Great Tyre, was tough to decide wheather or not to move from directional to these but I am certainly converted now. Prob won't move from these for a long time. Better than Federal, Nangkahn, Sunny's, budget range tyres. Matador are made by continental.

Writing about the Dunlop Sport BluResponse given 90% (205-50-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 4000 spirited miles
I always take my time when deciding tyres. Having just come from a rubber eating Renault sport megane. I wanted something grippy but ultimately comfortable also.

Having had the bluresponse on the car for just over 4000 miles, needless to say I'm very impressed. Obviously the car isn't designed to be thrown around into bends like my previous car, but it'll still let you and the tyres do seem to have almost more grip than I have talent.

Since having them fitted, the fronts have worn 2mm and the rears just a little over a mm (heavy front end).

I can honestly say, I've never driven a tyre so quiet and comfortable, to also be that good with grip. Wet grip is also good but I don't drive like a tit when it's raining.

When they wear down, no questions, I'll replace with the same.
