Delinte Thunder D7 (Our Review)

Overall Assessment

A tire hits gold when it combines reliable performance with affordable pricing, and that’s exactly what Delinte aimed to do when they designed the Thunder D7. Not only does this tire ensure the right degree of traction, grip, and fluid handling, but it also delivers a great deal of comfort, which is rare to find in a UHP tire. 

The Thunder D7 utilizes a blaze-shaped pattern for its tread design, which, combined with the silica content that’s infused in the tread compound, ensures excellent traction on dry and wet terrain. Further, it improves the tire’s cornering capabilities as well as smoothens the steering. 

The tire features wide circumferential grooves for reliable wet traction. The grooves also help eliminate the risk of hydroplaning. There’s a continuous center rib that not only improves the tire’s stability but also boosts its acceleration and braking performances even at high speeds.

Most tire manufacturers ping pong their tread designs amongst each other, which results in a lot of similarities between tires within similar classes. Delinte, on the other hand, utilizes a unique groove shape with a directional pattern for the tread. 

To add, the tire’s pitch blocks are spaced differently, so that road noise is kept at bay. Granted, it’s not the quietest ultra-high performance tire you can find on the market, but at its price range, it’s definitely not an issue. 

Pros:

  • Great grip and traction on dry and wet terrain
  • Excellent handling and cornering capabilities
  • Offers a smooth and comfortable ride quality
  • Made with the budget-minded driver in mind

Cons:

  • Doesn’t offer great traction in snow and slush
  • Tread life could use some slight improvements
