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 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo S40 D5 180BHP (205/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,000 spirited miles
I always take my time when deciding tyres. Having just come from a rubber eating Renault sport megane. I wanted something grippy but ultimately comfortable also.

Having had the bluresponse on the car for just over 4000 miles, needless to say I'm very impressed. Obviously the car isn't designed to be thrown around into bends like my previous car, but it'll still let you and the tyres do seem to have almost more grip than I have talent.

Since having them fitted, the fronts have worn 2mm and the rears just a little over a mm (heavy front end).

I can honestly say, I've never driven a tyre so quiet and comfortable, to also be that good with grip. Wet grip is also good but I don't drive like a tit when it's raining.

When they wear down, no questions, I'll replace with the same.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Rover 75 (205/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 15 average miles
Certainly the quietest tyre I've ever had fitted. Wet grip not as good as a 'premium' tyre (I tag Blue Response as a mid range) but not dreadful either, dry grip is as good as any I've used. Regarding wear I'd rate them 80% as good as a Michelin. So overall, a good buy, they tick many of the desired boxes, Driving a Rover 75 which has a quiet cabin, the Dunlop Blue Response really compliments that feature.

I am not satisfied after six months of wearing this Tyres..
At the beginning was good on handling and on wet grip and dry grip.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Mitsubishi Lancer 1.6 16V (2003 2008) (195/60 R15 H) on mostly town for 20,790 average miles
Dry grip is fenomenal and so is the wet grip. Dry breaking is very good and the ABS system kicks in only in emergency braking. Wet braking is also very good, but the ABS system will interfere sooner than it would on dry braking. I drove in heavy rain and I was confident in driving at ~100 km/h without any sign of a problem. I drove once into standing water on the first lane, doing ~55km/h and nothing bad happen, though the front right tyre was spinning around on water surface. I realised that since the revs suddenly gone higher, but the car kept its direction. Handling is good only if I inflate the tyres at a pressure of 2.1 bar as car manufacturer says to. Road feedback is strongly related to correct tyre pressure and it has to be done at least every 2 weeks to enjoy driving the car on country roads in a spirited manner. If tyre pressure is below specified value, the car feels like is on jelly tyres. Comfort on smooth tarmac/concrete is good but they tend to be a little noisy on bad tarmac/concrete roads. Wear is great considering I drove 20790 miles and the tyre tread is half as it was when new. I would buy this tyre again for sure!
