Dunlop is delighted to have secured the top spot in the Ultimate Tyre Test 2014 carried out by Auto Express.
The magazine based the test on nine criteria: wet handling, cornering a braking; dry handling and braking; straight and curved aquaplaning; rolling resistance; cabin noise and price.
And after hundreds of laps and emergency stops, the popular Dunlop Sport BluResponse emerged as its overall winner, with Auto Express concluding: “Winning performance in all conditions make this brilliant new tyre our 16-inch champion”.
According to the motoring magazine: “The BluResponse also starred in the deeper water with a win in the straight aquaplaning test and second on the curve – a remarkable feat. It felt good, too, diving for the apex accurately and only washing wide progressively.
But wet road prowess alone rarely wins a test, and that was the case for this champion. It finished joint third around our dry handling track and won the dry braking test. Key to its dry track success was its ability to take plenty of throttle through the long turns. It didn’t feel the most alert, but it hung on well.
Six top three places in nine tests were more than enough for a debut victory.”
etyres supply and fit a wide range of Dunlop tyres and its customers can currently benefit from lower prices with £25 off four tyres or £10 off two or three tyres.
