Dunlop SP9000 new

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...

Must be that jumbly-wumbly thing happening again.

Yea if you like to buy new tires every 12k! They are manf. by Bridgestone/Firestone you dumbass. I don't see anyone comparing Coopers to Pole Positions.
