Dunlop SP Sport 01 Reviews

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Yeti 4 x 4 (225-45-17-W)
Driving 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)

OE fitment. Very happy to start with but when tread depth went down to about 4mm the grip fell off significantly. Very poor grip in acceleration in wet and more recently in dry as well. Just as well that I don't push in corners.

came with a car skoda fabia 1.9 tdi sport
i cant believe what you people are saying about this tyre
this is a second car that i use them and the tire is almost perfect
in dry or in wet, not in snow without grip at all very stiff tire
in wet i was cornering in 80 km/h and they was 4 years old
and my roads are prety much worn in corners - and dont give much grip at all
i have a couple a punctures in front left, and i had to change it after 20000 km, rear lasted 40000 and still runing
my dimension is about 95 euro so they are not so chep either
but i would recomend it on a small fast car

Given 53% (breakdown) while driving a Suzuki Swift 1.3l 2007 (175-65-14-T)
Driving on a combination of roads for 29,000 spirited miles
On the plus side this have lasted well. Very good in dry, soon as get wet that changes and cannot brake very quickly / no grip at all, did almost run into two cars from rear! under 4mm they are shocking and aquaplane all time in rain. when new where okay in snow not so much under 6mm. never felt confident after first 6 months when worn in to the extent my car feels unstable over 50 on motorway in wet conditions.

Replacing with Goodyear ultra grip 8's, reviews amazing on that tyre for the winter
