Ian - 24th January, 2016

I've been fitting the Barum Bravuris tyres for ten years now and have been extremely happy with their attributes. I don't think you can get a much better tyre for the money, these are earthing you need unless you tell want to push the tyres looks of adhesion.

Having had "cheap" tyres which provided significantly less grip, I was pleasantly surprised at the grip levels offered from this brand.

Been using these tyres for several years on both my cars. I find them really good for the price. If I owned a Ferrari and a Porsche I would buy different tyres.

I have had these tyres previously and found them to be a very good all round everyday tyre. The local garage at Bishop Auckland Managed by Paul were very good, helpful and would recommend this service to other car owners.

Steve - 25th August, 2013

My Volvo is VERY heavy on front tyres - big heavy front wheel drive automatic car and I live in High Wycombe which is full of hills. I used to use Michelin Pilot Sport 3 (at £130 a corner) and reckoned on 10-12000 miles for fronts. These tyres (~£85 a corner) did 16000 on the last set and I'm confident the ones I just put on will do the same. Road noise is the same. Handling is the same (hey it's a Volvo not an M5 so I'm not doing Jeremy Clarkson impressions here). However I'm not carrying a Michelin brand to impress my friends. I think my ego can cope with that. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Nothing else to say about the tyres but would just like to say that the team at the fitting station were friendly, helpful, efficient and a credit to your company.

Not fully tested yet in the wet, but so far appear to be a very good value tyre

Seem to be a good tyre , not tried them in the winter yet , a little loud on some roads but not annoying

Michael Rego - 12th August, 2013

My last set achieved 34,000 miles with no problems. Towards the end they wore at the edges. Tyres are a bit noisy at first but with little wear go quieter. Thanks.

A GOOD QUALITY BUDGET TYRE

Martin Robinson - 8th August, 2013

I am now having to replace two of these tyres on the front axle after 19000 miles of 'spirited' driving, including cornering. They are very good at going round corners. However, on a few occasions, going over a bump or dip, on a long fast bend, the car has twitched rather unnervingly. This is not a characteristic of the car, it is definitely these tyres. It is rather scary when it happens, and you wonder what would have happened if you had been going a bit faster. I have not been in a potential aquaplaning situation so I don't know what they would be like, but I would expect them to be fine as they are very good in the wet.

Don't impart the same feeling of the road as Continental Sports on previously, but quieter and cheaper.

Second set I've had, one set on 2.2 Astra driven hard, great behaviour and good wear, this set seem to be performing equally well. Not interested in tyre snobbery just performance and price.

Specified for Mercedes, low price
5 out of 10


Ray Wheeler - 14th September, 2012

I had to replace the front tyres only due to excessive wear. They appear to me to be clones of the Continental tyres fitted by Fiat so I was very happy as I only fitted two tyres and didn't want them to 'stand out' as replacements. They're certainly quieter than the Continentals, great when on motorway journeys. I can't comment on tyre wear as I haven't done that much driving recently but if I achieve any where near as much as the originals I'll be thrilled, particularly as the price I paid was so competitive.

Robert Petts - 4th September, 2012

They are so good you would be daft not to recommend The Barum brand. So good that i used your service to fit the same tyres on my sons car.
10 out of 10


Mike King - 3rd September, 2012

I have had Michelin and Dunlop tyres on this car in the past but Barum tyres are by far the quietest of all. I like the tread depth at the outer edge and feel that managing these tyres I will get good mileage. I generally swap tyres from front to back to minimise shoulder wear every 3 - 4 months and believe I could exceed 20,000 miles on this set.

John Oxley - 31st August, 2012

Great tyre feel as good as the original Continentals if not quieter, and will fit to the Front wheels when required.

J W Johnson - 30th August, 2012

probably not the best person to ask on mileage and age factors. But completely satisfied. no complaints at all.

Richard - 29th August, 2012

Drive mostly on the highland roads of Scotland (rough), I drive approx half the miles of the tyres life, Quickly. They would last longer if I drove slower but the roads are so nice and twisty (and rough), so could have the potential of lasting double or triple our average on motorways and around town. (30 thou?) Grip is fine, so is the noise, as for pointing where you want it? its a peugeot estate, so yes it does go where you point it with these tyres on, cant see the point of spending 3 times the price on michelin or continental when you can kill them on our rough roads so easy, yes ours only lasted 14 months but for the price its nice to know you have new carcases on for the winter, oh yer they were ok on or slopping drive in the snow too, they 'were' new. Thats why we replaced like for like, and no doubt will do exactly the same next Autumn. 10 outta 10 or 5 star. I also drive a rally car and a thou superbike!

Unexpectedly brilliant at an excellent price.

Bob Prescott - 29th August, 2012

I haven't really done a huge amount of mileage since I got them but have been to france so did some higher speed motoring and the were very good. The lads at the fitting centre were brilliant I will definately get tyres from your company again which will be within 2/3 months.
10 out of 10


Paul - 25th August, 2012

Probably the best tyres for the price I paid @ £360 for four. Premium too expensive @ approx £550-£650. Great wear considering I've done 6.5k on them already. Fairly quiet at first but even quieter after 1000 miles. Only drawback is the sidewalls are too soft which makes the car roll at anything above normal speed. I'm not talking about excessive speed but a bend that could be taken effortlessly at 60mph on premium tyres such as Dunlop has me lifting off when the car leans. Strangely enough I have never skidded or lost control but there is just a moment when cornering that the car seems to lean normally and then lean again. The closest description is like having a load of liquid on board which reacts a little later than the first motion and is quite offputting. Having said that most of the time I drive at a fairly sedate pace and these tyres are perfect but if I want to 'push it' a little they don't inspire confidence. For the everyday driver; well worth the money; boy racer...you'll be the wrong side of a hedge.

Barry Thomas - 22nd August, 2012

Not had them on long enough to see how they wear. Very good all-round tyre. Excellent dry grip. Much quieter than the Pirelli's they replace. Excellent value for money.
10 out of 10


- 21st August, 2012

I replaced a pair of worn but legal Pirelli's with the Barum's and the difference was noticable upon leaving the fitting bay. My car accelerates better, it is quieter and generally feels as though it drives better, I would definitely buy these again.

Charlotte Coombs - 20th August, 2012

For budget tyres they perform very well and their wear rate is more than adequate

I have always driven on Pirelli tyres previously (discounted as an employee),but since retirement they are too expensive.These are the first Barum tyres I have used and I find them noticeably qieter than Pirellis.So far ,I can`t find fault with Barum tyres in any respect.Very satisfied.

Adam Hall - 25th July, 2012

Great tires all in all, haven't had a single issue with them at all. Very grippy in the dry, can't shake them loose at all under power cornering (full 200bhp going through rear wheels).
10 out of 10


Dan - 25th July, 2012

These feel ok, not as sharp as the Michelin Pilots they replaced but at this price its to be expected. If your not a quick driver these will be great. I think I'll go back to premium brands next.

They are good value for money.However, I would recommend that you have your tracking checked on a regular basis as failure to do so can result in excessive wearing of the tyres

Rob - 21st May, 2012

I did some research before buying these, as I didn't want to end up with the usual rubbish quality when buying budget tyres. I have to say...the research payed off. In my opinion, these Tyres are fantastic and offer quality, grip and ride that far exceeds the price tag. I will be buying with tyre shopper next time, as it is simple to use and excellent value for money. I had no problems what so ever. Brilliant!

Robbie - 5th May, 2012

This is the first time I have purchased budget tyres and have been pleasantly suprised. Compaired to the premium brand tyres fitted as originals they were a little over half the price, the handling is not quite as sharp as on the originals but equally these tyres have more of a "baloon" feel which provides a more comfortable ride. The insignia SRi has hard suspension and is a noisy car - these tyres help ease these features, and give a great price benefit. After c.10,000 miles the wear is hardly noticeable so I am hoping to achieve my usual 30,000 miles before replacement.

peter murtagh - 15th April, 2012

the tyre seems a reasonable balance of price/quality ; I have used this make on my other car, a older Astra, where they perform better, but then the Astra holds the road better and is a more stable and easy ride than the Kia which I find to be heavy and less responsive.
6 out of 10


Alan Kelly - 13th April, 2012

Very pleased with the tyres, I believe that they are made by Continental which I had on the car when I bought it new. So I know how good continental are.

Seem like a good set of tyres. Had Continental SP tyres before can't reall tell the difference. Too early to say how hard wearing they are. Would recommend this tyre as good value for money and performance.

Gerold Alexander Rowbury - 8th April, 2012

Barum tyres are by far the best value for money tyres I have experianced. There was a period when you hadn't got Barums in my size, so I looked elsewhere,even though I like the price and service Tyre Shopper offers. I have recomended Tyre Shopper and Barum tyres to many people. Keep Barums as an option always, then you'll always have me as a customer.

George Farrow - 20th March, 2012

I was very pleased with the 2 rear tyres purchased, but with less than 4000 miles I got a puncture in our local high street. At first I couldn't find the puncture, eventually finding a 50mm split on the inside of the tyre. I took it back to N/Tyres whoe said they had not seen this before, but said I would have to buy a new tyre. They have agreed to send it back to the manufacturer, and I will update when I get their answer.

The tyres are very good most of the time but on motorways at high speed they feel like the car is weaving, so in the future i will not be buying these tyres again for an S2000. I am sure they are fine on a normal family car though.

chris - 29th February, 2012

I have fitted two of these tyres to the rear of my front wheel drive car, which does about 95% motorway miles (80 per day) and have had no problems so far. Certainly the price is very attractive and wear seems to be good, although not much expected when car is front wheel drive anyway. I would use these again.

seems to be a very good tyre for the price. I was told that a lot of taxi drives use this make so hodefully they should last well. Very low noise and smooth. Brake and corner well but can lose grip when accelerating from a junction in the wet. All in all, i am very happy so far.

B D Humphries - 9th February, 2012

Very pleased with these tyres so far. I feel that perhaps the sidewalls are a little softer than my previous Continental tyres which smooths out rougher roads more readily giving a smooth ride. This factor though probably takes a little handling ability from the tyre for ultimate performance but, overall they still perform well.
9 out of 10


Bill Glasgow - 6th February, 2012

Only driven about 2k miles on these tyres so limited use to do a rating, however very pleased with tyre performance to date, very quiet, solid feel and good to drive on. Tread wear and tyre life remains to be seen but seems to be fair for mileage covered.

Car came with premium bridgestone tyres which I changed after about 12 months as I had no confidence in them when driving in wet/cornering or braking, These tyres wear better and give you more confidence in them during the above driving situations
10 out of 10


Clive - 2nd February, 2012

They have reduced noise levels compared to other tyres used. I understand that this is particularly true of all Golf derivatives. Fuel economy also appears to be improved, averaging 42mpg as opposed to 41mpg before. Mine are due to be replaced as they are now below 2mm. Whilst there is still adequate grip in the wet, they are much more susceptible to aquaplaning, but I would expect that of any tyre when worn. On the whole excellent value and on par with 'premium' tyres, much superior to 'budget' tyres. I'm here to buy my third set!

Quality and cost excellent compared to far more expensive tyres

Jayne - 31st January, 2012

I had these tyres fitted all round to my 500 back in December 2011, so far so good, they are very grippy and I must say they are quieter overall than the four Continentals that they replaced!! The price was also very good compared against the Continental's. I would have no hesitation in fitting these tyres again, or recommending them to others, top marks all round.

Not good. First day after fit the drivers side tyre was as flat as a witches tit. I have to keep putting air in it. I notice during a recent drive on the motorway that the wheels are not properly balanced.

David - 3rd January, 2012

Took a bit of a gamble with these as they had been recommended - The gamble has paid off! These tyres were half the price of the Michelin Primacy Hps that had been on the car and handle just as well in dry and wet with good comfort and no noticable difference in road noise. Buy them they are a bargain!

Howard - 29th November, 2011

Very good tyre at a great price. They managed to stop me from hitting the vehicle in front during emergency braking in the dark on the M4. (Shame about the person behind not using them though). No issues with grip in wet or dry, even when cornering. I will, and have recommended these to other's, and will use them again.

Great value for money and service thru Tyreshopper.I've had them fitted to my wife's Audi AR ,too and shortly to my '57 (reg) Ford Mondeo.I've already recommended Tyreshopper to all my driving friends.
10 out of 10


Martin Robinson - 4th November, 2011

Don't yet know what they would be like in a potential aquaplaning situation. And I haven't had them long enough to determine how well they will wear. Didn't understand the question about appearance - I don't buy tyres for their appearance. These tyres have replaced the ones fitted to my Mazda when new. I couldn't find a consensus on line about a replacement premium brand, but I did find many recommendations for the Barums. And when I asked my fitting dealer about them, they said that many taxi firms use them. I am amazed by these tyres. In the wet, they don't spin up on take off like my original tyres. It was wet weather performance that was most important to me, and I have achieved it.
10 out of 10


Anthony C Foote - 27th October, 2011

1) One tyre already replaced whilst on holiday because of a tyre wall slit, never had that in 35 years of driving. i.e. compound not robust ? 2) Cornering at speed in line with other traffic on a large motorway roundabout caused major tyre squealing

Tyres performed really well with high speed breaking when Emergency Breaking Assist (EBA) kicked in on a motorway. Stopped very quickly.

- 17th September, 2011

I have four of these on the car and find they ware very well, the oldest one I have is about two years old which I swapped to the rear when I bought some new tyres, it still has 3mm on it. Good value for money.
8 out of 10


Conrad - 6th September, 2011

I took a chance on these more budget performance tyres, last ones I had were Avons. To be honest for a performance car I feel I made a mistake and will not be using these tyres again once they wear out.

jeffrey tanner - 5th September, 2011

10 out of 10


Gareth - 24th August, 2011

I am a normal motorist, doing normal journeys and cant fault these tyres. I immediately noticed a softer quieter ride (Pirellis previously) and the grip appeared to be first class. I feel I have been conned for a number of years because fitters told me I needed the 'J' fitting tyres for jags ! This was a very good price and the process was easy and simple. Our family has five cars and we will use you again. I have already recommended.

I FOUND THE PURCHASING AND FITTING EXPERIENCE EXCELLENT. COULDN'T DO BETTER.
10 out of 10


- 8th August, 2011

A good buy at a good price - even including the postage costs- I think they compare well wear / drive-ability wise with the Hankook tyres I had previously and which were more expensive (also from Tyre Shopper who are to be recommended because of the sheer scale of their stock). My best tip - go for one width above your standard size for your car (provided cost does not go up !) and get better mileage from your tyre through reduced wear without significantly affecting your mileometer / speedo readings....

Lee - 11th July, 2011

Brilliant tyres, I am going to buy these forever. Made by Continental. Excellent all rounder. Our car has had a re-map and running at 170 bhp, these have been brilliant in the wet and dry.
10 out of 10


Steve Sowerby - 8th July, 2011

A massive saving on other I'd been offered for the car from other sources. They are one of the few items which really seem to be cut price but not with a cut in quality. I'd have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone and would buy the same again. The Tyre Shopper service offers a full range of prices and qualities that I'd use repeatedly. I've already given the details to businesses who could save a good few quid using your services.

Raven - 7th July, 2011

Poor result on 'aquaplaning' - two or three instances in heavy rain when towing caravan on A1(M). Speed was about 50mph..........a bit disconcerting.

Chris Williams - 4th July, 2011

I have used this brand of tyres now for the past 4 years and have only good things to say about them. The price is right and the quality is superb. I used to do nearly 25,000 miles a year and would only need to replace the front two in that time. A great tyre.

Pam Gosling - 11th June, 2011

Having previously replaced the front tyres on the Focus with premium brands, both Continental & Avon types, we were disappointed that they did not deliver better mileage - the most we achieved was 22000 per set. I would expect this to be in the upper 20 thousands as per the original fit Pirellis. We'll be interested to see how well this budget brand lasts - they've done about 5k so far - and seeing whether the extra money spent on more expensive tyres is worth it. In performance terms no problems so far.
6 out of 10


Thompson - 8th June, 2011

I was sceptical the first time I brought this brand, but now for the price they are very good. I would buy these again, and I would recommend them again.

alan gascoine - 6th June, 2011

fantastic grip. i`ve used perelli, michelin avon and dunlop in the past and spent a shed load of money but the barum bravuris 2 is without doubt the best tyre i`ve ever had.this is a tyre i can trust.safety and security is paramount and these tyres provide that.

Roy Shephard - 19th May, 2011

Barum is the 'budget brand' of Continental at about half the retail price; but with large, wide, low profile tyres in W, Y & Z speed ratings, there is nothing 'budget' about their performance. These tyres are an absolute bargain!

John - 10th April, 2011

Tyre sidewalls are very soft so if you corner hard on them they will give way and cause the traction control to kick in. Only a minor gripe. can't complain as the value for money was really good.

John Eden - 11th October, 2010

Very pleased with these tyres. I have, in fact, sold the car to which I had them fitted, but based on my experience of them, I'd have no hesitation in fitting them to my replacement car. The replacement is the same model as the one I've sold, so no qualms whatsoever. Incidentally, I live in a rural area described as 'remote and isolated' where the roads and their twists offer a great challenge to both car and tyres: the Barums have done very well.

James W Dunlop - 6th October, 2010

The front tyres on the Passat need replacing around 12,000 miles. I have used both Continental and Michelin tyres on the front. This is first time I have used Barum on the front and will need to wait until the car has completed 12,000 miles before commenting on. The rear are Michelin and are over 25,000 miles. I do on average around 8,000 miles per year.

Barum is made by Continental which is why I chose these tyres as they are from a trusted brand. I previously bought 2 to go on the rear of the car which seemed to last quite well as I had done about 6000 miles without much wear to them. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the latest purchase on how well they wear as I had traded in the car 2 weeks later.

Extremely good value tyre at the same time as being high quality, I've had the earlier version on the front of a BMW 320td Compact for four years and still plenty of tread left! No complaints at all mean't I bought the Bravuris 2 for the rear of the BMW and all four on my wife's Seat. Unless you drive like you are in a race you'll have no complaints (and even then when I have driven briskly wet or dry absolutely no problems).

I can say that the Bavarium tyres have been excellent. this is the second set i have purchased for my Lexus IS 200 and for price and quality they are hard to beat, an excellent alrounder.

I have done 21000 miles on these tyres and they still have at least another 7000 miles left on them. They have been excellent tyres considering they are relatively cheap. These tyres were fitted on the rear.

PAUL FLECKEN - 30th September, 2010

I did very few miles on these tyres before I sold the car during which time they were fine. I did have Barum Bravuris fitted to my previous car though and I have no complaints about them except that they could be a bit quieter. I also don't know about the wear rate as I kept neither car for long enough.

Ideal for me. Good quality tyres at a very reasonable price. As a low mileage driver who generally drives conservatively they are ideal.
