Goodyear introduces Dunlop Direzza 'Star Spec'

March 17, 2008

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has introduced a new Dunlop brand product, the Direzza Sport Z1 "Star Spec" summer tire, available in 20 sizes, ranging from 15 to 18 inches.

The new tire features Dunlop's “Star Spec” tread compound, "which helps a performance car’s initial dry grip during sanctioned amateur driving events, such as autocross and high-performance track-events hosted by regional car clubs," say Goodyear officials.

It contains "a high-response" directional tread pattern with circumferential grooves, Goodyear's JointLess Band technology and other features.

The Direzza Sport Z1 "Star Spec" replaces the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1, which was introduced in August 2007.
