Questions and Answers for the Dunlop SP Sport 01

2016-05-24 - What weight are these tyres in 185/55/15 size?

185/55R15 82H SP SPORT 01 = 7.5 kg

2016-11-08 - are these tyres any good in winter they are fitted on my tiguan frontwheeldrive

The Dunlop SP Sport 01 is an old technology summer tyre, and as such it will have very limited snow performance. An all season tyre or winter tyre will perform better in the cold wet conditions of the UK winter.

Top Dunlop SP Sport 01 Review

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Yeti 4 x 4 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 18,000 spirited miles
Standard fit on my Yeti, they grip well & have lasted too. The downsides are that they are noisy & getting worse now, wet weather grip has fallen away & they tram line quite markedly as they near 3mm. However,the turn-in is still razor sharp, much better than the Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyres that are also on the car (2 of each on @ the moment)

Given 37% (breakdown) while driving a BMW X3 2.0d Sport (255/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 0 miles

Given 48% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall Insignia CDTI SRI 160 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
I bought a 2012 Insignia Sports Tourer VXLine with Dunlop SP Sport 01 tyres. They are perhaps the worst tyre I can remember driving on.
On motorways the noise is dreadful, admittedly I haven't had another tyre on this car to compare it too yet though, but the tyre noise is loud enough to make conversation with a rear seat passenger difficult.
It's the wet grip that is pushing me to ditch them though. It's been a relatively dry summer, but as soon as the roads are damp I can feel the grip disappear and the few times the road has been properly wet I have the traction control kicking in when pulling away.

Overall they give little confidence in the wet. Which is odd because reviews for these tyres are pretty good - it almost makes me wonder whether they are some fake knock-offs as opposed real Dunlops.

Given 54% (breakdown) while driving a Mitsubishi GTO Twin Turbo (235/45 R17 W) on mostly town for 5,000 average miles
Pretty average tyre at an above average price. Plenty of others to consider rather than this.

Given 46% (breakdown) while driving a (185/55 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 500 spirited miles
Had these tyres fitted to the front of an MGTF I bought. The handling and feel was awful. Changed them for a pair of Avon's and the handling and steering has been transformed. I won't ever be buying these Dunlops!

(185/65 R15) on for 0 miles
The tires are good, but not especially good. I found it noisy and low feedback from the road. I would compare it with Continental Conti Eco contact 3. For comparation, Michelin Alpin A4 and BF Goodrich G force are quiter in any situation, especially in town.
The tires are hard, not soft.
