The granddaddy of tyre manufacturers, Dunlop is the original. Dunlop is part of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Corporation with its headquarters in Birmingham, just yards from the original Fort Dunlop, the previous global headquarters of the Dunlop Tire Company. Dunlop, founded by the claimed innovator of the pneumatic tyre, John Boyd Dunlop, has the greatest corporate experience in the world of tyre manufacturing, and it is this heritage that has established the company as one of the forerunners in tyre development for over 130 years.
The company boasts one of the world’s largest dedicated motorsport divisions, supplying thousands of tyres every week to global motorsport events. As with many of the large manufacturers, it is this experience in the demanding world of motorsport that filters down to its commercial operations and produces tyres that are suitable for almost any condition the average family car is likely to encounter.
