Supertouring Dunlop tyres

Hello,

Does anyone have any information on the wear and grip charactistics for the old ST Dunlop tyres that Audi (and I think Vauxhall - 1994?) ran whilst in the BTCC?

Even if its anacdotal information it would be helpful, were they more grippy, less grippy? My own memory has them as lasting longer than the Michelin Pilots, but were not quite as grippy overall?

Any help would be great.

I just want to say that the best thing about the Vauxhalls of the 1994 season was the fact that the Dunlop tyres had a great more life than the other type of tyres in the series and the rest struggled with the races that were warmer

Yep, that's what I remember too, however memories can be cloudy. So you think the Dunlops were a little more durable?

I don't know if it was always the best durability in every season but the 1994 season it was the best durability of the series
