Dunlop Sportmax GPR 300, would you recommend it?

As a sportier alternative to the Michelin PR4 or the Metzeler 01, any recommendations about the Dunlop Sportmax GPR 300?

don't think it is available in the 190/55 rear for K13s. try the Dunlop Q3+ instead. it is the tire dunlop recommends for the K13S.

True, although I try to stick with wet optimized tires to cope with Belgium weather, especially in winter. I wanted to find alternatives to my usual PR4 and 01.

No such thing as a Q3 this side of the pond,we have the Sport Smart which is a different compound(softer) based on the fact that you guys in the US have intersections we have roundabouts and more rain!!! Their qoute not mine

Sport Smart 1 was very special Sport Smart 2(even Dunlop hold their hands up and admit it)was a dud their is a new 3 coming assuming you donít want to try the TT version.
