Dunlop Signature Tire Review & Rating

Designed for drivers who want a tire that not only rides comfortably and provides all-season performance, but also comes in at a budget friendly price, Dunlop has introduced the Signature touring all-season model.

One of the areas that Dunlop has focused on with the Signature is ride comfort. They utilize their unique Elliptical Beads and Constant Gauge Chafer to create more consistent handling and enhanced ride quality. A stability rib around the circumference of the tire adds increased steering response and control whether in town or on the highway.

Signature Tire From Dunlop

For added wet surface handling, Dunlop has added Evaqua Grooves and circumferential grooves to evacuate more water away from the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. It also improves overall noise reduction.

Inside the tire you’ll find two steel belts that work with Dunlop’s Jointless Band Technology and their Dimensionally Stable Polyester Technology, which increases the ability of the tread to maintain its shape for a smoother ride and better highway performance at higher speeds. In addition, it is also designed to provide a longer treadlife to the tire.

Dunlop includes either a 60,000 or 75,000 mile tread warranty depending on the speed rating of the tire you select.

Pros

  • Dry traction and steering response is above average   
  • Tire is comfortable and quiet to ride on   
  • Excellent warranty coverage   
  • Lower price   

Cons

  • Wet handling could be better   

Overall Thoughts

(Note: Dunlop has replaced this model with the newly updated Signature II, which delivers excellent overall performance. Read our review here.) 

We rank the Signature from Dunlop in the middle of the pack for standard all-season tires. It performs well in some areas like ride comfort on the highway, as well as dry traction and steering response for around town driving.

On the other hand it could use improvements with wet road handling. The lower cost with the Signature does make it a worthwhile choice for drivers looking for a long lasting tire.
