Tyre of the month – Dunlop SP WinterSport 4D
With temperatures starting to drop, here at PTA we’re starting to think about switching to our winter tyres. This is why we’ve chosen an exceptional winter tyre as our tyre of the month this October, the Dunlop SP WinterSport 4D.
Dunlop are recognised worldwide as being a leading tyre manufacturer of high performance tyres and the SP WinterSport 4D maintains the high standards that Dunlop have set themselves.
Answering the difficult demands of winter driving, the SP WinterSport offers an exceptional performance throughout a range of tough, winter conditions. Recommended by Which? And Auto Bild, Germany’s leading automotive publication, the Dunlop SP WinterSport 4D has developed a reputation as a superior high performance tyre for winter.
The SP WinterSport 4D offers exceptional performance in varying winter conditions and can adapt to cope with snow, ice and wet. This is because it combines a unique tread design with a high grip compound and together these features offer optimal control on difficult winter surfaces. This high grip compound further benefits the tyre as it is optimised to deliver shorter braking distances on wet roads.
Thanks to its unique tread design, this tyre offers enhanced traction on snow and ice. This is because a high number of biting edges remain in contact with the road and deep snow notches cling to the road’s surface. This results in extra grip whilst accelerating, braking and climbing and ultimately results in greater levels of traction.
As well as snow and ice, wet roads are also an obstacle associated with winter driving. The SP WinterSport 4D has been designed to keep you in control when you are faced with wet conditions, which is why it has been designed with directional grooves. These grooves help to rapidly evacuate water from the tyre, resulting in a high resistance against aquaplaning.
