2017-12-10 - Is this tyre good and the wear of the tyre is it good or bad?

There have been no magazine wear tests of the Dunlop SP Sport FM800 but the user reviews on this website indicate the Dunlop SP Sport FM800 wears well.

2019-04-05 - Which tire is best value and better break test? Dunlop SP Sport FM800 or Toyo Proxes CF2

I have not seen these in a test together yet, sorry.

2019-08-22 - I wanted to ask what are the European labeling parameters of these tyres (wet grip, fuel efficiency and noise).

The label scores vary depending on size and part number. We don't keep records of the FM800 so it will be best to go directly to Dunlop.

2024-05-11 - Summer tyres: Suburban driving, occasional highway, smooth ride, low noise, low annual milage, wet conditions safety is a main consideration. Would you go with this tyre Dunlop SP Sport FM800 or the Continental Ultra Contact 7

I think I would probably side with the newer tyre, which is the UltraContact 7.

Very good tire in all conditions.
Good at dry, wet and cornering.
Also quiet tire.

Given 91% while driving a Skoda (205/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 60,000 average miles
I have Skoda Octavia 1.4.
Firs I had Continental EcoContact 5 (terrible tires), then I switched to the Dunlop SP Sport FM800 and it was amazing!
The dry and wet grip is great and the Straight Aqua is way batter then other tires.
The downside is the wear, I drive around 50,000 KM per year and it last less than 2 years.

Given 74% while driving a Hyundai elantra (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 2,100 average miles
Been using these tyres for about 2 weeks. So far, dry and wet grip are quite good although felt that the braking distance can be better. No fanfare or felt any loss of traction when going through a water puddles However, steering felt less precise. Notwithstanding, this is a touring tyre and I was using a UHP tyre with a ‘V’ speed rating before this set of tyres. Not sure about the wear as I have just used these tyres for about 2 weeks. All in all, a decent tyre at a reasonable price.

I used this tyre 75.000 km, nearly 8 year and all season, on all ground type (mostly in city). But cracked started on tyre. I should change a new one.

Given 89% while driving a Toyota Sienta (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 12,000 average miles
Drove these LM800s on my Toyota Sienta Hybrid (gen2 1.5L) after my three sets of Ecopia 150 & 300, Yoko V552 for fuel economy (averaged 750km before fuel indicator lights up - on City/Highway : 30/70); fuel economy dropped to about 700km but the dry and especially wet traction is exceptional. Carpark turn slippage and squeal was very much minimized. Excellent as an overall compared to previous Bridgestone Ecopia and Yokohama BlueEarth. Couldn’t find anything else better for the price. Rotated when noisy (+20k) and back to a quiet ride. Thumbs up

Given 71% while driving a Toyota Corolla Altis (195/65 R15) on a combination of roads for 34,000 spirited miles
Too much noisy tyre. Covered 54000 kms on this. Too many punctures every now and then. Steering got extremely hard. Replacing them when one of the tyres got a bulged bubble type thing on the inside. Extreme hard tyres.

Given 100% while driving a Honda FREED (195/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Very good tires. Good grip and short braking distance. Very quiet too and definitely felt lighter than my previous t005 (which were excellent too but 205mm). Cheaper than the bigger brands and so far been very confident with these tyres in wet and dry.

Given 60% while driving a Mercedes Benz (245/40 R18) on for 24,000 easy going miles
Min point of my review was to highlight the very high wear rate. I only got 24,000kms out of a set on rear of our Mercedes C200 Wagon. This is just driven around town for general family use.

Given 84% while driving a Mazda 121 (225/55 R17) on mostly town for 7,000 average miles
FM800 wasn’t official model that is brought in by DUNLOP AD in Singapore. It is made in Thailand, however the price is very competitive against big name like Michelin / Goodyear and even other official Dunlop models. My previous tyre were Bridgestone T005A that was fitted on my car that come with dealer. FM800 performance was better than T005A in most of the aspect especially over Comfort, low noise and decent grip in dry / wet.

Given 86% while driving a Ford Fiesta (195/50 R15) on a combination of roads for 70 spirited miles
I have a ford fiesta ecoboost and do spirited driving daily in South Africa. These tyres have lasted me easily over 60 000km. They are strong and deal with potholes with no issue. Grip is substantial in dry but I don't feel as confident in the wet. All in all I would definitely buy again for the price!

Given 86% while driving a Toyota Corolla (185/60 R14) on a combination of roads for 0 spirited miles
Really great semi-performance tyres. I put these on my '90s hot hatch daily. A AE92 Toyota Corolla FX GT. The dry and wet grip are excellent. Driving feel is good but not excellent. No squeal when pushed hard and very predictable tyres. These would be great on a semi performance car. I do hard launches and push my car on a daily bases. Haven't lost grip once. Stopping is also very good, tyres have great stopping power and don't lose grip and lock up. Would 100% recommend and definitely would buy again.
