Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Rear 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 Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel. IRP provides a larger, more consistent contact patch as you lean into corners, as well as linear steering and handling at various lean angles. IRP tires also offer phenomenal steering and handling characteristics thanks to a taller profile along with sides that taper in more aggressively. 

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 Dunlop Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance
  • Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering
  • MT Multi-Tread™ technology in the rear tire uses a tough, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for excellent traction and longer tread life, plus special lateral grip compounds for outstanding grip
  • Dunlop tires with MT technology incorporate a tough, cool-running long-wearing compound in the center of the tread to provide enhanced straight-line stability and excellent traction under acceleration, plus long tread life
  • 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 Dunlop Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires

Dunlop Q3 Sportmax Rear Tires 4.9 5 198 198
Great tire! I do a tin of riding from freeway to twisties and the Q3 HOOKS in the corner. If anyone has ever said it doesn't slip, lies because I have had mine slightly break free BUT that's pushing super hard. Mileage is a little on the low side as far as straight riding. Only about 2500 miles on it and at about 50% tread. Wet or cold traction is terrible. Lol August 2, 2016
Sticky tires, good deal I always buy Dunlop Q3s and they have not failed me on track or on the street. Great tires! July 28, 2016
Awesome tire This is the second tire I've bought and it will probably be all I've bought. Good price, sticky, it lasted twice as long as the Dunlop it rolled off the floor with. As far as wet grip I didn't rate higher only because I don't like to ride aggressively when it rains so I couldn't tell how well it works. Great tire, I will buy more. Also the most recent tire I just bought somehow got a hole right in the center with 300 miles on it. I had to plug it, and it still is running perfectly fine July 26, 2016
Tires, none better than these If you're looking for tires that stick well and last long, then go with these tires. They are great for the price. July 23, 2016
Makes a huge difference You can actually feel the difference with these tires versus the competition. Gives me the confidence i need on the leans and turns. July 14, 2016
Love them I have a cbr 954 and I like to play have had lots of play time on those tiers got both front and back and have not let me down I would recommend July 13, 2016
Great handling American tire I wanted to replace my OEM Dunlop tires on my 2001 Victory V92SC Sport Cruiser. Not only did I find a suitable replacement, Dunlop has a $40 rebate. These tires have a new tread design that does a great job of channeling water. The tire was designed for track and road. I doubt I'll be riding on a track but these tires really grip the road and do well on rough surfaces. I'm still breaking them in but so far, I feel the ride is more stable on bumpy uneven streets of NYC. A lot of bang for the buck and American like my bike. July 5, 2016
Sportmax Redux It had been a while since my Ducati's left my garage and the rear on my recently purchased Kawasaki was not giving me the confidence I wanted. Had many good miles on Dunlops in the past; saw the price of the Q3 and snapped it up. Great tire with impressive grip. Hoping for good tread life - most reviews speak positively. June 21, 2016
