Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. is combining its Dunlop Signature and new Dunlop SP Sport Signature tires to establish a new Signature powerline.

The SP Sport Signature will be rolled out in early 2007, Brent Strandberg, channel marketing manager, Dunlop consumer tires, told at this week's SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas. Nev.

When finished, the new Dunlop Signature powerline will range in size from 14 inches to 20 inches.

Also new in the Dunlop brand is the Direzza Z1, a tire for road racing, autocross and other competitive applications. "We'll bring in 17 different sizes, some 15-inch sizes, some 16-inch sizes but predominantly 17 and 18 inches."

It will be available this spring.
