SP 9000 Tyre Wear

Have run a quick search for anything on this subject but can't find anything directly addressing this question.

So, what km's are you guys getting. And what driving do you do.

I got about 7500km's out of my rear tyres, fronts are OK. Drive fairly hard especially cornering, don't do burnouts etc; hardest I have driven my car was on track day.

Personally I thought the SP3000 on my T were a better tyre than these 9000's

Re: SP 9000 Tyre Wear

You should have got more than 7500 out of them!! Ive had a few sets of these tyres now and i have found you have to monitor pressures and rotate every 5000ks to extend life.

Re: SP 9000 Tyre Wear

I got 25000 out of 9000s on my T3 I thought that wasn't to bad, I put some Yokie AVS V102s on it this time, well its a diffrent car ! done 11000ks on them so far and there wearing very well, It looks like at this stage they will give a few more Ks than the Dunlops..

Bloody hell!!


Thats the worst tyre life i have heard of from the Dunlop 9000's, some guys are using them on the strip and get more than that.
I think Hypnodoc spoke to someone at Dunlop and they came to the party on replacements at a good price

Re: SP 9000 Tyre Wear

Trust me John, NO.

Sure did a couple of small burnouts on track day, who does'nt, but normal driving no way, the occasional chirp from the lights that's all.

I expected about 20 - 25 k out of them and would have been happy with that. So if Dunlop don't come to the party there is no way I will be putting them back on my car at $550 a tread. It will be Toyo Trampio's 255/35/18's @ $280 each, fitted and balanced.
