Dunlop Qualifier Performance Radial Tires

  • The Qualifier offers true racetrack-level grip and performance for the street
  • Rear-tire compound blends three race-developed polymers to maximize grip and warm up quickly in the wet or the dry
  • Race-derived front-tire profile promotes quicker turn-in and lighter steering while also contributing to a larger footprint at maximum lean angles
  • Advanced belt design and Jointless Band (JLB) rear-tire construction reduce unsprung weight for quicker acceleration and enhanced steering characteristics
  • Successor to the D208ZR sport radial

Great tire
I dont know of a better tire for my 04 R1, however it would be nice if it would last longer on straight roads. The center wears out way before the edges

A decent tire but for a few bucks more you can have better
I like Dunlop tires I think they have a great racing history and and this is not a bad tire it's the first set of tires that I ever owned I thought they got good traction. They also handled very well in the rain The one problem that I had with this tire and will stop me from buying it again is that the Center of the tire wore way too quickly. I do a lot of commuting on the highway. I got around 3k before tread started showing

Look for Something Else
I would never have bought these for myself in the first place but they came stock on my '14 R1, and since I've got some experience on plenty of other tires first and now some time with these I feel qualified to talk about them.<br><br>PROS:<br>- came with the bike, which is basically like free tires<br>- they're Dunlops, which is a brand I like<br>- the tread pattern looks cool<br>- never lost any pressure in the 3 months i used them<br><br>CONS:<br>- rear completely worn after 1500 miles<br>- slick like plastic until warm, in fact, don't even ride if the air/road temp is under 60<br>- slide around a lot, easily and often<br>- did I mention rapid wear?<br>- costs as much as tires which outclass them in every way<br><br>If it didn't come with the motorcycle, I would have never used this tire. The Q2/Q3 lasts at least as long (I've gone 6k on Q2s) for the same amount of money, and stick better, turn better, and are like half the weight. These tires couldn't stick if they were molten, cost too much, wear too fast, and aren't really good for anything except cheapo OEM tires. If you're after a street-legal track tire, go straight to the Q3; but if you want a sport tire and might not see much track, forget Dunlop has this and check out Pirelli Diablo Rossos or Bridgestone S20s instead.

Good road tire
These came stock on my Dorso 750, and the ride quality overall in the dry was spectacular. Never had them in the rain, and only for 1500 miles before I found nail. At 1500 miles I did not see wear...just properly scuffed.<br><br>I replaced with Pirelli Scorpion Trails, so very different tire-but I wanted something better suited to fire roads, and they are not as smooth handling as the Dunlop Qualifier on the street-perhaps with a little more scrub they'll mellow out-only have about 200 miles on them. I did expect some difference, so there is no disappointment there. I do miss the qualifiers on the Tarmac.

Not a bad tire, but you can have better
Until recently I was running a Qualifier on the front of my Versys for about 5,000+ miles. I mostly ride hard in the canyons, but I've done some touring on it as well.<br><br>When warm, this tire is great. I've never felt it lose traction in anything short of dirt. I've scraped my pegs and done full, rear-wheel-off-the-ground stoppies and the tire sticks. Turn-in speed is agile enough for most people, somewhere between a true track tire and a sport touring tire. Flickable enough for fun, but stable when touring.<br><br>The biggest problem with the Qualifier, however, is that it takes way too long to warm up. The first hour or two on the road the tire feedback is really missing, and you won't get much confidence from the grip of the rubber. I usually don't get my best from the Qualifier until the second half of the day, which is one of the main reasons I replaced it sooner than I had to.<br><br>Tread life has surpassed expectations. I'm sure I could get another 2 or 3 thousand miles from the tire if I wanted to, which isn't bad for a front tire with decent grip. Even with 2,000 miles of slab touring, there is little flattening in the middle.<br><br>So, all that said, I'm much, much happier with my new Angel GTs. They warm up much faster (20 mins tops), offer much better feedback, inspire more confidence, and (by all accounts) have crazy tread life too.<br><br>In short, you can do better than the Qualifier for not much more $$.

Good Street tire, not for agressizve sportbike riders
This tire is a pretty good bang for your buck. I am a pretty agressive streetbike rider who also like to get into the twisties. I need a very sticky as close to track tire but street appropriate.<br><br>This tire does not heat up very quickly or get as sticky as say a Michelin Pilot Power. If you arent a very agressive rider (i.e. ride often over 140mph, and lean hard in turns) then this tire will get the job done for you and at a great price.

Not very good
It's a great tire for just around town and the freeway, but do not go canyon carving with these. The rear just feels loose and unstable, I could feel my back tire slipping out and loosing traction a lot. Only use these as they come stock on '14 Yamaha r6 but replace if you wanna get aggressive

It's ok
I bought this one as a replacement for the back tire of my Yamaha R6 2014. I had two months with it and a nail went trough it. I bought it since it was the stock tire of the bike.

Great tire for the price, it is very stable in corners and great in the rain, nice tire for the street and occasional canyon runs.
However this tire has a "lazy/low profile" and so it will make you work hard to get the bike down...most people will complain it is not confidence inspiring...
I have only felt one slip and that was because I went over some road markings around a corner.
This is a great tire....but you have to utilize your skills to get the benefits.

Matches what's on my bike, and an excellent price.

Are these tires seasonal?
A shopper on May 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Dunlop need to continue making them they need to produce some 180/55-17 rear tires they're affordable and they proform very well in any weather condition sunshine or rain
I have a 1996 CBR 900RR , would like to know what you think of the Dunlop Qualifier Performance Radial, Battlax s20 and the Metzeler M3. I'm looking for the one that has best grip and does well in the rain as well?

Thanks
A shopper on Dec 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Well all I have to say is click the button. This is the only tire I will buy. I ride year round and commute from work then to school. Never had any problems with this tire and has great response. It pits the grip I will "grip it and rip it".
What is the miles rating on this tire?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No idea. I use them for track tires, so wear can vary tremendously based on track surface and how aggressively you ride.
