    Hold on well in the dry but....

    published

    My car sits in the garage all week,brand new wheels and these tyres on the front.discovered steering shake when driving off intially. Bit of research discovered that these are notorious for flat spotting when sitting for extended periods. Very soft compound,good for grip,not good for sitting.Explains why the shake eventually went away. They sit on 20"rims on my fg falcon.wont be getting these again.

    They hang on but start saving for new tires immediately

    published

    Good tire. Smooth, quiet, very good grip wet and dry but you may be replacing them within 12 months. They are on our second car (towing mostly) I noticed wear within months, moved them all around the car to even out wear but now they're all at their wear indicators. This car isn't driven every day and needed replacing at 13 months, The car I drive every day does 600k a week on kumho KH17 fitted 2 months later and will probably need replacing around the end of 2017.

    Good grip in most situations, 3-6 month wear time max

    published

    Although these are sometimes on excellent special prices, these tyres simply do not last long enough to be good value (fitted to a 2009 VE Commodore).

    The grip in wet and dry great, silent on highways, handle great. But they are a soft compound and compared to closely priced Bridgstones RE92, they get half the lifespand for identical driving conditions.
    The grip, noise and handling of the Bridgstones is better in most scenarios.

    10+ years ago I used to run dunlop exclusively on my cars, they too also had a very soft compound.

    For modern, heavy cars, I don't recommend these tyres. They wear out too fast.
    For older, lighter cars, the softer compound offers grip and handling these cars would have never had previously.
