Default Dunlop SP 9000 Suck!

I got a set of brand new Dunlop SP 9000 for only $50 ( I got them from my work they were OE tires from our Saturn Ion Redline with only 20 yes 20 miles on them) I guess I cant complain about the hook up but god dam does this tire suck! Its louder than the RE070, it losses tracion like hot bhutter on a skillet. Initial bite is great but as soon as they break there broke! Unlike the Bridgestones that slowly loose traction these loose it all! I guess I was used to the grip of the RE070's. I plan on switching back to the Bridgstones in the mean time and selling these. Do yourself a favor and dont bother with these.

I wasn't going to bother with them... but for $50 I would have thought about it. They'd be good enough street tires for as long as they lasted.

This needs to be added as a review in that area, for all time! Dunlops, FTL.

Wow that's crazy. I used those tires on my 98 C70 for the last 4 years and I absolutely swear by them. Granted that car is nowhere near the car the STI is so maybe they are just better on some cars.
