About this Manufacturer:
Dunlop is the father of the modern tire as we know it. Their history dates back to 1888 when John Boyd Dunlop developed the first useable pneumatic tire after watching his son struggle to ride his tricycle on solid rubber tires. This invention spearheaded an industry that eventually evolved into the high-performance tires we see today. Dunlop has also become a name that is synonymous with racing. The Dunlop banner is flown at race tracks all over the world and they have a huge trophy case to prove their dominance in motorsports. Although well known as a British tire brand, Dunlop is now owned by tire giant Goodyear and has a substantial presence in North America thanks to Goodyear’s massive headquarters in Akron, Ohio. The brand continues to represent performance and quality, and although it may cost a bit extra, most people find Dunlop tires to be worth the investment.
