    After the first 5,000 kilometers on the poor quality greek roads, I think I can get a first opinion.
    The tires are excellent, as Dunlop's name guarantees.
    Their wet grip is perfect and the same applies to dry.
    Exceptional handling even in conditions of braking while driving in a turn.
    I do not have a complete opinion on their wear, but after 5,000 kilometers they are like new.
    I recommend them for sure.

    After swapping out the nasty budget tyres on my Yaris the immediate drop in road nose and surefootedness in the wet was amazing.
    Turn-in is markedly better, steering sharper.
    Very, good, let's see how well they wear.

    Tyres were installed on 01/2018, made in Thailand. I park my car in the basement, so no direct sunlight. For the first two years I accumulated around 20k km and swapped front/back. After that covid hit and now 07/2023 the tyres have accumulated 45k. These tyres excel at handling and road feedback, feel very sharp up to now. The unique advantage that have compared to other premium brands I drove, is that wear comes gradually and you never feel that the rubber becomes stiff throughout the years. Also during summer, car is driven in gravel roads with some nasty rocks and these tyres have really good walls. Perfect in breaking on dry conditions, almost perfect in wet (the most predictable tyres that I have driven). As a disadvantage I would say the road noise is high now but, it is expected after so many Km and rough usage from time to time.

    Its the same tyre with Goodyear Compact. Excellent in dry roads, very good in the wet. Brake is very good in dry and wet. Its a llttle noisy than Goodyear but its ok. Comfort very good, aquaplaning very.good.

    Given 90% while driving a Toyota Yaris (175/65 R15 T) on mostly motorways for 5,000 spirited miles
    Overall this tyre exceeds your expectations from a tyre in this category in terms of grip and handling.

    In dry conditions there is a lot of grip even close to the limit during turns. The feeling you get in the steering is accurate and direct and you feel that the tyre is a lot wider than it really is. I didn't expect that from a 175/65/15 tyre.

    In wet conditions you still feel confident even in heavy rainfall. aquaplaning is excellent and the grip is good enough. Its not exceptional like the dry grip but it is more than good for a tyre in this category.

    In terms of comfort it is soft and comfy. rarely you feel that a bump was harsh. Road noise on the other hand is above average. Its not very quiet tyre.

    Overall highly recommended

    Mostly good to say though didn't last nearly as long as I expected - under a year (although to be fair, I didn't realise I had done 19000 miles in that time!)
    Bit of road noise but not overly bad, good grip until the grip fell off a cliff around 18000 miles

    Car Nissan Micra k13 DIG-s, at 22000 miles, still had tread left, Swapped Bridgestone 250 for these - It's early days The Dunlops are much more comfortable, smoother and quieter than the Bridgestones perhaps generally softer - make the car feel much better, too early to say if they're better grip or wear wise (sorry). I suspect they will not last as long as the B'stones but so far feel much better and unless the wear rate is appalling I will not be using the B'stanes again.

    This tyre is OK when dry; but in my opinion, they are appalling when the roads are wet. Appear to wear our relatively quickly. Therefore I will never be tempted to buy this tyre again.

    Had these for about 15,000 miles now and gotta say they've been really good on my Yaris; I'd say they're my new favorite tyre, stealing the crown from the Continental PC2E!

    The straight and lateral grip in both wet and dry is excellent, giving confidence in the corners even if you've taken it a bit quicker than you should. Even when I have overcooked it, the natural understeeryness of the Yaris works well with this tyre to give a progressive understeer feeling so I can correct for it nice and early, rather than just having the tyre suddenly let go and throw me into a hedge or ditch.
    It's been a breath of fresh air after the Cooper CS2's I had on previously, which had extremely poor lateral grip and seemed to understeer round every corner at any speed. (They were surprisingly hard wearing tho', those CS2s)

    The price was good for a premium tyre too; Considerably cheaper than the newer Continentals I was also considering at the time!

    I was hoping they'd hit 20,000 miles at least, but given I wasn't treating them very gently 15,000 is still pretty good; The Conti PC2E's are still my longest lasting tyres, but they aren't as grippy as these.

    These perform like the Conti PC5's I'd tried (The tyres I had before the CS2s!), but lasted over twice as long!

    There is only one major downside with these tyres - They are REALLY noisy; In a car with good sound-proofing you're probably okay, but a Yaris has basically no sound-proofing and despite having the lowest noise rating of any tyre I've used so far, they have been by far the noisiest!

    I have fitted all four new tyres fromt BlackCircles.
    I have done about 700 miles so far, the impression isn't good at all.
    The feeling of car floating on the road, with sudden little drags left or right. I went to the garage, done whole suspension + tracking, still the same.
    I am so tensed when driving, nothing to compare with my old ContiContacts 3. These are the worst tyres ever over my 18 years drivers experience! Did not expect this from Dunlop. Will newer ever buy Dunlops again.

    First impressions after 1000+ kms. Tyres manufactured in Thailand with UK E11 type approval. Pleasantly quiet tyres, notably less noisy than Conti EcoContact3 that were on the car before. Rolling resistance is notably lower than the Contis, had to get used to that when lifting off! Dunlops are softer, more comfortable too. Car is more neutral, corners more easily, has far less understeer compared to the Contis. Car feels nimbler with these Dunlops. However, on a hot day, at speed on hot tarmac, the car seemed to be slightly more restless than on Contis. I guess that Goodyear EfficientGrip Compact tyres, which have almost the same tread with fewer (narrow) grooves, and a similar, if not identical, rubber compound, may be slightly better suited for (hot) and fast motorway driving, but may be not as nimble as the Dunlops around town. Would buy the Dunlops again, even if they wear quicker than Contis.

    Great tyres, but did not last quite as long as I'd have hoped for. I only have a small car, but do drive a bit aggressively IMO. Had all four tyres changed 2 years ago and the fronts are now nearly on their way out. I would highly recommend them, but maybe for the more conserved driver...
