Dunlop Grandtrek PT2A review
What is it?
The Dunlop Grandtrek PT2A is a street/sport truck all season tire engineered for sport- and performance-oriented SUV's and trucks.
The PT2A was fitted as the original equipment tire for the Lexus LX 570 SUV.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Data indicates that the Grandtrek PT2A delivers sufficient, but not outstanding grip and handling capabilities in dry and wet conditions.
Users report a rough ride and some structural integrity issues, along with limited treadlife.
How does it compare?
No direct comparative performance data available, but the Grandtrek PT2A definitely compares poorly on value in relation to high quality, far less costly SUV all season alternatives (see below).
Anything else to know?
Limited 20" size due to the intended OE application, and the PT2A is seriously costly at nearly $1,500 per set.
Multiple users report that the Grandtrek PT2A has a propensity to develop stubborn flat spots even after short term parking.
We say shop around. You'll save some notable coin, and get equal to superior performance with alternatives.
If you're looking for a sporty SUV/crossover all season tire, consider the Yokohama Parada Spec-X and Hankook Ventus ST RH06.
Don't need high performance? Options like the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus and Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology might be a fit. Noteworthy treadlife warranty with these alternatives as well; no such luck with the Grandtrek PT2A.
