Dunlop’s new Roadsmart sport-touring Multi-Tread tires have a hard compound center stripe for long life, and its softer Qualifier compound around the shoulders for outstanding cornering grip.

As the day progressed, my confidence increased, and despite an enforced emergency braking maneuver entering a turn, the Roadsmarts never lost traction. The Roadsmart certainly exceeded my exacting expectations. (Click image to enlarge)
