Sport car precision and driving pleasure for high performance SUVs.
The Dunlop SP QuattroMaxx delivers sports car precision and driving pleasure for high-performance SUVs.
Superb road feedback
Good grip on wet and dry roads
High aquaplaning resistance
Superb road feedback with Touch Technology. The Dunlop SP QuattroMaxx benefits from Dunlop Touch Technology to give a heightened degree of road feedback. The result is a responsive and more enjoyable driving experience.
Good grip on wet and dry roads. The Dual Silica compound delivers high levels of grip and braking ability in both wet and dry conditions. The compound is also long wearing, which means more miles between tyre changes.
High aquaplaning resistance. Deep and wide grooves in the tyre tread rapidly eject water, helping you maintain optimal control in extremely wet weather.
The SP QuattroMaxx is the ultimate dry handling sporty SUV tyre. It has been developed for the most demanding and heaviest European SUV's, providing outstanding grip to deliver maximum driving comfort and pleasure. Impressive steering precision coupled with reduced rolling resistance and enhanced aquaplaning resistance ensures this tyre always makes an impression. A true road warrior. Sport car precision and driving pleasure for high performance SUV´s: Superb road feedback, steering precision powered by DuPont™ Kevlar®, good grip on wet and dry roads and high aquaplaning resistance.
Multi Radius Tread Technology (MRT) enhances dry and wet handling, giving the driver more control in cornering. Dual Silica Compound, is derived from Motorsport technology, it promotes even wear by distributing pressure evenly across the tyre surface. Specific Bead System, a tight link between tyre and rim increases stability and delivers fast, accurate road feedback.
Very responsive steering and braking on all surfaces
Flatter tread profile results in higher stability and steering precision, whilst extending the life of the tyre's tread
The asymmetrical tread design increases the tyres aquaplaning resistance
Exceptional braking in both wet and dry conditions
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
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
Variable land to sea ratio. Asymmetric tread design with a variable land to sea ratio delivers high levels of aquaplaning resistance. The massive outer shoulder block ensures rapid and turbulence free water drainage, while also ensuring outstanding cornering stability.Benefits High aquaplaning resistance; increased road contact; enhanced cornering stability and steering precision.
Asymmetric Tread Design. 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
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.
Dual Silica Compound. This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

09.09.2014 from Roger Wilson Significantly quieter running than the original Continentals with noticeably better steering response.
Very good in the wet
20.11.2012 from Jon G Much better than the RFTs that came as standard and one of the few where you can have the same front and back on an X5 with the 20 alloys although I had to import them from Germany. I use winter tyres so not sure of snow grip etc but they give a lot of confidence when driving in summer
