Dunlop Sport Maxx RT 2 SUV is a tyre adapted to the needs of our-wheel drive vehicles. It is a version of very the popular UHP model, produced by one of the best manufacturers in the world. Its excellent sporty parameters are combined with resistance to load, creating a unique product for 4WD cars.
This British manufacturer made a bold move, reducing the diameter and the shell to obtain the effect of closer tyre contact with the ground. This increased handling precision, allowing the car to maintain an undisturbed track, even at very high speeds. The effect is increased by a unique, flat tyre profile, which provides exceptional stability and lower wear of edges.
The model has an asymmetrical tread designed for dynamic driving. The continuous central rib was optimised to prevent deformation and loss of steering precision. Special seamless nylon bands prevent deformation in side zones, stabilising the behaviour of the sidewalls at high and smooth driving.
The advantages of this solution invented by Dunlop include multi-angle layout, which provides up to ten different radii to the tyre structure. The pressure is evenly distributed, providing more precise manoeuvring, gentle cornering and smooth acceleration. The special geometry of the individual components optimises the rigidity of the pads, providing shorter braking distance, especially at very high speeds.
Dunlop Sport Maxx RT 2 SUV is based on a rubber blend with a double dose of silica, to maintain full performance at high loads and high speeds. It wears slower, enabling longer operation, even on hot asphalt.
Dunlop is a British manufacturer of premium tyres. The company provided many groundbreaking inventions that changed the face of the modern automotive industry. John Boyd Dunlop, the brand founder, patented the world's first pneumatic tyre. Dunlop engineers were the first to define aquaplaning and to develop the first RunFlat tyres. The brand has a sporty DNA that is apparent in almost every project. It produces some of the best HP and UHP tyres in the world, designed for dynamic driving.
