Dunlop announces new all-season touring performance tire
Akron, Ohio – Dunlop has announced the new Dunlop SP Sport Signature performance tire, a new all-season touring performance tire that combines the wet-road gripping power of the company’s Hydro-Paddles with a new dry performance sector for cornering.
The tire is a cousin to the brand’s family-car Signature brand, and is available in several high-performance speed ratings and sizes. The company says the SP Sport Signature helps provide up to 8.5 per cent better wet handling, compared with its Dunlop SP Sport A2 Plus, along with a 4.3 per cent improvement in dry handling, and up to 13.7 per cent in improved subjective handling. The tire carries the highest “AA” traction-grading label.
The SP Sport Signature comes with roadside assistance for two years after purchase in Canada and the U.S.
