Key Benefits

  • Balanced performance on wet, snow and ice

    Balanced performance on wet, snow and ice

    The SP WinterResponse answers the varying demands of winter driving. An asymmetric pattern design means that dedicated areas perform specific tasks, resulting in a good balance of wet, snow and ice driving properties.

  • Outstanding traction on snow

    Outstanding traction on snow

    Drive with confidence in heavy snow conditions. The tread design features two types of blades that work together to help maintain good traction, braking and cornering on snow.

  • Excellent cold weather grip

    Excellent cold weather grip

    The SP WinterResponse benefits from a high silica tread compound that retains elasticity at low temperatures, increasing traction on ice and snow.

  • Superior road feedback

    Superior road feedback

    When driving on slippery winter roads, getting the right feedback from your car is crucial. The SP WinterResponse benefits from Dunlop Touch Technology, a set of advanced features that give you a better feel for the road surface.

Technologies

  • 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; increased resistance to aquaplaning.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Jointless Belt (JLB)

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

    Benefits
    Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.

  • 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.
