The Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT is installed as an original part in the Mercedes C63 AMG and C63 T.
The Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT is a tyre designed for demanding drivers, who value outstanding quality and uncompromising performance in any situation. The model is designed for fast sports cars and limousines with a high performance engine. The tyre's asymmetric tread pattern gives it excellent performance specifications on both wet and dry surfaces. The central rib improves driving precision, while the asymmetric layout of the grooves maintains grip even on very wet roads. This all means that cars that use the Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT perform exceptionally well and dynamically not only on straight roads but also on corners and during fast, precision manoeuvres. The smooth tread profile increases the contact area between the tyre and the road, ensuring excellent grip and increased steering precision.
The tyre comes with a rim protection system – a rubber border protecting the rim against damage, which means that drivers using Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT tyres do not have to worry about damage to the rim. The addition of silica compounds to the rubber used has increased acceleration and reduced rolling resistance, resulting in lower fuel consumption. The tyre has been designed for those who favour a sporty and dynamic style of driving, which is why the development of a well-balanced compound was a key issue when creating this model. Better control on corners, a fast response to steering movements and excellent performance on wet surfaces all mean that the Dunlop SP SportMaxx RT is ideal for drivers who enjoy a fast and sporty style of driving.
Dunlop's history stretches back to 1888 when John Dunlop founded and patented the first pneumatic tyre. The British brand is currently part of the Goodyear group, which manages brands such as: Fulda, Sava and Arrowspeed. Apart from the production of tyres for passenger cars, the company also releases 300,000 special tyres for racing cars each year.
