Given 84% while driving a Ford Fiesta mk7 (195/50 R15) on mostly town for 20,000 spirited miles
It is very good you name it in every aspects, except wet grip, especially under braking. It is not bad under heavy rain as it cuts through water well without losing traction. But I would expect a premium brand should give you more grip when the road is wet but without standing water. Recommended for everyday drivers who slow down when cornering on slippery road.

I used it on Honda Mobilio 2019 for almost a year and 20.000 kilometers. Perfect in comfort, handling, dry grip and super quiet noise road. But worse in when it Rain, and nightmare when Aquaplanning.

Very quiet and handles well for a touring tire. Not expecting high speed cornering grip as I use the tire for its intended purpose, for comfort and longevity.

Given 56% while driving a Peugeot 206 1.6 16v NFX (185/65 R14) on mostly country roads for 30,000 average miles
In dry roads has normal grip and it's ok but in wet and specialy Ice & Snow It has no grip. In wet it's more better than snow but in snow it's really awful! I lose my grip several times in the snow road and I save my car with hard tries for getting stable.
It's comfort, mostly touring tyre and if you want a touring and soft tyre this model of Dunlop keeps you satisfied.

Given 59% while driving a BMW x1 25i x drive (235/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 60,000 spirited miles
it is a great comfort tyre with the lowest price in the market, much cheaper than yokomaha db, the wear can do 50,000km easy. the comfort is created by the soft side wall therefore there is almost no handling. i have driven many cars and mostly sport car with manual gearbox, these LM705 you MUST NOT push under wet condition, even just little rain, NEVER drive with this tyre over 120km/h on wet road. YOU WILL GET KILLED. the wet braking is super weak, easy to start grift in low speed corner. i try the pressure start from 28psi all the way up to 40psi, the best comfort setting is 34psi and the better handling with 37psi. the good dry grip is only maintain the first 15,000km.

My initial Review on these tires Dunlop LM705/Lemans-V ( Asia Market )
Previous Dunlop tire experience was Blu response European tire.
Done (4K miles) They seem ok until now it's too early break in period " 4 months " wait until winter have a better option on them.
1. High comfortable tire low nose
2. Good dry breaking
3. Handling ok
4. At least Made in Japan
My next review will have allround feedback on Summer/Winter conditions.

Given 69% while driving a Toyota Yaris (195/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 20,000 spirited miles
I bought this because I was satisfied enough with the previous LM704, hoping that this one would perform better. In fact, it turns out that the grip is inferior compared to the LM704, even the wet grip is a nightmare. Taking turns at 40mph in the rain feels extremely slippery and prone to sliding. Same scene applies on the dry grip, I feel more confident taking corners when using the LM704. The good thing is, it's way quieter and softer than the LM704, nearly matches a Continental CC6 I'm using on another car. Tire wears about the same as the LM704 - just a slight performance decrease after 20.000 miles. Not very recommended for an upgrade from the previous LM704, even if you're searching for a comfort tires. Get a new Continental CC7 instead.

Given 85% while driving a Toyota Premio (195/65 R15) on mostly town for 100 average miles
I recently replace by Pirelli Cinturato P1 Verde 4 tyres with Dunlop LM705 Sports. I should say that the tyre is much comfortable and silent than the P1 set. I am too early to mention about the grip on the road but still the feeling of the steering and drive is excellent. It made me get addicted to drive my car more often. On the highway the drive is very smooth and the rolling will never break your engine. I feel a major difference on the steering wheel as well. The smoothness and comfortability can be felt and I will definitely recommend this tyre for anyone to upgrade if you are using an economical passenger car, I drive a Toyota sedan and I feel great with my decision. The thread seems to have a good depth in the middle and not in the outer. Hope the tyre would last for at least 50,000km. fingers crossed.

Given 57% while driving a Honda City (215/45 R17) on mostly town for 200 easy going miles
Bought these tyres with the recomendation from the sellers for comfort and silentness. Right after changing to them, the road noise is terribly loud, even on fine asphalt road. There's a metallic rolling noise that getting louder when going faster, which is very2 annoying. Going from the oem Turanzas to these tyres are really a big mistake. I complained to the seller, and ask for a replaxement, after a few back and forth debate, they decided to gave me back my money and take back the tyres. Definetly not buying Dunlop again.

Just recently moved from Bridgestone Turanza and i gotta say it feels nicer despite it’s lower price. Sure it’s not the best at wet roads but the comfort it gives pays it off. 10/10 would definitely buy again.

Perform nicely at dry road. Terrible at wet. It is unexpectedly slippery at wet. One good thing is that its thread can last really long. Relatively comfort compared to my F1a5, but not worth risking live for slight improvement in comfort. Vehicle stability control usually kicks in quite a few times during rainy days. Will change it soon.
