Product description & features
The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 is a winter tyre designed to provide motorists with a reliable performance and enhance grip when tackling the unique difficulties faced on the road in freezing winter conditions.
To enhance the performance of the tyre on snow-covered roads Dunlop have designed the Winter Sport 5 an increased number of tread blocks to increase the number of edges that are come into contact with the road - providing superior traction.
In order to reduce the risk of the tyre aquaplaning, when the snow and ice begins to melt, Dunlop have constructed the tyre with deeper grooves and a special tread pattern that works to quickly remove large amounts of surface water from the path of the tyre.
What is an All Season tyre?
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year. Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip. Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres
How can I tell an All Season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake: This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed rigourous tests to prove it is suitable for driving in winter weather. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are All Season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from moderate and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they are able to cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer months and the winter months, the need to replace tyres depending on the seasons is not required when all season tyres are fitted.
