Dunlop Direzza DZ101
« on: May 25, 2006, 06:18:13 PM »
Anyone here running these? I am looking at taking my Toyo T1-S's off since we are going to be making alot of trips back and frth to Montana this summer  and there is no need to ruin the Toyo's on the long highway trips.

It looks like thise Dunlops are afforable and should provide many miles of driving. Atleast more so than the Toyo's will. I am figuring that they will ride softer and be a decent highway tire..

Any insights?

I have them on the allroad.

they are pretty good.  lots of grip.  ride smooth.  they are a little loud, but not too bad.

I'd probably buy another set.

he has my old set, I ran them hard all summer on the outback XT, including 2 track days.  I think they hold up really well, and they are awesome in the rain.

thanks for the info guys. I am looking at those and the toyo 4 as an all purpose, decent performance all season tire.  I just don't want to keep driving back and forth to Montana on my T1-S's.

if they come in your size, the conti extreme contact is also an excellent choice.
