Summary: After 5000 miles I can say that these tyres are on the performance side, meaning Dunlop SP Sport Fast Response is a great tyre for when driving sportly. I drove them with speed on corners, window open, and they don't make any noise, cars around me were all squealing, the grip on corners is great. Traction is less great, I get wheel hop on wet but you can get that with any tyres considering the unsprung weight.
Summary: This is a follow up review to one I did a few months back now that the tyres are nearing the end of their life and I have had time to live with them. Tread is now down to 2.5mm on all tyres, yet grip is still very good and they are also still nice and quiet. I have had chance to do some spirited driving on them since my last review, and although they grip well they feel a bit soft and lacking in feel.
