A high performance tyre for unpredictable winter weather
The SP WinterSport 3D is a high performance tire that enables you to stay in control and react quickly to all weather conditions.
Drivability in all weather conditions
Excellent dry handling
Improved wet and dry grip
The Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D gives better handling and stability when the road turns nasty and high performance handling without compromise when it’s dry. The SP Winter Sport 3D is a unique tyre for high performance driving on snowy/icy, wet and dry surfaces. A high performance tire for unpredictable winter weather: Drivability in all weather conditions, excellent dry handling, improved wet and dry grip and aquaplaning resistance.
Better handling and stability on snowy/icy and wet roads
High performance handling when it’s dry
A tyre with 3 different types of blades cleverly positioned on 3 different parts of the tyre for high performance.
Great braking on all surfaces, including snow
Longer tread life
Ultimate control on winter roads
Rim protection that protects expensive alloys from kerbing
Exceptional acceleration and braking at high speeds
Aquaplaning resistance. Directional grooves create rapid and turbulence free water drainage, increasing aquaplaning resistance.
Drivability in all winter weather conditions. The WinterSport 3D is optimised to handle every kind of winter condition, thanks to three different sipes positioned on specific parts of the tyre.
Superb dry handling. The SP WinterSport 3D benefits from Dunlop Touch Technology to give you a better feel for the road – crucial for establishing control and handling. A new interlocking 3D sipe creates a tight shoulder area, which improves handling and stability on dry roads.
Excellent wet and dry grip. The special silica compound stays flexible at low temperatures to give you high levels of grip on wet and dry roads. Pressure is distributed evenly across a wide contact patch, helping to maintain road adherence.
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.
Silica-Plus Compound. A motorsport derived tread compound that delivers high levels of grip, particularly on wet roads and in low temperatures.Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance; high grip in wet and cold-weather conditions; low wear and tear. 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
Multi Blade System. Winter driving conditions can vary greatly. From cold and dry to snow or sleet, these conditions make very high demands on a tyre. Dunlop’s multiple blade system meets this challenge head on, with different types of blades for varying winter road conditions.Benefits Consistent performance in various winter conditions.
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.

16.01.2021 from Alistair Whyte These winter tyres/wheels are on the vehicle from November through to March. The vehicle feels safe and secure to drive in any weather conditions, including when away skiing in the French Alps.
02.06.2015 from Raja Nazir It was very good experience with tyre test. Good Customer service and good quality of goods.
21.05.2015 from chris Great all round tyre and reasonably priced.
15.02.2015 from Peter street Tyres are kept on car all year and provide excellent grip both summer and winter.
