Dunlop SP Sport 8000

The SP Sport 8000 is ideal for high performance sports cars and sporty coupes. Like all summer tires, it is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

Its directional tread pattern offers all-out performance and handling, plus quiet ride comfort. To maximize wet handling confidence and resist hydroplaning the SP Sport 8000's wide circumferential grooves have been designed with nearly vertical "walls". This square shape maintains the tires outstanding wet road performance right up to the final stages of treadwear. To provide exceptional dry steering stability, the tread pattern has extremely rigid blocks. These rigid blocks greatly reduce tread squirm and distortion, offering a high degree of control during hard cornering. Minimizing irregular treadwear is also an important part of the design of the SP Sport 8000. A common problem with wide, low profile tires is uneven wear in the center of the tread. This problem is caused by unnecessary distortion of the tire's center and uneven contact pressure. The SP Sport 8000 features a tread surface formed around three continuous radii, so even contact pressure is obtained when the tread is fully loaded. Each size has been individually tuned for long, even treadwear.
