Dunlop Winter Sport 5



Manufacturer's description

The grip you need for unforeseen winter roads.

  • Supreme lateral grip on slippery surfaces
  • Enhanced performance on snow-covered roads
  • Aquaplaning defense
  • Fuel effciency

Notable Features

Dunlop Winter Sport 5 is the long-awaited model 2015. It is a directional non-studdable High Performance tire designed to be used in the mild winter conditions of Central Europe. This sports model ensures dependable grip, stable and crisp steering response on slippery winter surfaces, as well as excellent braking performance and fuel efficiency

The Dunlop Winter Sport 5 came to replace the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D, considerably improving on the performance of its predecessor: the engineers were able to “pull up” lateral ice grip by 10%, ice braking by 15%, and fuel efficiency also by 10%. The tread design of Winter Sport 5 Furthermore, the European tire Winter Sport 5 (WS5) demonstrates better grip on wet pavement, which is quite a factor during a typical mild winter, also surpassing its predecessor in snow traction and snow braking. The tread sipes At the same time, however, on dry pavement the two models demonstrate approximately the same results. The SP Winter Sport 5 drainage system The directional tread pattern of the Winter Sport 5 model has a larger number of siped blocks, which ensure better grip and traction on winter roads. Directional design of the siped blocks The sipes in the central section of the tread are now parallel to the edges of the side blocks. The circumferential drainage grooves became 6-10% deeper, which serves to increase hydroplaning resistance. The Winter Sport 5D carcass construction

In addition, the optimized carcass reduced the weight of the Dunlop Winter Sport 5 tire, resulting in lower rolling resistance and improved fuel efficiency for this winter friction model.

UPD. Since 2017, five sizes of this tire model have been manufactured with the use of Noise Shield technology: 225/50 R17 98H XL, 225/50 R17 98V XL, 245/45 R17 99V XL, 245/45 R18 100V XL, and 245/40 R18 97V XL.

I bought these tires after reading a lot of reviews. Having previously had winter tires from this manufacturer, DUNLOP Winter Sport M3 on a BMW 5, I was not disappointed again, despite driving only 4800 km (including about 700 km on an icy and slightly snow-covered surface), my opinion is absolutely positive. If you need tires for variable winter conditions that occur in our country, you will be satisfied and safe in your car, bearing in mind that the tires are the only link between your car and the road on which you are currently driving.

I can honestly recommend the tires. They provide easy starting in fresh snow, confident driving on slush or fine snow dust blown onto the road. The most important challenge, however, was the slippery path to the garage - many cars slipped and "sawed" in place, and I climbed slowly and calmly on Dunlop tires. They give a sense of security in all conditions, and in the end it is probably the most important thing.
