Specialist drive axle tyre for use in on/off-road applications and construction
The SP 482 features latest technology compounds and materials in view of providing best mileage combined with excellent damage resistance and traction properties to mixed service fleet operators. The SP 482 has deep radial shoulder grooves which combined with the centreline rib allow for excellent traction characteristics and handling. The specific groove geometry is designed to minimise stone holding and to provide good self-cleaning properties.
The SP 482 features the unique TPL (Top Polyamide Layer) technology, a corrosion resistant polyamide barrier, which protects the high strength steel belts from penetration damage. In addition, the polyamide material prevents moisture from entering the carcass. Combined with the other protective features of the SP 482, the TPL technology significantly improves damage resistance and durability.

Excellent on- and off-road traction
Resistance to damage
The SP 482 is Dunlop’s specialist drive tyre for on and off-road applications and construction services.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
