I had a set of for 215 55 YR16 Dunlop SP01's (made in Germany) for my Audi Quattro in December 2010. They were absolutely great and performed much better in both the wet and the dry (and snow) than the Michellin Primacys that I had before. So why change I thought when I came to change the front pair after 32,000 miles? So I didn't, but the new ones (also made in Germany) have turned out to be extremely noisy - I suspect Dunlop have changed the compound. The rear ones are still going strong and I expect to get well over 35,000 out of them, but what do I buy when the time comes to replace them?
