Maximum grip and handling, maximum driving pleasure
For high performance sports cars.
The Dunlop SP SportMaxx is a race-proven tyre that delivers maximum grip for high performance sports cars.
- Outstanding dry and wet handling
- Superb braking and acceleration performance
- High aquaplaning resistance
- Stability and comfort
The SP SportMaxx delivers Top class performance on both wet and dry surfaces. The tyre's Multi Radius Tread (MRT) offers more control in corner and outstanding dry and wet handling. Maximum grip and handling, maximum driving pleasure - for high performance sports cars: Outstanding dry and wet handling, superb braking and acceleration performance, high aquaplaning resistance plus stability and comfort.
Superior braking, cornering and handling in wet and dry conditions.
Also reduces rolling resistance, which can help enhance fuel economy.
Enhanced handling in wet and dry conditions.
Reduces the risk of losing control on wet roads.
Shorter breaking distance.
Very responsive steering.
Rim protection that protects expensive alloys from kerbing.
Longer tread life.
Excellent acceleration and braking performance.
Run on flat.
Stability and comfort. Enjoy smooth and precise driving at speed, thanks to a stable center rib design. The tread pattern minimizes noise for a quieter and more comfortable ride.
High aquaplaning resistance. The SP SportMaxx performs in wet weather conditions. Special tread regions eject water rapidly from under the tire footprint, reducing the risk of aquaplaning on rain soaked roads.
Outstanding dry and wet handling. Dunlop Touch Technology is behind the exceptional performance of the SP SportMaxx. Pressure is spread evenly across the tyre, putting more rubber in contact with the driving surface. The transition from straight to curve is smooth, giving you more time to feel the road and react when needed.
Superb braking and acceleration performance. Proven on the race track, the rubber compound delivers extra grip on both dry and wet roads. Acceleration becomes more responsive and braking times shorter. The durable compound is long wearing for increased mileage.
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.
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
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.
The exact size of a tyre can be found on its sidewall.
The following chart shows you how to read a tyre size.
