“The American Made Tire Rebate.”  When you purchase a set of two select Dunlop tires, you can send in a Mail-In Rebate to receive a $40 Visa Prepaid Card.  The select Dunlop tires that you can choose from are the American Elite, Elite 3, and the Sportmax Q3.  All three lines of tires will deliver amazing performance and handling to your motorcycle.

American Elite

Dunlop’s American Elite is the only aftermarket tire line for Harley-Davidson motorcycles that is designed, tested and manufactured in the U.S.A.

  • The American Elite is constructed with a Multi-Tread rear tire compound that delivers enhanced tire mileage along with supreme handling.
  • Tire is belted for extra load capacity.
  • Sidewall design proudly features the American Elite name, Made-in-U.S.A. logo and Multi-Tread logo.
  • Tubeless, bias-ply construction.

Elite 3

Available in radial, bias and bias-belted, the Dunlop Elite 3 is a premium high-mileage tire for all touring motorcycles.

  • The E3 tread pattern provides class-leading, wet-pavement performance.  Rain on grooves, steel bridge decks and paint stripes are no longer an issue with the grip of the E3.
  • Tire construction provides a solid feel through turns for more confident cornering.
  • Rear tire constructed with Dunlop’s Multi-Tread technology for longer wear in the center of the tire with a lateral-grip compound in each shoulder.

Sportmax Q3

The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is the next generation of sport tire featuring Dunlop’s new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT).

  • By using carbon fiber reinforcement it the tire sidewalls, the Q3 delivers exceptional cornering performance and feel.
  • The Q3 tread pattern is more aggressive and uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance performance in wet weather.
  • The Q3 rear tire is constructed with Intuitive Response Profile technology allowing greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering.
  • The Q3 offers superb grip, stability, steering and longevity on both the street and the track.
