Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Front Tires

The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is the next-generation sport bike tire and successor to Dunlop's popular Q2 tire, featuring Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) which incorporates carbon fiber reinforcements into the sidewall. The Dunlop Q3 Sportmax also features an updated tread pattern with longer grooves to better evacuate water which helps wet weather performance and rear tires boast Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel.

The new Sportmax Q3 represents yet another direct benefit yielded from Dunlop’s AMA Pro Road Racing involvement. As the control tire supplier for AMA Pro Road Racing, Dunlop invested in new tire-producing machinery necessary to accommodate race tire production at Dunlop’s Buffalo, NY, manufacturing facility. These same high-tech machines are used to produce the all-new Q3 rear tire.


  • Dunlop’s Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel
  • Aggressive new Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance
  • New Q3 tire compounds were derived from road-race compounds to yield maximum sportbike performance
  • The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track
  • Designed, tested and manufactured in America, the Sportmax Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires

Great tire! Rode this tire on both the street and the track and may I say one of the best tires I have ever had on any bike I have owned! They are sticky sticky sticky! I rode these tires on the street for about 300 miles getting into some corners ect perfect good to go! Now the real test took them to jennings GP in north Florida! I run roughly 1:30's at that track and OMG perfection! These tires were just as sticky as any other track tire I have ever gone out on. So I rode them for both days at the track weekend then when I got home and we unloaded the trailer I rode the bike home! It was amazing after 2 track days still plenty of tire left great tires will buy these until q4's come out lol March 9, 2015
love these tires I've always ran dunlopsand I absolutely love them. February 23, 2015
very good tire Tire is great has lasted quit awhile. Very fast shipping February 20, 2015
Bang for the buck! This was a great value for a tire! Arrived fast!!! February 2, 2015
America's Best Tire First I support Dunlop because they are 100% American made! These tires by far are the best I've ever used. Grip is like no other and is confidence inspiring. Tread is exceptionally good for a sport tire 5K+ miles on rear and 10K+ on front. If that doesn't tell you too buy these tires the price should. These will be the only tires I'll be buying. I ride a 2013 Suzuki GSXR 600 and bought brand new 8 months ago and I've already put over 10K miles on my bike. December 27, 2014
It works hard for the money. From the 318 turns in 11 miles at the Dragon on Hwy 129, to the 3 hour highway ride in from anywhere, the Dunlop Q3 is a very good tire for the money. It is sticker than the stock Dunlop Sportmax that came on the R1, and insures rider confidence 10 fold compared to the stock rubber. It heats quickly, isn't bad in the cold, and does very well in the heat or the rain. Overall it's a good tire and for the money, I'd highly recommend it. December 15, 2014
heavy too heavy a tire to counter the cheap price, affects handling too much November 24, 2014
Dunlop Q3 works GREAT! For my R1 riding style the Dunlop Q3 delivers excellent performance and reliable grip in the corners, every time! September 29, 2014

felipe b: this?
"I've been riding on Q2s for the past couple of years and they have very good handling capabilities. I am guessing that the next generation is equally is good or better. Down side with the Q2s is that they do wear down rather quickly in comparison to harder tires. I'd rather spend a bit more than take a

Ronald L: Good review Apr 29, 2014
Kenneth H: Price & Reviews Apr 29, 2014
Nathan W: Needed replacement for my Q2's. Liked them so much, couldn't imagine the Q3 being worse. They rock, super grip out of the box. Fast break in, have 1000 miles thus far, very happy, fast turn-in. Probably will not provide huge mileage, as they are more race/track specific tires, but with low price, can afford to use as primary tire for all I do on my Ducati. Apr 24, 2014
