Nice People At Dunlop


After Pedders checked the wheel alignment and upon close inspection of the rear tyres by a Dunlop rep it was evident that the rear tyres hadn't worn only on the inside edges but also the centre tread patterns were down below the wear markers, no evidence of abuse, so Dunlop fitted 2 brand new SP Sport relacements for the princley total sum of $260. I think the tyres are damn good to drive on and at $550 each retail I also think its fair to expect at least 20000 klm out of them. I expected to get all the usual stories and buck passing but I have to say DUNLOP were excellent, and I'm rapt. Thank You Mr DUNLOP.

Re: Nice People At Dunlop

Did they tell you why they were wearing out like that?

Re: Nice People At Dunlop

Smart business Dunlop. Instead of turning a potential customer into someone who felt they were shafted they have now got a customer who will probably go straight back to dunlop when they need new tyres again and again. So what cost the company a few dollars will make them many many dollars in the future. A good win for everyone I would assume.

Re: Nice People At Dunlop

I think a burnout isn't covered for uneven wear

Re: Nice People At Dunlop

I find the sp9000 to be a great tyre in dry and wet, mine have done 24,000km and are nearly close to done but have done a few drag nights

Only thing is they are way to expensive to go back to

Re: Nice People At Dunlop

Havent started looking yet Alex, but apparently are around over $500 per tyre at most outlets here in Vic. Some people interstate have found cheaper but when the tyres are just about completely buggered i'll start looking around

Have you replaced yours yet?
