Hi All, Does anyone else have troubles with the Dunlops in the wet?
I find they seem to be a bit hit and miss with wet grip?
Anyone tried any other tyre brand? How did they go? Am not so interested about getting milage out of them, but rather some comfort knowing they will not light up with a twist of the wrist....
Thanks Rick for your reply, and man you are getting some mileage out of them... I have just over 5,500 km and probably a bit over half worn... will see how they go for the next few thousand Km....
Jase your poor mileage might be due to the circle work.......lol
But it looks good...
I have a great tyer here for you its a 10" micky tompson
Mine has worn unevenly on the side walls and makes a moaning sound when cornering. I have heard of others having the same problem and I have wondered if a tyre worn like mine would have less grip. It is the original dunlop elite E3 fitted to visions. I have 1,2000 klms on it. Be interesting to see if it is suggested to be replaced at its next service next week. I am not a hard rider, more a touring rider.
I've had 2 sets of E3 and just moved to the Metzler ME880 and can't believe the difference in the ME880. Solid grip, confident in the twisties and love these tires. Will never go back to the E3s.
Hi Lads, I agree with Jason and have not longed fitted Dunlop E3 to my 2010 Cross Country - I too find it a bit of a hit and miss in the wet - but then it just could be the various types (grades) of bitumen and patch work on the roads here in Aus. I will keep in mind the Metzler ME 880 next time round - not much choice I believe; I too had trouble getting Pirelli tyres.
