My last set of Dunlop Gold Seals (on a new “Spridget”) lasted some 4,500 miles almost entirely on tar roads and with regular rotation.
I bought four “X”s on which I have done as yet only about 4,000 miles but without rotation and it is already quite evident that they will do many more miles than the five Dunlops.
Dunlops may submit that the tyres fitted to the “Spridgets” as Original equipment are unsuitable but the fact is that people who have suffered (and paid) as I have, will not fit Dunlops again when they can buy tyres with a better reputation.
May I respectfully suggest therefore that Dunlops use their influence to prevent the car manufacturers fitting unsuitable tyres, particularly to sports cars, and thereby getting Dunlops a thoroughly bad name as can clearly be seen from the correspondence columns of your excellent journal.
