    I've had them on all round for 12 months and have found no fault with them - and I like to corner fast and hard. Problem you might have now is getting them, the newer NT 8000's have taken over. I've heard mixed reports on those.

    Fabulous and great value. I'm on my second set on the other Vec

    http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Neuton/NT5000.htm

    The 5000 is still available and a good deal cheaper than the 8000, doesn't drone either.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Just swapped my VXR wheels which had NT5000's on them back over for my SRi wheels which have the Michellin Primacy HPs on them.

    However, the reason for doing this is the two front tyres were well below the legal limit and there was a screw embedded in one of the rears puncturing it so none of it the fault of the tyres.

    As objectively as possible, I'd say the NT5000's are good value for money (if you can still even get them), in the dry they grip the road like glue and are as good as almost any other tyre I've ever tried. In the wet however they are very skittish, have very little comparitive grip if you push the car harder and you do have to really calm your driving style down in the wet if like me you drive a car hard.

    That said the fronts lasted for about 14,000 miles ish (although they are pretty much like F1 slicks now) and as I said I drive very hard as a rule, the rears still have plenty of tread on them but it's unlikely I'll put them back on as one has a quite substantial puncture, so if/when I get my wheels re-furbed or changed for something else I'll just stick new tyres on all four.

    Would I buy NT5000's again? Honestly, yes I think I would, for the money I paid I thought they were superb and would give them an over all thumbs up rating out of five of:



    Most of that being lost for the poorer (but not diabolical) performance in the wet.

    I totaly agree with you there Ian, they do like to spin in the wet

    I've got the NT5000's on the front and a set of NT8000 on the rear and must admit the rear feels quite well planted but the fronts aren't all that brilliant in the wet Dry weather, on the other hand the 5000's are quite sticky
