Surprisingly good.

published

Came out of Nexen CP691 which were factory fitted to my 2017 Lancer gsr since new. These previous tyres were reliable and durable but I agonized for 4 1/2 years of noisy driving.
Got the new Pirelli Dragon Sports from a Black Friday 50% sale and didn't regret. These tyres are surprisingly good.. Good handling, good grips and less noisy.
Still early days though and I cannot comment further. They might be soft tyres but I'll be happy to get 40ks from them.

Great Tyre !

published

installed 4 new on the toyota 86 coming from the priamcy. the grip level is insane, ride is still comfy and no noise.As for the price I highly recommend this tyre. I was trying to choose between this and the Pilot sport 4, happy I went with the pirelli.
wet performance compared to original tires is amazing, so much grip.
grip grip and more grip, this is what I have to say.
Amazing performance.
Cant comment yet on durability.
amazing value for money.

got it installed at Jax tires in gold coast, $144 fitted for each.
Great value.

Purchased in at JAX Tyres.

cheap thrills,

published

I'm in a 370z. I'm not a pensioner, but I'm no p-plater in a commodore either. For the price, they're a pretty good tyre. But as far as tyres go, I'd call them midrange. Very noisy on the highway. If I drive real easy for 2 more months it'll be12months and 25000kms out of the rears, perhaps another 5-8000kms on the fronts. An excellent tyre for most people, maybe midrange for sportier drivers.
I don't know if it's my rims (stock) or the tyres, but there were a LOT of weights added for balancing. I'd get them again, except 370's have a lot of road noise and these don't help.

If you like grip, or simply want to feel safer on the road, this is it.

published

I've had RE003s in the past, amongst a whole lot of other tyres. These Dragon Sport tyres are by far the best performance for the price. I didn't expect much from them in the beginning, but after having driven on these for some time now I'm thoroughly impressed. Wet or dry, these things stick to the road well. I wish tyre companies would make more tyres like these. The only thing that remains to be seen is the tread life, but in general the grippier the tyre the shorter they last. So I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't last as long as other inferior tyres. Not an issue though, as I value my life and safety over cost savings.

Awesome tyres !

published

Bought 4 of them about 6 months (12,000 km) ago, 225/45/18 for my 2016 Toyota Camry RZ.
They have been performing really well so far, both on dry and wet condition. It is slightly more noisy than the original Bridgestone Turanza but definitely better than the Michelin Pilot Sport 4. I was disappointed with the PS4 as they are a lot more expensive but very soft tyres that they were gone within 25,000 km. With Dragon Sport, even though only 12,000km so far but still looks new, compare with SP4 when it was 12,000km mark. Overall, Pirelli Dragon Sport is very good quality tyres and very well priced and seems the tyres are very well suited for Australian condition.

Great tyres

published

Fitted 225/45R18 Pirelli Dragon Sports to a 2015 Mazda 3. Much better handling and very good wet weather performance. Only done 1000km so far so can't comment on wear yet, but I am confident they will last a while.

Bad balance noisy

published

Had them three weeks already been back to Jax for a rebalance after two weeks. Was told one wheel was 25 grams out. Will be going back again to have the balance rechecked . Mostly highway driving. Noisy tyres compared to the original potenza's. Bluetooth phone even says too much background noise sometimes. Pirelli tyres always seemed good to me, never again. Fitted to a Vf Sv6.

Pleasantly surprised!

published

I got a set of these Dragon Sports on my 2007 VE SSV. It handled very well initially and I couldn't really complain. Good wear and really good grip in dry. As they age wet handling becomes a serious problem as the compound is suited towards mileage instead of traction. Changing brands soon as the budget tyre isn’t suitable for all the power.

Trying to decide between the Pirelli Dragon sport and the Michelin Pilot Sport 4. 235/40/R18. Driving a 2017 A250 4matic. Any recommendations? I was leaning towards the Michelin only because I'm running the Michelin Pilot sport 3's on all 4 right now (got the car with them). The Michelin are definitely more expensive though :S
Suggestions?
