This tyre is considered as the most comfortable and silent tyres in its competitive tyre range. While developing the Dunlop VEURO VE302 215/55 R16, Dunlop also developed an acoustic measuring device, “Acoustic Holography” to find road noise level.
As the weight of the edge of the strip compresses the middle section of regular tyres, acoustic resonance is generated in the hollow area. To address this, Dunlop has added a special sound-absorbing sponge to disperse the tyre impact and decrease tyre’s internal resonance. In internal tests, Dunlop has verified an improvement of ~1.5dB(A) at speed of 40 km/h.
In Dunlop VEURO VE302 215/55 R16, Dunlop has designed an asymmetric 45% inner – 55% outer tread in order to achieve better all round handling of the tread pattern. A 10% increase in stiffness of the longitudinal lateral grooves of the external block enhances cornering performance when the blocks are in contact with a larger road contact area.
