Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Tires

Use the drop down above to purchase individual tires or save money and purchase a set.

The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is the next-generation sport bike tire and successor to Dunlop's popular Q2 tire, featuring Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) which incorporates carbon fiber reinforcements into the sidewall. The Dunlop Q3 Sportmax also features an updated tread pattern with longer grooves to better evacuate water which helps wet weather performance and Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel. IRP provides a larger, more consistent contact patch as you lean into corners, as well as linear steering and handling at various lean angles. IRP tires also offer phenomenal steering and handling characteristics thanks to a taller profile along with sides that taper in more aggressively. 

The new Sportmax Q3 represents yet another direct benefit yielded from Dunlop’s AMA Pro Road Racing involvement. As the control tire supplier for AMA Pro Road Racing, Dunlop invested in new tire-producing machinery necessary to accommodate race tire production at Dunlop’s Buffalo, NY, manufacturing facility. These same high-tech machines are used to produce the all-new Q3 rear tire.


  • Dunlop’s Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel
  • Aggressive new Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance
  • Intuitive Response Profile™ (IRP) technology in the rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering
  • MT Multi-Tread™ technology in the rear tire uses a tough, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for excellent traction and longer tread life, plus special lateral grip compounds for outstanding grip
  • Dunlop tires with MT technology incorporate a tough, cool-running long-wearing compound in the center of the tread to provide enhanced straight-line stability and excellent traction under acceleration, plus long tread life
  • New Q3 tire compounds were derived from road-race compounds to yield maximum sportbike performance
  • The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track
  • Designed, tested and manufactured in America, the Dunlop Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires

Rated excellent versus the competition, so I bought them.
Today, my friend's son put these on my 2003 ZX-9R. This is my first bike and weather and work have prevented me from riding much. My friend's son is the top motorcycle mechanic at a big shop in town and he put them on for me (along with the Driven steel sprockets and EK 3D 520 chain). His boss lets him do side work at the shop when it is closed so he did my bike for me. He said it normally costs $195 for the work and he wanted $50. I paid him $100, since I charge half rate when I do side work. Besides, I couldn't see giving him only $50 for all the work. He has tons of riding experience and really liked the tires. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes with the same setup when he needs to replace his chain, sprockets, and tires on his GSXR-750. Motomummy's prices are awesome. With his employee discount, he can save only $2 on the tires versus what I paid here!

Best Prices for a set of these ANYWHERE!
Didnt even need tires, my Q2s only have 1500 miles on them, but had to take advantage of the sale plus rebate.....

These tires are known to be sticky as hell, and wear pretty well for such a tire.

The mummys prices cannot be beat!!

Thanks Again!!

Love me sum Dunlop's
Excuse my terrible grammar on the title, I couldn't help myself.
On to the review!

Fantastic tires. I run all my track days with these only, as a benefit they happen to be the cheapest as well.

Incredible grip, Grip for days as they say.

however! I only suggest these tires if you're a 50/50 rider or more (as in 50 track/50 street) if you commute more then you ride hard then go with something that will last a bit longer but still has decent grip like the Dunlop qualifier street tire, the reason I say this is because these tires will wear out quickly, my buddy ran his all the way to the belt (I know, he's a retard, but in his defense he was short on funds at the time) and his tires were at 7500 miles. I usually get about 4000-5000 til I need to change mine.

all in all, excellent tire ill never stop riding them unless I change to slicks and i'll never stop ordering from Motomummy!

Better than glue
Got theses tire to replace the stock dunlop tires on my 07 CBR600rr there much better than the stock ones. The heat up fast and and stick great. Turn in is much better and once leaned over they love to stay there. Motomummys great price on these is even more of a reason to try them out!

Great tires!!!
I have had these tires for 3 months now on my daily ride (07 GSXR 600.) Ive done 2 track days and 2 days up and down tail of the dragon in NC. I love these tires and plan to continue to use these until i move from grp 2 to grp 3 at the track. I have not experienced any slip and the tires still look to have plenty of tread. I expect to get through the fall season with these.

Best Tires Yet
I bought these tires because of the carbon reinforcement. I was a little skeptic on how they would perform and last, yet I am still being blown away by how sticky these tires are as well as the longevity of the tread!! I will buy these tires again and again because for the price you can not buy better tires!!

Amazing Tires
These are the best tire I have ever ran. They grip for days, and you can really tip the bike over well on them. If you are on a 1000 try out the 190/55, it will do amazing things to your bikes handling.

Amazing Tire
I used the Dunlop Q3s for a track day at Circuit of the Americas last weekend June 21. I maintained 30 PSI throughout the day and checked the pressure between track sessions. I have to say I was totally impressed with the performance of the Q3s. Very gripping and they felt solid I never had a doubt when going into a corner. Great tires highly recommended! Thanks Motomummy for an incredible price and how can you beat free mount and balance! Plus I got to talk to some of the nicest people in the Austin area! Great job Motomummy!
