Tire is incredibly noisy while driving, plus I can no longer drive my SUV in the rain as it's way to dangerous. Hydroplane resistance is next to none along with grip when it is wet. This was a great tire for the few first thousand miles, but after that its all downhill. I would not recommend these.

The Dunlop SP Sport Signatures are really a mixed bag of features. The dry traction and response to inputs are really good for a tire meant for an SUV. In the dry its not easy to get the tires to spin, even when taking a turn WAY to fast for passenger comfort. Wet traction and hyrdoplaning resistance are good but not as great as they could be. In the wet the tires find grip and struggle to sometimes, esp in heavy downpours. The ride comfort is also fairly mixed; it absorbs bumps fairly well but once the tires start wearing they certainly get nosier. I'm at about 1/2 tread life and the tires are pretty noisy, noisy to the point where sometimes it's difficult to have a conversation depending on the road surface and speed. Would I buy them again, probably not because of the excessive noise from them.
