Hi Jon, do tyre's get harder with age? Does the ride comfort decrease over time? If so, roughly after how long?
Tyre Reviews (16 hours ago)
Tyres slowly harden with age, after 5 years there's a noticeable enough drop in grip for them to be replaced
Mohammed (17 hours ago)
+Tyre Reviews what happens after this period? Does the sidewall become hard?
Tyre Reviews (17 hours ago)
Tyre manufacturers recommend tyres not be used after 5 years

Any news on the rim protection on these tyres? For me, with smart 19inch alloys that would be a massive starting point. I have PS3's: great tyre and superb rim protection.
Martyn C (1 day ago)
+Tyre Reviews Many thanks for your reply. I am a little confused about rim protectors: Your review was on 235/35/19y, my tyre size. I would have assumed that the rim protector would be a feature in your review with a caveat that this may not be the same in different sizes? It would be interesting to get your viewer's feedback about importance of tyre features. For eg: is dry grip 1-10 against wet against ride comfort against cornering against rim protector etc, etc? Do you use feedback to weight how you provide content in your reviews - which are very good reviews. Thanks.

I recently had some new summer tyres fitted by a small local fitter. While waiting, I asked him about the validity of the EU tyre label. In his opninion, only the noise figure was trustworthy, but he didn't care much for the fuel consumption and wet grip labels explaining that those don't tell the whole story. How good a tyre performs also depends on the interaction with the vehicle they are fitted to. If that is so, wouldn't that label be a bit misleading? Might that also explain why a particular make and type of tyre could get a better score in one size and a less favourable one in another?
Jitter 000 (6 days ago)
+Tyre Reviews Thanks for your response. I did as you suggested and as I was looking at the test results of the 2018 Auto Bild test of summer tyres in the size I use, it struck me that a similar test on the same size done by the ADAC in 2017 yielded quite different results. Okay, some differences arise due to different weighting factors and there may be some newcomers too. So some shifting around, I can understand. But how come Autobild's no. 1 ends up almost at the bottom of the ADAC test despite being identical tyres (Hankook Ventus Prime 3 K125, 195/65R15 91V) and competing (more or less) with the same competitors?
Tyre Reviews (9 days ago)
Tyres are incredibly complicated pieces of engineering, and yes different vehicles can give slightly different results. The EU labels are a good STARTING point, but you should always referer back to tests and websites like tyrereviews.co.uk for the entire story.
Carlos Rodriguez (11 days ago)
Not sure why it's not mentioned here but I feel the Pirelli P Zero tire is the best tire of them all.
Tyre Reviews (11 days ago)
Pirelli make some great tyres, but they're not quite as good as the other premiums listed in the video, and are around the same price or more expensive. The video can only be a certain length which was why they were omitted. They're good tyres, just not the best for the money in my opinion.

I'll never buy Michelin tyres again. When I bought my car, it had 4 year old Michelin tyres on them. They just rode horrible, very noisy and no wet grip whatsever. A new set of Orimacy would have been so expensive, just switched to my winter tyres a bit earlier and bought summer tyres mid winter. Bought some Nexen N'Blue HD Plus and I am totally satisfied. Very good price, very good performance and very good mileage. Also quiet and comfortable. Did everything I expected from a tyre and lasted all summer, when I drove about 60k a year.

You should avoid the term SUMMER tires and study and investigate further the term RAIN TIRE. A summer tire is not necessarily a Rain tire. HOWEVER, ...... all RAIN tires are summer tires.
Tyre Reviews (12 days ago)
Uniroyal use the term rain tyre in their marketing, but a summer tyre is a generic term for a normal tyre, which does always work in the rain!

I have the Primacy 3. It is a great tyre and lasts approx. 50.000km. Im going to buy it again next summer.
Tyre Reviews (17 days ago)
Don't forget the Primacy 4 is now out too!
Atrax R (19 days ago)
I had Michelin Primacy 3 on my car when I bought it. Those tires could last you 10 years it seems, very little wear if you don't lean on them in extreme fashion. But they are quite shit as far as grip goes, even compared to way cheaper tires (like 50% cheaper). they are not dangerous but they are far from awesome in wet. Especially wet grip after two years or so. I do think they would outlast anything on the market today by a significant margin. Took off Primacy 3 last year and fitted Bridgestone Potenza Adrenaline RE002, night and day difference, anti aquaplaning stuff is very good on RE002. I have yet to aquaplane and they are worn to shit now. They don't last long though (220 treadwear), but pricing is good so that's not a big issue for me atm. So all in all, if you want wet grip past 2 years mark then don't bother with Primacy 3. They will last you way longer than you'd want to have a tire on your car, but they will grip accordingly too. Barely any in slightly wet conditions (when roads are a bit greasy). I'd do a passer on those tires if you have a bit heavier foot. But to each their own. It's just my opinion from my experience with these tires on 3 different cars. Only thing that impresses me with Primacy 3 is the treadwear, but price is a bit ridiculous for a tire of such performance imo.

You might like to try the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 next, it should have both treadwear and grip

Rob Booth Automotive (19 days ago)
Just switched from Primacy 3 to the Primacy 4. Seems like the sidewall is a bit softer on the new tire, as initial turn-in feels quite a bit more floaty. Does that correlate with your findings? Or perhaps it's just placebo and/or tire pressure differences.
Tyre Reviews (19 days ago)
A lot of tyres are going that way, you'll also have more block movement from the higher tread depth so they'll feel pretty bad.

Hey. I have a Mazda 2 and in need of new summer tyres. I can't decide between the Hankook ventus prime 3 and Dunlop sport max rt. I found them both at very reasonable prices. Which would you chose?
Paul Hojda (23 days ago)
Thanks for the reply. I've read that Hankooks, although good, usually have very soft side walls. I would like to preserve the mazda's sharp steering. Are the ventus primes good enough for that?
Tyre Reviews (24 days ago)
Both great tyres! As the RT has been replaced by the RT2 I would probably pick the newer Hankook.

What ...no Pirelli's? I'm genuinely shocked! Not because I like them particularly, more because I wanted to know where they sat in the grand scale of summer tyres. I'll be fitting summer wheels in April and I'm weighing up tyres other than the various generation Goodyear Eagle F1's I've been loyal to for the last 6 or 7 years. Also, Isn't Goodyear due a new tyre in the UHP category pretty soon?
Strawbs1962 (20 days ago)
+Tyre Reviews Let's hope Goodyear can retain my loyalty with their upgrade to the Assy 3. Thanks for sharing. Already subscribed.
Tyre Reviews (25 days ago)
For me, Pirelli sit below Michelin and Continental but are priced the same, so I didn't see space for them. They're not bad tyres, just not quite as good as the best. And yes, keep an eye on the channel early next year for exciting Goodyear news :)

Uniroyals 3 are ok on Octavia mostly motorway but I’m thinking 🤔 the hankooks will be better wearing quieter more fuel efficient on a smaller car like the Audi a1

jonathan mcadams (30 days ago)
+Tyre Reviews Oh I see. The General G maxx is a good tire. Period. Just drove a 650 gran sport with them and they have been on for 30k miles. They were recommended and the car rode very nice and was sticky in the rain. I found my favorite tire other than Pilot sports and Super sports. Imove 2 is ok for ultra cheap tirea you are going to ruin quickly.
Tyre Reviews (30 days ago)
Sadly we don't get that tyre in Europe :(
An average price for the Michelin P4S's are approx $475CAD tax in (Per/Tire) and the A/S 3's are approx $400-$450 tax in (Per/Tire) It sucks to buy anything for cars especially after market parts as by the time we buy something from the US at $1000USD it will be over $1500CAD+ after shipping, taxes, currency rate and duty!

Sadly good tyres aren't cheap :(
jonathan mcadams (1 month ago)
The stock tires on my 2014 Lexus Is 350 were Bridgestone Potenza 400...General G Max is a great alternative and are 10 decibals less noisy. Sometime like with windshield wipers, dependi g on what i am doing and how rough I am being on them, its cheaper to buy new every year or two with cheapies than to try and rotate a 1200 dollar set and keep them properly inflated with no patches for 6 years. I would rather have an offbrand knockoff with great tread when new and replace them before 60 percent 3 times than drive a pilot sport down to the treadbar for the same price and timespan.
jonathan mcadams (1 month ago)
+Tyre Reviews They are not too bad at 30 psi in the summer and mild winters here but yes you are right. Like I said if all 4 of my cars, and 1 bike, were not 18s except one I would put pilot sports on everything. The general g max is supposed to be good though. So is Firestone desti ation LE2 on my RX. i have the cheap tires on the Focus St right now. The Goodyear Eaglea that it came with were so so but pretty pricey. The Imove 2 by Hercules I replaced them with isnt too bad. Owned by cooper. The dunlops for the bike are 190 rear and 125 front. cant beat that. So actually.I only ride one car with offbrands, but I did order Versaelli Strada 2 tires for the stock 18s for the Is 350. When I get the G max on the vossens I will let you know how they are. Same with the Versellis but I will be using those during the winter. No snow just cold weather and lots oc driving back and forth to florida during winter for me. Sooooo in all I have 22 tires not including spares to take care of. You cant blaime me for trying to save. I have wrapped the pretty well considering I am 33 and dont live off my parents or anything.

After using Uniroyal Rainsport 3 for the first and last time I have to say it is not a good tyre. Made 15k km's mainly on the back of a BMW driving like a granny. If you drive fast you can kill a set in 5k km's. They provide imprecise steering and even over inflated the sidewalls look like balloons. Never more.

Excellent and very informative review but i think your list is incomplete!You've left out the Pirelli pzero pz4 which in my humble oppinion is a way better tyre than most of those you have included in your list of top 10 summer tires for 2018!
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
The PZ4 isn't a bad tyre, it's just not as good as the Michelin or the Conti and is priced around the same, so I didn't see the need to recommend it over those two.

kiwiasian (1 month ago)
I have a question about moving from a high performance tyre like the PS4 to a more road focused tyre like Primacy 4, is there a large trade off in handling for the comfort. I wouldn’t mind trading off a little handling at the top end for significantly more comfort over bumps, for example. What are your thoughts. I do like driving hard but also would really appreciate some more compliance.
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
I've not done the test back to back, but I believe the gap between the Primacy 4 and the PS4 would be fairly small in normal driving conditions. The Primacy 4 will certainly provide enough grip to drive hard too.

I choose Bridgestone Potenza s001 for my Civic type R. I think it is the one and only overal tire for this car. Also, i was use before the Michelin PS3 for two years. After am trying the Continental Sport Contanct 5. (realy very bad tyre for a Type R) with 20k kilometers and three times front-rear. I was thinking to try Dunlop sport max RT2 But I'm thinking again, no more time for experience, Potenza s001 is the tire for Civic type-R's. @Tyre Reviws I would like a comment from you about Potenza s001. thank you
Tyre Reviews (1 month ago)
I used to really like the S001 due to excellent steering feedback, but it seems recent iterations of the tyre have changed this, without improving the wet grip of the tyre.

Great compehensive review mate! I am reading some mixed reviews on Falken Azenis FK510's. Looking for some 225/45 R19 summer tires. You have them as third tire you would recommend. Any weak(er) points to this tire? (e.g. wear)
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Wear is unproven as of yet, but looks reasonable here: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Falken/Azenis-FK510.htm They do have softer sidewalls so not as sporty as some of the other tyres mentioned.

You say the difference between the 4 and 4S is so minor that they are 99% alike on the road, and the 4S Is a direct replacement for the PSS, yet I noticed the difference between the PSS and PS4 in Road Feedback is night and day, so how can the PS4S be a tyre that builds on the PSS if the road feedback difference is so huge between the PSS and PS4? Hope the question makes sense. I've had 3 pairs of PSS, and only recently put on the PS4 since the PS4s didn't come in 225/40/18.

hello.. i'am from Chile and i have a serious question about the weight in this comparison, cause normally we see Youtube,s demonstrations on car with 1800 kilos, but isn't the same contact to the road, with an hatchback car ( 1400 kls average). 88w 91w 94w or 88Y 91Y 94Y etc etc.. If you know about the behavior of the compounds, weights, adhesions would be very helpful. Greetings (btw i have a Astra J OPC b20nft)

Remember that recommended pressures change with weight to slightly counter the footprint change.

If i want a sporty yet comfortable tyre that has very good grip, which would be better? the F1 asy3 or the Prime 3, because they sound very similair, are similair money and both seem to wear well aswell.
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
I'd probably go for the Asym 3

I have the Conti`s on Porsche Cayman S and they work great in all conditions. 265/35/19 out back and 235/35/19 at front.  Well priced too.

I have a BMW 1 series M Sport convertible and it has Bridgestone runflats on the rear and Michelin runflats on the front, what specific runflats would you recommend? I really don’t want normal tyres as there is no room for a spare (rears are a different size to the fronts) and I’ve had experience of tyre foam and I really don’t want to go down that route
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Bridgestone Driveguard and the Falken FK510 Runflats seem to be the class leading runflats at the moment.

I agree with Michelin and Continental, but the Falken tires are too noisy and wear poorly.
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Have you tried the specific pattern I recommend? They've improved a lot

Thanks for review. What about Nitto Invo and Dunlop SP Sport MAXX 050+ they are selling very good in middle east (hottest climate)
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Sadly we don't get either tyre in the UK so I've no experience with them :(

Towards the end of their life, the Primacy 3, for me at least, lost all its grip, especially in the wet - they went completely off a cliff. 2 sets did the same thing once it got down to around 3mm
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Sadly a lot of tyres do, the Primacy 4 has improved on this a lot though.

What you will recommend between Dunlop blusport response and goodyear efficentgrip? Thanks
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
They're very similar tyres, but generally the Goodyear tests a tiny bit better.

I got the Falken Ziex ZE310 and they are great, the only problem is that i dont know what pressure i should have on them... 205/55 R16 91V, currently i have 2,7Bar on all the wheels, wich is probably a bit high
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
They should be set to your vehicle manufacturer pressures then balance from there :)

Which one will you recommend for a 2018 Mazda CX-5? Mostly driving in wet with occasional use in snow.
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
If you need snow performance you need an all season tyre, the Michelin CrossClimate is most likely.
Adrian Violi (2 months ago)
Awesome review. Just changed from Goodyear F1 A3s on my Focus ST to Pilot Sport 4's. When I bought the car, I was amazed with the way it turned into a corner. I've actually noticed it scrubs wide a little more now with the Michelin. So was freaking out I'd made the wrong choice after hearing such great things. But, I feel more grip everywhere else than the F1s and braking is better. The F1s were wrecked when I did change them so maybe a new set might have felt amazing but decided to go with the PS4. I do miss the turn in though...

Is there any plan in doing a similar video for the best run flat tyres? I have a BMW F30 with staggered tyres that will need new tyres in the next couple of months and I don't know what to choose, any suggestions? Thank you!
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Have a look into the Bridgestone drive guard or new falken run flats :)
Jorge Jiménez (2 months ago)
+Tyre Reviews Good luck with the test! What about any suggestions for me for new tyres?
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
There are plans for a runflat tyre test, but getting it done is proving difficult!

P Zero? Potenza?
Tyre Reviews (2 months ago)
Bridgestone don't have a good UHP tyre, the P Zero is good but not quite as good as those listed in the video.

I just ordered 4x Bridgestone Turanza T005 (225/45 R17) for my VW Golf VII 1.8 TSI (170 HP) - I got these tires for 67,90 GBP per tire, here in Poland, it was my local tire-shop who made me that offer. It's even a bit cheaper than the cheapest resellers on the web, here in Poland, so I'm quite happy.

Pilot sport 4 or super sports. Can't get 4s in a 225 fitment
Tyre Reviews (3 months ago)
Personally I'd probably go for the PSS as I regard dry handling and steering feel above everything else! Your preferences might be different though.
Jameson Hernan (3 months ago)
I'm running a 225 40 18 on my 340bhp gt86. I'm looking for a good all round tyre. Would you say the trade off on ultimate dry grip of the pss if bad in the wet? Or would the ps4 be a better daily choice?
Tyre Reviews (3 months ago)
PSS for ultimate dry handling, PS4 will give you better wet grip and comfort.
