    Default Dunlop SP Sport MAXX

    Dunlop SP Sport MAXX in 225/45/17 94Y XL's. Anyone tried these or know anyone who has? I have been thinking of changing my tyres as they are basically worn out now. I know everyone says the Eagle F1's are good but I never get more than 9k out of a set of fronts so I will be staying away from these as I think they will be a little soft for me - prepares to be shot down in flames.

    The dunlops were £92 each fitted, Goodyears £97 fitted. Good prices??
    Also just found Michelin Primacy HP at £99ish, aparently their latest design?

    Any other ideas? I was told the Ultracs are very difficult to get hold of in my area??
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    There is a little of that, but not that much tbh. The last two sets of cheap tyres have lasted 12k between them

    Evo magazine gave them a miserable review.

    Woudln't bother with the Ultracs, not at all impressed by them on the Astra (215-45/17)

    Thanks ZS. I was thinking of the Michelin Primacy HP but have just read they are quite noisy. I want a quieter tyre this time as mine are noisy as hell! Maybe the F1's or Khumo's as I have had them before and found them to be a really good tyre

    I've had Dunlop SP Sport MAXX "225/45ZR17 94Y Extra Load" tyres on my Veccy for about a year and I'm happy with them.
