A champion in grip and steering precision
The Sport Maxx RT 2 delivered excellent aquaplane results, was agile on the dry track and ranked second on the road route for its balance of feelsome steering and good ride comfort. Recommended. BLACKCIRCLES SAYS… More than 2200 reviews have resulted in an overall customer rating of 4.6/5 for the Dunlop, many commenting on its low noise and reliable grip.
Place 4 of 9, Size: 225/40R18
Reduce the diameter and the coating to get them closer to the road and boost steering precision
Deliver enhanced strength and stifness thanks to more rubber-to-road contact and ensure a better cornering grip
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.
A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.Benefits Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.
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.* Benefits Protects expensive alloy wheels from kerbing.* Only available in select sizes
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.
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.Benefits 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.Benefits Significantly better control over the evolution of the footprint in all driving conditions; responsive wet and dry handling; increased cornering control.
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.Benefits Shorter braking distances, especially at high speeds.
This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance; excellent handling on summer and autumn roads; high grip; wear resistance.
Our tyres can be mounted on the majority of models from top car manufacturers - in some cases you'll find them originally fitted.
