Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Signature (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I just ordered by second set of these tires for my Cayenne. All other tires for my high performance SUV cost at least double the cost of these and many of them perform much worse. I have almost 150k miles on my Cayenne. I have purchased Porsche NXX OEM tires, Pirelli, Michelin, and Continentals during the time I have owned this SUV. I drive a 911 during the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

Noisiest tires I ever owned![I am 80 years old]. Thump...thump...on some roads and whoo..whoo...on other roads. Don't buy this tire unless you like continuous tire noise!Finally I complained enough that Goodyear replaced them with Dunlops at no charge. What really bothered me was that the Goodyears were check rated by Consumer Reports. The Dunlops are nice...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

These are great tires. These tires transformed my car compared to when it had the old Dunlops on it, which were pretty worn down by the time I replaced them (Front: 3/32 Rear: 5/32). I put about 12000mi on the car before replacing the tires. I thought the TL was a quiet ride when I first bought the car, but man was I wrong.The P7s add a whole new dimension...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I was dreading putting snow tires on my car, knowing that it meant swapping my low profile 18s for 16s, but these tires are fantastic. Not only do they handle the Maine winter weather with ease (and this winter thus far has been rough), but they are pleasant to drive on dry pavement. The steering responsiveness is better than any other 16 snow tire that I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I swapped out an old set of Dunlop snow tires with the Michelins and I'm not disappointed at all. The day I put them on we had about 6 of snow on the roads and I was able to drive through it without any difficulty. My subdivision is particularly hilly, so I was impressed with the grip under both acceleration and braking. Cornering was confident and direct....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Solus KH16

Replaced the OEM Dunlop's on my CX7 with these Solus's. Much lower noise level, and seem to track well. Very good in the rain on the interstates. Feel safe. Based on mileage so far and tread depth remaining I figure these will match the mileage got on the Dunlops. About 51,000. Bought them on a rebate deal from Tire Rack, so they were a bargain if they last...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I had Dunlop Gaspic 3,on my last purchase and found them replaced by the Winter Max. This new tire is a remarkable tire for the winter. I picked these up the first of November 2014 and put them on 16 November. Went to South Bend (4 hour drive) to see family and was so glad I had them on. A foot of snow followed by another inch the next day. As expected,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek Touring A/S

This is a stock tire on our model of GLK, which unfortunately came with these huge 19 wheels with uncommon tire size. Dry traction is acceptable, but with occasional tire squeal (when taking few sharp turns in spirited manner), wet traction is slightly worse, especially when tires were new. Snow traction was pretty poor (managed to get completely stuck few...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I went with these tires for my FRS in an attempt to maintain the fun factor. I had gone with the Dunlop Z2's or Hankook RS3's on my more powerful 240sx and loved them. However with only 200hp on tap I wanted a less grippy tire to make sure I could still slide around if I wanted. I put these tires through 3 autocross events and a track day at Watkins Glen and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

Great winter tire.. haven't tried others yet on this Focus ST, but compared to other winters I ran on my Se-R Spec-V these are as good as anything I tried... glare ice traction could be a bit better but supposedly the 4D do that... I'm decidedly against dunlop since esperiencing their crap on a motorcycle and some econo tires... but this one is really pretty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

Took these Dunlops to Texas World Speedway for their driving clinic. It's a fast track and I couldn't be happier with these tires. They did all that I could expect from a DOT tire and more. They also showed very little wear in what should have punished a tire. Buy these.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 2050

OEM tires on my Mazdaspeed3 . Overall not as bad as you hear. I consider them to be an average tire at a premium price . Will not buy again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I've seen a decent amount of snow in milwaukee this year and these tires are just outstanding. With the power of the STI I have broken them loose but they were still gripping the entire time, and the wheel spin was due to the amount of salt the city is dumping this year. I thought they might be a little squishy in a hard cornering situation but wow was I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I purchased this tire after I ruined a set of Dunlops by mistake. I used to be a dedicated Bridgestone before buying the Dunlop just to save a few dollars. Bad mistake. Anyways onto the review of this tire. Simply put, best Bridgestone tire I have ever owned. This tire is listed as a summer tire but I have used them in snow and had no trouble at all. It...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I picked these up from Tirerack knowing I wanted an extreme summer tire. I had them delivered with a set of silver TRM C1M 15x7 30 offset wheels. Both the wheels and tires look fantastic. While I have had limited opportunities to experience the grip, I fully expect them to perform beautifully. A 20 minute track session in the rain was actually enjoyable as I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I have these on my supercharged and coilover'd '94 Miata that is strictly a nice-weather car, thus why I can't rate wet characteristics. I have had Potenza RE750s and the set before buying the ZIIs were Potenza RE-11s. The RE-11s were way above the RE750s, and I wore the RE-11s clear down to the rears being completely smooth and looking like go-cart tires......  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza ZII

I had this tire's predecessor on my 05' Evo MR and currently on my Eclipse GSX and on those two vehicles, these tires have performed very well! This new iteration performs very well as well on my BMW. They handle so well. But my other two cars are not what I would call quiet riding cars. So tire noise was not very noticeable. But on my BMW 335Xi M-Pkg., the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

I bought the DZ 102's because they were priced well and I really needed summer tires. I only have driven on these for a few weeks but must say these tires rock! The dry grip is much better than the factory Michelin's. They have a stiffer sidewall so the my cornering and handling has really improved. And the sound/road noise is a drastic improvement over the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I decided to buy winter tires just before the first forecast snow storm in my area. I live in upstate NY. The in-stock selection was low, the service manager suggested I try the Winter Maxx. I've never previously owned a set of Dunlop's, but with the only alternative available to me being the house brand I told the manager I'd take the Dunlops. I have not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 600

These tires had a better treadlife for being strictly a summer tire. I have had all season tires not last as long. However these tires are prone to cupping. The wet traction was sub par. I dont know how the manufacturer even can say that they evacuate water well. If it rains stay home! These tires will not be good for you nor comfortable even in the lightest...  Read More
