High mileage steer tyre providing excellent grip and damage resistance in mixed service use
For excellent damage resistance and grip on and off the road, the SP 382 is Dunlop’s mixed service steer tyre.
- Excellent wet and off-road traction
- Resistant to damage
- High mileage potential
- Excellent durability and retreadability
- Optimum traction combined to excellent wet skid performance
- High mileage performance and excellent damage resistance
- Optimum damage resistance
The new SP 382 mixed service steer tyre is specifically designed to suit today’s ‘mixed service’ fleet operators. Two design versions are available, the 4-rib version for standard aspect ratio sizes and the 5-rib version for low aspect ratio sizes. The SP 382 provides optimum mileage while featuring an excellent damage resistant construction and pattern. Traction on wet and unpaved roads as well as a robust tread design are the main features of this tyre.
The SP 382 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 382, the TPL technology significantly improves damage resistance and durability.
As all Dunlop truck tyres, SP 382 tyres are regroovable and retreadable to allow further improvement to your fleet efficiency.
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.
