    I got them on my vec sri all round they were on it when I bought it 18 months ago virtually new at the time, I find they drum a little but my main complaint is that I get wheel spin in the wet when pulling away from junctions,more then any other tyre I've had before

    Had them on my last car, they were pretty good for a mid range budget tyre. They are made by Continental.

    I know a few Taxi drivers that run Barums, but they say its due to the mileage they get out of them, so that would make me think hard compound, and poor grip.
