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

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
Product is completely awesome! Some of the best street tires out there and good on the track. June 14, 2016
Flippin Awesome! Love these Tires! so far i've put 300 miles on them, I haven't road in the rain yet besides that these tires grip really good, it's like they were designed for cornering ;) June 12, 2016
Great Tire Tire came stock On my Honda 650F. Unfortunately with only 4500 miles on them I picked up a piece of road debris and got a major flat was able to put a plug in it and get it back home. I immediately ordered another tire just like it because It has handled the high speed turns and wet conditions very well at 4500 miles it still looks like its hardly worn. Now I live in northeast Virginia and we don't have a lot of knee down style turns but I have every confidence in the world that this tire will not let me done due to normal wear and tear.

Best street tire for aggressive riding The Dunlop q3's are exceptional tires, they are the only tires I will ever buy. Grip for days! Confidence inspiring. They feel very consistent and predictable. I haven't ridden much in the rain, but have ridden on wet roads, and I never felt like the tires were slipping. However, I ride extremely cautiously in wet conditions. Tread life is very good for a hypersport tire. Their will always be a trade off between performance and treadlife. I think Dunlop found the perfect balance between performance and treadlife on the Q3. May 31, 2016
Great Tire I love the Q3's. I commute on my CBR1000rr and hit the canyons in Southern California at least once a month. They're predictable and easy riding for the commute and they grip and inspire a lot of confidence in the canyons. They don't last very long, but with the right pressure and careful riding, you could probably get about 4K out of them. I love the Q3's. Highly recommended. Also, for the 2012 CBR1000rr, I recommend going with a 55 sidewall instead of the 50. Gives it a little more aggressive feel/ balance. May 31, 2016
Best tires! These tires are the best I've owned so far!! They heat up quick and have amazing grip! May 25, 2016
Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Rear Tire Wet traction is better than i was expecting. Dry as a new tire it needed < 50 miles before it developed its edge hold. This is one sticky tire and when i wear it out I'll buy another one just like it!!! May 24, 2016
