Latest Group Test Results

2011 Autobild Max Performance Summer Tyre Test - 7th of 10 tyres

  • Positive - Good tires balanced without ups and downs, good aquaplaning safety reserves and short braking distances on wet and dry roads.
  • Negative - Slightly less grip in wet conditions, moderate ride comfort.

2011 Auto Zeitung Max Performance Tyre Test - 3rd of 14 tyres

  • Overall - The agile Sport Maxx TT speaks to the sporty driver

2011 Auto Express Ultra High Performance Tyre Test - 7th of 10 tyres

  • Overall - The now dated Dunlop Sport Maxx TT had a “middle of the road” performance, not excelling in any area but not failing in any area other than rolling resistance. The replacement to the Dunlop Sport Maxx TT should be an exciting tyre.

Questions and Answers for the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TT

2016-04-07 - I have a Ford Focus that recommends 31psi for my Dunlop 235/40 18ZR tyres. The supplier recommended 35 psi as they are low profile .any suggestions on what are the best pressures

The Ford pressure will have been recommended based on a low profile tyre for that particular vehicle, but it doesn't always mean it's correct for your driving style. We'd suggest trying both pressures and seeing which you prefer, all while keeping an eye on the tyre to ensure it is wearing evenly at your chosen pressure.

Mazda (215/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
Well originally fitted on Mazda 3 BN 25SP GT Hatch, so fare lasted 32.5K Miles and still going pass the service and expected to last for another 4.3K making over 37K Miles in total, think that is a good score as I'm heavy footer when to comes driving, accelerating and cornering. Have to say I did put nitrogen from begging and think it make a different.

Given 57% while driving a Mazda 3 Series (215/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
These are the Mazda 3 stock tyres.

Poor dry grip, enough for average driving in highways but not recommended for spirited driving.
On wet conditions are a completely disaster, dangerous on sharp curves, very poor braking and handling.
Average comfort, bad fuel consumption and very expensive for what these tyres offer.

Not recommended at all.

Given 47% while driving a BMW 328i (225/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 6,000 easy going miles
Runflats fitted to BMW 328i (2013). Noisy, harsh ride, poor handling and steering. Grip was OK when fully warmed up in the dry but not good in the wet. Overall, the performance was so bad that I scrapped the tyres after 6000 miles even though plenty of tread left. Michelin non-runflat are much nicer in all respects.
