United Kingdom 2014 Freelander 2 TD4 XS Auto Firenze Red
Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 SUV

Just fitted these 17" as I wanted a quiet running car, due to Pam's poor hearing.
I have to say that after running them in for about 50 miles they have exceeded our expectations.
I have previously tried, Avon Z7, these Dunlop are a lot better for supressing road noise.
These are the 1st Dunlop tyres I've bought since the late 60s early 70s.

Just noticed when I was checking the pressures, "Made in Germany", didn't think we made tyres in Europe anymore.
