    Be careful in a rain on them -) You will be surprised - lol!!!

    People - try Dunlop Sport Fast Response - it's not that expensive, but pretty good tyres for the buck! And they're awesome in rain/snow and in fact has won an Award in Dry Braking and Aquaplinning resistance as well as Rolling Resistance (so you will save some cash on petrol with them).

    Well last night i had a very good opportunity to test the S-drives and i am very much impressed with their performance.
    The thing is that i was scared a bit to push the car in the bends or roundabouts as i found the rubber to be soft to my taste.

    I gunned the car in the bends and roundabouts to see the limit and 'glue' effect of the tyres.
    Inspite of being soft and comfortable to drive around,these tyres are nothing to be scared about when attempting aggressive driving.

    There is absolutely no squealing or ugly skidding in the bends,in fact they give good confidence.

    I would highly recommend these tyres as an alternative to the higher end performance tyres.

    So far i have been able to test them in dry conditions,wet conditions are still yet to come.

    Surprised with my Dunlops - they're worn about 2-3mm left and really good grip in wet - even when heavy rain. SO much better than Brand new Toyo Proxes in wet.... and better in dry!
