Providing enhanced cornering grip and increased steering precision, the Dunlop Sport Maxx RT 2 is an ideal high performance tyre choice for dynamic drivers. Designed with specialist power braking blocks, which maintain high stiffness when the brakes are applied, this tyre works to retain optimal contact with the road when braking. This ensures that the tyre retains shape and results in shorter braking distances at high speeds for optimal safety and performance.
The Dunlop Sport Maxx RT 2 provides enhanced cornering grip on wet and dry surfaces thanks to its flatter tread profile and an optimal level of rubber to road contact. In addition, its asymmetric tread design works to enhance stability and precision on wet and dry surfaces.
A summer tyre designed to maximise your track performance, the SportMaxx Race is the best fit for high performance vehicles and dynamic drivers. Derived from Dunlop Motorsports technology, this tyre has been constructed using a high grip racing compound which offers exceptional levels of road adherence and braking ability.
Thanks to a hybrid overlay, the SportMaxx Race delivers precise steering and handling stability. This is because this overlay limits tyre distortion at high speeds and it is this maintenance of tyre shape which helps the tyre to remain stable. The SportMaxx Race also offers an enhanced cornering grip due to high angle ribs which increase lateral stiffness and result in improved control.
Designed directly around Dunlop’s innovative Touch Technology®, the SP Sport Maxx GT tyre delivers superb handling. The asymmetric tread ensures precise steering and stability, keeping you in control with outstanding road feedback. The optimised tread pattern and a flatter profile translate to the tightest connection to the road, while the reduced land to sea area gives more precise steering and stability.
The new Hybrid Overlay Bandage (HOB) helps limit tyre distortion, even under high-speed conditions. The Multi Radius Tread Technology creates a smoother transition between tyre shapes as they change for straights and bends. The advanced carbon black compound increases dry grip.
The SP Sport 2000/2000e offers an exceptional driving experience for high performance vehicles. This tyre can perform in all summer conditions, excelling in wet weather.
