Given 60% while driving a Nissan GT R (285/35 R20 W) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Great grip in the dry, acceptable in the wet, very good feedback but extremely noisy, they sell them only in Nissan dealership and they are incredibly expensive

Not cheap, but superior to similarly priced European brands.

Given 31% while driving a BMW 530d (225/40 R18) on mostly motorways for 15,000 easy going miles
I have had these tyres on the front of my BMW for 15,000 miles and they have been terrible. They have gone out of shape and make a loud grinding noise on most road surfaces. The local garage told me I should replace them even though there is lots of tread left.

Given 70% while driving a Subaru 2008 subaru impreza sti (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 18,000 spirited miles
They lasted much longer than expected with agressive driving. Good dry grip, agile tyres but too noisy. Having other options that are better at the same price, i would rather not buy these again.

Stunning tyres, better than the Bridgestones, too bad Dunlop have limited supply to the nissan dealers so you get ripped off buying them. Import them from tirerack in the us, much cheaper!

Given 87% while driving a Evolution (245/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Having driven on Dunlop SP 600 tyres fitted to a Mitsubishi Evolution X for only two months(and 2000 miles from date purchase) I can't comment significantly on tyre wear - partly because I bought the car as a demo with close to 1000 miles on it. The initial tyre wear at the time of delivery seemed relatively high, consistent with some hard test drives. I will say that considering how much I love to push the car I'm not unhappy with the rate of wear since.

I was prepared to be dissatisfied with the SP600s based on reports I had read. However, the adhesion levels have been ridiculously high. I've never before driven a car that could encourage me to progressively increase cornering speeds and maneuver so much more aggresively, pleasure me and scare me, all at the same time, to the point of finding my hands shaking upon exiting the car; I have owned Porsches, Nissan 300 ZX twin turbos, a 7 litre Cobra Jet Mustang, a 5.7 litre Chev Monaro, and driven a 426 Hemi Charger and Ferraris.

The ride seemed excessively harsh until a tyre pressure check three days ago revealed 37 psi all round. Granted this would have been partly due a very warm summers' day in Australia. Mitsubishi recommend 32 front and 29 rear (cold). I settled on 34 front and 31 rear. As a result the ride is more comfortable but the Evo seems to have lost some of its incredible edge.

I've read and heard that lower pressures are better for tight twisting roads because there is more rapid and higher tyre temperature increase. I think however, for country drives with fewer extreme curves and more long sweepers, I'd opt for higher pressures.

To sum up the tires feel great, but how much of the handling is due to the Evo x's computerised computerised anti skid and yaw control? Obviously a lot.

My tire specialist tells me that Pirreli P Zero Rosso would be the ultimate replacement, or in second place Yokohama A 041.

PS. My tire specialist has just informed me that his staff would have inflated the tyre pressures to 36 psi cold when I was last there. Apparently if you don't run high pressures your tyres get chopped around, which probably explains why I was there - replacing a near new tyre. Considering there's no spare tyre on an Evo it's another reason to drive with higher pressures. Getting a tip tray truck to take you to get a replacement tyre is time consuming and inconvenient, not to mentionion embarrassing and expensive. A narrower than standard wheel and tyre are on my acquisition list for spare use.

PPS.
I haven't yet found the limit of dry handling capability - As previously mentioned much credit must go to the car.

I did manage to spin one of the wheels in the wet for an instant, but there was no sense of loss of directional control.

This is the right way to spell "definItely"
