Dunlop Tires

    Since 1888 when John Dunlop patented the first air-filled bicycle tire in Ireland, Dunlop Tires has never stopped innovating new tire and rubber technologies. Advancements in run-flat designs, rubber compounds, high-speed heat reduction, and wet road performance are among many things Dunlop is credited for. Modern Dunlops have led BMW Motorsport teams to many victories and are favorites of many LeMans racers. Dunlop unveils wave after wave of racing-inspired, driver-inspiring innovations.

    Dunlop tires are superior because company engineers never stop focusing on what makes a good tire a great one and constantly strive to improve performance across all measurable categories. Dunlop “Jointless Bond Technology” allows construction that maintains proper tire shapes at high speeds, “Multi-Pitch Design” uses varying size blocks in tread patterns for noise cancellation, and “Silicarbon Matrix” creates a rubber-silica compound for the highest levels of grip.


    So if you demand superior levels of grip, ride comfort, handling, stability, temperature build-up, wet road performance, or economy, Dunlops have it all. Run-flat versions of many tire models are also available. Our website has been set up to automatically guide you in the tire buying process for your vehicle. To find Dunlop tires available for your specific vehicle, select your make, model, and year. You’ll notice a range of sizes appear on the left (anywhere from 13 inches to 22 inches in diameter for example). In addition to automotive tires, Dunlops produce a wide range of tires for motorcycles, ATVs, competition go-carts, and commercial trucks. They also sponsor numerous racing and high-performance automotive events.

    Understanding Tires

    There is a lot of information on the sidewall of a tire. Typically, you'll find UTQG ratings for treadwear, traction and temperature, the size of the tire, the load rating index number with a speed rating index, the construction type (bias or radial), the D.O.T. compliance code, and construction details. On some tires used as original equipment, you may also find a marking that indicates its OE status.

    Fantastic tire for aggressive driving
    1996 Nissan 300ZX
    | Posted by | (Ellicott City, MD)

    I have the Dunlop SP Sport Signature on my other car, my Nissan 300zx Twin Turbo, and they are a fantastic tire for aggressive driving. They have a 200 tread wear rating and so they will wear fairly fast. You will probably be lucky to get 10000 miles out of them. They are a street tire. Also, they are not a great rain tire but they will do the job.

    Super grippy in the snow!

    I run Dunlops on sport package wheels, 225 all around. Good dry traction and enough snow/ice to get through unplowed/iced over side streets. I've used them for one Winter so far and I really like them. Super grippy in the snow!

    I have 34k on the ones fitted to my 2010 3.2. No problems and they look like they have at least 5k more life in them. Have maintained factory recommended pressures.

    Perfect

    I have the Dunlops on my 350 and had them on all last winter. We had several pretty good snow storms here, in Central PA, and the RX handled everything just fine. We also went to Toronto during a snow storm last February and had no problems.

    They are utterly superb
    2011 Mercedes GL Class
    | Posted by | (Philadelphia, PA)

    They are utterly superb and as good as any tire in the dry. Not quite 100% in the wet, but certainly still up there with the best of them. What they do have is great comfort and noise levels. My girlfriend has them on her brand new Mini, and that thing is just unstickable.

    So far so good
    2009 Infiniti FX50

    We put the Dunlop SP Sport 01 tires on our 2010 FX 50, and so far so good. Bought them on CARiD. Quieter ride, smoother ride, and they seem to hold the road well.
