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
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
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 be challenging.
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 treadlife.
Dunlop provides a limited tread warranty on the Sport 7000.
Tire uniformity is guaranteed for one-year or the first 2/32 inch of wear. Materials and workmanship are warranted
for 6-years and include free replacement during the first year or first 2/32 inch of wear. A prorated amount is
given for the remaining time period or down to the final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
