Hi there

This summer I've used Nokian Q and have been pleasently suprised. Works quite
well even on warmer days, +30 celsius or more. Few things though, when the car
has been standing in the sun for a few hours, the tires seem to be unbalansed
for a few miles, apparentlyu the rubber sofetns up partially. And above 170
kph they're a bit, hmmm, "uneasy, but that's to be expected - speedclass Q.
Good choise if your winter tires have some grooves left, but not enough for
safe  winter driving. In the future summers though, I'm going to put summer
tires under, perhaps Goodyear or Euromaster Z100.
