I love these tires! I've only been on the highway once with them and was able to do some cornering with ease. Good grip!

I have been using matching sets of Dunlop Z rated tires on my 1991 ZX-11 Ninja since the D201's came out in 1992. After using the D201, 202, 204, 205, 206, 207, and then the Q3 Sportmax...I have to say that they were all great tires. I ride in some of the worst weather around (Idaho), and I ride in snow/ice/rain/wind all year around. These tires work great!
Way better than Diablo Rosso and better than the Q2"s that I've ran many times. Great ride if you like to ride the rails
My buell came with dunlops, wich were fairly worn but I got used to the profile. I tried other brands with different profiles but they felt uncomfortable. I went with the Q2's next and they were a vast improvement.
But now the Q3's are my favorite choice. I push these hard on the track in the intermediate group without the need for warmers and I don't even bother balancing them.
Great in wet weather too. But know these are not high mileage tires nor are they strictly racing tires. But they are a great tire for the money.
I bought a set of Dunlop Sportmax tires for my BMW RT. Here I am, 3,000 miles later buying a new front because of excessive road noise caused by cupping of the tread. Rear tire is wearing flat in the center of the tread already too. I expect to replace it this summer too. But these tires if you like changing them every 6 months or they're a safe bet if you don't ride at all. On the plus side, they do hold air.
Their sticky right out the box. Really do give you more confidence coming to a turn and much more feel of the road over other tires.
REALLY LIKED THE Q2 THESE ARE EVEN BETTER ! 3RD SET OF Q3
I drive a 2014 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R. I was able to squeeze 7,000 miles out of the tires, though they were way over due and very unsafe.
These new Dunlop tires ride like a dream. I haven't really pushed them to their limit yet, but so far they handle very well. After riding on a bad set of stock tires it has altered my riding perception. I am starting to trust these new tires and put them through some moves. It feels great to weave in and out of traffic jams with confidence. The new tires have really elevated my driving experience.
A really important factor that I forgot to mention is that these tires are made in AMERICA. As an American I feel it is my duty to buy as many American products that I can afford. Americans should support Americans......it's the American way!!
Great service and fast shipping! Thank you!
Best purchase of tires i made. Out the box sticky am inlove withe these tires
I have ridden on Dunlops all my life. These are by far THE best yet.
The heat up quickly, I feel no sidewall flexing when I pitch it into a corner. I do not drive this bike in the rain so I can not help with a wet tire review, but dry conditions, this tire is FANTASTIC
These are some of the best all around tires. For doing track days, riding wheelies or just an evening cruise. I'd suggest to anyone the Dunlop Q3.
Have these on ktm 625 supermoto , both fz09s and my buddy's sv 1000, no question we'll be replacing with the same. balance well, very good traction even before reaching operating temp,
heat cycle well without getting hard after 30 rides or so like others,
But we also have to replace after about 1500 miles, so ask yourself what you want,,,, hard and slippery (aka chicken strips)..... or soft and sticky with a limited life expectancy
some things in life are worth the money.... if your reading this your looking at one
Got these tires in two days from Motosport, had the m installed at a local shop. Bike corners harder, sticks to the road, and feels stable on all surfaces. Even in the rain the Q3s grip. Love these Tires, will buy again.
Not much else to say if you want a better street tire you have the supercorsa but you pay more and get less mileage. These actually do alright in the rain too, I've only taken it easy in the wet though..
Best Deal online on this Dunlop Q3 set!
First set of Dunlop's on my 2009 Ducati 848 (after years on Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa's).
Very solid performance and grip in the corners, heard they last a bit longer than the Pirelli's too.
In the rating section I said I WOULDNT recommend these to a friend, what I meant was I would recommend something over them, but explain why. Stability in cornering is amazing, seems like the CF infused sidewalls helps, HOWEVER....I do a lot of highway driving, and our highways around here have 30 meter concrete slabs for the base, and they shift at the joints causing spawls in the road...so in a car on a road that's say 3+years old you'll hear and feel a "bu-bump, bu-bump" every few seconds. In a car its not so bad...but on a bike, its annoying to say the least, and I felt like the stiffness of the Q3s amplified the feedback, making it more annoying...and actually getting me POed on the larger bumps. Previous tires were Bridgestone S20, which I loved, traction was awesome, especially in the wet... I got the Q3s all excited for them because of the stability and CF....if you def feel you need the stability/conformity advantage, I WOULD recommend you try these Q3's. But with my highway driving and the condition of the highways on my main commute to and from work, I'll probably go with the new S20 pros. Either tire lasts me about a year-year and a half so, it will work out perfect as I'm actually gonna be one of the people rebuilding the largest stretch of highway that's messed up on my work commute this summer, and we redid two other problem section last year...so next summer I could probably switch back to Q3s.lol Although for me, the we advantage is a plus so...do what ya like, that's just my experience
Bought these for my Ducati 796 as these are very good tires for this bike. Delivery time was easy and Motorsport was the only company advertising Dunlops rebate program. They even sent a reminder not to forget to send it in.
Great customer service
I am very happy with the Q3's. I previously rode on Q2's and am very happy with the ride on the Q3's! Rode over 300 miles this past weekend 'to break em in'.
Great for trackdays and street
have ridden sportmax at the track for years but i prefer these on the road and for limited track days, not as many choices on heat ranges as track tires, but these are not as picky about being up to temp before they hold power
