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 Dunlop Sport Maxx RT

I got these because my driving style was burning up the stock LRR tires on my Volt. They exceeded my expectations for the price and I think they are perfectly comparable to the Michelin PSS and are considerably cheaper.I can now take corners at higher speeds in the rain than with the stock tires in the dry. I also autocrossed the car when my STU Corvette was...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Just purchased a new set for my 2015 Q5 TDI. My first set was on my 2011 Q5 3.2 and they had 13,200 miles (21,000 km) when I traded the vehicle in. The tread depth was only down 2/32's (from 11/32 to 9/32) which I believe is very good wear (likely 40,000+ miles by 5/32 tread depth). My new Q came with Michelin Latitude Sport (summer only) and while I use...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I bought these to replace the OE Dunlop SP600s on an '11 STI. I was pretty amazed at how big of a difference in performance these provide in comparison. On the road, especially when dry, it is very tough to break traction on these tires. Wet performance is also really good. Stability in hard cornering is great. They definitely get finicky in cold temps, but...  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 01

Came as standard equipment on my WRX. Tread lasted less than a year and only 22,000 miles. Pretty piss poor for how expensive of a tire it is. Otherwise, performance was fine. Nothing great, but it worked.   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 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 Kumho Ecsta XS

I am using these tires in sizes 275/35WR18 in the rear and 245/40WR18 in the front, on the BMW OEM 18-inch rims. They are wider than the stock tires and, in fact, they are the widest tires that will fit on the OEM rims. My M3 has several modifications, including Dinan Stage-III suspensions and "CSL" competition brakes.After 3000 miles the tires are not very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport 01

This tire came standard on my WRX. I had originally planned to switch to an all-season tire right away, but decided to give these a try. Since we have very few winter weather events here, these have worked well all year. There have been a few times that I've taken an alternate vehicles to avoid cold, slippery roads, however, for the sake of safety. I've...  Read More
