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
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
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 guarantee.
Very good dry and wet traction
Tires provides solid cornering grip and overall
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 model.
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.
