This is quite ridiculous.
I don't recall Acceleras winning any tyre group tests. Doesn't mean that they are death traps, also doesn't mean that they may not be acceptable for some people in there own circumstances. If you like Acceleras, buy them and be happy. Why this constant need to try and make out that Acceleras are better than premium brands?
Where have i said they are better - just fed up with people claiming they are death traps (maybe not you) who've never even used them and purely scaremongering, putting others off based on hearsay
As the guy belows concurs if you have to drive like an idiot in the wet then it's quite possible there may be some benefit in premium brands, i've pushed these tyres far harder then i ever would drive normally to try and get them to fail and can't...for me that's good enough.
Of course its each to their own - i'd like to try the nankangs if they are fairly priced.....where did you get them ?
I will readily admit these tyres are seemingly NOT good on high powered rear wheel drive cars like BMW as research has highlighted.....as i'm not driving such a car this is of no concern of mine.
My honest assessment after 18months with these tyres
Dry Grip - as good as the premiums on before
Wet Grip - I've pushed the car to try and lose the grip, my bottle went before the tyre started twitching, tried this a couple of times and even on a greasy roundabout
Longevity - compound is harder so far better, 10k done with loads of thread left, last premium set went after 7k
If you are always on the edge then maybe this isnt for you if not like for many others they'll be absolutely fine
Have you tried them out of interest ?
