Dunlop SP Sport Maxx Summer Tire
The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT may not have the instant name recognition that the Michelin Pilot Sport series does, but don't let that color your impressions. This tire comes as factory equipment on high-performance cars like the Audi S4, and is especially well-suited for the type of spirited driving you expect for a tire in this category.
While initial turn-in isn’t as crisp as Michelin's offerings (to be fair, very few are), the SP Sport Maxx GT provides plenty of grip in both dry and wet conditions. This tire also excels at everyday use, with a relatively smooth ride that filters out bumps and keeps tread noise to a minimum. Prices are about average for the category, so expect to shell out a fair bit if you need replacement tires.
