Dunlop SP Sport 01

Tyre details: The Dunlop SP Sport 01 offers outstanding performance and a pleasant drive in any road and weather conditions. The tyre's asymmetric tread is divided into three independent zones responsible for different features, such as resistance to aquaplaning, driving comfort and sporty performance. The cutting-edge silica-enhanced compound used to manufacture the tyre improves grip on wet roads, and the specially profiled tread blocks guarantee the rapid dispersal of water from under the tyre. The Dunlop SP Sport 01 has been designed to cancel out the most irritating audible frequencies and therefore delivers a quiet and comfortable drive in any conditions, whereas the tread pattern has been designed for even wear in order to improve mileage performance and driving comfort.

By preventing heat build-up and maintaining its shape even in extreme conditions, the tyre offers superb handling at high speed as well as precision in negotiating corners and greater stability during dynamic, sporty manoeuvres. The tyre features a number of innovations which improve both the performance and the safety of the Dunlop SP Sport 01. These include the rim protection system, which is located on the tyre's sidewall and creates a protective buffer zone to prevent mechanical damage to the rim such as edge wear.

Dunlop is among the brands which belong to the US-owned Goodyear Group, and is particularly well-known for its successes in the field of motor sports. Dunlop was the official tyre supplier for the British Touring Car Championship between 2003 and 2006, and also supplies tyres for the 8 Supercars Championship. The company specialises in high-performance tyres (HP and UHP) which deliver outstanding handling during sports and dynamic driving. Dunlop tyres are popular among both drivers and specialists, as can be seen from the many successes achieved by the brand in independent tyre tests.

    Dunlop SP Sport 01 are not that expensive if you take their performance under consideration. I was thinking about going for SP9000 but I finally decided to go for Dunlop SP Sport 01 and I do not regrett it. Thanks to the mid part of the tread you can almost forget about the torque steer in your powerfull FWD (my car has 230bhp). On dry tarmac they are very good, but while cornering aggresively the outter part of the tyre rubbs of pretty quickly. Any other part of the tread is quite resistance to the attriction. Dunlop SP Sport 01 are the most silent tyres that I ever had in my life. The image is not that awesome, but for me the look of the tyre is not the most crucial thing. Dunlop SP Sport 01 is intended to improve car control and safety. I have W index, but I had no opportunity to drive more than 130 MPH. I do recommend them for sure.

    I got those Dunlop SP Sport 01 with my new car. They seemed to be new (they still had those coloured stripes on the tread surface). About 7-8 mm of the tread left. RIght now I have made about 20k miles on them. I still have about 4mm tread left. I drive dynamically and it doesn't natter if it is in the city or outside of it. I do fast cornering, I like to move-off dynamically as well. On dry road surface Dunlop SP Sport 01 behaves very well. I have no restrictions in regards to it's dry road performance. On wet road surface their grip is still ok, the problem starts with moving-off on wet road surface. In addition I have quite a few horses in my Vectra so I like to show those youngsters on the traffic lights how a Vauxhall can perform. All in all Dunlop SP Sport 01 is a decent tyre and I do recommend them for sure.

    Very good tyres. Some time ago I've had Barums fitted to my car and Dunlop SP Sport 01 are way better. Very durable and silent tyres. I am an agressive driver so I do not spare my tyres at all. I brake very agressively as well. For now Dunlop SP Sport 01 perform very good in my car and they are definitely worth my recommendation. On those tyres your driving comfort will upgrade for sure. You can feel their awesomeness almost on every road surface. It does not matter whether is rainy or sunny. Dunlop SP Sport 01 are going to do their job no matter what the road condition is. All in all I will never ever buy other tyres than Dunlops. Their quality is just top class and I recomend those tyres to all the people out there who would like to have a better driving comfort in their cars.
