    They are ok, I had them on my Passat, and they performed pretty good for my usage, wouldn't call it a high performance tyre though.

    i run zz3`s on my S3 and I like them, they seem to wear ok and look very square on the rim. Ie nice straight sidewalls. Some others look streached.

    I had some zz3's on the front of my old a3 1.8t, imo i thought they was a very good tyre, wear quite well, pretty quiet and quite grippy, up to a point

    My friend had them on his Rover 25, good tyres by his account, better than the pirelli p6000's anyway.

    They are a good qulaity tyre (construction wise) but are very hard compund. They will last very well compared to grippier softer tyres like Toyos etc.

    I know someone that swears by them on his a6, reckons the extra weight of the car needs a harder tyre and he likes them. They are good value bearing in mind they will probably last about 30-50% longer than some tyres 20% more expensive.

    He chose a Rover 25? I'd question his ability to put his shoes on the correct feet let alone recommend tyres. I would take his recommendations with a very large fistful of salt!
