Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec
Initial Review: 8,000 miles on tires
August 01, 2012

My use for this tire is for dedicated track/HPDE:

Excellent dry and wet traction. Very confident in mid- and high speed corners in the dry and wet. Predictable breakaway characteristics with clear sound feedback so the driver knows what the tire is doing and going to do when heavily side-loaded. No surprises. On very hot days (95F) can get greasy of driven near the limit - but again... predictable performance and good feedback. Very good in very heavy rain on track.... even when pushed slightly beyond the limit of adhesion - this tire regains grip confidently. Wear is appropriate to how hard it is driven.
A bit on the expensive side.
