I drive a Saab 9-3 and have had these tires for 11,000 miles, mostly on country roads. They handle well in various conditions, providing a safe and comfortable ride. However, I've noticed significant wear after 18,000 km, which is disappointing. While they performed admirably up to this point, the rapid wear has made them feel less reliable. I drive mostly within speed limits and expected a longer lifespan. Despite this, their overall performance was good enough to consider them for future purchases, especially given their excellent handling and comfort.

Good quality, quiet, soft and resistant tire. It offers excellent rim protection and good cornering agility. I put on 4 new tires about a month ago to replace a Michelin Primacy 4. It was definitely an upgrade over the original tires, especially in terms of comfort and noise. When I need to change tires in the future, I'll certainly choose the same ones, I recommend them!

Driving a Peugeot 206 1.6, I recently switched from Conti Sport Contact 2 to these tires. My experience on Greek roads has been transformative. The Prime 4's grip is phenomenal, without needing warm-up, and my car's handling has improved dramatically. Compared to my previous tires, there's a noticeable decrease in fuel consumption at high speeds and less tire wear. The cornering stability and steering feedback are unmatched, making spirited drives a joy. They outperform the Sport Contact 2 by a significant margin, offering better speed limits and smoother rides. I bought these from a local retailer, and I'm thrilled with my choice.

Recently installed these tires on my Honda Civic, driving through a mix of city and highway roads. The Prime 4 has significantly enhanced my cars performance, especially in wet and dry conditions. Compared to my previous GYs, these are quieter and more comfortable. Even at lower temperatures, the grip remains impressive. The road feedback is spt-on, and fuel consumption has been slightly higher, but it's worth it for the stability and comfort these tires provide. Bought them online, and after 8000 km, I can confidently say I would purchase them again
