Product description

SPORT MAXX RT 2

A champion in grip and steering precision

  • Enhanced cornering grip on wet and dry roads
  • Increased road feedback and steering precision
  • Shorter braking distance, especially at high speeds

 

KEY BENEFITS

INCREASED ROAD FEEDBACK AND STEERING PRECISION

Reduce the diameter and the coating to get them closer to the road and boost steering precision.

ENHANCED CORNERING GRIP ON WET AND DRY ROADS

Deliver enhanced strength and stifness thanks to more rubber-to-road contact and ensure a better cornering grip.

SHORTER BRAKING DISTANCE, ESPECIALLY AT HIGH SPEEDS

Optimizes geometry leading to increased block rigidity ensuring a shorter high speed braking distance. 

*Compared to the average of the premium competitors in the test. Tested against 4 direct Premium competitors in September 2015 by TÜV SÜD Automotive in Mireval; size 225/45R17 91Y; Golf VI 1.4 TSI and Golf VI GTi.

 

TECHNOLOGIES

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.

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.

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.

 

TEST RESULTS











EU Tyre Label Description

Dunlop SP Sport Maxx RT 2 225/40R18 92Y 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)
