Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D ROF
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Winter weather traction
- Hydroplaning resistance
- Enhanced braking ability
- Precise steering responsiveness
- Reduced road vibrations
The Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D ROF is a run flat winter tire manufactured for passenger vehicles.
The tire offers excellent winter weather traction. It has received the three mountain peak and snowflake symbol that is given to tires capable of handling the harshest winter weather. The 4D siping design of the V-shaped grooves and the deep snow notches and the silica-plus tread compound boost the tires snow and ice traction. The 4D siping design maintains firm grip on all snow and ice-covered roads. The V-shaped tread grooves and deep snow notches enhance the hydroplaning resistance by dispersing water and slush from below the tire footprint, making the driving safer in all winter conditions.
The tires 4D siping system improves the braking and acceleration ability and the tires handling as well. It increases the number of the sipes located on the tires shoulder which ensures better road grip. This allows a shortened braking ability in colder temperatures and on ice-covered roads. Thanks to the siping design, the tire creates road grip on all surfaces, which shortens the braking distance and boost the accelerations. The self-interlocking sipes stiffen the tread area, which improves the steering responsiveness and driving stability. The tire is stabilized against the driving forces and its steering becomes quicker and more accurate. The better road contact ensures a more secure driving experience.
The model is a run flat tire, which means that its reinforced sidewalls are capable of supporting the weight of the vehicle and the passengers after the loss of air pressure for a limited time. Basically, the tire can be driven on for 50 miles up to the speed of 50 mph in case of air pressure loss due to a puncture or other damage. This allows the driver to safely arrive at the nearest location where they can change or repair the damaged tire. These tires are not meant to be mixed with regular tires, as their reinforcement makes the construction much heavier. Run flat tires are manufactured for vehicles that have no space for spare tires.
The SP Winter Sport 4D ROF offers a comfortable driving experience in all winter weather. The internal structure features twin steel belts and the Jointless Band Technology that places a spirally wrapped nylon cord on top of the steel belts. This maintains the tires optimal shape and prevents deformation during the drive. As a result, the tire is capable of following the road surface closely, which lowers the road vibrations being felt in the vehicles cabin, making the drive more enjoyable.
