Dunlop Direzza DZ101
Follow-Up Review: 15,000 miles on tires
So these ended up lasting about 15k miles before I replaced them. I can't begin to describe how bad they are in the wet. You would think a tire that looks like this would at least be ok in the wet...but no...<br><br>Get some Yokohama S-Drives or something else instead.
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
They are a predictable tire when throwing it around. The lateral grip isnt what Im used to, though it should last longer than my previous tires. I am certain I cant get over 1g of lateral grip on these liky my Azenis, but they are fun. They step out in a very predictable manner then pushed hard on the Miata.
Just put them on my wifes Protege and they are a lot of fun on that. Lift throttle oversteer is beautiful on this tire. For the price you cant go wrong.
