Post New Dunlop SP Sport FM901

There is a new Dunlop tire available in Canada & Australia.

I can't seem to find any detailed specifications on this tire. It looks like it is in the price range of the Kumho Escta Supra 712.

I'm looking for the best compromise performance/price for my new 18" speedlines - the car will not be tracked.

Any feedback?

I just put them on my Audi. They grip well, are super quiet and smooth, but the steering response and traction limits are not up to the level of tires like the S-02 or MXX. Makes perfect sense, since the sidewalls are much softer than these tires. Also, they are great in the rain. But, I don't think I would use them on my Porsche.
