip on dry roads, but on wet they feel slippery, especially with aquaplanning they don't do well. Don't know how new ones feel like, these are 2 years old. The ride is hard, but that might be due to low sidewall of the tire. Looking to replace them with Nokian Weatherproof SUV tires.

    Given 80% while driving a Mazda CX7 (235/60 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 16,000 spirited miles
    Very sporty tire, quite hard but precise handling. You can drive an SUV as an sport car. Because of spirited driving they wore out in three summers, driven approximately 25000 km. Very good in the wet (even with litle tread) and aquaplaning. Didn't have any truble with the tires, so yes i would buy again.
