Questions and Answers for the Dunlop SP Sport Fast Response

2016-07-27 - I have always had "Dunlop SP Sport Fast Response" tyres, fitted to my Vectra 2.2. My local dealer now only supplies "Dunlop (BLUE) Response" tyres. Is the (Blue Response) Tyre a better or direct replacement, or can I still get the "Fast Response" Tyres?

The Dunlop Sport BluResponse is Dunlops latest tyre in this segment so can be used to replace the Dunlop Sport Fast Response.

205 55 r16 Dunlop SP sport fast response

I recently bought a set of second hand wheels. They came equipped with these tires. They have dot 20.11 and still have a few mm on them.
After several hundreds of kilometers on the highway, I can say that they do well for 8 years old tires.
I'm going to buy new ones, but I'm not sure what to buy ...

Awesome tires!
Im a sporty type of driver,fast turns,hard brakes...these tires are my heroes.
Dont know about the "C" category of wet braking/
handling because these tires brake excellent on wet surfaces and feel very adherent.

Given 84% while driving a Mazda 3 Series (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 14,500 average miles
[Mazda3 mk1 1.6 petrol TS2 4dr saloon, 55/Jan 2006 plate]

I bought these tyres when my car was 6yo as the previous OEM Bridgestone ER30s where very noisy (only after 6 months from new) and had got very poor in the wet, even if they had lasted very well (still 4-5mm all around).

The new Dunlops were far better on these fronts, and very good in the dry as well, as well as holding up nicely: 5-6mm on the fronts, 6mm on the rears (7mm when new). Just as economical (mpg) as the (hard) Bridgestones were - I'm still getting 40-41mpg average over the year on a similar journey profile.

A good, solid all-rounder, and good value for money (£72 [each] fitted price back in Aug 2012 at local fitter, sourced via national online retailer [delivered to fitter] + 4x Tesco pts).
