The Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical is an ultra high performance all season tire. The SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical is designed for sports cars, sports coupes, and sports sedans. The SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical provides high performance and all season capabilities on wet, dry, and in light snow. The SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical features asymmetrical or symmetrical tread designs, depending on the tire size and vehicle application, which provide different comfort, traction, and performance characteristics, in the different sizes. The Dunlop SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical has large interconnected shoulder blocks flanked by intermediate independent tread blocks which help to enhance dry traction and stability. They also enhance wet traction by dispersing water away from the contact patch of the tire, which improves wet weather traction, and also helps to prevent hydroplaning. Huge cross cut sipes are engineered to provide more biting edges for increased traction in snow and slush. Dunlop developed a new tread compound specifically for the SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical. The new compound blends treadwear, traction, and low rolling resistance to help improve its overall comfort and safety levels while driving. All SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical tire sizes feature all season tread compounds and provide comfort, traction, and handling in all weather conditions. The SP Sport 5000 Symmetrical is reinforced by Dunlop’s patented Jointless Band technology that provides durability and consistent ride quality.
