    Default Neuton NT5000 long term review??

    So the Vec will be needing 4 new rubbers before too long, I've read ALL the info about these tyres, and am very tempted, but..........

    has anyone done any considerable mileage on a set yet?

    How well do they grip?

    How well do they wear?

    Do they get noisy over time?

    etc etc

    Should we say only people who've done at least 5k miles on them to comment???

    I have run through a full set and a pair of fronts so far on the Saab I used to own.

    I got typically 12K out of the premium brands such as Michelin, Continental etc, I got 9K out of Falken Ziex 912 but 20K out of the Neuton and never once did they feel skittish!

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Don't think I've done 5,000 on them yet, but I am doing nearly 200 a week now getting to and from work so it's quite possible.

    As far as I'm concerned, my original comments still stand.

    In the dry, they grip like glue, the car goes round corners like it's on rails (even driving errrmm "enthusiastically"). They're quiet and smooth to drive on and I have total confidence in them. I'd say in the dry they perform as well as the Michellin Primacy HP's I always used to use (which I never thought I'd hear myself say about a non-branded tyre).

    In the wet, they're not quite as good. They still grip and I'm still confident with them, but I definitely don't have quite as much faith in them in the wet as I used to with the Michellins although it's very quick and easy to just adjust your driving style slightly and I tend not to drive so "enthusiastically" as I used to in the wet any more. That said, they're not "bad" in the wet, just not quite as good as the Michellins I'm used to.

    Overall, very impressed and definitely glad I tried them out and will be getting more in the future if needed.

    Done about 5k on mine too - full set all round. Great in the dry, and only scrabble a bit when the turbo cuts in when wet (ok I pushed it and I am on 190bhp!).. but no issues for me in the wet either.
    Can't see the point of buying £120+ per tyre when these are available.

    Just hoping the price stays good, usually, when a brand gets this popular, price starts to match the tyre quality.
    Not done anywhere near the above limelage, but I agree with the reports. Only time I had trouble was when I pulled out a bit sharp onto a bypass. Had space but lorry was on a downhill charge, so wanted to get up to speed quickly - wondered why I wasn't gaining speed, then noticed front wheels were spinning

    ive done 9000 miles on my fronts and im running a mapped 2.8 v6 T signum ... the tyres are still going great.

    i have around 5mm of tread left and the grip is still as good as day one

    there not any noisier .... and im thouroghly impressed for the price and that they are considered a "budget" tyre ... there the best kept secret in the trade..

    compare this with the Sunni's that were on the front and moved to the rear .. wearing as well as the Fronts BUT getting excessively noisier and grip is rubbish ... i will be replacing them with another set of Neutons Before the End of October ... even though they still have shed loads of tread left .. they were a nightmare in the ice last year

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven

    pity they cant supply 235/35/19's though. the Neuton 225's are far too stretched on my 19 snowies, and the 245's would probably be too wide.

    Definitely liking the Neuton NT5000's though, so much so, i've just fitted them to my Clio Sport and i'm well impressed.

    They do normally have the 235's just that we caught them out buying so many in a week or two between several of us on here (I've got them on mine). Quite a few people have fitted the 245's though and not had any problems.
