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.
Dunlop's technology advancements help our tyres provide grip, handling and the driving excitement you deserve. Dunlop tyres are made using different rubber compounds that contribute distinct properties to the tyre.
Professional inspectors and specialty machines inspect each tyre to ensure every one is the highest quality.
- All-weather tread design that helps deliver year-round traction and enhanced wet handling
- Circumferential tread grooves help pump water away from the footprint for excellent wet traction
- 5-Pitch Technology™ aids noise reduction for a quiet ride
