The SP Sport 7000 A/S from Dunlop is used as original equipment on vehicles like the Honda Fit, Infiniti EX35
and several other sedans. With all-season traction and handling, the SP 7000 is built to deliver a comfortable ride
and sporty handling.
An all-season tread compound is blended into an asymmetric tread design for increased traction in year-round
weather and road conditions. Dry pavement performance is enhanced through the tire's independent shoulder tread
blocks that create improved cornering and steering response as well.
Wet handling is enhanced with circumferential and lateral grooves that channel away water from under the tread,
while also increasing grip on wet road surfaces. Sipes in the tread blocks provide biting edges for gripping light
snow and ice.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that use Dunlop's Jointless Band technology to strengthen and
stabilize the tire throughout the speed range. A polyester cord body further enhances ride comfort. This model is
available in a range of 16-19 inch sizes, and comes with either an H or V-speed rating.
Excellent dry traction
Cornering grip is good
Road noise is a bit more pronounced
Treadlife could be better
We had good hopes for this high performance all-season tire, but it just hasn't lived up to its billing.
Although dry surface performance is very good, as is cornering grip and stability, traction on wet and snow covered
roads could be better. Accelerating and braking on wet surfaces is tricky at times, and driving on snow and ice can
The ride on this tire is comfortable for the most part, but excessive road noise can often be a problem.
Finally, we've heard too many drivers mention treadlife being poor. Overall, if you are looking for a Dunlop tire
you might want to consider getting the SP Sport Signature, which offers much higher performance, ride quality and
