Tyre Test Highlights

2015 Auto Review Summer Tyre Test - 9th of 9 tyres

  • Positive - Price, strong sidewall
  • Negative - Extremely low wet grip, low resistance to aquaplaning, high rolling resistance
  • Overall - Not available in the UK market, Auto Review found the Dunlop LM704's dangerous thanks to a shocking performance in the wet. OK for hot climates with pot holed roads that don't see rain. No where else.

Questions and Answers for the Dunlop SP Sport LM704

2016-10-11 - There are mixed reviews about this tire's wet grip. I live in the tropics, so if this tire is dangerous on wet roads, that's a serious no-buy issue for me. Can anybody shed light on the issue about the wet grip?

Unfortunately we have no direct experience with the Dunlop LM704, however we are confident Dunlop would never release a product which could be classified as dangerous in the wet.

2017-06-14 - Who performed the 2015 Auto Review Summer Tyre Test? Because in the other Q&A you mentioned "no direct experience" with this tyre. As a family man, I only want safe tyres and the reviews between "tester" and "user" are contradicting each other. So can you please confirm if this tyre has good grip on wet?

Auto Review are a Russian automotive publication. They tested the tyres themselves for the article. Auto Review found the LM704 had poor wet grip compared to 8 other leading competitors.

Top Dunlop SP Sport LM704 Review

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 2010 2.3mps (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Best tyre so have ever had on a car, I am running 260+hp through the front wheels and while they will break traction in a straight line relatively easily I can't think of a time they have produced under steer in the wet or dry. I got them when I purchased the car, they had some light wear, after 15000km of somewhat spirited driving, the fronts are quite worn (still 2mm of tread before needing replacement) but the rears have only worn a couple of mm.

I would buy them again in a heartbeat if they were still available in New Zealand

Volvo (205/50 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 200 average miles
My volvo c30 needed new tyres after 30.000 miles, so I got these from a local retailer last week. Surprisingly after putting Lm704's on the front axis, fuel consumption dropped quite noticeably right away (from 8,4 lts/100 kms to 7.6 lts/100 kms). I know very little about tyres but the control while steering feels precise and very responsive. What matter most to me is that they also manage irregular pavement and potholes much better than my old Continentals, making the rather firm ride of the C30 a bit more comfortable. I was worried over the last months that my car was showing weaker performance but now I see it had much to do with how worn out I let my previous tyres get before replacement. TIL tyres are important.
