Tyre Test Highlights

2014 Auto Express Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 10 tyres

  • Overall - Best in dry braking, wet braking, straight aquaplaning and second only to the Goodyear in rolling resistance, the Dunlop blends a huge array of qualities into one tyre, finishing in the top three places six times out of nine tests. Let down slightly by wet cornering, finishing last, but only 2% and 1/10th of a second slower than the winner. A fantastic blend of qualities make the Dunlop a worthy winner

2013 ACE Summer Touring Tyre Test - 1st of 16 tyres

2013 Auto Zeitung Summer Tyre Test - 1st of 12 tyres

  • Overall - A well balanced tyre, extremely strong in both the wet and dry means the new Dunlop Sport BluResponse is the test winner

Questions and Answers for the Dunlop Sport BluResponse

2016-07-10 - What is the difference between the Dunlop Bluresponse 195/55R16 87H and 87V , apart from the price !

The V rated construction of the Sport BluResponse is rated to a higher maximum speed (130 mph for H, 150 mph for V), but in reality unless you plan on travelling faster than 130 mph there would be likely be no noticeable differences between the two models.

2016-08-18 - Should the tyre pressures be different because my new tyres look a bit flat. I can roll the car side to side

The tyre pressures for the Dunlop Sport BluResponse should be as your manufacturer specified. Some people are finding a few extra PSI in modern low rolling resistance tyres are helping stability. If you decide to over inflate, keep an eye on wear to make sure the tyre is wearing evenly.

Top Dunlop Sport BluResponse Review

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a Mitsubishi Lancer 1.6 (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 13,392 average miles
Since I fitted these tyres in 2013 I did 21552 km and I am pleased with wear. I think they will last at least 45000 km, or even more, as I drive normally, anticipating traffic. Dry grip is very good by my standards, as well as wet grip. I experienced straight aquaplaning as I drove with 55km/h in standing water and nothing bad happened, so these tyres are very good. I had to brake hard in both dry and wet conditions, and they did grip well. In conclusion I'm more than pleased with Dunlop Sport BlueResponse. Surely I'll buy them again.

Given 33% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (195/50 R15) on mostly motorways for 30,000 average miles
Fitted Dunlop Sport BluReponse on a Ford Fiesta 1.25 as they were supposed to give similar fuel saving and longevity as Michelin Energy Savers I had previously, but were about 15% cheaper to buy. Driving mostly motorway mileage while alone in the car (low stress). Tyres on the rear wheels wore just as fast as the front, and all four tyres wore unevenly at the shoulders (I keep my tyre pressures slightly high for motorway runs, so they should wear at centre, not shoulders) and also loose balance by about 25% of their wear life, spoiling ride comfort and handling. Tracking was checked several times during the life of the tyres and was always OK, so it was the tyres at fault, not the car. At about 75% life, one rear (low stressed) tyre developed a large bulge between centre-tread and the shoulder and rapidly (over about 1000miles during 1 week) wore through the remaining tread and 2 layers of the steel bands. Fortunately I investigated the severe vibration and found the defect before it blew out, as this would have been potentially fatal. I'll never by a Dunlop Tyre again, and would advise that no-one else does either. The tyres didn't even give the claimed fuel efficiency for which they were bought.

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Passat 2.0TDI (215/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
I mounted tyres 2 years ago. I drove around 15000km/ 10000 miles with those tyres. I am ok with handling and grip. For that i gave a good point. On the other hand wear is at maximum, they look even worst then my Pirelli P7 mounted by factory 7 years ago in 2010. Conclusion this is like a FORMULA 1 tyre: lasts for 10 laps with max grip and then change.
My car is a passsat with 140HP - family car NOT FORMULA 1 car. I am disappointed for this aspect.
I think they can do better then this.

Given 96% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Octavia estate (195/65 R15 H) on mostly motorways for 19,160 easy going miles
Very good tyre. I drive daily through a mounting pass and since O got these tyres two years ago it's been real pleasure to speed on the turns. Very stable grip. Wear is promising. I think to be far from halflife as of now. So far very stable on wet. I didn't have any aquaplanning to observe behaiviour since I drive very cautiously. I obay safety first rule because of the bodies I've seen on the road. I think milage and long life pays off the little extra cost. Keeping cruising speed at no more than 100 km/h I get below 5.0 l/100km.
