Dunlop is one of the world’s leading tire manufacturer in high and ultra-high performance tires. The tire brand stands for sportiness, emotion and driving pleasure. At the same time, the name also stands for one of the most important and most revolutionary inventions in the history of mobility: the pneumatic tire. It was invented in 1888 by the Scottish veterinarian John Boyd Dunlop.

Motorsport belongs to the genotype of Dunlop, so to speak. From the beginning, Dunlop’s success in nearly all areas of motorsport stretches throughout the company´s history. Whether as an exclusive tire partner or in direct competition, whether in the top-class or newcomers area, whether on two or on four wheels – the incentive is to supply always the best possible tires for top performances.

This not only applies to the race track. Also in public traffic, Dunlop drivers can trust in the fact that their tire provides maximum grip for maximum driving pleasure. This is because the technologies for our street tires derive directly from our motorsport-know-how.

As an official partner of BMW Motorsport, Dunlop supplies racing tires in the size of 265/660 R18 exclusively developed for the premier season of the BMW M235i Racing Cup. In addition, Dunlop also offers professional technical support as well as tire service for all BMW teams at the race track.

The brand with the Michelin Man has been a reliable racing sports partner of BMW for years.
