Dunlop Winter Maxx

Hot

The Dunlop Winter Maxx tires provide enhanced traction. This model differs from its predecessor (the Dunlop DSX-2 model) by reducing the braking distance on ice by 11% (with a noticeable improvement in handling) due to the maximum use of modern materials and technologies. This studless winter tire is the most popular in the Dunlop range.

The Dunlop Winter Maxx features an asymmetrical, completely new tread pattern. The use of the latest technology in the manufacture of this tire allowed for the application of thinner sipes, which provided a larger opening area and improved braking performance.

The production of a completely new, special rubber compound with a high silicon content was carried out using the 4D-Nano-Design technology. This ensured the preservation of the properties of the tire for a wider range of temperatures, including negative ones.

On a winter road, stability and controllability are ensured by means of the shoulder tread blocks with an original shape. This model has the best balance of all basic qualities, which makes this tire optimal for driving in winter and on bare ice or ice, as well as on loose or packed snow or slush.

Main features of the Dunlop Winter Maxx tire

- Reinforced grip, shortening the braking distance and increasing driving stability and handling, even on bare ice;

- the use of 4D-Nano-Design technology for the manufacture of a rubber compound that has a high silicon content, and therefore retains its properties in an extended temperature range;

- asymmetrical tread pattern with thin sipes for improved braking performance;

- the original shape of the shoulder sides of the tread, increasing controllability and stability;

- a wide range of standard sizes, including rare ones.

Material development at the molecular level

The softener surrounding the silica acts as a "cushion", increasing the elasticity of the rubber compound at the molecular level.

Improved grip with the snow surface

  • Under load, the groove is compressed
  • Release of pressure returns the groove to its original shape

Asymmetric stiffness of the tread

Asymmetric tread stiffness for stability when cornering and changing lanes. Increased belt rigidity.

Strength modeling of the tread blocks

The increased concentration of silica forms a strong structure of the material, preventing the deformation of the blocks.

Technologies

Improved grip on icy surfaces.

Longer lamellas with sharper edges. Durable tread blocks material that prevents them from breaking.

Handling on snowy and wet surfaces.

Creation of diamond-shaped transverse grooves with a self-cleaning effect. Effective moisture removal due to longitudinal and zigzag grooves of the tread.

Management stability.

Asymmetric tread stiffness for stability when cornering and changing lanes. Increased belt rigidity.

Well per year I drive maximum 10k miles, in conclusion a set of tires last me like 4-5 years and I figured out what dunlops became stiff with time, but winter performance is well enough.

Not bad winter tires, snow ice and slushy is good, but feels a bit stiff for me, I like comfort Wich can't get from these, agresive tread make some noise.

These feels a bit stiff on bad roads, but grip and handling are great, goes on snow stable and safe even corners in snow conditions are good!
