There was some conversation about Dunlop Elite 4 tires on here a few weeks ago. I put a new 250 Radial on the rear this spring to match the front I put on last year. Did 2 trips over the last 3 weekends and encountered very heavy rain on both trips. The Dunlop Elite 4 rear tire did NOT preform as advertised in the heavy rain. We were 2 up I'm 250 lbs wife is 185 lbs we had full luggage tire pressure 42 lbs tire is rotating in the correct direction. Both times you could feel the rear tire loose contact with the pavement and hydroplane. If you are running these tires get off the road in heavy rain save your life and your ride. The Elite 3 was far superior in heavy rain never had this happen through 3 sets of tires.
