The Sport BluResponse uses a polymer compound to give you better grip and handling on wet roads. Large central grooves in the tread evacuate water quickly, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
Dunlop’s innovative Short Braking blocks reduce braking distances on wet and dry roads. Designed for high performance driving, these extra-stiff blocks increase road contact under braking force.
The Sport BluResponse employs an aerodynamic shape and low-heat compound to reduce rolling resistance by 30% compared to its predecessor*. That translates to average savings of €100 per year in fuel costs**.
Closed shoulder grooves suppress noise emission, for a quieter and more comfortable ride.
* Compared to the average performance of four leading competitors and its predecessor. Tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in September 2012 by order of Goodyear Dunlop. Tire Size: 205/55 R16 91V; Test Car: VW Golf; Test Locations: Mireval (FR), Papenburg (D) and Garching (D); Report No. 76249744
** Fuel savings based on estimated fuel consumption reduction of 5% over an average annual mileage of 14000 km when compared with predecessor product, Dunlop SP FastResponse at an average price per liter of €1.59 and a fuel consumption of 9L. Actual results may vary based on – but not restricted to – road and weather conditions, driving style, wear conditions, tire size, tire pressure and vehicle maintenance. €1.59/liter unleaded price based on October average fuel price in France.

Drive with Confidence
A motorsports heritage that drives every innovation. A passion for advancing the driving experience.
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.
Improved performance on straight lines and around corners; increased resistance to aquaplaning.
The new generation of Dunlop tires features a flatter tread profile with a 4-8% bigger contact patch, depending on size and type of tire. A bigger contact patch delivers more stability and enhanced road feedback, allowing tires to respond quickly and precisely.
Increased stability and steering precision; reduced heel and toe wear; excellent cornering stability and precision; superior dry grip.
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.
Significantly better control over the evolution of the footprint in all driving conditions; responsive wet and dry handling; increased cornering control.
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.
Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.
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.
High aquaplaning resistance; increased road contact; enhanced cornering stability and steering precision.
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.*
Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.
* Only available in select sizes
A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.
Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.
