High Performance Summer

Overall Rating (10.0)

The SP Sport Maxx TT (Touch Technology) is Dunlop's Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, sporty coupes and high performance sedans. Dunlop Touch Technology combines sophisticated tire development and manufacturing techniques to enhance road feedback and driving precision. Like all summer tires, the SP Sport Maxx TT is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The SP Sport Maxx TT uses a motorsport-inspired tread rubber compound molded into an asymmetric design that fine-tunes the rubber contact with the road to blend dry road responsiveness with wet road grip. Dunlop Multi-Radius-Tread Technology distributes footprint pressure effectively across the tire and allows the footprint shape to change more smoothly as it moves from a straight to a curve, leading to better control and more precise driving. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by Dunlop's JointLess Band (JLB) spirally wound Polyamide cord to provide high-speed durability and enhance ride uniformity. Kevlar® fiber is encased in the bead area's reinforcing rubber to create a firmer sidewall with a tighter connection between the tire and rim to increase stability when cornering, as well as enhance performance when accelerating or braking.

Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TT tires feature an attractive sidewall design of black letters reversed out of a stylized serrated band and include Dunlop's Max Flange Shield rim protector rib on all sizes to help protect wheels from accidental curb damage.
