    I had Dunlop Sport 01s on my X358R for 6 years, and I was very pleased with them. Interesting to read that post concerning speed bumps. I hate the things, and try to avoid them if poss, else I slow down to 20 mph max for them.

    I have used the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT on my x351 , they are 19" wheels. I had them from new on my 2011 x351 and ran them to 107000 miles until the car was written off by a drunk driver, I now have them on my 2015 x351, they have covered maybe 15000 miles , personally I have seen no issues on this size at all.
    On my Super V8 which is on 20" Sepangs I have always used Falken tyres, again I have been perfectly happy with them, having covered about 80000 miles since I bought the car with about 113000 miles on the clock

Has anyone any experience or these or any other tyres that they might recommend?

    Hi Pete,

    I changed from Pirellis to Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5s on my 19" rims a while back and much prefer the ride, handling, lower road noise and economy of the Goodyears. As 255/40/19s they were £118 each delivered from Camskills and get very good ratings on tyrereviews.co.uk with 9/10 average rating.
