A leading manufacturer of passenger, sport, performance, truck and SUV tyres.
Dunlop are not at the forefront of winter tyres development.
The product is probably as good as any other tyre manufacturers winter tyres but, the are not very well published, at least not in the Yorkshire area of the UK.
I will however do my next winter tyre article about the Dunlop winter tyres product because it is something that i have sold all my life.
Dunlop winter tyres
I think that it must be a nationwide thing. Now that the drivers in the UK are switching to safer tyres in winter time. It has taken a few years to sink in. But all the hard work that the tyre industry has put into the cause is now paying off and as a result Britain’s roads will be a safer place to drive on this winter.
The other countries in the EU have been way ahead of us in the past. Even passing national laws to make drivers fit winter tyres. This move was led by the Germans and quickly spread to other European countries. I know that the islands that make up the UK have a maritime climate. But I am convinced that the weather is now going through a colder stage, making our winters more unpredictable.
We can have cold and snowy weather at any time between November and the following March and so it is best to be well prepared and make sure that your car is also well prepared by fitting winter tyres.
Dunlop Winter Tyres; catching up with winter tyre development
As regular readers of my blogs will know. I used to work for Dunlop many years ago. Thus I have a soft spot for the one time giant tyre company. Dunlop rally tyres were once one of the favorites. The tyres were fitted on rallies all over the country. The winter tyre market has helped the development, from the trials and tribulations of rallying, learning many things, such as tread design along the way.
Dunlop tyres seemed to fall behind in my opinion and the other great tyre companies led by Michelin moved ahead in the winter tyre market place, developing a large string of great winter tyre products.

However Dunlop now appears to be catching up with their latest winter tyres the Winterport D4 and D3 and the M3 and the Winter-response tyres. These four winter tyres will cover the range of different performing cars in the market place. From your regular road cars, to the large sedans from Germany, such as the BMW’s and Mercedes.
Dunlop also uses the latest silica compounds and multi sipes to dissipate the slush and water that the winter will throw at them. The new Dunlop’s look a good product to me and will fit into the already huge winter tyre market.
