Manufacturer: Dunlop
Tyre: Dunlop SP Sport Maxx


The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres are ultra-high performance tyres from Dunlop tyres catering to the performance requirements of performance oriented sports cars, coupes and luxury saloons. Part of the Dunlop SP tyre range that comprises popular tyres such as the Dunlop SP Fast Response tyres that deliver an exhilarating ride experience, the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres take the ride experience to unprecedented high levels without compromising on safety and comfort.

Improved handling characteristics: The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres exhibit exceptional handling characteristics on dry as well as wet surface. The tyres feature Dunlop’s patented Multi Radius Tread (MRT) technology, which essentially ensures that contact patch is increased and that there is uniform pressure distribution in the contact patch. Because more rubber makes contact with the surface, handling and control is maximum on wet as well as dry surface.
Enhanced braking responsiveness: The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres incorporate the Dual Silica tread compound, which offers superb braking responsiveness by enhancing traction levels significantly. Traction is maximum on wet and dry surface, reducing stopping distances on all surface conditions and improving safety parameters significantly.
More efficient wet performance: The tread pattern of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres comprises a multiple rib pattern that includes a twin hydro paddle pattern in the intermediate ribs. This results in efficient water expulsion from the tread in a turbine like motion with no eddies. As a result, wet safety is greatly maximised and chances of skidding on wet surface are greatly reduced.
Greater drive comfort: The central rib enhances tread stability, maximising ride comfort significantly. The 5 pitch technology helps reduce tyre noise that further adds to the overall ride comfort and enhances the ride experience.

The Dunlop Sport Maxx range are excellent all round performance tyres. What makes them even more appealing is the fact that they are offered at highly competitive prices from Tyre Shopper.

I some times corner very fast and I have never had any protest from the tyres. The ability to dart around is impressive. I do not drive like a mad thing but enjoy fast driving now and then. The tyres last approximately 18000 miles, in line with other tyres I have purchased for my Megan sports ( I have owned Petrol and Deisel vesrsion) The wide tyres generate a lot of noise on concrete motorways, quite intrusive actually, on smooth tarmac they are very quiet though. I can however whole hartedly recommend the tyre for the job it does - keeping me on the road!

Always been a Michelin user but because of price decided to give Dunlop ago and i must say very impressed good at high speed and sure footed when cornering and braking will have to wait and see how well they wear.

These tyres are a huge improvement over the previously fitted Kumho tyres. The Dunlops are better in the dry, and significantly better in the wet. They are quieter too, which was a real bonus on our holiday trip to France. I can't comment on wear having only covered 2,000 miles or so since having them fitted, but there are no signs of deterioration yet. I have no hesitation in recommending these, and have already done so since purchasing them.

Usually use pirelli on my car so was sceptical, but these tyres are so much better and the car feels somewhat tighter and well balanced. My car has had some major tuning tweaks and pushes out very high torque and the only thing I could complain about is in the wet it will spin the wheels from a standing start but that isn't a slur on the tyres just my engine combined with a heavy clutch and a too eager left foot. Highly recommended. Would definitely buy these again.
