Latest Group Test Results

2016 AutoBild UHP Summer Tyre Test - 6th of 6 tyres

  • Positive - SHort braking in the wet and dry
  • Negative - Poor handling and oversteer balance in the wet
  • Overall - Satisfactory

2012 EVO Max Performance Tyre Test - 7th of 10 tyres

  • Overall - Echoing our own long term test findings, while the Dunlop Sport Maxx GT offers excellent grip in the wet and dry, it's somewhat let down by the average steering feel it provides.

2012 Sport Auto Summer Tyre Test - 5th of 9 tyres

  • Overall - As far as the safety-relevant test such as braking or aquaplaning so, the Dunlop Sport Maxx GT the best in the field.

    Not the fastest tyre in the dry but the Dunlop has a good balance, in the wet there is understeer.

Top Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT Review

Given 96% while driving a Audi A5 2.0TFSI Quattro (255/35 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 21,000 average miles
These were the OE fitment for my Audi A5 Quattro.

I have had ~21,000 miles out of the fronts, with a mixed style of driving.

I would have expected much less, due to being low profile tyres, being on a relatively big / heavy car and a mix of driving style. I am very impressed with the wear rates.

I have no complaints with the grip levels provided in wet or dry. They are a great combination with Audi's quattro system.

I would have been tempted to change to the Michelin Pilot Super Sports as the fronts have recently worn out. However from reading up on the Quattro system and mixing patterns front and back, I have decided to keep the keep the front and rear tyres the same. Do your research and make your own decision on this...

Great tyres!

Given 63% while driving a Audi A7 Bi Turbo black edition (275/30 R21) on mostly town for 5,000 average miles
I drive a Audi A7 Quattro. These tyres are good when new but are lasting not even a year and around 5000 miles. Have so far replaced 7 tyres due to inner side wall splits. These are the most dangerous tyres I have ever purchased. The splits show no sign of coming they just happen when driving. The car is totally standard. They are now being replaced with Continentals.

Given 21% while driving a Jaguar F Type coupe (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 300 spirited miles
I had the Dunlop Sport 01 prior to this and only had these fitted because I left the dealer to fit new tyres at a service. This was a poor decision as these are the worst performing tyres I have ever had. They have no grip in the dry let alone the wet. I now have no confidence in the cornering of my F-Type, which prior to these being fitted, went round corners like it was on rails.
