Dunlop Sport BluResponse Reviews

Given 59% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen bora tdi (205-55-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
when I first bought these tyres, they were so much quieter and grippier than the continentals that were on the car but after a while I noticed how fast they were wearing, i do drive the car fairly hard and found the sidewalls far too soft for quick cornering especially on a heavy front ended front wheel drive diesel. They also seem very prone to leaking a few psi which again increases the sidewall flex. Ive had better tyres that cost less. The car hasnt got any worn bushes or poor geometry either

These are the best tyres I've ever purchased. I can't comment about wear as they have only been installed for about 2000km however, I've recently discovered that Wet Grip is better than dry. I tried some 60-0 and the ABS kicks in a few times before coming to a stop. Yesterday I did the same in soaking wet (crap) roads and the car stopped in a shorter distance than dry and without ABS kicking in. I still can't believe how that is possible. To give you a better perspective, I slammed on the brakes and the car felt like it's going to do a wheelie at the back. THAT'S how good these tyres are.

I had Nexen CP661 which where great, but these, these are a whole new level of good.

Driving on mostly town for 4,000 spirited miles
Great tyre but the wear rate is shocking, I thought it was was my wife drove her golf gttdi on the school run but its not, they are a great tyre let down by the wear, false economy, after years of dunlop, time to change and spend a bit more to get longer wear I think.

My car was originally supplied with Pirelli p7s which I found to be excellent, if a little noisy on British motorways. When my second set wore out I looked for a quieter tyre and the Dunlop Bluresponse tyres were rated as much quieter with superior economy and wet grip - plus they were a little cheaper than the Pirelli's.

So far i can say the wet grip is great and they are much quieter than the P7's but I suspect they are going to wear more quickly than the Pirellis. I expected they might owing to the softer compound rubber but I can live with that in exchange for the reduced noise and improved wet grip. They really are very good tyres for the UK climate and roads

Just got Wanli S1063 replaced with Dunlop Sport BlueResponse on front wheels and I am very impressed by improvement of road feedback and dry grip. Didn't have them for long enough to comment on other qualities.

Driving on a combination of roads for 13,000 easy going miles
Perfectly capable tyre, pretty good in the wet, but let down by lousy wear, unsurprising given shoulder treads start at 4mm (confirmed by Dunlop Goodyear.) 13k miles and shoulders are down to 1mm. Off they come.

Given 60% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo 1.6 TDCi (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 10,000 average miles
So so disappointed. 2012 model 1.6 diesel Mondeo , which came factory fitted with Michelin Primacy HP's and these were typically dreadful in the wet but ok in the dry...
I'd read amazing things about the Dunlops and my choice was made for me after a serious puncture...
The grip was outstanding in the dry, tracked a true line on high speed constant radius turns, were nice and progressive in wet turns, and were quiet and reasonably comfy...
Then the shock... Less than 10k miles and they are at the 3mm line. I feel cheated , like i have thrown my cash away. If I'd known, I'd have bought conti's or pirelli's...

However have now chose Michelin Primacy 3 and these are a marked improvement on the old HP's and actually feel more comfy than the Dunlops.... won't buy these again - the wear rate is dreadful

Given 61% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Yeti 4 x 4 (215-60-16-H)
Driving on mostly country roads for 8,000 average miles
Bought these on the premise that they would wear well, have good wet grip etc. Only 8000 miles, and fronts are down to 3mm, and I wouldn't say that they had been driven that hard. Very disappointing.
