Does anyone have any experience with the D65?
Dunlop has a 6 year mileage warranty. It is T
rated and M&S rated. MEP tread compound. Claim it to be there top all around all season, two tires in one.

I had a set on a Ford Taurus. I found them to be just a regular all season tire, nothing special at all. Not as good as the Bridgestone RE 900 or the Michelin X ones that I also used on this car. They did have a very smooth ride but when pushed they turned to mush. Hopes this helps.

To add to the comments from Texas... I too have had the D65 & X1 on a Taurus. RE900 on a 98 Park Ave.
D65T is another basic all season tire in the premium catagory. X1 the best still. Strong consideration should be given to the D65T based on cost in comparison to both tires mentioned. It is a good "bang for your buck" Capable of mileage claim, safe, comfortable riding tire in all conditions. As far as turning to mush.... most T rated touring tires, primium or not, have their limits. Depending on what level of "pushing it" you take it to you will quickly learn the difference between a good H or higher rated tire and the S/T touring catagory. In comarison to the RE900 there is nothing I have found to justify the cost difference versus the D65T, unlike the X1 where you will notice a marked ride comfort level differnce.
Just another perspective.
