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 70% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus MK2 1.6TDCI 2008-2011 (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
I've had these tyres on my 1.6 Ford Focus for the last 18 months.

The good - the grip is really great.

The bad - I've only done 10,000 miles on them and the thread is very low. They will need to be replaced in the next 1,000 miles. Very bad mileage out of a premium tyre.

To be fair I do push the tyres a little but I'm certainly not a boy racer. I've loved the tyres while the grip was good but I don't think I could justify buying them again.

Latest Dunlop Sport BluResponse Reviews

Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf MK6 1.6 tdi (220/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
Very impressed with this tyre at first. Exceptional grip, performance, fuel economy, comfort, the works!! I drove from Swansea to Margate and reached 72 MPG with these at AVG speed of 69mph. Exceptional.

I reached about 7K miles and realised the outer edges were scuffing BADLY. Had the camber/caster checked by VW. Apparently fixed. Reached 12K miles and now they have started showing threads out of the scuff marks. Needed to be replaced. FRONT TYRES ONLY! Back tyres are still 6cm of tread throughout.

So. My advice for someone getting these for a VW. Rotate them around 5K so that you do not blow them like I did.

Not cheap but worth every penny!

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a Ford S-Max (215/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 18,000 easy going miles
Had a set of these on the front of our Ford SMAX TDCI 2ltr. I drive very, very conservatively and managed to get 18,000 miles out of them. Always felt confident when driving with no issues at all, just felt right. I could have used cheaper tyres but as usual I was swayed by my perception of brand quality over unknowns and I'm quite happy with my decision. The car was never pushed to any limits and was driven in various weather conditions both motorway and roads without ever making me doubt their grip. Overall a good buy.

Given 57% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Megane Sports Tourer (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 65 average miles
Shocking tyre for the price. Barely done 20,000 and now they're classed illegal!!

Maybe that's the rub, they drive well and have a grip of velcro in the dry. But that does not mean they should just wear away so quickly. I drive motorway at constant speed on cruise.

The wear on the outer side of the tyre - due to its sidewall softness - is unbelievable.

No I will not buy this tyre again.
