May 9, 2019   Tier Suppliers

Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. announced that it will be supplying the high-performance Dunlop Grandtrek PT20 tyres to Toyota Motor Corporation for use as factory standard tyres on their new model RAV4 for the North American market, which went on sale in Dec, 2018. The company has also started supplying Dunlop "SP Sport Maxx 050 DSST CTT" runflat tyres for the Japanese model of the Lexus LS.

In order to help the new RAV4 fulfill its core concept of being a "Robust Accurate Vehicle with 4 Wheel Drive," the Dunlop Grandtrek PT20 tyres utilise a proprietary tread compound that not only provides outstanding steering stability and wet grip performance, but also excels in terms of fuel efficiency and wear resistance for balanced, all-around high performance both on/off-road and for the environment.


Dunlop "SP Sport Maxx 050 DSST CTT" runflat tyres feature balanced high performance in terms of both steering stability and riding comfort. At the same time, while helping the LS to achieve the "Superior Maneuverability" and "Refined Riding Comfort" that one would expect from a flagship Lexus sedan, these tyres also provide exceptional safety thanks to cutting-edge runflat tyre technology.


Dunlop's runflat tyres also come as OE on the American model of the Lexus LS.
