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 37% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Yeti (205/55 R16 W) on mostly country roads for 6,000 average miles
WASTE OF MONEY: I bought a pair of Dunlop Sport BluResponse tyres in December 2016. At the time I chose the brand Dunlop as I thought that it had a good name. I fitted the tyres at the front of my 3 year old Yeti 1.4 diesel Greenline which had done under 40,000 miles on the original Continental tyres that were from new. It is now April and the car has done at the most 6,000 miles and I have 4mm left of thread. My 3 year old original Continental back tyres that have more thread than the 4 month old front Dunlop tyres. Yes they are quiet, have average grip and have good fuel efficiency but i give them zero longevity. I intend to stay well clear away from Dunlop or Good year for that reason.

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a Opel vectra c (195/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 28,000 average miles
After 45.000 km (on heavy car - 1350kg), I can say that these tyres are awesome. Last long, comfortable, superb handling. All the best I can say for them. I'll buy them again.

Given 75% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 118d (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 1,000 easy going miles
Replacing the runflats on my BMW 118d, I chose these for the high wet and dry grip ratings and noise levels. While it took a bit of experimentation to get the pressures right (31 front, 30 rear) these are much quieter and more comfortable than the Hankook runflats I had on before. The noise is more of a white noise hiss than the typical roar of a tyre. Very good.

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta mk7 (195/50 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Fitted these to my 2009 1.25 Fiesta, I found these tyres great handling and quiet, with astonishing wet grip and cornering.
However on a modestly powered and lightweight car within less than 8000 miles, mainly driven on local A and B roads they have shown considerable wear, particularly on the front driven wheels, while I would expect the fronts to wear quicker on a front wheel drive vehicle, I feel the amount of wear is excessive for the mileage covered. I will be trying Goodyear EfficentGrip Perfomance which are similarly priced hopefully they will offer similar performance with better durability.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Bravo (205/55 R16 H) on mostly town for 16 miles
Excellent in dry grip is very good I would say the same for wet handling...But on the wear I can say after approximately 25.000 klms some cracks on the center line of the tyre were a bit of inconvenient..Generally I drive approximately 10.000 klms per year in all road conditions and I have for 33.000 klms... Regarding the label for fuel consumption I would personally say no big deal...In general I am happy with them compared to Continental premium contact 2 that my car came with...Would by them again.
