Motorsports grip and braking for a dynamic driving experience
United Kingdom, 2014
Test size: 225/45R17; Test vehicle: VW Golf VII GTi Test Track: Bridgestone Italy
"With wins in the rolling resistance test and the price category, it wasn´t all bad news for the Dunlop. It also had good feeling with a limit that was easy to judge.
It was just a shame that the limit wasn´t a bit higher."

The SportMaxx RT delivers superb wet and dry grip thanks to adaptive compound technology. Motorsports derived polymers adapt to the textures of the road surface, maximising road contact and increasing grip.
Enjoy stable high speed handling with smooth transitions from straight to curve. Massive outer shoulder blocks help to enhance stability and handling when cornering.
Dunlop’s innovative Short Braking blocks help to ensure shorter braking distances when travelling at speed. Designed for high performance driving, these extra stiff blocks increase road contact under braking force.
The SportMaxx RT employs a lightweight construction to reduce rolling resistance - lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
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 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.
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.
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.
Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.
A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.
Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.
A motorsport derived tread compound that delivers high levels of grip, particularly on wet roads and in low temperatures.
Superb braking and acceleration performance; high grip in wet and cold-weather conditions; low wear and tear.
This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.
Superb braking and acceleration performance; excellent handling on summer and autumn roads; high grip; wear resistance.
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.
Enhanced road feedback; greater stability and precision.
A compound technology that uses motorsports derived polymers to adapt to the texture of the road surface. With enhanced contact at the micro level, overall tyre to road contact is increased.
Superior grip and braking performance
High stiffness blocks that maintain rigidity when braking force is applied. The increased stiffness helps to ensure optimal road contact when braking at high speeds.
Shorter braking distances, especially at high speeds.
