My experience with the tyres are very much in keeping with the reviews I read when I was researching which tyres to buy. Very happy with price and ride quality.

Nothing really - perhaps if anything the ride could be quieter but this is probably the poor road surfaces.

I've had toyo t1r, Goodyear assy 3, and bridgestone r080 and these Dunlop sport maxx work better with my set up better than all of them. Wet and dry they inspire confidence and if I'm very naughty I can easily go lots faster round corners than is legal without ever feeling I'm likely to cross onto the wrong side road. They brake with control and power. My wear figure is because I've not done more than 10000 miles yet to check wear rates but they seem good so far.

That I didn't try them earlier.

Plenty of grip in wet and dry conditions. I previously had Avon ZV7s on my fronts which I found were prone to a touch of understeer, especially in the wet. These Dunlops are much better; loads of grips now and less road noise.

These are brilliant tyres for the Jaguar X350 and has transformed the car. Pirelli tyres that were originally on the car had loads of tread left but gave a terrible tooth jarring and noisy ride, I had to change them to the Dunlop's, what a difference!!

Saved around £100 by going for these over the michelin PS4 that were fitted already. Bit softer than the michelins, more refined but not quite as good for grip. Good enough though.

Not as much outright grip, however performance is still very decent.

Specification on the website is accurate enough. Combination of qualities is what I was looking for.

Have put a few miles on these tyres now and wear is showing on the fronts. They'll need to be rotated soon to even up the wear. I doubt they will last 10k miles.
