Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT
Follow-Up Review: 16,000 miles on tires
I was able to get 20,000 miles out of these tires with limited aggressive driving and rotating every 5,000 miles. Handling and comfort were consistent throughout. Picked up a little bit of noise the last thousand miles as you would expect. I thought the tires performed better then the OEM Bridgestones, but you pay a distinct mileage penalty as I was able to get 35K miles out of the OEM tires.
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
I got 35K out of the OEM Bridgestones. OEM were on back order however so I went with these. This tire seems to be an improvement, but the Bridgestones had 26K miles on them when I bought the car so I don't have an equal frame of reference. The tire seems to great corning and steering response, with a little more forgiving ride and lower road noise than the OEM tires.
