SP SPORT 5000 SYMETRICAL

Ultra High Performance All-Season

Overall Rating (8.0)


The SP Sport 5000 is Dunlop's Ultra High Performance All-Season radial developed for drivers of sports cars, sporty coupes and performance sedans. The SP Sport 5000 is designed to provide ultra high performance and all-season versatility by blending traction on dry and wet roads with traction in light snow.

Depending on the tire size and/or Original Equipment vehicle application, the tires feature either an asymmetric or symmetric tread design to tune their comfort, traction and performance characteristics. Most lower profile sizes feature an asymmetric tread design that feature large interconnected outer shoulder blocks and independent intermediate tread blocks to enhance dry road cornering and stability, while the inner tread blocks with open shoulder grooves enhance wet traction and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Most higher aspect ratio sizes feature a symmetric version with large shoulder blocks, notched intermediate ribs and a continuous center rib to balance dry cornering and handling with wet traction and hydroplaning resistance.

Full-face, cross-cut sipes engineered into all sizes provide more biting edges for slush and snow traction, and an exclusive high performance all-season tread compound is used to blend traction, treadwear, and rolling resistance to meet a wide range of driving and weather conditions. The tires' internal structures include twin steel belts reinforced by Dunlop's Jointless Band (JLB) technology that uses spirally wound nylon to provide high-speed durability while it reduces weight and helps provide more uniform ride quality.
