Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D review
What is it?
The Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D is a snow/winter tire designed for use on performance-oriented coupes, sedans, and sports cars.
Strengths and weaknesses?
Excellent snow and ice traction, and very good in wet road conditions as well. Ride quality, road noise, and treadlife are also strong points.
Dry condition performance is perhaps not quite as ideal as some of alternative performance winter/snow tires such as the Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4, but far from deficient or inadequate.
How does the SP Winter Sport 4D compare?
Nearly indistinguishable across evaluative metrics from the popular Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D. Only the somewhat compromised dry condition performance hold the Dunlop performance winter/snow options from being atop the rankings.
Anything else to know?
Limited sizes remain, and can be purchased at a discount. Don't let the mid-pack subjective ranking mislead you, the SP Winter Sport 4D and associated performance winter/snow options from Dunlop are seriously capable and competent tires that can get you through the very worst of winter.
Install in sets of four only, or you'll be dealing with a potentially hazardous handling imbalance.
