Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
By combining very innovative materials such as Kevlar® in the apex and a new nanoparticle rubber compound with the Touch Technology characteristics, the new Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TT gives a very high level of performance.
Exceptional feel thanks to the Kevlar®.
Excellent roadholding on dry and wet surfaces.
Improved cornering stability and driving precision thanks to the flatter profile.
The ground contact area is bigger and squarer.
Improved braking on wet and dry surfaces.
Patented anti-aquaplaning system.
