I have used Barum tyres several times on different cars when the required size has been available. I have always found that they give good mileage and good driving, braking, etc to suit the way that I drive.

I do a low annual mileage as I am often out of the country for 3/4 months most years recently. The extra guarantee was unexpected! I had spent a lot of time on the internet & also locally before discovering yourselves on the net. I will be needing 2 new tyres on the rear around my MOT date in July. The rear tyres are still the original ones from car newly purchased, newly registered in 2008. The 2 latest tyres on the front are the 3rd set from new. I hope these 2 latest tyres give me better mileage than previous, as 3k a year mileage, I felt was not good value. I will now see from 3 & 6 months ago what mileage I get. Today I recommended your company & Brillantis tyres, & also fantastic value at approx £40 per tyre.

When the standard Khumo tyres needed replacing on the front I didn't hesitate to buy Barum Brilliantis 2 as I'd had them on my previous car. Much better feel, grip and they lasted longer too! They were not only the cheapest brand for my car on Tyreshopper but also came with the free lifetime guarantee. I will be putting them on the rear too when the time comes.

A good tyre for classic vehicles. Have also used these on by MGB for 3 years - wearing well and seem to perform OK.

I have used these tyres before with perfectly satisfactory results. They are relatively inexpensive and perform well although my drving style is not aggressive.

Ian Brightmore - 27th August, 2012

Excellent for the money. Had Ceat tyres on before that squealed around roundabouts and understeered terribly. The Barums have solved all of the handing problems.

Darren W - 25th July, 2012

Really surprised how good these tyres are. Compared to my old tyres which were a premium brand these give much less road noise. They feel smoother and steering is more confident. Excellent and will definitely consider buying again.

I like Barum as a mid-quality brand. Tyre shopper stock them all at good realistic prices. I have these tyres on both my cars now with no problems at all.

Michael Howarth - 29th June, 2012

This is the first time I have used a budget brand, but after reading reviews was a little skeptical but thought for half the price give it a go, I am very happy so far and would say equally as good as the continental premium contact I had on before, if not quieter, very pleased overall, tread has hardly changed and done 5000 miles in three months, I would highly recommend these tyres, and will certainly buy again, also great service from nation tyres in Bridlington.

Bill Hughes - 5th June, 2012

After visiting three local tyre fitters and getting three different prices for four tyres of this quality, then checking loads of feedback on sites online I found Tyreshopper and bought the same tyres for about forty pounds less through them fitted at the same tyre depot who gave me the higher price a week before. It's a no brainer, I have since recomended Tyreshopper to friends and family.

Doug Quinney - 18th March, 2012

Until I fitted some to the wife's car a year or so ago I only knew of Barum as being an excellent tyre for speedway and grasstrack racing; now also an excellent keenly priced quality tyre for cars.

PB - 12th March, 2012

Excellent tyres, very low noise, confident handling, grip and braking. Its a bit early to judge wear but the rolling resistance is definitely better than the Kumhos I replaced (on rear), and early signs are they will show good economy and longevity. Very pleased particularly as I got them fitted for just £55 each.

les Hargreaves - 10th March, 2012

This is the second set of the same tyre for this car, as I was more than happy with the performance and durability of the first ones.

I have used cheap tyres before and really regretted it, these tyres were far from expensive but an have proved to be excellent value for money, so much so, i need new ones for the rear and will be buying these ones again.

John William McEwan - 19th October, 2011

excellent price / performence ratio. Do you really need a premium tyre? These seem to do the job very well. Poss not suitable for the GT racer, but fine for family motoring on a budget
10 out of 10

mike - 30th September, 2011

The tyres are much quiter than those supplied with my car when it was new. They are much more flexible too making the ride a lot more comfortable. The downside to this is that the responsiveness appears less than before and I would not be confident taking corners aggressively with these tyres . Overall they are good value and for me the benefits outweigh the loss of cornering performance.

Re; Ride comfort & smoothness. These tyres ride hard against my old ones, rather like being over-inflated, which they are not , but overall am very satisfied.

This tyre is a great all rounder and fantastic value for money that comes with a quality you dont expect at this price.

David Clark - 5th May, 2011

These tyres are apparently made by Continental, but a cheaper version of those that I had already had fitted which had worn down very quickly. At present I cannot really comment properly on the wear but would be able to do so maybe in 12 months when I am able to compare how well they are lasting to the more expensive Continentals.

Good budget tyre, though cornering at speed could be better.

Richardson - 30th March, 2011

Appear under pressure despite being fully/slightly over inflated, otherwise, they are just black rubber things that goes round with the wheels.

I got two tyres for two different cars. both have been very good so far. My wife and myself are very satisfied. We will use these make of tyres again.

Miss BUTLER - 14th January, 2011

Since buying these tyres I have driven on ice both black and snow covered. I have to say that they are better than the more expensive and well branded ones on the cars we use for work. I had less wheel spins and stopped quicker. I feel little difference between the two during dry weather.

I have used these tyres for about7 years and cannot fault them I have not experienced any aquaplaning at all though whilst using any tyre at all/ My driving does not allow slipping anyway. I would recommend Barum Tyres to anyone for a mid range economy tyre!
