If you’re looking for a premium summer tyre, in our experience you should always look at what Dunlop has on offer. The Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT 2 is a case in point, with excellent all round performance and exceptional performance in aquaplaning tests.
When it comes to expertise, Dunlop tops the lot. Founded by pneumatic tyre pioneer John Boyd Dunlop way back in 1889, the company has been at the forefront of innovation since its inception. Today, Dunlop continues to develop high-performance, long life tyres with safety built in.
The Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT 2 has been developed with strong cornering capabilities for enhanced steering precision. Shorter braking distances and high levels of aquaplaning resistance add up to a safe and comfortable tyre that translates your driving impulses directly into action.
Dunlop tyres are designed to excel in real road situations thanks to a blend of design features and advanced technology. The SportMaxx RT 2 makes use of jointless belt technology to reduce tyre deformation at high speeds, resulting in stability and even tread wear. The maximum flange shield offers superior rim protection by using a rubber profile to act as a buffer zone and protect wheels from kerbing.
Dunlop has also focused on an asymmetric tread design that delivers multiple benefits for the driver. While the central rib provides stability, the asymmetric groove enhances wet and dry grip. The new flatter tread delivers a contact patch up to 8% larger than standard for enhanced stability and quick and responsive steering. That precision is further enhanced by the use of multi-radius tread. The 10 different radii deliver a smoother transition between corners and straights for greater cornering control.
Dunlop uses high stiffness power braking blocks to ensure optimal road contact during high-speed braking. Increased rigidity when braking force is applied results in shorter braking distances for improved safety. The SportMaxx RT 2 is created from Dunlop’s revolutionary dual silica compound. Tyres manufactured from this material have superior acceleration performance with lower wear. Better performance needn’t compromise the life of your Dunlop tyres.
Motorists have already noticed the precision handling and stability of the SportMaxx RT 2 plus its outstanding wet weather performance. Users have also commented on how quiet these tyres run which is a result of Dunlop Noise Shield Technology which can cut cabin noise by anything up to 50%. If you’re looking for a run flat tyre, then the Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT 2 has you covered there, too. Using innovative RunOnFlat technology, you can drive at up to 50km.h on a flat, reducing the risks associated with a motorway blow-out.
This award-winning Dunlop tyre has already received positive feedback from drivers and reviewers across Europe. If you need a high-performance tyre that combines aesthetics, long life and safety features in one excellent package, the SportMaxx RT 2 delivers
