Dunlop Q3+ Plus Sportmax Tires

The groundbreaking Dunlop Q3 Plus boasts exciting refinements and improvements over the highly celebrated Q3, which has earned a reputation as one of the very best high performance track / street tires available – and quite possibly THE best in terms of performance per dollar.

In the “Plus” iteration of the Q3 – the only hypersport tire made in the U.S.A – Dunlop is touting an 80% redesign, with only the best features and the confidence inspiring character remaining untouched from the previous Q3.

Major updates come via new tech and a new center compound in the rear MT Multitread tire – resulting in both higher mileage and improved cornering performance. The Q3+ retains the corner-crushing CFT “Carbon Fiber Technology” sidewall reinforcement pioneered in the Q3 and features a very similar, steep, aggressive tread pattern.

The major trick up Dunlop’s sleeve for the Q3+ is especially exciting for riders looking to level up at the track – the Q3 Plus marks the inception of Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the Q3+ rear tire, allowing for greater latitude in choosing a new line mid-corner, while also providing remarkably linear, predictable steering. That means a wider margin for error so you can push yourself and your bike to new limits at the track.

Dunlop Tire Pressure Information

Dunlop Q3+ Highlights

  • Only hypersport tire made in the U.S.A., the Q3+ was designed at Dunlop’s Buffalo, NY headquarters, and manufactured in the Buffalo plant on the same high-tech production equipment as Dunlop’s racing tires.
  • Dunlop’s Huntsville Proving Grounds is the only motorcycle tire test facility of its kind in North America, and the Q3+ was tested extensively at Dunlop’s Huntsville Proving Grounds as well as several racetracks in the U.S.
  • Dunlop’s Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) employed in the Q3+ uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel.
  • Aggressive Q3+ tread pattern uses minimal tread grooves that are long in length to enhance wet-weather performance.
  • Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the Q3+ rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering.
  • MT Multi-Tread™ technology in the Q3+ rear tire uses a silica-infused, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for longer tread life, and special lateral grip compounds on the left and ride shoulders for outstanding grip.
  • The all-new Q3+ offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track.

Dunlop Tire Warmer Procedures

Dunlop recommends that tire warmers be set at 158 – 176F (70°-80°C)  for 45 minutes to 1 hour (maximum); tire performance degradation may occur if tires are subjected to repeated tire warming cycles, and/or temperatures/times in excess of these.

Set the hot starting tire pressure directly after removing tire warmers before entering road course

Dunlop motorcycle tire pressures may vary based upon current track conditions but these are base recommendations:

Dunlop motorcycle race tires do not have issues with “heat cycling” that may affect other tire brands.

If Dunlop tires begin to lose grip it is more of issue of a loss of rubber than heat cycling.

New Dunlop tires are their maximum traction level as the level of rubber on the tire is highest. The tires run hottest at this point in the tire’s life. As Dunlop tires lose rubber they begin to run cooler and slowly lose their maximum grip.

If the Dunlop race tire is marked Bi-Directional (see FAQ above) then that tire may be mounted and used in either direction.

Twist the Throttle With Us!

When Dunlop mentions Bi-Directional is essentially means that those particular Dunlop motorcycle tires can be mounted in any direction. Sometimes this is known as flipping. Some tracks may favor right or left hand corners such as Palm Beach International Raceway or Jennings GP and being able to reverse the tire direction can give riders potentially more options.

Dunlop DOT race tires such as the Dunlop GP-A Pro tire represent street legal race tires. DOT is short for Department of Transportation so those tires marked as DOT represent Department of Transportation approved for public road use.
