The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx RT is a summer tyre which borrows from Dunlop's extensive knowledge in producing race tyres to provide you with motorsport level grip and braking.

Dunlop have designed the SP Sport Maxx RT with intuitive compound technology that adapts to the conditions to deliver safe and responsive grip in both wet and dry conditions. The compound of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx RT features polymers that conform to the contours of the road - helping to maximise the contact between the tyre and road, increasing the tyre's levels of grip.

Around the shoulder of the tyre Dunlop have contructed 'Short Braking' blocks to ensure shorter braking distances when you are travelling at high speeds. When braking these blocks increase to allow more of the tyre to come into contact with the road.

Keen to deliver a fuel efficient design, Dunlop have ensured the tyre is made with a lightweight construction - reducing the rolling resistance of the tyre and in turn the CO2 emissions when driving.

Customer Comments

  • I bought a full set of these for my Mazda RX-8. I'll compare them to tires I've used before, the falken azenis and khumo ecsta. Handling wise they are definably a improvement over the falken's, these caused a kind of dead spot when the steering was pointed straight ahead, this made the car feel slightly twitchy, with these Dunlops I don't get any of that and steering feel and responsiveness has also improved. Comfort has improved quite a lot, for one thing these tires are very quiet, I can usually hear the heater fan above the road noise now, they are also much smoother than previous tires making for a much nicer ride especially over the khumos which gave a rather harsh ride and on certain road surfaces the noise was unbearable. I have also noticed a slight improvement to fuel economy its probably using about 1/7 maybe 1/6 less fuel, this is great as the RX-8 does like to drink so any improvement is great. I can't comment on wear as I don't really drive the RX8 enough miles to wear the
