Dunlop SP Sport Fast Response Reviews

Given 74% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus MK2 1.6TDCI 2008-2011 (195/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 35,000 spirited miles
Very good tyres, but I was dissapointed they worn out in a couple of seasons.

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Avensis (205/55 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
I have these tyres for 4 year with ~50.000 km. I'm not sport's driver, living in region were we have snow in winter and hot days in summer meaning I have to change tyres to winter/summer season. So my opinion for those who prefer comfort and security. As new these tyres were perfect, good grip, not so noisy, 180km/h was stable on road, and no additional noises. 160km/h in the German Autobahn was the same, so I liked these tyres. But. After few year usage, with ~35.000-40.000 km, after few changes I have notices strange sound like bumping, like unaligned wheel sound. I was told one the tyres is not equaly weared, like with corners (remember, no hard brakes, high speeds only occacional). Also noise appeared from all tyres. So now my winter tyres are less noisy. Also realised that turning wheels demands more power than turning with winter tyres. So, good tyres after few year became not so good and costed me few visits to garage. Cannot recommend such tyre for such price.

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo S40 2.0d (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 11,000 spirited miles
Had these tyres on my Volvo on front axle. They replaced Goodyear's Efficient Grips tyres. After 11.000 miles they were down to 3mm. Got them replaced even if I didn't have to, because they became noisy by the end of their life and slippery as weel. When they were new I was happy with them.
Dry cornering was very good, braking as well. On wet they were very good too. Wear rate is bad, but it is with any soft sport tyre compound.
Would I buy them again? No. Don't get me wrong, the are good tyres, but there are better choices now.

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Yaris (175/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
I consider these tyres a medium choice.Most times they did well both on dry and wet ecxept from demanding braking on motorways when the car stability was not that good. Now that they are at 40k klm they fell slippery.

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz C200 Kompessor Coupe Auto (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Had these for 2 years and got about 30000kms will tread still to use. Last changed tyres because changed rims and had to go to dunlop sportmaxx which aren't as good.
Dry grip was great in the dry and wet grip was still good, hard accelerating comfortably in the wet.
noise was minimal which is appreciable on my car.
Wear was reasonable and even for occasional spirited urban driving and well aligned car.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Honda Accord Tourer Type S (205/55 R16 W) on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
Great touring tyre. It quiet (and was quiet for all its lifetime), comfy and has very good grip on dry and also in wet. Also mileage is very good, over 30.000 miles.
I have got MFS 91W version, with the rim protector which is great and I miss it at the new bluresponse tyre at 16" size.


On the other hand I drove 15" fastresponse on diesel focus (15" H) and the mileae was very poor (15000 miles I guess). Probably depends size to size.

Given 96% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus mk2 (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 48 easy going miles
A superb tyre, worked well, went the miles and covered all requirements. Drove for around 48,000 on the fronts. Worked well in the snow, wet and dry.
Only reason for replacememt was due to a puncture, so side wall could be improved to be more resistant to punctures.

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Megane (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 16,000 average miles
My driving style is very various depending on how I’m feeling…so I was tested this tyres in almost all conditions. First of all what I want from a tyre is to be comfortable as long as I don’t have a sport car… And unfortunately this model isn’t comfortable at all. The noise is not so far away from my Firestone Winterhawk 2 which is an winter tyre !!! The noise is really bad at this tyre and I was cheated by the EU label which evaluated at 69db and just one line from 3…
In the rest the tyres are very good in the curve and progressive driving, very good on hot (not just warm) weather but very very low performance if the temperature decreases bellow 15C…
I recommend those tyres just for the south of Europe or northern Africa weather and just if you don’t care about the noise.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A3 Sport (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 25,000 spirited miles
Had these on for 2 years / >25000 miles and are only down to 4mm. (Rotated once).
Mainly motorway miles. Yesterday I encountered a relatively high speed blowout (NS rear) on the A1, where the complete tyre except the walls around the edges shredded off. I guess the solid walls of the Tyre saved any worse damage and I managed to safely get into the lay-by.
All the other Dunlops have been checked this morning and a Infinity tyre installed temporarily. Therefore, I reccomend this tyre. It has certainly proved its worth, and I guess the blowout was a one-off.
