The interior sound is reduced up to 50%

No compromises on performance competence


Specific Bead Beat System

In this system, the bond between rim and tyre is strengthened to provide an utmost control, accurate driving experience and excellent road feedback.


Benefits


Improved road feedback

More accuracy and steadiness


Hybrid Overlay Technology

In this technology, the jointless nylon bondage with zero per cent layer guarantees minimised deformation in circumferences at high speeds.


Benefits:


  • Increased high-speed stability

  • Incredible wear resistance

  • Soft wear


RunOnFlat Tyres

Dunlop RunOnFlat tyre technology allows drivers to continue their drive up to 50 miles even with a puncture to reach their destination.
