    Default Dunlop tyres

    Anyone use Dunlop sport max tyres? Anyone like them/dislike them? I have been offered some for our corsa but not had much experience of using them. I'm very picky when it comes to tyres lol any old crap just won't do!

    I have been tempted to try these but always stick to Goodyear as I have had a few sets of them now and I rate them.

    Yes I have Goodyear on there at the moment and I too rate them and will probabaly be my choice. But as I have been offered a set I thought I would seek some opinions

    Personally I think Dunlop are a soft compound tyre and do wear pretty quick

    Does low Fule Efficiency - E, F, G, come hand in hand with grip? Or can you get grippy af tyres but 'A' Efficiency?

    They're not linked.
    The wet grip is rated by stopping distances in a controlled wet environment. While it has some correlation, it's not truly representative of lateral grip.

    Efficiency is based on rolling resistance and may not always hold true to real world figures. It's reasonable for straight line driving, but if you've lots of grip in the corners, you may end up using less fuel as you don't need to shed as much speed going into the corners and building it back up after with acceleration.

    Contact Pirelli. They may inspect and replace them.

    I bought a Corsa VXR in July and all 4 tyres needed changing (backs were Kumhos with low tread and fronts were Continentals Contisports 5s and had both been run flat). Was thinking about Goodyear Eagle F1s or Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2s. In the end I went for a full set of Dunlop. The grip I get in the dry is far superior to both the Kumhos and Continentals! Wet grip is hard to tell because I didn't really dry it hard with the old tyres in the wet. Dry grip is amazing though - best tyres I have owned for dry grip!
