Excellent rain, snow and mud traction for winter conditions
The Dunlop SP LT 60 is a winter light truck tyre for excellent traction in wet and snowy conditions. The Dunlop SP LT 60 is a tyre with improved winter skills, without compromising on comfort. With the SP LT 60, Dunlop engineers have transferred their know-how from passenger car tyres to the transport and van tyres. The result is a directional tyre with special grip-blading, which allows better traction on snow, mud and wet while giving the comfort and silence of a passenger car tyre. The Dunlop SP LT 60 is a directional tire with special grip-blading, which allows better traction on snow, mud and wet while giving the comfort and silence of a passenger car tire.
A bladed centre section allows for confident grip on wet and snowy surfaces. Deep transverse grooves and an open shoulder design quickly disperse water and prevent aquaplaning.
Even wear of the tyre leading to longer mileage
Excellent traction in difficult conditions
High mileage potential
Excellent traction in difficult conditions. The Dunlop SP LT 60 features a tread pattern optimised for winter roads. A bladed center section allows for confident grip on wet and snowy surfaces. Deep transverse grooves and an open shoulder design quickly disperse water and prevent aquaplaning.
High mileage potential. The tread compound and tyre profile are designed for even wear, prolonging tyre life and enhancing load-carrying abilities.
Low noise. The SP LT 60 tread pattern is designed to reduce noise generation to a level comparable to passenger car tyres.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
