Dunlop Announces New Sizes in Sport Maxx Range

A year on from the launch of the company’s Sport Maxx TT range, featuring Kevlar in its construction, Dunlop has unveiled an extended range of sizes that make it possible to apply this acclaimed technology to a wider range of performance cars.

It is now available in 21 significant new sizes ranging from 195/40R17 to 245/45R18, adding to the 20 popular sizes available at launch.

The tyre uses DuPont Kevlar in the complete apex of the tyre. Adding this advanced material creates a stiffer sidewall, which becomes more resistant to torsion, tension and heat and guarantees increased stability during cornering, as well as enhanced road feedback and more precision in performance driving.

Dunlop says that the tyre “provides enhanced and improved quality of road feedback, improved wet and dry handling and mileage performance, as well as enhanced cornering and high-speed stability to offer driving enthusiasts the ultimate in driving precision.” The tyre received five stars in a test feature by Track and Race Cars magazine.
