Dunlop Sport BluResponse


The Dunlop Sport BluResponse is an ultra-high performance summer tire introduced in 2012, designed to deliver exceptional handling, fuel efficiency, and durability. Replacing the Dunlop SP Sport FastResponse, this model is crafted for a broad spectrum of passenger cars and is recommended in numerous tire tests. It's available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate various vehicles and driving needs.

Features & Benefits

  • Excellent Wet Performance: Features an asymmetrical tread pattern and a special rubber compound that enhances grip on wet surfaces. The high-performance drainage system with large longitudinal and transverse grooves significantly reduces the risk of hydroplaning.
  • Short Braking Distances: Improved braking performance over its predecessor due to increased shoulder blocks that provide additional traction edges for more effective braking.
  • Exceptional Fuel Efficiency: Rolling resistance is reduced by 30% compared to the previous model, achieved through aerodynamic tire shape and materials that minimize heat generation during driving.
  • Low Noise Level: The tire design incorporates closed shoulder grooves and a multi-step arrangement of tread elements to significantly reduce noise, enhancing riding comfort.
