Dunlop Roadsmart 3 not offered in a GT, correct?
« on: April 11, 2019, 11:55:52 am »
I've never used Roadsmarts but have read good things about the 3's and am planning on replacing my PR4s with them.  So Dunlop doesn't make a GT version? Is this because they're specifically designed for heavier sport tourers?

Don't know the answer, but my current RS's on the C14 work very well and have worn nicely. I like the handling to. Zero complaints.

The RS3 is their GT tire by definition. There's no light load version. I have about 3500 miles on mine and barely see a dent in them. Great tire in all conditions so far. My friend was hydroplaning on his PR4GT on the way home last year from our trip and I had no issue on the RS3. They also stick better in the dry than the PR4GT I had before.
If it ain't fast and won't corner... Crome it.

Thanks guys.  I've always been pretty happy with PR4s, but after reading about the RS3 and seeing their price, I figured I'd give them a shot.

The RS3 is as sticky as the Sportmax Q3. You are going to love them.
