Dunlop Winter Sport 5 SUV features
The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 SUV has been designed as a well-balanced tyre. Its stand-out benefits include excellent lateral grip on slippery surfaces (good cornering), better drivability on snow (efficient moving off, short braking distances), resistance to aquaplaning and lower fuel consumption.
These can all be attributed to the sophisticated technological solutions used in this tyre. The V-shaped directional tread pattern, combined with a system of different blade types, creates a complex network of channels. The varied design of the grooves improves the tyre's hold on snow, as well as meaning that water and slush are dispersed more quickly and grip is increased. The vehicle therefore offers superior drivability on slippery surfaces.
The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 SUV tyre also has a special bead seat system, which strengthens the link between the tyre and the rim for better road feedback and a more precise driving experience (thanks to a more secure grip). The tyre also features a seamless nylon belt. This is a hybrid carcass technology, or in other words a layer that reduces deformation of the tyre circumference at high speeds, resulting in greater vehicle stability and more even wear of the tyre.
The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 SUV tyre features a flat tread profile, which increases the area of contact between the tyre and the road surface. This improves the tyre's sensitivity to driver movements, ensuring that the vehicle offers excellent drivability on dry surfaces. Road feedback is also improved by a multi-angle tread with 10 different patterns. This allows for a balanced distribution of pressure within the tyre, which in turn improves cornering performance.
A state-of-the art rubber compound is a must for premium-range tyres. The compound used in this particular case resembles that used for sports tyres, while taking into account the specific needs of "civilian" vehicles. It improves grip at low temperatures and protects against accelerated wear.
Dunlop is a tyre brand belonging to the Goodyear Group. For over 100 years it has specialised in manufacturing tyres for dynamic drivers looking for the highest levels of tyre performances. Dunlop tyres are very highly rated in tests and very popular among drivers.
