Let's get some facts straight. Dunlop Tires are original
equipment for Mercedes Benz, BMW, Porsche, Honda and Toyota.
Dunlop is also the only original equipment tire for Harley
Davidson motorcycles. I'm sure these manufactures know a
little about tire performance and handling.
As far as quality, performance and value go, Consumer reports has
consistently given Dunlop top ratings. The Dunop Radial Rover Light
Truck tire and D60A2 H rated performance tire were both top rated
in their independent tests. The SP Sport 8000 has been recognized
by enthusiast groups for Miata, NSX, Corvette, and is one of a select
group of tires that are factory approved by Porsche.
BTW, the SP Sport 8000 is a Z rated performance tire and like most other
Z rated performance tires, it's not designed for winter use.
There are just too many reputable organizations, enthusiast groups
and manufactures running Dunlops for me to believe some silly,
untrue BBS posting.
