Mercedes Benz A140 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Dunlop Winter Response 2 given 97% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 2000 average miles
Bought these tyres especially for their wet grip performance, which according to several tests is about as good as the grip of Continental ts850 or Goodyear Ultragrip9. Snow performance also seems to be great but the Dutch winters are pretty mild so we hardly get any snow.

Driving in wet conditions I have to conclude these tyres are outstanding; very good grip and they feel very 'planted'. Compared to winter response 1 which I had before I feel the wet grip is better. Compared to my summer tyres (michelin energy saver +) these tyres offer (much) better grip in the rain/ on wet roads and for sure when there would be any snow or ice the winter tyres would offer much much better grip. When the temperature goes down I will anyway benefit from the Dunlop winter tyres, whether we get snow or not.

On the dry these tyres perform about the same as the summer tyres, with less understeer. On the wet they offer better grip and the handling is truly excellent. The rolling resistance is low and so far I don't notice any difference in fuel economy with my summer tyres, which is great. Very much recommended!

Very comfortable and quiet tyre, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the wet grip. It's an old type but check the reviews on oponeo and you"ll see it got lots of happy users. Got them with my occassion car together with Michelins energy for summer. The Dunlops are more comfortable, quiter and give a more stable driving experience.

Very poor wet grip, I've never seen the ESP light flickering so often. Almost impossible to make quick getaways on damp or wet roads. Fine in the dry though, quiet and stable. Dread to think what the increase in stopping distance over proper tyres is with these in the rain though!
