Top Dunlop Sport Maxx 050 Plus Review

Given 57% while driving a Lexus RX350 (235/55 R20 V) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
Actually i m using sp sport maxx 050 instead of 050 plus. It was an OE tire for my 2016 lexus rx350 f sport. Well, i comment this tire is just above average after using for more than 5000km. It works fine when dry but really slippery when wet, not to mention how it performs when aquaplaning. Cant tell any on wear but i think it can last quite long for an average driver like me. All in all, if u sure urself is a mild driver then take it, otherwise go for some others.
Would not use again and probably go for goodyear or continental.

Given 88% while driving a Chevrolet 2012 Cruze (225/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
I had continental premium contact 5 on 205/65R15, then I changed the rims with Dunlop Maxx 050+, I can say there is a huge difference in handling for Dunlop but braking performance is slightly lower than Continental.

Handling & Cornering: Excellent
Braking: Average

Note: I'm driving on dry roads.

Dunlop Japan’s flagship tyre. OE was Dunlop SP Sport 01, made in Germany. Didn’t manage to find the limit of those tyres. Max 050 plus made in Japan is completely different from Max 050 - much bigger blocks for better performance. These seem better all round than Sport 01, except lower life according to treadwear rating. Sport 01 did 50,000 miles.

Given 79% while driving a BMW 535i Gran Turismo (275/40 R19) on mostly town for 500 average miles
Generally a good value mid performance touring tyre for summer. Cost 1/3 lesser than PZ4, about 10-15% cheaper, am satisfied with the car overall performance. Replace this over my Primacy RFT.

Bought new is250 gen.III with these stock Tyres Dunlop sp sport maxx 050 (not plus). Compare to old model so sport maxx it’s better but so much.
It goes straight as you want brakes good but it’s rather stiff and uncomfortable (stiffy and noisy).
Right now it’s 65000km on a clock and front Tyres are worn in internal sides because of front suspension geometry.
When they are totally worn I would buy Goodyear’s eagle 5 or Michelin Pilot 4.

Given 79% while driving a Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Wagon (235/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 16,000 spirited miles
Managed to get a good deal on them and that was the best part. Review comments are based on my expectations for a UHP tyre. Lateral grip and braking performance fell short of my expectations, hence this would not be a tyre to recommend for any Track activity. It is resistant to aquaplaning though and was always confident driving through standing water. Steering response was good, it made the car feel more nimble. At high speed in a straight line (155) it was acceptably stable. NVH levels were low, good. I changed out before reaching the wear indicators.
