DUNLOP DIREZZA Z3
Available from Stuckey Tyre Service
Stuckey Tyre Service explains the Direzza Z3 is Dunlop’s Extreme Performance Summer tyre designed for the drivers of sports cars, performance sedans and track day vehicles who are looking for near-motorsports levels of traction and handling in a tyre that can be driven on the street, in addition to autocross, drifting and track day events.
Currently used as the Toyota 86 Racing Series control tyre, it is also now available in 29 sizes from 14” to 19”.
Stuckey Tyre Service says the Direzza Z3 utilises Dunlop’s latest high-performance compound, which features motorsports-derived polymers that accomplish the normally conflicting goals of enhanced grip and enhanced wear characteristics.
It explains the updated tread pattern features a wider centre rib and lower void ratio to put more rubber on the ground in the contact patch, and the reshaped tread profile changes the shape of the footprint to ensure more uniform contact pressure while turning, aiding grip and improving wear.
The two main, circumferential grooves allow water to flow through the footprint to resist aquaplaning.
The internal construction of the Direzza Z3 is designed for optimised durability and maximum handling response.
The two-ply polyester casing sits beneath two wide, high-strength steel belts, which help stabilise the footprint, says Stuckey Tyre Service, while two kevlar cap plies provide reinforcement for enhanced control of the contact patch and high-speed durability.
