Maximum grip and handling, maximum driving pleasure
For high performance sports cars.
The Dunlop SP SportMaxx is a race-proven tyre that delivers maximum grip for high performance sports cars.
Outstanding dry and wet handling
Superb braking and acceleration performance
High aquaplaning resistance
Stability and comfort
The SP SportMaxx delivers Top class performance on both wet and dry surfaces. The tyre's Multi Radius Tread (MRT) offers more control in corner and outstanding dry and wet handling. Maximum grip and handling, maximum driving pleasure - for high performance sports cars: Outstanding dry and wet handling, superb braking and acceleration performance, high aquaplaning resistance plus stability and comfort.
Superior braking, cornering and handling in wet and dry conditions.
Also reduces rolling resistance, which can help enhance fuel economy.
Enhanced handling in wet and dry conditions.
Reduces the risk of losing control on wet roads.
Shorter breaking distance.
Very responsive steering.
Rim protection that protects expensive alloys from kerbing.
Longer tread life.
Excellent acceleration and braking performance.
Run on flat.
Stability and comfort. Enjoy smooth and precise driving at speed, thanks to a stable center rib design. The tread pattern minimizes noise for a quieter and more comfortable ride.
High aquaplaning resistance. The SP SportMaxx performs in wet weather conditions. Special tread regions eject water rapidly from under the tire footprint, reducing the risk of aquaplaning on rain soaked roads.
Outstanding dry and wet handling. Dunlop Touch Technology is behind the exceptional performance of the SP SportMaxx. Pressure is spread evenly across the tyre, putting more rubber in contact with the driving surface. The transition from straight to curve is smooth, giving you more time to feel the road and react when needed.
Superb braking and acceleration performance. Proven on the race track, the rubber compound delivers extra grip on both dry and wet roads. Acceleration becomes more responsive and braking times shorter. The durable compound is long wearing for increased mileage.
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.
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
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.
