About Dunlop Tires

Dunlop Tires is based in Akron, Ohio and produces over 22 million tires annually at its facilities in 22 different countries. Its tires are designed specifically for high performance; they are made not only for cars, but trucks, competitive-grade go-karts, ATVs and motorcycles as well. For over 125 years, Dunlop has worked to improve upon the original pneumatic tire that started the company.

Brief History of Dunlop Tires

The first Dunlop tires were crafted in Belfast in 1888, when John Boyd Dunlop outfitted his son’s tricycle with sheets of canvas coated in liquid rubber to smooth the ride. Models with steel rods rolled out in 1922. Five years later, Captain Malcolm Campbell broke the land speed record with Dunlop tires, and he’d beat it once again under the same circumstances.

Most of the tire company’s history is comprised of numerous victories at La Mans and other prestigious races. Dunlop has developed a reputation for being the go-to company for high-performance tires.
