Default Dunlop formula D01

Hi guys,

After did a few weeks model and price research. Finally I was decided to buy the Dunlop formula D01 as my 4 new tyres, the size is 205/50/16. At first I plan to buy Bridgestone or Toyo tyres, but unfortunately I have to cancel the idea due to budget constraint.

Anyhow, because of just changed the tyre by today, I have no chance to really test the performance of tyre. Anyone of you are using this tyre? Maybe can share some point of views or comment here.

Be careful in the rain and tight turns even on roundabouts

Hi azbro,
You mean the performance of tyre is not so good in wet condition?

Hi angrysnail,
270 per pc, including balancing and aluminum valve

they are cheap thats a fact... but basically for me.. they are rubbish sitting next to sime astar tyres. they easily crack their sidewalls and get out of shape.. meaning they can't be balanced at high speed.. (eg. above 130km/h) well... thats my experience la... but if your luck is good.. u may not face the problem until your tyre totally botak. i sold my D-01 tyres at half price after using it for 3 months... thats how i hate them

Additional Info: I drive hard... hahaha.. so these tyres not for crazy dudes like myself... only suitable for aunties going to market buy vege ones...
