    Event are another Chinese "brand" of budget tyre, the problems come from the inconsistency in batch to batch rubber and the vulcanisation process some batches grip like baby poo to a blanket, others fall off the road if it has a camber!

    Bed them in and take it gently till you find their adhesion limits is probably the safest policy

    yeh good price, slightly cheaper than 215/50. Used to get that size on my laguna dynamique.
    I don't think they suit the vec, too small tyre wall IMO.
