    no worse than any similarly priced tyres .... just need to give yourself a slightly longer stopping distance compared to a tyre that costs twice as much

    i dont have too many issues with mine - you adjust your driving for the prevailing conditions and you will be ok

    They can't be as bad as the Sunny's i've got on my 19's, like driving on ice in the wet. Very good in the dry though

    unlike other budget tyres there not noisy in the dry and wear well in all conditons
    you just need to be sensible in the wet - not unlike most other tyres ....

    in the winter i found them better than the pirelli p zero as the pirelli is rated as a summer tyre whereas these are an all year one
    they seem ok with circa 270-280 bhp on them

    Since switching from Michellin Primacy HP's to the Neuton NT5000's my ONLY complaint about the Neutons is the higher speed corner handling in the wet. In the dry they are superb, but in the wet there is a noticeable difference between the Michellins and the Neutons. But then the Michellins are well over £200 a corner compared to £88 a corner for the Neutons.

    Overall I'm extremely impressed with the Neutons so far though.

    Despite the torrential rain today I drove as I allways do...noticed no difference at all.
