Re: Dunlop's Motorsport Tyres

I suppose its different in my class af racing, a full set can be bought for about £120 (wets or slick) and the only people that make tyres for us are dunlop, bridgestone (both good) Maxxis (not great) and Vega (never seen anyone use them in my class, not even sure they make the right sizes)

Re: Dunlop's Motorsport Tyres

Hi there

Apologies for the late reply, I was struck down with a severe case of man flu! I'm afraid we can't give away any freebies although we'd love to have you all driving round on a set of Dunlops!

In terms of price you do get what you pay for...naturally we would recommend Dunlop over any other brands though!

If you drive in a way that means you get through tyres quickly, why not give a set of Dunlops a go this time? We might be able to find you something from the Dunlop prize cupboard (maybe a cap or pen) if you're able to write an honest review after you've tried them....

Feedback from the road is important to the driver and feedback from the customers is important to Dunlop.

Cheers, Dunlop Man
