Product description

SPORT MAXX RT

Motorsports grip and braking for a dynamic driving experience

  • Exceptional grip on wet and dry
  • Enhanced cornering control
  • Shorter braking at motorway speeds
  • Fuel efficient design

 

KEY BENEFITS

EXCEPTIONAL GRIP

The SportMaxx RT delivers superb wet and dry grip thanks to adaptive compound technology. Motorsports derived polymers adapt to the textures of the road surface, maximising road contact and increasing grip.

SHORTER BRAKING AT MOTORWAY SPEEDS

Dunlop’s innovative Short Braking blocks help to ensure shorter braking distances when travelling at speed. Designed for high performance driving, these extra stiff blocks increase road contact under braking force.

ENHANCED CORNERING CONTROL

Enjoy stable high speed handling with smooth transitions from straight to curve. Massive outer shoulder blocks help to enhance stability and handling when cornering.

FUEL EFFICIENT DESIGN

The SportMaxx RT employs a lightweight construction to reduce rolling resistance - lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

 

TECHNOLOGIES

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.

JOINTLESS BELT (JLB)

A Hybrid Overlay Technology that reduces circumferential deformations at high speeds.Benefits Superior high speed stability; smooth and even wear.

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

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; increased resistance to aquaplaning.

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.

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.

DUAL SILICA COMPOUND

This compound improves acceleration performance and promotes low wear and tear.Benefits Superb braking and acceleration performance; excellent handling on summer and autumn roads; high grip; wear resistance.

POWER BRAKING BLOCKS

High stiffness blocks that maintain rigidity when braking force is applied. The increased stiffness helps to ensure optimal road contact when braking at high speeds.Benefits Shorter braking distances, especially at high speeds.

ADAPTIVE COMPOUND

A compound technology that uses motorsports derived polymers to adapt to the texture of the road surface. With enhanced contact at the micro level, overall tyre to road contact is increased.Benefits Superior grip and braking performance.

EU Tyre Label Description

Dunlop SP Sport Maxx RT 225/40R18 92Y MFS MO XL
C A 68dB C1

In November 2012 a standard label for vehicle tyres was introduced in the EU. Based on three criteria it gives information about fuel efficiency, wet grip rating and noise levels.

 

Fuel efficiency  - This label shows you how a tyre performs on fuel consumption - fuel efficiency is graded from A to G (rating D is not used for passenger cars). The difference between an A rating and a G rating could mean a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 7.5%. To put this in real terms, choosing A-rated tyres instead of G-rated tyres could save you more than 6 litres of fuel every 1,000 kilometres (based on an average consumption of 8 litres/100km)

  Wet grip - This label shows how well a tyre brakes in wet conditions. Graded from A to G (ratings D and G are not used for passenger cars). In an emergency situation, a few metres can make all the difference. For a passenger car applying full brakes from 50mph, a set of A-rated tyres will brake up to 18 metres shorter than a set of F-rated tyres (braking distances may vary according to driving conditions and other influencing factors)

 

Noise - This label shows you the noise level in decibels of a tyre. The tyre is categorised in 3 classes illustrated by 3 waves: 1 black wave - Quiet (3dB or more below the European limit), 2 black waves - Moderate (between the European limit and 3dB below) and 3 black waves - Noisy (above the European limit)
