Dunlop SP Sport Maxx A1-A A/S
Initial Review: 21,000 miles on tires

These tires are horrible even in slightly damp weather. Long sweeping turns in the rain are scary at this point, let alone sharper turns. The car does not hydroplane, rather it slips sideways on the turns. On top of that, this car has way too much power for these tires. Even on a straight road when accelerating from a moderate speed (from 40mph up to 50mph), the tires are easily spinning. Not sure if it is the car or the tires or both, but despite being properly aligned, the car seems to wander in the lane and catches grooves and ruts in the road easily. The only plus is that they seem to wear very evenly.

These definitely rank as some of the worst tires I've ever had on a vehicle with only one other exception in 20 years. They are OEM, and I can't wait to replace them SOON.
