Best tyre I’ve owned. Super safe, durable and long lasting. Slightly uncomfortable on long drives

Purchased these after multiple tyre breakages with other brands. These lasted by far the longest (actually got to wear them out). They grip well, can handle corners in wet and dry conditions, and the 2-ply wall has allowed for excellent durability.
My only gripe is they’re a little uncomfortable when driving longer distances- it’s a small price to pay for the safety and durability on offer.
Having gone through a few sets now over several years. It’s a shame they’re discontinued as would definitely purchase them again. Show details

Best tyres wver

These are by far the best tyre I have ever driven on. Grip, wet and/or dry, ride. 17” low profile very quiet for a low profile tyre.
These tyres have also worn extremely well. Show details

Surprisingly good

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. Show details

Great Tyre !

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. Show details

cheap thrills,

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.  Show details

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

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. Show details

Awesome tyres !

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. Show details

Great tyres

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. Show details

Bad balance noisy

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. Show details

Great tyre

Bob Jane talked me into these and very inpressed
Very quiet and great performance.
Ooted out of the wheel alignment, these tyres are so good they corrected the alignment themselves.
Got up this morning and they made me a coffee amd poached eggs on toast.
Can't fault these tyres, seriously. Show details

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?
