I got these at the recent Dunlop
promo. Paid around $170 per pc at CJ for 235/40 R18.
My immediate prev tyres
were Pirelli PZ4 and Bridgestone
RE003, both i used for around 30k km. These 3 tyres
are similar in noise and comfort, all very good. Car is a Subaru 2.5T.
Between these 3, the best lux sports tyre
ime is the Pirelli. Straight line stability at 230 and braking were confidence inspiring. PZ4 is quieter and ride quality was very good from new to end. Low speed grip is very good too, example going down basement cp on a rainy day.
has *much* better steering turn in but feels less locked in when straight (160 onwards). Very fun to toss around lol. It squeals easily even with my car power and has the most lively rear end compared to the rest. This Could be viewed as a good feedback characteristic for some Drivers, whereas PZ4 is more sudden when losing it. RE003 has the hardest sidewall among these 3, but grip and braking imo are just behind them. Steering and feedback during cornering is not bad tho.
