Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP31 A/S

While many of these reviews are negative, this one is my own experiences with this tire and it has not been an overall negative one. I purchased my 2011 Honda Insight EX used at a year old and since that time, I have put just about 30,000 miles on the tires now in th two years I have own it. Living in New England, I experience every realm of weather one can...  Read More

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

Excellent all around winter tire for areas receiving moderate snow. Majority of my driving in mid west where we experienced significant snow and ice this winter. Tires lean toward cold/dry performance over deep snow performance. Amazing responsiveness for a winter tire. Have had Blizzak on other cars and those are superior in DEEP snow. However Blizzak and...  Read More

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

I used 3 sets of these and/or their grandfather (Dunlop Sport M2) over the last 14 years using them only during the winter. I'm now going to buy a new set of the next winter. I really like them for Seattle driving where water and wet snow is what I mostly drive on winter around town and in the mountains. They are true to their advertising: better tire than...  Read More

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

The best summer tires I ever had. My Mazda come from the factory with Dunlop Sport which I could not wait to replace. Bridgestone tires makes Mazda even more fun to drive. I drive about 12000 miles every summer in Michigan and the tires will last for one season, then in the winter I'm using Bridgestone blizzak, by the way those are other awesome tires. Never...  Read More

Sumitomo's Affordable Performance All-Season Tire Just Got Better

Sumitomo traces its roots back to its relationship with Dunlop that started in 1909 and has been engineering and producing world-class tires now for decades. In the late 1990s, Sumitomo and Goodyear formed a joint venture in which the two manufacturers would produce tires for each other. In a way, you can think of Sumitomo as the "Goodyear of Japan." ¬†For...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Signature CS

I just put on my second set. I just don't see how you can beat this tire for the money. I've never had a problem in any amount of snow. Always feel in control. I think they are great in the rain too. Could I have squeaked out a few thousand more miles? I guess. But new tires are always more quiet and handle better. If you are looking in this price range, I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Far exceeded expectations, especially in snow. After buying a CPO Q5 3.2 late in the winter and experiencing the oem Dunlops, I needed to decide on some a/s tires, and many of the usual go-to tires were sold out.I knew the Conti-General product line is excellent, based on my experience with a few models, so I took a chance on these RT tires. I hoped that 700...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

I've had these tires through highway/city, pot holes, heavy rain, and they've performed great so far. They were replacing the OE Dunlop SP SPORT 7000 A/S which lasted almost 70k but were definitely due. By comparison I can say that even vs the Dunlops when new these Contys make less noise and ride much better especially when the roads get rough. What sold me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 5000 M

I've driven the car in every weather condition. I haven't taken it off pavement & won't unless I have to. I've noticed that others complain about noise, but so far it's been a quiet tire. My only complaint, and it's a big one, is that the tire has zero traction in the snow. After our first snow this winter, we barely made it up the slight incline of our...  Read More

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

I just had my Kumho Ectas replaced with the P7s, and the difference is amazing. The Genesis is a comfortable car but with the P7s is is far better. When I bought the car, the OEM Dunlops had already been replaced, so I don't know how they were but P7s really bring the Genesis back to highway cruiser. They are much quieter, provide a much softer ride and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3

I've used this set on 2 different cars for 3 winters. In the first two with the 335i coupe they were great. Very good in any kind of snow...light, deep,slush, ice. Once I put these tires on my 135is there was a noticeable difference. They have 8/32nds left and they feel like they aren't dealing with the snow well anymore. This could be because of a number of...  Read More

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

I ride on these tires all year long. Living in NJ, they see snow, ice and heavy rain and these tires perform very well.   Read More

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

We live in a suburb of Seattle, so we do not get much snow ... but we do go up into the mountains in the winter, over two of the higher elevation passes. We have excellent Pirelli all-season tires for 8 months of the year, but wanted 'real' snow tires for the additional safety during December-March. Based on the reviews, we selected the Dunlop, although we...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01 A/S

These tires came with my 2013 VW Golf R. They are the worst tires I have ever owned. In the first six months I had to replace three of them due to side wall bubbles. They are noisy, they are horrible in wet or snow conditions of any kind. They corner poorly and I honestly dont feel safe with them on my car at higher speeds. I replaced them as soon as I...  Read More

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 Dunlop SP Sport Signature (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

The tires have been much quieter than the factory Continentals, but then again the Conti's had 28k miles on them. The Saab seems to be an inherently noisy ride, so it needs all the help it can get. Good tires make a lot of difference. Am trying to keep the psi up to 35, to facilitate good economy in mixed driving. Intend to rotate them every 10k, of course....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

I have never found driving in the snow so easy until I slapped these ----as on. The amount of traction in anything over an inch of snow is mind boggling. These tires will make you wonder why on earth everybody is going so slow around you. Paired with my Subaru WRX and all wheel drive, I have been unstoppable in every snow storm this winter. Having fun in the...  Read More

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

I chose these tires reading reviews and I can say I am happy with them. They hold air pressure very constant but still check them once a week! Any tire on ice will still slip but having a snow tire helps reduce that problem. They are a good choice and worth the money spent!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport M3

I have the Dunlop Winter Sport M3s on the OEM 18 wheels, in sizes 225/45VR18 in the front and 255/40VR18 in the back. These are truly outstanding snow tires. They are the best - I think - for a car like my E46 M3. We had a snowstorm (around Thanksgiving) and several freezingrainstorms. The tires behaved beautifully. The traction control light never came on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General G-MAX AS-03

Replaced OEM Dunlop Sport Maxx tires which were badly worn after only 30k miles. Have found these tires to be far superior to the Dunlop's offering better wet and dry traction. They have performed well in the light snow experienced in Saint Louis. The ride is excellent and I have found these tires to be quieter than the OEM tires. Cornering stability is good...  Read More
