    The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres are doing well in wet weather conditions. If you need a sustainable supply of tyres, these tyres constitute the best choice for you. They are especially god in a rainy weather. I cannot rate them in terms of driving in snow and slush because I did not have an opportunity to test them in such conditions. Their braking distance is very good. The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 model was designed for intensive and long-term use because it consists of a special innovative rubber compound. Therefore, if you are looking for some hard-wearing tyres, they will be one of the best money can buy. I saw many tests of these tyres and I know that they are really durable and pretty resistant to different kinds of mechanical damage and abrasions. I do recommend them.

    Ideally, the car responds to mud, snow or tight corners, on icy roads (without speed frenzy and nervous movements). I am not an expert in comparing details and I will not interpret the properties of the tire, because I do not know about it, but as a driver I can say that the tires did not let me down this winter and I recommend it :)

    I am not a tyre specialist but I must admit that I felt a significant difference between my previous tyres (Continental Conti 850) and Dunlop Winter Sport 5. I purchased these tyres because they have really good reviews. I have very positive impressions and I would like to recommend them to everybody. My driving style is quite aggressive. I usually drive on non-urban roads, less frequently in a city or on a highway. The tyres provide an excellent grip. It feels like they were sticked to the road. It is really astonishing. They do their job even on ice and in deep snow and slush. Although their grip is superb the ABS system in my car had to operate from time to time but it is rather an obvious phenomenon in winter conditions. When the temperature goes down the tyres get even better and better. What is more, the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres are definitely quieter than my old ones. Wet and dry weather conditions are not an obstacle for them. I will stick with Dunlop from now and I will go for tyres from this manufacturer again in the nearest future. The tyres are good-looking. Driving a car on these Dunlops gives you a feeling of a confidence on the road. Despite the fact that they are pure winter tyres, they can be used as all-season ones. I think that in summer season they would behave as good as in winter one. In conclusion I can say only that the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres are one of the best money can buy in this size. They are definitely worth their price. I am glad I purchased them.

    I decided to purchase the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres quite a long time ago. They were not cheap but I took into consideration their overall performance, good reviews, nice labeling and therefore I decided to buy a set. The tyres provide a road safety and there is no more important thing when it comes to driving a car. I have done approximately 2000 miles in different weather conditions (wet roads, heavy rain, slush, snow and ice). I have a rich experience in driving (I am a driver for more than 34 years and I've done more than 1 million miles. My driving style is rather not an aggressive one. I have only one thing to say - the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres are superb and I do not regret buying them. I had Pirelli Sottozero winter tyres previously mounted on my vehicle and I had some problems with balancing and a wheel alignment. My Honda Accord was skidding in corners and I experienced some problems while driving in deeper snow. Now I have a sense of comfort in all conditions. Even in these most demanding. I tested these tyres in slush and on a wet road and my Honda sticks to the road. The noise level of the tyres is very low. They are really quiet. Driving is extremely comfortable on these tyres despite the fact that I have a hard suspension (typical of Honda). Concluding, the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres are worth their price. It is better to spend a bit more money in order to feel safe in winter. I recommend these tyres to all drivers who look for safety and comfort.

    I cannot say a lot about the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres as I drove on them less than 3000 miles. I decided to purchase these tyres because my friend had them in his vehicle. I will rate them properly after some time but now it is too early. The tyres were exchanged very smoothly. They were properly balanced and now I keep testing them. I have noticed that they are astonishingly quiet and they provide an excellent grip on a dry road. You cannot hear them even at a high speed. They are not so good on ice but it is rather an obvious thing that there are no winter tyres dedicated to driving on ice. I think they are doing well in snow and slush. The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyres are one of the best value for money priced in mid-sixty range GBP per tyre fitted and balanced to wheels. I have read that Dunlop engineers put a significant effort to focus on aquaplaning performance and fuel efficiency. Thanks to that the tyres are lighter and more responsive in winter weather conditions. To sum up, there are lots of good tyres in this size but I think that the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 are the best and I would like to recommend them to everybody. Great tyres for a reasonable price!

Product description

Dunlop Winter Sport 5 225/45 R18 95 V XL, MFS

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Technical description: When designing the Dunlop Winter Sport 5, the manufacturer focused on including the best elements of its predecessor, the Dunlop Winter Sport 4D. The model offers 10-13% better performance specifications than its excellent predecessor.

Which performance specifications have been improved? Traction on snow and ice, control and grip on all wet winter surfaces and a reduction in fuel consumption. All of these improvements are thanks to the latest technology used and the years of experience of Dunlop and the entire Goodyear group.

Excellent driveability and shorter braking distances in even the most difficult winter conditions? This is precisely what the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 aims to offer. Tests carried out by Dunlop before launching the tyre confirmed that they had in fact succeeded in this aim and all thanks to the tyre's innovative asymmetric tread pattern with additional blocks. This unique tread pattern, combined with the latest generation material used, ensures excellent grip.



The tyre disperses water and slush exceptionally well thanks to deeper grooves all over the surface of the Dunlop Winter Sport 5, making the tyre highly resistant to aquaplaning (skidding on wet surfaces).

The numerous curved blades all over the tyre bite into the surface, which also improves grip. What does this mean for you? Problem-free acceleration, braking and climbing uphill on slippery surfaces.

Label

The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tyre in size 225/45 R18 95 V, according to the manufacturer's information, has the following drivability qualities:

  • C
  • B
  • 71 dB
C B 71 dB

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Noise

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
