Dunlop produces one of the most extensive ranges of tyres, and since its highly innovative beginnings, has grown to be one the world's best known tyre brands. The brand is once again at the cutting edge of tyre technology and as a result Dunlop tyres are fitted as standard by many of the world's leading car manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Lexus and Honda.

Dunlop touch technologies include asymmetric tread design with improved performance in both a straight line and around corners and a flatter tread profile which increases stability and steering precision, excellent cornering stability and precision dry grip. Multi Radius Tread and Multi Blade Systems ensure outstanding dry and wet handling and more control when cornering.

History of Dunlop
From the start Dunlop set out to deliver a better driving experience for drivers and a better riding experience for riders. In 1888 Dunlop's founder, John Boyd Dunlop, came up with the idea of wrapping his son's tricycle wheels in thin rubber sheets, gluing them together and inflating them with a football pump, after watching his son ride uncomfortably over cobbled ground. This invention was to become the first air cushioning system in history and laid the foundations for the first pneumatic tyre. Dunlop quickly patented this and started to develop his invention into a commercial venture, which became known as the Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co. Ltd. In 1893 Dunlop sold his first tyre in Germany and by 1895 Dunlop tyres were being sold across Europe. This began the story of Dunlop tyres. Today the Dunlop continues to be at the forefront of development with dedicated technicians and designers who are committed to share their expertise so that Dunlop can continue to supply exceptional performance tyres.
