Top Dunlop Direzza DZ03 Review

Given 83% while driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX GSR (235/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
Car - EVO 9 with cca. 400 HP and 500 Nm
Tyre - Dunlop Direzza 03G
Size - 235/45 17
Compound - R

I have had quite a few tyres, including Toyo R888, but these Dunlop Direzza 03G are the best, period. I wouldn't recommend this tire for a daily drive car, very noisy, they sound like airplane taking of and like you need new wheel bearings... Wet traction is surprisingly good, but standing water means aquaplaning, so you must beware of standing water, otherwise just fine. On the dry, what can I say, you have to try them to believe how good they are, tremendous grip and traction due to pure racing compound and cornering stability and steering responsiveness due to to very stiff sidewalls, like I said, the best tyre I have had. I would definitely buy them again...

Given 77% while driving a BMW 328i (225/45 R17) on track for 560 spirited miles
We race our BMW in a novice race series and following a recommendation from a friend (a Subaru Driver) we switched from the Nankang NS2Rs. Immediately on the first test run at Silverstone, we saw a consistent 3-5sec a lap improvement. Over night the car seemed to turn from a tail happy monkey into a brute on rails. It was phenomenal and the confidence that it gave us in planting the car into corners, was something else! And the fun didn't just stop there. We have maintained the same set of tyres through 2 track-days and 3 separate 45minute races and 30 minute qualifying sessions and they're only just starting to give up the ghost.
We have been lucky this season with the weather staying mostly dry, as our one wet track-day session at Brands Hatch proved these tyres to be particularly hairy in the wet, esp' standing water. But that is something that I can forgive as the dry to semi-dry times are memories never forgotten. Will we buy again?........our order has been placed and is expected later this week :-)

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 80% while driving a Evolution (235/45 R17 W) on track for 1,500 spirited miles
Used for Tarmac Rally (Targa Tasmania) and Hillclimbs.
Best of breed - have used Bridgestone RE55S, and prefer Dunlop DZ03G for durability (even R1 compound)
