Our DUNLOP “SP SPORT MAXX GT600 DSST” was specifically designed as tires to maximize the performance of super sportscars such as the “NISSAN GT-R.” Incorporating cutting-edge run-flat tire technology*1 while also boasting outstanding sporty handling performance, these tires have been equipped as factory standard tires on each iteration of the “NISSAN GT-R” since the 2011 Model, and so have played an important supporting role in the ongoing evolution of the GT-R Series. For the new GT-R models, our latest “SP SPORT MAXX GT600 DSST” tires feature our brand-new “Nano Black*2” design, which not only heightens the impact of the DUNLOP logo, but also serves to reduce air resistance.
