Dunlop ZII 205/50-16 (Mini 03/2014-07/2014, 158 runs)

I think this was the first tire that was available in the now mandatory 200tw, which is why I went with them. The grip was pretty decent overall, but these tires heat cycled out before the tread wore down (part of why I elected to get ZIIss for the NB Miata), and I ended up giving them away in June, after about 150 runs. By the last 30 or so runs, the tires had really fallen off of what they had used to be. In order for the tires to be grippy, they couldn’t be too hot, which involved spraying the tires down often and heat cycling them out. In general I’ll probably shy away from this brand if possible, just not my personal preference.
