Exceptional performance on winter roads

The SP Winter Sport 4D provides exceptional winter handling and braking ability for high performance cars. Combining a unique tread design with high grip materials, it is designed to deliver optimal control on snow, ice, wet and dry surfaces.

Control and grip in wet conditions

For days when roads are wet or thawing, the SP Winter Sport 4D features directional grooves designed to evacuate water quickly and prevent aquaplaning. The high grip compound is optimised to deliver shorter braking distances on wet roads.

Enhanced snow and ice traction

The unique tread design puts a high number of biting edges in contact with the road, giving you enhanced traction on snow and ice. Deep snow notches grab onto the surface, adding extra grip when accelerating, braking and hill climbing.

Fuel efficient design

With its lightweight construction and materials, the SP Winter Sport 4D requires less energy to roll – which means lower fuel costs and CO2 emissions from your journeys.

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.

RunOnFlat

Dunlop Self Supporting Technology (DSST)Dunlop RunOnFlat Technology allows for continued driving after a puncture or blowout for up to 80km. RunOnFlat tyres use reinforced sidewalls, which enable the tyre to maintain mobility after a complete loss of air pressure.Safety Notice Dunlop RunOnFlat tyres should only be mounted on cars that are designed for run flat tyres and equipped with a fully operating tyre pressure warning device, such as Dunlop WARNAIR. A maximum distance of 80km/50 miles and maximum speed of 80 kmh/50 mph should not be exceeded. Please refer to your car’s manual as manufacturers’ advice for a particular vehicle may differ.

Maximum Flange Shield (MFS)

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

Flatter tread profile

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.

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.

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.

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.

4D Sipe System

The 4D Sipe system sees the tread separated into a number of blocks that increase friction and stability during cornering. The system delivers superb lateral grip in snow.Benefits Superb cornering, even in snow.

V-Shape Grooves

‘V’ shaped grooves in conjunction with the tread’s basic grooves create a fine network, which collects snow in the tread. This snow-on-snow contact enhances traction and grip.Benefits Advanced snow handling.

Directional Tread Design

Designed for those cold wet morning drives, the directional tread design forces the water between the grooves. Water is quickly channeled away from the tyre surface, reducing the risk of aquaplaning.Benefits Reduced risk of aquaplaning.

Functional Polymers

Functional Polymers in the tread compound produce enhanced performance characteristics at low temperatures, improving road adhesion when winter temperatures plummet.Benefits Exceptional grip at low temperatures.
