Dunlop Direzza ZII Review

Bottom line

Tire experts and pro drivers love the performance of the Dunlop Direzza ZII, saying its outstanding accelerating and braking performance are ideal for the track. The Dunlop maintains stability when cornering, with handling that experts describe as refined and responsive. Because the Direzza ZII emphasizes grip over comfort, scores for road noise and smoothness are lower than all-season tires, and estimated life span is shorter. Dunlop doesn't include a tread warranty. However, it's relatively low price makes this a good choice as a budget tire as well.
