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 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

2013 54 Tyre Braking Test - 1st of 54 tyres

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 100% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Roomster (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 100 easy going miles
Have bought two 195/55 H15 for the front of my Skoda and felt an immediate improvement in noise levels and ride quality as soon as I drove out of the the tyre fitter's garage! Was so impressed a couple of miles down the road that I seriously considered going back to buy two more for the rears. Only my wife stopped me by reminding me how I'd been complaining earlier in the day about all the expenses that were "piling up". Paid £140.98 fitted for the pair at National Tyres, which was a good price, as many others were quoting £80 - 90 ea for this tyre and other suitable brands. Puttingg price to one side though, I decided on the Dunlop's as I was impressed by the good ratings given in each class for economy, wet weather performance and noise levels. On the basis of my limited experience so far (re the excellent noise levels and ride quality) I hope the high test ratings for economy and braking performance will also be born out as I clock up further miles. Am looking forward to fitting a further two to the rear as soon as I've worn the originals further, and The Good Lady gives permission!

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Avensis estate 1.8 petrol (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
Good tyres but do not last long. Have been using for the last four years. Been changing my front ones twice in a year. They do wear a lot. Do around 12k miles a year. Bit expensive for my test. Otherwise they're quiet, handles my car well and really grips in corners.

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Mazda 6 (225/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
I have these tyres fitted to my 2.0 l Mazda 6 but will fit something different next time. They have done about 15k miles but the tread on both the inside and outside edges has virtually disappeared. I check the tyre pressures monthly and have had the tracking and suspension checked. The grip is generally OK in most conditions. Road noise seems to have increased with wear.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Fabia 1.2 (195/55 R15) on a combination of roads for 8,500 easy going miles
Had these tyres fitted approx. 12 months ago and have done about 8500 miles on the rear of my Skoda Fabia, I paid approx. £62/£63 for them and at that price where very good value, although they seem to have gone up in price now, good in both dry and wet weather, very little road noise and seem to be lasting on the rear well. I would buy these tyres again IF I was happy with the price and could get them for under £70.
