Spring has Sprung, Let's Go Have Some Fun with Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec Tires!

With most of the country experiencing warmer-than-average temperatures, many driving enthusiasts, including myself, have shed their winter / snow tires and wheels for "stickier" summer tire options. For the last few years, the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec has consistently been a staff favorite in our tests, as well as a best seller for those looking for a great balance of exceptional dry and wet traction. 

Soon after the tire was introduced, we performed our internal tests, and more recently I had an opportunity to test the Z1 Star Spec at BMW's training and testing facility in South Carolina. All those who participated were very impressed.

In our wet skidpad and slalom testing, the Direzza Z1 was poised and very predictable right to the limit of the car which mirrored our customer's feedback and survey results. The tire also proved to be relatively quiet and expected life span is consistent with the competition.

Are you looking for Miata tires or something for your Honda Civic? Or maybe you're interested in M3 tires or a set of tires for your Porsche 911. Dunlop knows their customer base and that's why the Z1 Star Spec is offered in a wide range of sizes from 14" up to 18". This allows drivers with both smaller and larger applications to enjoy the race-like traction of the Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec.

Relatively quiet??? These tires are annoyingly noisy! I installed them two years ago and they were very noisy new. Now at 13',000 miles I get these very loud resonance frequencies at 20 mph and 40 mph that vibrates my dashboard and interior. My family can't stand it and neither can I but I can't afford to spend another $1200 for a new set of QUIETER summer performance tires. Any suggestions?
