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 4.8 5 161 161
Dunlop Q3s are the best road tires hands down. My last pair of Q3s lasted two years and 9000 miles. That was on my GSXR 750. January 21, 2016
love em We took a trip down to the tail of the dragon and after a few passes it started to rain. I slowed a bit but dammed if these tires didn't hold. A few times I got a little aggressive on the throttle and they slipped but only a little and it was very manageable. I have done a lot of twisty riding and plenty of straight line riding and I can get about 5k miles out of them or so. In the dry, I went into a corner too hot and trusted the tires..I leaned hard..way harder than I normally do and they just stuck. I can't say enough good stuff about these tires. January 12, 2016
Great tires!!! Great tires for the buck. A very reliable set of tires and I half to admit that I was skeptical about the carbor fiber being in the tires but these proved to be phenomenal in every aspect. Great grip and longevity. These tires lasted 7,000 miles on my 2002 Honda CBR954rr. Great tires don't miss out. November 20, 2015
Great handling These tires have great handling. They lean so well. Much better than stock. If these are your first set of tires after changing stock, don't be scared when you first feel it LEAN. You don't need a lot of pressure for these babies to dip you in your turn. I love them!!! November 16, 2015
Great Weekend Warrior Tire This tire is great for the weekend canyon carver, plenty of grip and heats up pretty quickly. Haven't had the chance to see what it can do on the track but will soon and I have plenty of confidence it will perform well. So far I have put about 1000 miles on it so I will see how long it lasts, I only take the bike out for weekends so it should last me quite some time. November 9, 2015
50/50 Track Day Tires on a Party Barge? You Bet! I had some trepidation about putting these on my 606lbs. touring rig. My OEM tires were Michelin PR4 GT's which were excellent. The PR4 GT rear tire lasted 5,551 miles. The front would have lasted another 3,000 miles based on how much tread it had left. I wanted to try something even stickier, and the Q3's were $160 cheaper than another set of PR4 GT's. I figured why not? Turns out these tires work great on heavy bikes too. I ride the canyons and sometimes there are puddles of gravel freshly fallen from the cliff sides. More than a few times I've committed to a corner at a moderate lean angle and rode right though the gravel with no drama. I can actually feel the tires roll over the small rocks, pick 'em up, and throw them out the back. These tires are 100% confidence inspiring. I just took off the rear tire at 3,777 miles because it was starting to slip under heavy throttle. The front tire looks like it will last another 2,000 miles. Considering how inexpensive these tires are, they're worth every penny, and are a good value. I'd rather pay less for these Q3's and get new tires more often than the longer lasting PR4 GT's. Check out the photos of my tread wear from 3,777 miles of riding. BTW, I'm 300lbs. and my front wheel is usually hovering so if you're a normal rider on a 450lbs sport bike these tires will last quite a bit longer. Check out my video to see how these tires were ridden. October 30, 2015
I love these I did a 271 mile ride from NC to VA in the rain going 80 mph on 95 and they handled as if it was dry i love these tires September 29, 2015
I'm hooked! From what I gathered from Anthony's reviews, I took these over Pirelli's because they are engineered to last longer (just slightly) on the street whereas Pirelli's are (just slightly) better engineered for the track. Regardless, both were highly recommended to me by my track coaches and so far these tires feel grippy and handle well. I'm certain that with either tire brand I went with both would suit my needs very well and I'd be happy. September 28, 2015
