Initial Review: 500 miles on tires

2003 Lotus - Caterham Super 7 SV, the last (and only) real Lotus. These tires are simply perfect for the car. The car is so light (1250 pounds) that it is very difficult to find appropriate road tires. My previous tires were Yokohama Advan 032Rs. They were OK in the dry but super scary in the wet. The Dunlops are fantastic in all conditions! Great grip, razor sharp turn in, mid-corner pucker recovery is fantastic, rain is no longer a white knuckle situation. If you need a tire that doesn't require a warm-up period and grips like flypaper, this is a great choice. I couldn't be happier!
