The SP Sport Maxx GT is Dunlop’s Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of pure sports cars, powerful coupes and high performance sedans. SP Sport Maxx GT tires are designed to offer outstanding driver feedback and responsive handling, but like all summer tires are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The SP Sport Maxx GT uses a highly refined carbon black tread compound technology from Dunlop Motorsport molded into an asymmetric tread design featuring firm tread blocks and a continuous middle rib. These features work together to keep more of the tire on more of the road more of the time, maintaining constant road contact to impart more responsive handling and high-speed stability. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by Dunlop’s Hybrid Jointless Band (JLB) spirally wrapped Aramid to provide high-speed durability while minimizing weight and reducing temporary flatspotting. The tires feature a rayon cord casing and unique bead to enhance high-speed capability and ride quality.
Limited sizes of the SP Sport MAXX GT are available with Dunlop’s Noise Shield Technology, which involves the manufacturer adhering a layer of sound-absorbing foam to the inner liner of the tire to reduce cabin noise in the vehicle. These sizes are identified on the Specs page and in the search results.
