The Signature II from Dunlop is designed to provide all-season touring performance with a
more comfortable ride quality and sporty handling. Built for drivers of coupes, sedans, minivans, and crossovers,
the Signature II has become one of Dunlop's more popular models.
An all-season tread compound and symmetric tread pattern are optimized to provide more even treadwear and a
longer overall tread life. Larger outside shoulder blocks enhance dry traction and add increased cornering grip,
which is an area this tire does very well in.
Handling on wet road surfaces is made safer through Dunlop's circumferential and unique Evaqua Grooves. These
grooves are specially designed to pump water from under the tire, which makes for safer driving and a reduced risk
of hydroplaning. Multi-directional sipes around the tread further enhance wet traction and provides added grip on
snow covered roads.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts and VersaLoad Technology that adds strength and durability, as
well as improved handling. A polyester cord body adds to ride comfort and a smoother overall ride. Sizes are
available from 14-18 inches, and it comes with a T, H or V-speed rating. Dunlop also provides a 65,000 mile tread
Very good dry and wet traction
Tires provides solid cornering grip and overall stability
Long lasting tread life
Road noise as tire ages
Many times a second generation tire fails to live up to its billing, but this isn't the case with the Signature
II. We feel the performance, especially with dry traction and cornering grip, is a step above the first Signature
Expect a smooth and more comfortable ride with responsive steering and excellent stability at higher speeds.
Road noise is minimal for the most part until the tire reaches its later stages of wear. Winter handling is good
overall, but we would like to see improvement on icy road surfaces, although this is not a snow tire.
Tread life is very good on Signature II, something that has been mentioned in many driver reviews and ratings.
Overall, this Dunlop model is a good choice in touring tires. We give it a rank in the upper half of its class.
