UHP tyres are Ultra High Performance tyres. They are designed to provide a superior, more luxurious performance on the road for vehicles with higher horsepower. UHP tyres have a speed index of W or Y to cope with the demands of powerful cars. The tyres are wide to increase contact with the road, while the rims are smaller to create room for larger brakes and shorten your car’s stopping distances. This has the added benefit of providing a lower aspect ratio, which gives you improved handling and stability.
Our engineers aim for nothing less than perfection when building an ultra high performance (UHP) tyre. Every aspect of the drive is taken into consideration: the car’s characteristics and potentials, the road and weather conditions and of course all the challenging driving situations like speeding up, braking and cornering.
Based on their motorsport knowledge they develop technical solutions that are perfectly tuned to the highest demands.

Dunlop focuses on three key development areas when it comes to UHP tyres:
Ultra-high performance tyres improve the steering precision and responsiveness of your car. The large shoulder blocks deliver enhanced cornering grip and the grooves give you more grip and better control on the road.
The resin technology in Dunlop’s UHP tyres heats up the tyre more quickly, which increases the overall tyre to road contact.
Discover how first-class winter tyres help your performance car to deal with rain, frost, and snow.
When it comes to high volumes of rainfall, weather adapted grooves enable a larger volume of water to be evacuated underneath the tyre, preventing you from aquaplaning.
In winter temperatures, Dunlop’s UHP winter tyres remain soft for enhanced traction on cold and icy roads. Wide tread blocks reinforce the tyre’s performance by maximising the tyre’s contact with the road.
On snowy and slushy roads, the sipes channel the snow and slush aside to provide extra grip and shorten your stopping distances.
