This is one of the very first sets of Dunlop Direzza ZIIs received by a customer in the U.S. As we mentioned in this 1/10/2013 update, "...various Direzza ZII sizes on the pre-order link have different Estimated Arrival dates ranging from as early as 1/20 to as late as 3/20." These 255/40/17s were received on 1/19!
The very sight of these tires makes my pulse quicken. These long, big blocks will go to really good use very soon. We will have first track reports on the Dunlop ZIIs in early March.
