Key Benefits

  • Drivability in all winter weather conditions

    Drivability in all winter weather conditions

    The Winter Sport 3D is optimized to handle every kind of winter condition, thanks to three different sipes positioned on specific parts of the tire.

  • Superb dry handling

    Superb dry handling

    The SP Winter Sport 3D benefits from Dunlop Touch Technology to give you a better feel for the road – crucial for establishing control and handling. A new interlocking 3D sipe creates a tight shoulder area, which improves handling and stability on dry roads.

  • Excellent wet and dry grip

    Excellent wet and dry grip

    The special silica compound stays flexible at low temperatures to give you high levels of grip on wet and dry roads. Pressure is distributed evenly across a wide contact patch, helping to maintain road adherence.

  • Aquaplaning resistance

    Aquaplaning resistance

    Directional grooves create rapid and turbulence-free water drainage, increasing aquaplaning resistance.

Technologies

  • RunOnFlat

    Dunlop Self Supporting Technology (DSST)

    Dunlop RunOnFlat Technology allows for continued driving after a puncture or blowout for up to 80km. RunOnFlat tires use reinforced sidewalls, which enable the tire to maintain mobility after a complete loss of air pressure.

    Safety Notice
    Dunlop RunOnFlat tires should only be mounted on cars that are designed for run flat tires and equipped with a fully operating tire pressure warning device, such as Dunlop WARNAIR. A maximum distance of 80km/50 miles and maximum speed of 80 kmh/50 mph should not be exceeded. Please refer to your car’s manual as manufacturers’ advice for a particular vehicle may differ.

  • 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.

  • Jointless Belt (JLB)

    A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.

    Benefits
    Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.

  • Maximum Flange Shield (MFS)

    A rim flange protection system. MFS employs a profile of rubber that runs around the circumference of the tire above the wheel flange. This creates a protective buffer zone.

    Benefits
    Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.

  • Specific bead seat system

    Strengthens the link between tire 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.

  • Multi Radius Tread (MRT)

    MRT designs employ ten different radii and are therefore more precise. This results in highly effective pressure deployment on the road contact patch. The effect is smoother transitions from straight to corner, leading to more precise and progressive reactions.

    Benefits
    Significantly better control over the evolution of the footprint in all driving conditions; responsive wet and dry handling; increased cornering control.
