I just put the stock Summer Performance Tires--Dunlop Sportmaxx--back on after a winter with Blizzaks, and boy what a change. Really makes driving a lot more fun.
The ride is smoother, WAY quieter, and grippiness especially with lateral motion MUCH better. They perform particularly well on wet roads. I mean, I cannot get these things to slide without some real effort.
I have read some disparaging remarks about the Dunlops. Admittedly I don't have experience with some brands that are pricier, but I have driven Fuzion and Yokohama SPT's and have driven a ton of AWT's--Goodyear, Bridgestone, Goodrich--and none perform as well as the Dunlops.
Just wondering who has replaced them with a set that they like better? And why? I'm open-minded--would consider an upgrade after another 40K miles or so...
