These have been great summer tires for me so far! I drive about 55mi round trip every day and the wear has been very reasonable, just barely have the new broke off them after a few thousand miles. They grip pretty well for hard cornering, but I can sill break the rear loose with a heavy foot in a 460hp 4000lb car, so they're not the stickiest but more than sufficient for a cheap summer option tire. They ride quiet and soft, too.

I've had these tires on my car since July 2018 and can say the treadwear has been outstanding. No tire noise to speak of and they handle pretty darn good. My only complaint is wet traction from a take off. After a rain when the roads are still wet the tires spin on even a gentle take off from a stop sign or red light.

These tire are very nice looking tires. They ride very smooth and give my car a nice driving experienced. I did not experienced much on wet conditions, but they do great in dry surface. To my opinion, they worn out a little too fast, however, I do own an all wheel drive car. Overall, tires are great for the price and I will totally recommend them.

Great tire at a good price. Drive a Subaru WRX, these tires handle well on any road wet or dry and are the quiet. Less than 1,000 miles on them so don't know about tread life yet.

Great budget tire for summer driving, unfortunately I was stuck running these tires all winter(which of course isn't recommended) They did ok as far as dry/wet traction (just don't get caught in a snow storm, not good). They did end up cracking some due to being in the cold,as expected. I'm a little over 15k miles on them and plenty of tread life left, even after the cold weather abuse. If you are looking for a cheap performance summer tire, you can't go wrong

Part Number: 430066 is Nokian 'zLine A/S' (All-Season), not 'zLine', which are summer tires. I got these tires not knowing that they were 'A/S's. I decided to keep them and mounted them on the rear, even though, living in Texas, I don't need all season tires. I have zlines on the front which perform extremely well. The handling would have been better in hard maneuvers if I'd kept zLines on both axles. You always give up some performance with all-season tires. But, overall, they perform well and I would not expect them to be too much different than zLines.

These tires went on wife's Mini. Initial impression is that they are at least equivalent to the Michelins that they replaced.

Thus far, other than Ride Handling & Ride Noise, to which I have commented above, I haven't driven enough aggressive miles to comment upon the other categories. However, I am quite pleased with the tires and the tire purchase process. As regards the handling qualifications I am expecting the handling experiences to be superior.

Get technical:

The Nokian zLine is a summer tire specially designed for drivers who want superior performance under extreme conditions. It provides reliable responsiveness and precise handling which is very important when driving under the varying weather in North America. The new generation tread compound is specially developed to for safe operation at extreme limits. The swoop grooves give the tires excellent grip on wet road surfaces all while reducing the risk of hydroplaning. To help stabilize driving on the road are the deep, diagonal grooves located at the ribs just right beside the tire™s inner shoulder. The rigid inside and outside shoulder connect to each other with blocks that are molded together with longitudinal ribs. Enhancing this further are the wide ribs which make the tires stiff and minimize block movement when in contact with the road.



Features & Benefits

  • Hydro Grooves to guide water out of the tires and prevent risk of aquaplaning

  • Molded with rubber compound which works well under a wide range of temperatures and maximizes grip on wet road surfaces
