Dunlop SP9000

Just wanna give props to these W rated summer tires...

They are excellent in the rain and snow. I have not gotten myself stuck yet (it's fun playing in the snow again... wow, I've missed that!), and to top that off, I actually pulled an Integra out of a ditch with snow pack under my tires.

Not too shabby compared to the Kumho 712s and Cooper ZX2s that I would get repeatedly stuck in.

So yeah... I can't comment a whole lot about dry weather traction, but these excel in wet/snowy weather. Almost as good as my old Contour with cheap all season tires.

Here's a pic of them compared to the Coopers I had removed (due to a bubble issue):

Last set of Coopers I got for the BMW didn't seem up to my expectations of Cooper tires. They don't seem to make them like they used to...

Generals suck...continentals suck...oh same factory

bridgestones dont suck...zri's dont suck... same factory

I'm not sure how fuzions got linked to generals

the damn this isnt a super tire it fits the bill just fine for a sub 100 performance tire. it kicks the [censored] out of its kumho and hanook competitors. if I'm thinking of the right falken they grip awesome and last what 15k?? hows the wet traction?

Wet traction is fine, Who cares how long a Tire last. Get a better job


And the General Fuzion generaliztion was just a comment not meaning they are made by general.

Do they wear out as fast as those Coopers in the pic? They were only 2 months old and maybe 5,000 miles! Alignment was as fresh as the tires...

Reason I got the Coopers was b/c it was all that was in stock for my tire size up in Great Falls, Montana.

I got back from Kuwait and had less than 2 weeks to be in and out processed from that base (I never went back to work).

Since I was going on leave, I needed to drive home (Iowa), and then drive to a port to get it shipped off (Washington)... and my car had the bald Kumhos on it, not to mention a bent rear control arm. So I had the shop put Brad's tubular rear control arms on with a set of tires and alignment.
