Technology and Innovation

Noise Shield technology

What is it?

A tyre technology that cuts interior sound levels by up to 50%.*

It works by bonding an advanced polyurethane foam layer to the tyre’s inner surface to reduce interior vehicle noise, without compromising performance capabilities.

Leaving you to sit back and enjoy the roar of your engine.

What are the benefits?

  • Up to 50% less interior sound
  • Does not compromise performance capabilities

*Based on internal vehicle road measurements, tested October 2011 by Dunlop engineers on the noise lanes of GIC*L test facilities in Luxembourg. Tire size: 255/45R18 on Audi A7.

Multi Blade System

What is it?

A multiple-blade tyre that rises to the challenges that extreme and varied winter driving conditions can throw at you. Each type of blade excels in particular conditions, making the tyre suitable for all kinds of winter weather.

What are the benefits?

Different types of blades for varying winter road conditions

Specific Bead Seat System

What is it?

A system that strengthens the link between tyre and rim to give you maximum control, a more precise driving experience and outstanding road feedback.

What are the benefits?

  • Enhanced road feedback
  • More stability and precision

RunOnFlat Tyres

What are they?

Don’t let a puncture prevent you from reaching your destination. Our RunOnFlat tyres use technology that lets you drive up to 50 miles on a flat tyre.

Safety Notice

Dunlop Run On Flat tyres should only be mounted on cars designed for run flat tyres and equipped with a tyre pressure warning device, e.g. Dunlop WARNAIR.
