The SP Sport 9000 is a great all round high performance tyre. The SP Sport 9000 delivers technology and performance for the enthusiast looking for the very best. The Dunlop SP Sport 9000 features a distinctive 'sweep' directional tread design that sluices water away like a turbine wheel, while the silica tread compound promotes amazing wet weather traction and reduces rolling resistance. It's available in a variety of sizes to fit local and imported exotic and performance cars. Responsive sports handling with maximum comfort - for high performance vehicles: Enhanced acceleration and braking, superb handling and safety on wet, greater stability at high speed plus comfort and durability.
Directional silica compound tread pattern. Massive grip and precise handling control, wet or dry high resistance to aquaplaning rock solid stability at high speeds. Jointless aramid casing construction, resulting in lower unsprung weight and superb uniformity for smoothness. Construction tuned for quietness resulting in lower pass-by and in-car noise.
Specific bead seat system. Strengthens the link between tyre and rim for a more precise driving experience. Like the grip between your hand and the steering wheel, the Specific Bead Seat System enhances control and conveys outstanding road feedback. Benefits Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.
Jointless Belt (JLB). A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.Benefits Superior high speed stability
Maximum Flange Shield (MFS). A rim flange protection system. MFS employs a profile of rubber that runs around the circumference of the tyre above the wheel flange. This creates a protective buffer zone.* Benefits Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.* Only available in select sizes
- Excellent grip and control on all roads
- Rim protection that protects expensive alloys from kerbing
- Ultimate quiet drive and fuel efficient
- Run on flat
- Longer tread life
More stability at motorway speeds. The SP Sport 9000 keeps its shape at motorway speeds, giving you a smooth and stable ride. A tight link is maintained between tyre and rim, for precise control and steering response.
Superb handling on wet. Experience confident control in wet weather. Sharp directional grooves rapidly disperse water in heavy rain conditions.
Enhanced acceleration and braking. Get maximum enjoyment from your high performance car with the SP Sport 9000. The Silica Plus racing compound delivers noticeable improvements in acceleration grip and braking ability. Pressure is evenly dispersed across the tyre to help your car stick to the road.
Comfort and durability. The tread is designed to reduce interior and exterior noise, resulting in a quieter experience for you and those around you. A long wearing compound gives you more miles between tyre changes.
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
