Mostly Town for 37,000 Average miles

Mercedes Benz ML

The Dunlops were the best tyre I've used so far, lasting 60,000 km/5 yrs and with enough tread to go another 1-2 years or more. Amazing durability. Would definitely have bought again but they are no longer made in the correct size, but if you can find some old stock, you will not regret snapping them up.

Couldn't say the same for the Pirelli Scorpion Zeros I had before them, that were worn out after 5 years/60,000 km. The Continental SportContacts that it rolled out of the factory on were gone after 2.5 years (40,000 km) - terrible value.

A Combination of Roads for 2,000 Easy Going miles

Mercedes Benz ML

I've just spent the last 10 days driving across Europe and back and through the Krokonose mountain range in CZ Republic, through horrendous rain conditions, and heavy sleet, snow and ice and had no trouble at all. Maybe its the 4x4 car that the tyres are fitted to but the car felt totally safe at all times. This is not the first year I've been driving across Europe in the winter but with SP 5000's I've never felt the need to upgrade to a dedicated winter tyre and have only used low gear once and that was on sheet ice going down hill. Tremendous tyres in all weather.
