SP 4000 T DSST CTT

Ultra High Performance All-Season

Overall Rating (8.8)


Original Equipment (O.E.) self-supporting run-flat summer tires are an appropriate tire choice for sporty vehicles manufactured in the U.S., as well as those imported from Europe and Asia. Developed for use on new cars and light trucks, these tires offer temporary extended mobility in the event a puncture allows complete pressure loss, as well as provide a sporty blend of ride quality, noise comfort and handling, along with dry and wet traction. These tires are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology (DSST) tires incorporate special sidewall reinforcements that support the weight of the vehicle even after sustaining air pressure losses that would render conventional tires immobile. While internal tire damage will likely make replacement necessary, DSST tires are designed to endure being run on while flat for up to 50 miles at speeds up to 55 mph and provide drivers the temporary extended mobility necessary to drive through stormy weather and away from dangerous situations.

Original Equipment self-supporting run-flat summer tires are most often repurchased as direct replacements for pairs and sets of worn out Original Equipment tires and Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology tires are only recommended for vehicles originally equipped with self-supporting run-flat tires and a tire pressure monitoring system.

While we attempt to provide a picture of as many of these tires as possible, the pictures used to represent these tires cannot be guaranteed to be an exact depiction of each tire's appearance because of the variety of subtle differences in tread designs and sidewall styling.

Comments I've read lots of other reviews of this tire that complained about short life (<18000 miles). I was concerned about it, but we still have plenty of tread left at 26K. No complaints. I've checked the pressures about once/month to once/2months and had to inflate a few times a year. These are expensive, but i'm willing to replace with same model.
