Hi

Just had Dunlop SP Sport 01's fitted on the rear of my SLK R170 yesterday at Kwik Fit. 225/45 17. Cost £108@ fitted

They're described as being a 'quiet' tyre for a smooth ride and are fitted to some Mercedes cars for low cabin noise.

Must say I'm very impressed with them, so much so I will be replacing the fronts (Nexens) even though they have a good few thousand miles left on them.

Also had the 4 wheel laser tracking done.

The Dunlops are indeed very quiet and less harsh over bumps :D

I'm running 19" alloys off a C class coupe.

Highly recommend these tyres though don't know what sort of mileage I can expect, not a great deal I imagine with them being 'sport' tyres. :shock:

I have them on my CL, yes very quiet, I am now at 10k miles with loads left and this is a big heavy fast car ;)

Thanks Malcolm, that's good news not having to fork out again for a while. My annual mileage is about 6 or 7k and I drive quite lazily for a sport (ish) car :D

Used to have a C63...
For what it's worth, had them on my Octavia Scout (petrol turbo, Haldex 4WD), and they were very good.

Sold it with 17,500 miles on them and still had 4-5mm on fronts, and more on rear.

I had them on the rear of my S500.

Good tyres, lasted about 10k but got a bit twitchy when sub 4mm.
