Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 provides handling and performance to leading OEM

Ultra-High Performance tire provides enhanced road feedback and steering precision1 for drivers looking for an exciting ride.

Dunlop is pleased to announce a new fitment on the Mini Clubman. The latest model of the six-door vehicle will come fitted with the new Dunlop Ultra-High Performance (UHP) summer tire, the Sport Maxx RT2* in size 225/45R17 94W XL. This tire is marked with a * to indicate that it is approved by Mini as Original Equipment on its vehicles.

Staying true to Dunlop’s DNA, the tire has been developed with the “Forever Forward” brand philosophy in mind, aimed at creating exciting driving experiences. Dunlop’s long racing heritage, including victories in numerous open endurance competitions, has been a great source of inspiration while developing the new Sport Maxx RT2. The tire provides expert levels of grip and steering precision, making it a good choice for drivers in search of an exciting ride.

Matched with the new Mini Clubman, Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2* is set to maintain grip and performance in both wet and dry conditions, enhancing driving pleasure in a wide variety of situations, without any compromises in the quality of driving experience. These results can be attributed to the Evolutionary Tread compound, providing enhanced grip and steering precision [1].

Nick Harley, Goodyear Dunlop’s Managing Director for Original Equipment, Consumer Tires EMEA, comments: “We are excited to be chosen by Mini for this trendy and unconventional vehicle. Our Dunlop Sport Maxx RT2 is the perfect fit for a car that combines everyday practicality with driving pleasure”.
