Dunlop Q4

Decided on trying the Dunlop Q4's after a rather disappointing experience with the Dunlop Q3's a few summers ago.

The Q4's really fit the bike and my style of riding. Probably the best tire I have put on the bike since the OEM Pirelli were mounted.

The rear diameter is quite tall, which will give a ton of lean angle. They seem very compliant and at 32 PSI in the rear and 31 PSI up front, I think they were a good purchase, even though they cost about 15% more than the Q3's.

Don't think they will wear as long as the Michelin RS's but seems to be a great tire so far.
Thanks from 1299rFE and Viking90

Those are not replacement for Q3/Q3+ but more of competitor to supercorsa's I am not surprise that you like them

Yea, I've been very happy with their cost and characteristics. They really are a very strong contender to the Supercorsas. They also seem to be a bit lighter overall as well.

For the price I can get them at, I will most likely use these tires at all times unless they hike up next year to the same cost of the SC's. I still put my bike on the street, so a slick is not going to be my go to tire, I am also not that high of a caliber rider to need a slick. I am also not about to purchase a second set of wheels either.

31 PSI is for road or track use? i used on track 23 psi rear and 29 psi front but with the alpha13SP.

I think the Q4’s are excellent tires. They feel great on both road and track and actually lasted longer than the Supercorsa’s.
