Top Tyres Great Wear

published

I have them on my 2014 Mazda 3 Astina 6s 2.5 ltr. I have driven over 213,000 km's so far (that's correct), mostly highway but also a lot of city, and on my 2nd set only. Got 120,000km out of my first set and now ready to purchase my 3rd set. Great tyres, great grip and extra long wearing. Luv em

3 tyres drive well!

published

25K and back tyre has split all the way around on the inside wall. It wasn't just a flat tyre! Was highway driving so have no idea what could have caused it. I hope it is not a common occurrence for these tyres. Any suggestions on what could have cause this?

Brilliant tyres

published

Seriously grippy tyres. I have these on an Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV and I've never gone around corners faster. There's no sidewall roll under heavy Gs and steering response is immediate and direct. I've done 30k and being a front wheel drive, I have just replaced the fronts. They get very loose when at the end of their life and very hard. My traction control absolutely gets confused and does not work when these tyres are old.

The rears are barely touched so I see another gentleman posting he's done nearly 80k on them. I think it's fair to say I burn through rubber quite fast (ex race driver) so expect life between 30-80k depending on how you drive them. You can drive these hard though no doubt about it and confident feel while doing so.

Very good tyre

published

These came as standard on my Mazda 3 SP25. I do mostly freeway driving commuting between Sutherland and Wollongong. Very good in dry and wet conditions. Incredibly durable. I've done almost 80k so far and perhaps another 5-10k to go although I'm starting to lose some grip in the wet.

Hi Chris, so good to hear that you're enjoying the Sport Maxx tyres on your SP25. Thanks for the five stars too!

Incredibly, I still have these tyres on my car. They've done 98000 km now.

Hi everyone. Still the same set of tyres, 105k now


Good at Start, but terrible after 30%

published

This tyre may be designed to perform tracks for three laps. I had these tyres in my Subaru Impreza front left and right. Yokohama stood three times of life than this crappy tyres. Good if you intend to swap every 10K. Otherwise forget it.

Started wearing off unevenly. Checked in two different places for wheel alignment and balancing. No issues.

Solid performance and durable

published

Came standard on 2014 Mazda 3, size 215/45r18. Good all round performance but getting a loud drone at 80-90km/h. Up to 75000km now, and still 3-4mm remaining. 4mm centre grooves, 3mm outside grooves, on 44psi fronts and 36psi rears. Ride a bit firm on those pressures but wear pattern suggest they are optimal for this car.
Trying a new tyre next time round.

Very Impressive Tyre

published

These came standard on my new 2015 Mazda 3 SP25GT, an excellent handling and braking tyre in wet and dry conditions. Little bit noisy on some road surfaces, So far just over 24,000 km's om them now and they about half worn so I expect to get about 50,000 km's out of them, but I do run them 2psi more than what Mazda recommends 37 front - 35 rear, and the dealer rotates them every 10,000 km's.
Overall a very impressive tyre.

UPDATE: I have now done over 47,000 KM's on these tyres and it looks like there is about 20,000 KM's left in them.

Pretty Good Tire

published

Got a set of 215/45/18s stock on my new 2014 Mazda 3. Being summertime all the time in Thailand these tires handle excellent in wet and dry conditions. The only complaint I have is that they are noisy on rough roads.

Excellent

published

I have these on my car at the moment and I honestly have to put in some effort to make them slip in the wet, even on a slope. They truly are a performance tyre. As previously mentioned they are not a long-life tyre, but I'll take a safe tyre over a long-life tyre any day of the week.
Exceptional grip in both wet and dry conditions.
Not much really. Not a long lasting tyre, but tyre performance is always a trade-off between longevity and safety. Probably good for about 40,000km, but that's still about 3 years or so for the average driver.

It's short for Touch Technology. See here: http://www.dunloptyres.com.au/about-us/dunlop-tyre-technology/

But in the end, it's just marketing speak. All they're saying is that the Sport MAXX TT is a tyre designed to perform well in a variety of driving conditions.
