Dunlop SP Sport Maxx are premium summer tyres designed for high-power vehicles with a sporty and aggressive nature. They ensure the highest level of safety on dry and wet surfaces.
Its directional tread pattern with a wide central rib provides driving precision, short braking distance, effective acceleration and smooth manoeuvring. At the same time, it wears out slowly and evenly.
With Dunlop SP Sport Maxx, you may travel in comfort even at a high speed. A good driver-tyre communication gives you more time to feel the road and to react appropriately. Additionally, the stiff blocks located in the tread's shoulder section support dynamic driving at bends.
We should also highlight the technological solutions used in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx. The manufacturer introduced Multi Radius Tread (MRT) technology, which allows for an excellent performance both on dry and wet surfaces. Dunlop SP Sport Maxx tyres use the aptly named Twin Hydro Paddle, a pattern that reduces water whirls during drainage through the grooves.
Due to the fact that Dunlop SP Sport Maxx is designed for luxurious high-power sports cars, the tyre also offers high travelling comfort without noises generated during driving.
The rubber compound used in the model is based on a system of nanoparticles. When designing its composition, the manufacturer used solutions taken from motor sports. The effect is maximum grip and short braking distance during a dynamic drive.
It is worth mentioning that Dunlop is a British brand owned by Goodyear. For many years, they have been producing high-tech tyres using the experience gained on racecourses. Dunlop tyres have won the most titles in the legendary 24h Le Mans race. The effect is extremely high quality products with top performance.

Dunlop SP Sport MAXX is an expensive and widely advertised tyre. Personally, I had Michelin tyres before, which are poorly rated here. Maybe it is true, but in comparison, these Dunlop tyres are no better. Yes, they have a little bit better traction in the corners, I can enter them a bit faster, but it doesn't build emotions in me. Maybe they are better because have hardly worn. But, the fact is, they don't squeal during sudden and sharp maneuvers, they only hum a bit. It's definitely easier to take and keep your driving track - but I was expecting something I could feel more! And I'm sure the car not has larger rolling resistance! Driveability is decent but my previous tyres gave me a better feeling of the handling. I didn't drive much on wet surfaces so I won't rate it yet. But I get the impression that they do not differ much from average tyres in their class. But I know one thing - I expected better performance for such a price. Therefore, I would like to give a bit of advie to those who consider getting Dunlop SP Sport MAXX tyres - think of a cheaper offer and the result will be similar. Maybe Dunlop SP Sport MAXX is a little better, but how many times we drive our cars on the edge to fell such a difference? This tyre manifests its advantages only in extreme conditions! So even if you drive with a bit of sports style - it doesn't meet the expectations. I regret that I spent so much money 150 pounds per tyre). I'm sure I'd get the same effect by buing them somewhere else...
I was looking for reviews of Dunlop SP Sport MAXX before buying myself, so I feel oibliged to write something about these tyres. I rate them very well. I have a Volvo S60 D5 - 163HP and 340Nm which weighs almost 1500 kgs. The car performed really well on these tyres, grips the road nicely and allows to do much. It allows to take the corners fast, without any unexpected and unpleasant slides, the driver can feel the stability of the car. In addition to normal driving, it allows for "some craziness", it even "encourages" you to drive fast. On dry, the tyre is sensational (grips like glue) when it comes to performance on wet, I've always been happy with it and I rate it very well. It disperses water well - I never had a problem with the stability of the car when driving over the puddles. The tyres are very quiet at the same time. When it comes to wear, they wear evenly and a bit more than average (harder) counterparts of other brands. But Dunlop SP Sport MAXX are virtually sports tyres which are to provide great traction and this is normal. Generally speaking, signs of wear are visible after every season, but it's not tragic. I did about 20 000 miles on my set.
I bought Dunlop SP Sport MAXX tyres for 2008 summer season and did ca. 20 000 miles. The tyres were used in an aggressive way, their grip on dry and wet is OK, they also have good traction in the corners and during starting and braking. They quickly wore out on the front, but I presume it's because of my driving style. The same happened to my previous two sets of tyres, the only thing that worried and cost me a bit was some side damage (due to which I had to dispose of two tyres) - one time on some bottle remains, second time agaist the curb. I did some mileage in my life and I had a lot of tyre sets, but this was the first time I had such bad luck. I recommend Dunlop SP Sport MAXX to those who have already had similar tyres. I get new tyres every season and always change the type of tyres, but always buy High Performance ones. The manufacturer is not important, every tyre has its pros and cons, you need to check out all of them to have some comparison and to be sure not to roll slowly on the road - because then all the tyres are good and there is nothing to overpay for, the differences come out in strange or extreme situations.
I am very disappointed with Dunlop SP Sport MAXX tyres, even if they are from a very good manufacturer (I am very pleased with their motorcycle tyres). Their advantages are definitely their decent price and good visual look. They grip pretty well on dry, but they are not revolutionary. Their great disadvantage is their bruising during stoppage - it's almost impossible to describe what's going on with this tyre. When I started the car after a few days of rest, I had to stop the car en route to check what's going on, as the vibrations were totally unbearable. It is bearable at a short distance, eg. 30 miles, but it's Dunlop and not a Korean tyre after all. Total disaster. What is more, Dunlop SP Sport MAXX are quite loud, louder then Continental winter tyres... After 25 thousand miles they're completely worn out, the tred wear index is on the same level as the tread. On wet surface they barely grip the road, and aquaplaning in the rain at speeds above 80 MPH is horrendous. Overall, Dunlop SP Sport MAXX are miserable products and made me stay away from Dunlop for at least a few years.
Dunlop SP Sport MAXX are sharp and reliable tyres. During starting, it's difficult to turn on ASR on dry surface, and braking is so sharp you almost hit the wheel. On wet they slightly slide but the signal it with a characteristic noise - and I'm talking here about driving on the race track, because I couldn't make them slide on any typical paved road or in the corner, only on the inner side of the roundabout. Unfortunately, Dunlop SP Sport MAXX is not a purchase for those who like to save money - their rubber compound and the fact that the stripe with "Dunlop SP Sport MAXX" , worn out quite fast may mean I won't make 40 thousand miles on those despite the fact that I drive carefully and don't like to overdo the brakes - but something for something. When it comes to noise level, they have a good standard - on a typical road they hum a but above 80 MPH, but it's normal, and on the motorway with new pavement, they just give a gentle hum at 110 MPH - they are very quiet.
