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 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.
