Excellent grip and braking ability. Enjoy superior grip and shorter braking on wet and dry, thanks to a unique tread compound containing motorsports derived nanoparticles. The asymmetric groove arrangement enhances grip further, giving you more control at motorway speeds.

Driving precision with Kevlar® technology. The SP SportMaxx TT benefits from DuPont™ Kevlar® technology to bring performance to a higher level. This tough compound creates a stiffer sidewall, leading to improved driving precision. Dunlop Touch Technology ensures high levels of responsiveness and road feedback.

Superb handling and cornering. The tread design of the SportMaxx TT manages the pressure across the tyre more effectively, improving handling performance on wet and dry. Smooth transitions from straight to curve give you more time to feel the road and react, even at high speeds. Stiff shoulder blocks add extra stability when cornering.

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.

Silica-Plus Compound. A motorsport derived tread compound that delivers high levels of grip, particularly on wet roads and in low temperatures.Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance; high grip in wet and cold-weather conditions; low wear and tear.

Nanoparticles. Tread compound mixed with nanoparticles of racing carbon black. These nanoparticles are combined with resin and polymers to provide excellent adhesion on dry and wet roads.Benefits Superior dry and wet grip, precise braking, improved wear.

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.

Variable land to sea ratio. Asymmetric tread design with a variable land to sea ratio delivers high levels of aquaplaning resistance. The massive outer shoulder block ensures rapid and turbulence free water drainage, while also ensuring outstanding cornering stability.Benefits High aquaplaning resistance; increased road contact; enhanced cornering stability and steering precision.

Asymmetric Tread Design. Asymmetric tread design provides improved handling and aquaplaning resistance. The continuous center rib increases stability and precision. The asymmetric groove arrangement enhances grip on wet and dry surfaces.Benefits Improved performance on straight lines and around corners.

Flatter tread profile. The new generation of Dunlop tyres features a flatter tread profile with a 4-8% bigger contact patch, depending on size and type of tyre. A bigger contact patch delivers more stability and enhanced road feedback, allowing tires to respond quickly and precisely.Benefits Increased stability and steering precision; reduced heel and toe wear; excellent cornering stability and precision; superior dry grip.

Multi Blade System. Winter driving conditions can vary greatly. From cold and dry to snow or sleet, these conditions make very high demands on a tyre. Dunlop’s multiple blade system meets this challenge head on, with different types of blades for varying winter road conditions.Benefits Consistent performance in various winter conditions.

Dual Silica Compound. This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance.

The European Tyre Label

Introduction
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.

Benefits
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.

Symbols
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise

Take action
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.

More information: http://ec.europa.eu/energy/efficiency/tyres/labelling_en.htm

Choose from our large online selection or ask us for advice. Our experts are happy to help you choose the appropriate tyres from our extensive range of products.

Fuel Efficiency

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
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.

Wet grip

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.

Tyre Noise

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.

Symbol
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.

Very pleased with the road-holding and tyre life on the Mercedes C Class Sport is better than more expensive premium brands. Also use the Dunlop Winter Sport 3D.

30.05.2012 from StefanG
Not an inspiring drive and not hard-wearing. I'd forgive the first point if the second point was outstanding, but they are only a 'competent' tyre in my opinion. I'll be trying something else shortly as they're due for renewal

20.02.2012 from Mark
poor wet driving, horrible wear...

12.06.2010 from Des Faul
Nice tyre, good for summer use, really sticky but suffers from high wear as a result, , , Had Pirelli pzero neros before and would have the dunlops over them any day.
