Superior dry handling and fuel efficiency, for city cars
The Dunlop SP StreetResponse delivers superior dry handling for city cars.
Superior dry handling
Better braking on wet
The SP Street Response is designed for urban compact cars with superior dry handling. Includes Dunlop Touch Technology® delivering subtle and precise road feedback for improved control. Superior dry handling and fuel efficiency, for city cars: Superior dry handling, better braking on wet and fuel efficient.
Asymmetrical tread design for enhanced grip on wet and dry surfaces. Specific bead seat system for a tighter communication channel between tyre and wheel rim resulting in better feel of the road and control. Flatter tread profile for increased stability and steering precision. Multi Radius Tread technology (MRT) for more precise and progressive reactions.
Better control in both wet and dry conditions
Rim protection that protects expensive alloys from kerbing
Longer tread life
Excellent steering precision
Excellent grip due to larger surface area contacting the road
Fuel efficient compounds. The special tread compound lowers rolling resistance to give you greater fuel efficiency, without compromising wet grip.
Superior dry handling with Touch Technology. Enjoy responsive dry handling thanks to Dunlop Touch Technology. A flatter tread profile puts more rubber in contact with the road, resulting in improved grip and steering precision. A tight link is maintained between rim and tyre, giving you a tactile feel for the driving surface. With enhanced road feedback, driving becomes more enjoyable.
Better braking on wet. Experience confident driving in wet weather. The SP StreetResponse benefits from an asymmetric tread design to increase grip on wet roads. Grooves in the tread evacuate water rapidly, reducing the risk of aquaplaning in heavy rain.
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 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.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
