What pressure should I run Dunlop FM800 tyres on a CX-30

Check your owners manual for the required tyre pressure. It should probably be around 30 PSI.

I run mine at 40psi without any issues, and it states on the sidewall that it can go to a maximum of 51psi. 33-36psi is a general rule-of-thumb as it provides the most comfort and traction without wearing too much.

I paid $508 including fitting and alignment at Bob Jane (30 June 2021). Without the alignment it would have been about $428. It's definitely a tyre you can shop around - most stores have them and they often have 4 for the price of 3 sales.

Are these tyres directional?

No, they are assymetrical, so they have one side marked "Outside". The tyre pattern is a bit misleading as they look a bit directional and is my only gripe with the tyre.

Are these tyres comfortable and absorb potholes like the Yokohama Advan DBs and Continental CC6s? If I give Advan dBs and CC6 10/10 in Comfort and softness, what number would you give to SP800 out of 10, for Comfort and softness?

Depends in so many variables - vehicle, suspension set up, tyre pressure, speed etc. All I will say is they are a good all-round tyre on my XR6 running 36psi.

Just wondering how good these tyres really are at cornering, I have Yokohama blue earth which are a decent tyre but I can feel that I'm almost driving on the side wall under hard cornering, considering these dunlops when the yokohamas are worn, do they have a soft or stiff side wall, would they be recommended for spirited driving, I can't find any performance tyres in 14's would these be suited to my spirited driving? Thanks in advance

Hi They are strong side walled tyre as my car is hard on softer tyres, I don't like Yoko's as they wear very quickly on my car.

They are smooth and without noise. Mine is a small and relatively light car - driving heavier cars you'd obviously need to be more careful.

Recently we had a very windy day in my area and while driving down the freeway you could feel the wind hitting the car but the tyres really did make it feel like the car stuck better to the road than any set of tyres I've had before.

But as always - careful driving in all conditions especially when cornering is far more important than how good the tyres are.

I am from South Africa and use these tyres (195/50/15) for tar oval track racing in the 1660 fwd class.the wear is a bit more and quicker than the fireforce and bravus tyres used previosly,but the grip is far more superior in the wet and dry! As long as they are available I will keep on using them!
