We put our tires through testing that measures everything from safety and road handling to noise and fuel efficiency

What matters to us?

Our customers matter to us. We want every driver on Dunlop tires to take confidence in their performance.

Our name matters to us. We want every product that carries the Dunlop brand to live up to the standards set by the founders of the company and adhered to over more than a century of innovation.

That’s why every new tire that we design goes through no less than 50 tough tests to assess key performance criteria.

These include:

• Wet handling • Wet braking • Dry handling • Dry braking • Cornering grip • Durability • Internal noise • External noise • Aquaplaning in curves • Aquaplaning on straights • Wet traction • Stability at high speed • Rolling resistance • Mileage

All our winter tires are tested for specific performance factors including:
