Great tyres, price and service
I purchased a set of 4x Dunlop Sport FM800 from Beaurepairs Kew in July 2018 and after 6 months driving in various conditions have found them to be excellent tyres.
The staff at Beaurepairs were really helpful discussing the tyre options for my 2009 Ford Falcon XR6 and offered a competitive deal on the Dunlop tyres. They also include a free tyre rotation at any store and will be be getting this done after 6,000km now.
The tyre size is 245×45x17 which is a low profile tyre but the Dunlop tyres feel comfortable and matched to the suspension.
The Dunlop FM800 Sport Tyre is very quite on the road, road grip is excellent on all road conditions. Also like to compliment Mark Thomas and his staff from Beaurepaire Geelong for the recommendation and guidance in selecting the best tyre for my car. Furthermore, the tyre looks good and wears well.
Quite to drive, good grip on wet road
Turning on 2nd gear usually I can hear my tires screeching but with Sports FM800 you can feel the grip, same performance in wet conditions
I'm couldn't be happier -special thanks as well to JaxTyres of Bankstown for giving me a good price and excellent service too, Look for Adam or David
Great tyres for the price, equal to Turanza ER300s
Grip is exceptional, but that might be me comparing it to my end of life Bridgestone Turanza ER300s. Feels very grippy in turns, wet or dry. Dramatically improved braking distance and effort over the ER300s. Bought during end of Financial Year sale for $132 per 225/45 R17 tyre.
Mine were made in Thailand. Cannot comment on durability of tyres as yet.
Great tyre for your car
This is a quality Silica based tyre that has good handling characteristics in the wet and dry. These have been on for 2 yrs without loss of performance. they are also reasonably priced and available locally. As an all-round tyre they are in the top category. The tyre has a deep tread pattern for wet handling and you really do feel the road through the steering when you drive on them.
Very good tyre
I've been driving since 1985 and this tyre is a price/performance leader at summertyre category. Every conditions dry, wet or cornering responses are very well. After 15000km there is no performance loss. No difference from factory fitted old michelin hp2. Reason why I dont choose same brand is michelins are very expensive.
The best small car tyre I've ever experienced in 24 years of driving only small cars.
The nicest, smoothest, most comfortable handling of a small car I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
I was very happy with my previous set - Dunlop Fastresponse - from around 4-5 years ago, but the cornering was a little too powerful; that feeling of being on rails.
I went in to Tyrepower with my mind set on some Michelin tyres... and the friendly staff there talked me into these FM800's instead. The fact that they were brand new on the market and being offered at a special price was also a bonus.
If you drive a small, light car like mine and are in need of a full set of tyres, I would highly recommend these.
Quality handling tyre
The Dunlop Sport FM800 is new in 2016, It's a high Quality Silica based tyre with beautiful road handling and very direct road feel and cornering. The price is very reasonable from Beaurepairs outlets at between $130-140 depending on specials. Its a lovely smooth and direct handling tyre with great handling in the dry and wet. This tyre supersedes the Dunlop 300e which was a decent tyre. The tyre has a deep tread pattern for wet handling and you really do feel the road through the steering when you drive on them.
