  • Key benefits
  • Technologies

Increased road feedback and steering precision

Reduce the diameter and the coating to get them closer to the road and boost steering precision

Enhanced cornering grip on wet and dry roads

Deliver enhanced strength and stifness thanks to more rubber-to-road contact and ensure a better cornering grip

Shorter braking distance, especially at high speeds

Optimizes geometry leading to increased block rigidity ensuring a shorter high speed braking distance

*Compared to the average of the premium competitors in the test. Tested against 4 direct Premium competitors in September 2015 by TÜV SÜD Automotive (Report No. 713066268 ) in Mireval; size 225/45R17 91Y; Golf VI 1.4 TSI and Golf VI GTi.

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.*BenefitsProtects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.* Only available in select sizes

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.BenefitsImproved performance on straight lines and around corners; increased resistance to aquaplaning.

Flatter tread profile

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. Benefits: Increased stability and steering precision; reduced heel and toe wear; excellent cornering stability and precision; superior dry grip.

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.

Short Braking Blocks

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.BenefitsShorter braking distances, especially at high speeds.

Dual Silica Compound

This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.BenefitsSuperb braking and acceleration performance; excellent handling on summer and autumn roads; high grip; wear resistance.
