Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Tire Combo Njvig64 - Tinton Falls, NJ, USA Nothing beats a new set of skins "I drive a 2014 Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R. I was able to squeeze 7,000 miles out of the tires, though they were way over due and very unsafe. These new Dunlop tires ride like a dream. I haven't really pushed them to their limit yet, but so far they handle very well. After riding on a bad set of stock tires it has altered my riding perception. I am starting to trust these new tires and put them through some moves. It feels great to weave in and out of traffic jams with confidence. The new tires have really elevated my driving experience. A really important factor that I forgot to mention is that these tires are made in AMERICA. As an American I feel it is my duty to buy as many American products that I can afford. Americans should support Americans......it's the American way!!"
Dunlop: A History of Firsts
John Dunlop thought his invention for his son's tricycle was a first. Once he successfully tested his pneumatic tire he patented it in December 1888. Two years later his patent was declared invalid because Robert Thomson patented the idea more than 40 years earlier. But we know who the real winner is here. Know anyone riding around on Thomson tires?
The Dunlop name in rubber and tires is long and complicated. It started in 1889 as the Dunlop Pneumatic Tyre Co. Ltd when it commercialized John Dunlop's invention. Over the years the Dunlop name encompassed numerous products and ventures and was bought, sold and merged with several times. Despite the perceived turbulence, Dunlop is a strong brand and is now sold in Europe and the United States by Goodyear. Dunlop has manufactured motorcycle tires in Buffalo, NY since 1920 and today it is the only major motorcycle tire manufactured in the US.
Though John Dunlop lost his patent he was the first to actually make the pneumatic tire. His legacy for firsts continues to this day. Dunlop was first to introduce the use of Kevlar belts in motorcycle tires and they produced the first OEM radial street tire. Dirt bike riders can thank Dunlop for the first 20-inch front tire for off-road use and the company was first to manufacture premium tires for mini-bike riders.
