Given 49% while driving a Lexus RX300 (235/55 R18 V) on mostly motorways for 4,000 average miles
They tyre did deform in few months constant driving, no holes on the road to get.. Bought 4 and 3 of them have deformed and the vibrations are felt on stering but also by passengers. On the balance machine it is visible better how the rotation is not correct. Made videos with my phone on each tyre - as have them under replacement procedure now by dealer. So, nice tyre if it does not get deformed. It is quiet one, good handling on dry. Not so good on wet, loosing grip cornering. But deformed, is unacceptable, will not buy again. My car is suv approx 2000kg. Maybe for lighter car is not an issue. No clue.

Given 95% while driving a Honda CRV (235/65 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
I wanted a cheaper alternative to michelin pilot sport 4 and pirelli so I have recently had the Dunlops fitted I immediately noticed how quiet the road noise is with the Dunlops and the grip levels in dry conditions and especially wet considering February this year broke records for rainfall in UK these tyres inspire confidence particularly on roads with poor drainage and braking inspires confidence too the ride feels quite stiff or taut but not uncomfortable and for the price I feel Dunlop offer an excellent alternative to my previous favourite brands but how they wear will determine if they are truly value for money over Michelin or the pirelli brands

The tyres are fitted on a SUV 4x4 permanent. 2.2 bar front and rear.
Usual use of the car is out side of the town, highways etc. Usually the car is stopped and there is a risk of deformation of the tyres, even if the usual stop is 2-3 days, sometimes even 2 weeks. Not sure about their resistance on deformation due to not daily use !

Pros.
Very quiet at any speed, good handling, predictable, never drifted on dry road, drifting on wet and very predictable so no surprises.
Cons. Have some vibrations, not sure the reason, if the tyres got deformed or other reason, just to have some attention in this direction in case you do not drive daily.
Was not ready for the first snow yesterday, absolutely avoid driving with those in snow. zero handling in downhill no braking effect at all, quite dangerous. Of course those are for summer use, so not to consider this as negative aspect of the tire, just wanted to warn you :)
good luck
