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.
